Split-level home designs and floor plans (also referred to as split-level house plans) gained popularity in the 1950s. These cool designs are relatives of the ranch style house plan. Split-level home designs boast horizontal lines, a landing at the entry that leads upstairs or downstairs, and a low-pitched roof. The exterior of split-level home designs typically showcases a minimal façade that is sleek and contemporary. With three levels of living space, split-level home designs and floor plans make it easy to carry on different activities, while maximizing space on smaller lots. These popular home designs usually feature a landing at the entry (that opens to the living, kitchen, and dining areas) that leads upstairs (to the bedrooms) and downstairs (to the basement). The basement may have additional bedrooms and could be used as a rec room. Typically, the basement includes the garage and extra storage space.
