Part IV. Tips for Designing a Duplex Home

Now that you’ve got the basics down, let’s talk about making your 25x50 duplex genuinely excellent! With more space to work with, here are some tips to create a comfortable and stylish home:

  • Create a central space. Consider creating a central living area if you use the duplex together. This could be a spacious living room or a kitchen-dining combo - a place for everyone to gather and connect.
  • Add staircases for both sides. Since it’s a duplex, you’ll need separate staircases for each unit. Plan them efficiently to save space without sacrificing comfort.
  • Ensure proper ventilation. Proper ventilation is critical in any home but essential in a duplex. Make sure both units have good airflow to keep things fresh and comfortable.
  • Play with symmetry (or asymmetry). Symmetry can create a feeling of balance and spaciousness. Consider mirroring the layout of each unit for a classic look. However, you can also experiment with making each side of the duplex unique.
  • Maximize tall spaces in the center of the home. Duplexes often have tall walls in the center. Take advantage of this space with built-in shelves, lofts, or skylights to add functionality and a touch of drama.


Now that you’ve got the basics down, it’s time to try creating a duplex floor plan on your own. Remember the tips in this section and experiment with what looks good for you. After all, you’ll live in it and have to dedicate it to yourself. So, make a duplex floor plan that’s comfortable for you.
