The bungalow house design is undoubtedly the most common modern house design in Nigeria. In the past, bungalows were inhabited by peasants but now it is a modern and cozy house designed for permanent residence of a large family. Having a bungalow house on the coast or on the shore of the lake surrounded by picturesque forests and the clean natural air is a dream mostly available to wealthy people. Modern bungalows usually have a unique horizontal orientation done to accommodate the necessary things on one floor. A modern bungalow can have several floors.

The duplex design is a budget comfortable country house, usually divided into two autonomous parts by common wall. In other words, it is a house with two apartments with two independent entrances. It is interesting that in different parts of the world (and even in different cities of one country) the concept “duplex” has different meanings. This Nigerian house plan design style is the best choice if your neighbours will be your parents, relatives or friends. Most often, duplex is a two-storey building. Much rarer, there are three-storey beautiful duplex house plans in Nigeria. In rare cases, duplexes may have one shared entrance hall (not two separate ones). This option is ideal for a large and happy family that likes to meet for family dinners, and the rest of the time is for preserving their personal space. As a rule, on the ground floor of each section, there is a kitchen, a dining room is often combined with living room, bathroom, and utility room. On the second, there is a bathroom and several bedrooms.
