Different House Types In Nigeria

Some house designs have come and gone over the years. The fundamental idea of a home, however—a location where one can find shelter—remains. With the development of smart home technologies and advancements in building technology, it may be argued that today's homes are the most opulent and comfortable ones yet.

Similar to the American ideal, many Nigerians aspire to possess their own home. The number of bedrooms, bathrooms, size, location and other factors should all be taken into account when choosing the appropriate home for your family and daily needs.

This article will discuss some of the most common styles of homes being constructed in Nigeria right now pictures included. This will assist you in locating an appropriate residential property, whether it be in Lagos, Abuja, or another part of the nation.

MANSION
A mansion is a large, luxurious residence with typical square footage of over 5,000 square feet. However, the definition of a mansion is subjective and location-based. A mansion is a type of house that is above average in terms of grandeur, elegance, and quality for the neighbourhood. This is consistent with how the wealthy house themselves.

The size of a property, together with the number of rooms and baths, all contribute to the definition of a mansion, but there are other distinguishing characteristics as well, such as entertainment elements, recreational areas, and opulent finishes. Grand staircases, crystal chandeliers, spacious foyers, expansive gardens, swimming pools, tennis courts, home automation, and other luxurious facilities are examples of this.

Nigeria is home to several mansions, some of the most remarkable of which are located in Abuja, Kaduna, Lagos, and Port Harcourt.

BUNGALOW
Typically, a bungalow is a one-story house, cottage, or cabin. It might be fully or partially removed. Originally from South Asia, bungalows got their name from the Bengal area of India.

Bungalows are typically modest in size, measured in square meters. Having said that, you can now find spacious bungalows that mix technology and beautiful architecture to accommodate the more urban lifestyles most people lead today.

Bungalows are inexpensive to build and simple to maintain due to their tiny size. As a result, they offer working-class Nigerians an affordable housing choice.

FLATS
Today, one of the most common types of housing is flat. A complex of numerous individual residences piled on top of and next to one another is an apartment building. Each apartment serves as the resident's home or living quarters.

As each apartment is only a small portion of the entire structure, it provides less privacy than other types of housing. A person who owns a flat gets access to shared spaces including parks, playgrounds, rooftops, and fitness centres.

As Nigeria's population has become increasingly urbanized, apartments have grown in favour. Flats are typically significantly more affordable to purchase than other housing types due to the benefits of building vertically in terms of saving space.

PENTHOUSE
A penthouse apartment is a space on the top floor of a hotel or apartment complex with multiple floors. A penthouse's luxurious features or components are what set it distinct from other residences.

In a particular market, penthouses are frequently the most costly types of dwelling. These homes are the biggest, most luxurious, and have the greatest views in a certain apartment complex. Penthouses are therefore associated with an opulent way of life. They can frequently be found in Nigeria's largest cities, including Lagos, Abuja, and Port Harcourt.

TERRACED HOUSE
A single-family dwelling with two or three levels is known as a terrace, terrace house, townhouse, or row house. A row of terrace homes is placed next to one another in a gated estate, on a street, or in a group of terraces that have been connected.

Terraces are mirror reflections of one another since they often have similar fronts and heights. In highly crowded cities, they are intended to hold as many people as possible. The "end of terrace" refers to the final residence in a row of terraced homes.

Terraces have become more popular in some areas, especially in Abuja and portions of Lagos, because they are typically cheaper than detached and semi-detached residences.

DETACHED HOUSE
The detached house is another common house form in Nigeria. These are located in the wealthy areas of Lagos, Abuja, Kano, and other significant Nigerian cities.

Detached homes have some stunning architecture and are often associated with the wealthy and famous. They are frequently equally as opulent as mansions, although being smaller — of course, depending on tastes and how they are finished/furnished. They typically consist of two or more levels and have their private entrances that open onto a secure compound.

People who value privacy and those with larger families might choose detached homes.

DUPLEX
A duplex in Nigeria is a house with two distinct units on two different floors placed on top of one another like apartments. A duplex is essentially like living in two different dwellings.

As a general rule, duplexes contain at least two levels with functional flats on each floor, making them ideal for larger families. Triplex and fourplex are terms used to describe similar buildings with three or four floors or dwellings.

Depending on how the duplex is built or organized, it may also be referred to as a detached, semi-detached, or terraced house in Nigeria.



Knowing which kind of home will best suit your needs is crucial whether you plan to build your own house or buy one that is being built or has already been built. We have discussed some of the most common house types in Nigeria nowadays in this article. You are likely to discover something that meets your taste and budget, from flats to bungalows to mansions.
