If there are people who are benefited in more ways for living in a bungalow, they are the older people. They prefer it over other types of dwellings because it is much easier to clean, easier to decorate, easier to navigate, and of course, without all those stairs to climb. It is also a good place for toddlers because no stairs to explore and less chances of falling.

It looks so simple and yet it looks so neat and dainty.  The advantage of a small house over the big houses is its manageability, easier to decorate, and even much easier to buy stuffs because you don’t actually need big and expensive stuffs to fill it up.

Elevated houses are advisable for places that are easily flooded.  The elevation gives protection in case the place is prone to string typhoons and floods. Otherwise, it is also a nice idea that gives extra height to the bungalow.
