12 simple and dreamy white bungalows

Bungalow-style homes originally came from South Asia, but over the years the term has been used to describe grand upper-class homes and even laid-back Californian dwellings. No matter what the locale, there are a few elements that generally define this style of home. They are typically detached, have a single level and many contain a veranda and a small upper gable room too.

But the best thing about a bungalow home is that it has a low-rise, so it feels really relaxing. Let's take a look at 10 fine examples of this kind of home from German home builders Fingerhaus

1. NIVO 120 F

This modern single-storey house has a sprawling 120sqm of living space that includes two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen and a living room and dining room. Two sides of the home have a series of large sliding glass doors that open up to a terrace. This is an excellent style for those who want to make the most of a good garden area.

2. NIVO 95 F

This home has a simple modern box-like design that covers just over 95sqm. It has just three and a half rooms with a smart layout. The door canopy is optional, but provides good weather protection.

3. NIVO 95 plus

This is a larger version of the last home design. This one has a gable style roof for extra space and a broad outdoor terrace area.

4. NIVO 110 F

This version of the home has a terrace with large roof openings that give it a breezy, Mediterranean feel. From the exterior it looks quite private and inside it is sure to feel like a mini oasis.

5. NIVO 120 W

This version has a hipped roof that rises to two pitches. It has a slightly more classical feel than the other flat-roofed version of the home we have seen. 

6. NIVO 125 F

Our next bungalow covers 125sqm and has a vast 17sqm bedroom. There are two bathrooms and a great terrace beautifully integrated into the living area. We love the L-shaped pool.

7. NIVO 120 plus

Here we have a pent roof and a flat roof combined. This combination makes for some interesting intersection points between the spaces and a lot of interest in the roof lines.

8. NIVO 130 W

This version is similar to the hipped roof home we saw before. This time the terrace runs in a straight line for a more classical look. This is a good design for those who want to orientate the focus towards a good back garden or outdoor entertaining area.

9. NIVO 130 plus

Bungalows typically cover one single level, so this one is definitely pushing the boundaries of the term a little. However, the double-storey volume in this home does have some strong visual links to the gable room seen in more classic bungalow designs. 

10. NIVO 140 F

Nothing quite brings up the feel of summer luxury like a flat roof with a cool white line. This one traces the length of the 141sqm home to create a beautiful sweeping line.

11. NIVO 140 W

This charming hipped roof home has plenty of floor length glass doors. This is a great design for those who want to make the most of a good surrounding area and bring a little nature into the home.

12. NIVO 145 W

This lovely white cottage has an L-shaped design that partially encircles a great outdoor patio. It's a classical design that can be seen in many a neighbourhood.
