Features of duplex house interior design

The important features of duplex house interior design that you should be aware of

Double-height walls/ceilings

Most duplex houses will have double-height (meaning high) ceilings, which means tall walls.

So, you have a lot of area on the walls.

You can put your mind to work and do wall interior decor extensively.

Privacy issue

Privacy becomes a big issue especially in the placement of the connection between the living units and the outside.

For example, if the connection is a staircase.

How should you position the staircase so as to give privacy to the occupants of both units?

Should each unit have a separate staircase straight to the outside?

Layout planning

How should you ensure both elements of the home have access to all the facilities?

For example, take a duplex that has living units on top of one another.

How should the bottom unit have access to the terrace?

How should the top unit have access to the basement?

Layout planning for a duplex house should take these issues into account.

Cost projection to build a duplex home in Bangladesh

There are a lot of factors that go into the cost of building a duplex home in Bangladesh.
