In most settlements two-story houses could not be built at all.

When in the 90s of the last century in RussiaThere was a land ownership and the planning restrictions for the construction of residential buildings were abolished, many owners who built new individual houses built whole castles. Such houses with inconvenient planning, under the projects created by inexperienced in individual construction by architects, very quickly disappointed their owners. The rooms in them were too large, and their number exceeded the needs of one family.
As a result, it turned out that suchThey were used completely, nobody lived in huge uncomfortable rooms, but they had to spend a lot of money, time and effort to maintain them in a habitable form. And with the growth of tariffs for housing and communal services, these huge houses just ruined their owners, many of whom tried to sell them as quickly as possible. Today, those who are going to build a new apartment building, try not to repeat such mistakes and design it in accordance with the real needs of their families.

A bedroom for a person who lives permanently in the house must contain a wardrobe for clothes and clothes, or there must be a built-in niche for similar purposes somewhere in the back of the room. Therefore, for the master bedroom the size is 2.1 x 2.5 m or 2.8 x 2.5 sq. M. M will be optimal.
As for the kitchen, if the living area of the house is from 16 to 50 square meters. M, it will be enough to have a kitchen measuring 6-8 square meters. M, if the living area is more, increase the size of the kitchen to 10-14 square meters. M.
