What is a Duplex?
A Duplex is a two-unit home in which the floors are connected internally via a staircase. The floor plan can vary, but there must be two interconnected units – no more and no less. Hence, they are different from houses with two floors, as the two floors are generally separate and independent of each other. Duplexes can be seen as the middle ground between having two separate houses and having one huge, fully connected home – it is connected, but with independent areas.
One can argue that having a duplex is a luxury in itself. But we can always elevate the wow factor by adding thoughtful details. We recommend the following tricks to beautify the interiors of your duplex:
1. Statement Staircase
The staircase connecting the units is a quintessential feature of the duplex home. Why not add some pizzazz to it? You can go for a plant nook. Add indoor plants for a green space. You can use natural materials such as driftwood to create the steps. This will enhance the natural look. Add a sturdy metal railing for support. Or you can embrace a gothic look by adding a spiral staircase with gold-coloured railings
