When people hear the terms one-story and bungalow, it may indicate something that's simple and plain to them because of its lack of levels. But that's when they got it all wrong. Bungalows can truly be designed in a grand style that won't appear overwhelming like in other two-story or mansion designs. Check out these 5 strikingly beautiful bungalows that might be short in size, but big in character!

1. Thick wooden panels

One building material that's forever versatile and dynamic is wood. Wood can come in all shapes and sizes, styles and designs! It could fit perfectly in any corner of the house, especially the exteriors. In this house facade, thick wooden panels flourish in certain areas of the property. It gives warmth to the home and an Asian vibe to the overall design. The natural color of rustic wood also blend in perfect harmony with the green surroundings.

2. Glass details

If wood shows warmth and nature, glass, on the other hand, exudes such sophistication and a level of classiness. When you thought a bungalow could be simple, glass will surely have it the other way. An abundance of glass elements, like shown in this picture, will instantly make your bungalow a luxurious residential property! Wide and long panels of glass windows also give an opportunity to give a glimpse of the house's stunning interiors. 

3. Sleek and sharp
