1 story or 2 story? What are your experiences?

So me and my husband are looking for a home to buy. For some reason he’s keen on 1 story homes since he grew up in them and likes them. I on the other hand have no experience with them but I don’t really like the idea of a bedroom on the ground floor….unless we can find a house where the bedroom faces the backyard and is private. We walked through a couple 1 story homes just to see and it all felt kind of claustrophobic to me, and the fact that you walk from 1 side to the other side and that’s your entire house…I do like the idea of not having to clean stairs anymore though. Also part of me worries because we live in South Florida and I like the idea of being able to escape to a 2nd floor if it floods….which would probably never happen but I like the option.

What are your experiences with this? Are there big pluses that I’m not thinking of? Or even more negatives I’m not thinking of?
