A new year is just around the corner, and with it comes our choice picks for home plans and designs.

Duplexes have gotten a bad rap. They show up in neighborhoods with the same look, same floor plans and no room for imagination. They are often thought of as utilitarian dwellings that allow developers to squeeze more homes onto a lot. Duplexes, in other words, are practical and simple.

But it’s time to think differently and look at multi-family housing with new eyes.

Duplexes are going upscale, blending the best of single-family living with the convenience and affordability of simpler living. Large modern...
