House battery capacity

I''ve seen factors of 3 to 4 X used for the calculation of house battery bank capacity to daily electrical load. Ignoring, for the moment, other complicating factors such as on-board generating devices, # sustained days at load, etc., is anyone fimiliar with a rule of thumb for a first order estimate of AHr storage capacity to daily use?
