Choosing a floor plan is one of the most important steps in the design process of building a new custom home. Designing your home’s floor plan lets you visualize how your home will form and function once the building process is completed. It also allows you to customize your home to accommodate your lifestyle and needs. Listed below are three helpful tips for choosing a floor plan to fit your new custom home.
How Much Space Do You Need?
Identifying how much space you’ll need should be one of your first considerations when choosing your new home’s floor plan. Asking yourself key questions about how your home’s design can accommodate your living needs is essential in determining the size of your home’s living space. For instance, how many bedrooms and bathrooms will you need? Do you want a large living room, kitchen, two stories, or extended outdoor living space? Do you require excess storage space like a mudroom, walk-in pantry, or built-in wall cabinets and drawers? Asking yourself these questions is necessary for helping you determine the design of your new custom home.
What’s the Purpose of the Space?
Along with knowing how much space you’ll need, it’s also important to consider the purpose of the space. You want to ensure that your floor plan is suited for your home, its occupants, and daily life, providing you with space, convenience, openness, flow, privacy, versatility, energy efficiency, appeal, form, and overall function, amongst other factors. For instance, if your home requires multifunctional rooms, an open floor plan design would be ideal because it provides excess living space and versatility.
What Are Your Plans for the Future?
Another key step in choosing a floor plan for your new home is to plan for the future. No one knows what the future entails; however, if you have specific goals and dreams that you’re aiming to reach that can significantly impact your daily life, it’s important to prepare your home in advance. For instance, if you plan to expand your family, it’s probably ideal for including extra bedrooms and bathrooms in your new custom home’s design. Another example is if you plan to start your own business or work from home in the future, an at-home office is another feature you should include.
