When you finally find the perfect new home it will be a dream come true for you and your family. However, before you select a floor plan for your new home, you should consider how profoundly your home’s floor plan and features affect your life. Take note of these design considerations when shopping for a new construction home and communicate your wants and needs to your home builder.
- House Size
Ask yourself if you want a large, spacious home or a smartly designed smaller home. Look at the floor plan design, and make sure it has the number of rooms you need for all of the members of your household. You may decide you can maximize space efficiency by assigning certain rooms to serve dual functions, like using the home office to double as a guest room for out-of-town visitors.
- Main Living Areas
Consider whether you prefer the living room, dining room, and kitchen as three separate rooms or three specific spaces within one very large room. An open room with all three will allow to you see your guests better while entertaining, while separate walled rooms allow you to assign different themes to each. If you want to add fixtures to increase the resale value of your home, consider upgrading countertops to a natural stone material like granite or choosing upgraded and energy-efficient appliances. You should also consider flooring, doors, and paint when designing your new home to ensure that you will be happy with your space for years to come.
If you want to have spaces for relaxing and exercising in the master bedroom, you’ll need to look for a home with a larger space. If you want to design a room that is suited for children, consider laying down a kid-friendly carpet.
