Things to Remember When Shopping Floor Plans:

  • Not every floor plan fits your lifestyle. When looking at floor plans, remember to picture your own family in the space. Can you cook in that size kitchen? Is there enough home office space? Assess your lifestyle before choosing a floor plan. Do you like a single story or multistory home? Do you prefer an open floor plan or are individual rooms with partitions better?
  • Do not assume the sizes of rooms on a floor plan are adequate. We recommend that you measure your existing rooms and furniture before deciding on final sizes for a home. If you are not sure how large of a room you need, measure your existing furniture, tables and walking area to determine how much space you really need in your next floor plan, then add to it if you are trying to increase the amount of space in your next home.
  • Imagine your entertaining spaces fully occupied when deciding on a floor plan. For most homeowners dreaming of their ideal floor plan, they consider how nice it will be to have a few people over for drinks on the patio or entertaining friends and family during the holidays. Depending on your lifestyle, if you love to entertain, think about your home being fully occupied when planning the kitchen, dining room, and living room areas. This will ensure you plan room for mingling, eating, dancing, serving and of course walking through your home.
  • Location, Location… While you can modify your floor plan in the future, remember you cannot change the location. Do not make the mistake of falling in love with a floor plan and forgetting about the property and surroundings of your home. Keep your property’s views, location of the sun and neighbors in mind when determining the location of master bedrooms, outdoor patios, etc.
  • Remember storage space. It is understandable that homebuyers are more excited about their master bath than a linen closet. But do not underestimate the power of closets in your home design. Not only will they increase a home’s resale value, they will also help keep showpiece rooms much cleaner and more organized. Attics, storage cubbies and basements all need consideration when planning a house to ensure there is adequate space to hide birthday presents and store holiday decorations.
