Tiny Home with a View, This striking design, plan 479-12, takes splendid advantage of a scenic lot. Walls of windows let light stream inside to illuminate the open living spaces. On the main level, the kitchen invites everyone to hang out at the island, where there's seating for four (and the range also lives here, letting you saute dinner without turning your back on guests). The upper level lets you store tons of books in a row of bookshelves. Grab a volume and hop into your big bed.
Trust your instincts on what “feels” right when choosing a floor plan. All of us have the ability to “feel” when a space feels comfortable and able to fit their needs. Take these instincts into consideration when touring different floor plans. You will be surprised how many styles of plans there are to choose from.

On the other hand, a family with teenagers could prefer for the maser bedroom to be separated by public spaces such as the living room and kitchen instead. Listen to what speaks to you when choosing a plan.

Try and strip away the gorgeous finishes, the upgraded carpet, color coordinated wallpaper and drapery and focus on the layout and flow of the rooms. This will help you make an informed decision when choosing a floor plan.
Imagine if you could walk the best model homes throughout the country, hunting for the latest design ideas for your new home? The next best thing -- for those of us who don’t have a six-figure travel budget -- may be to take a virtual tour through winning projects in industry design competitions. Even better is to take that guided tour from one of the country’s leading architects. Ed Binkley, a Tampa-based principal with BSB Design, recently mined the galleries for the latest trends. Here’s what he found.
