Similarly, if you plan to encourage visitors to go outside, it helps if the door to the porch or deck is located in the family room or great room. It’s less likely to be used if it’s in the nook or bedroom. Parties are the one time when your entry hall is put to the test. It’s nice to have enough space to greet guests at the door. Ample front-hall closets used to be a given in new-home design. These days, you need to double-check to make sure they are big enough for guests to leave coats, gloves, hats, and maybe even boots. Having an office or guest room near the front door for leaving these items is a nice luxury, as illustrated by Gardner Plan 929-29, above.
The best parties are the ones where you can meet new people in informal social settings, engage in intimate conversations with friends, graze for food and drink, and maybe even watch a game. Achieving that level of enjoyment requires public rooms with a mix of settings – for standing and talking, sitting and conversing, eating, and television watching. It’s fun to think about how moving some furniture on party days might accommodate these functions.
Decide what type of dwelling type fits your location. Depending on where you live could dictate what type of floor plan will best suit your family. Dwellings such as single-family homes give the ability to have outdoor space for a yard and backyard and provide more space to spread out in. An attached home similar to brownstones or condos in a urban area could also meet your “single family home” needs but divided amongst a multi-level floor plan. Split-level floor plans means your entire floors are split to separate levels and don’t consume the entire footprint of your home. Decide which of these types are found in your city.
Keep your views unobstructed. Keep the Space Open. Allowing open views from each area to the next is key in open floor plans. Be stylish but strategic with placement; don’t clutter the sight lines with tall bookcases or inappropriately large furniture or accessories. For example, an arch lamp over the sofa that blocks the view of the kitchen wouldn’t allow for a free flow of conversation. Also be sure to keep windows and natural light unobstructed.
