When building a new home, there are several things you will want to consider carefully. The most obvious is where you are going to build your house. The climate will affect where you build. You wouldn't build an icehouse in the middle of the desert. You will want to determine what material you will want to use. Brick, wood, and cement are popular.
The layout of your home is probably one of the most significant choices you will ever make regarding your home. Regardless if you live in an apartment, a condominium or a house, the layout of the rooms and how they flow will largely depend on your lifestyle. Whether you prefer single story or multiple stories, and all the bedrooms on the top floor – choosing a perfect plan can be stressful. Here are 5 tips to help you decide on a plan right for your family.
Choose a floor plan that suits your lifestyle. In a previous post we discussed the pros and cons of having an open floor plan. There are factors you should consider regardless of openness. Factors such as: layout of rooms with consideration of family size and ages of children is essential. Most families who have young children like to have the private spaces of the house – bedrooms and bathrooms grouped in one area of the home.
Bonus Rooms (Laundry, Play) - One of the most popular trends in today's house plans are dedicated laundry rooms and the renewed popularity of pantries. In fact, in my new house we made the mudroom a combination laundry and pantry. Some house plans offer laundry on the second floor of multi-leveal houses. A word of caution if you choose a second floor laundry. Make sure you insist that some type of extensive drain system be installed in the unfortunate case there is a broken washing machine hose.
