Front Yard Living. Elaborate outdoor rooms are showing up on the backside of the house. What about the front side? Binkley pushes front living areas in his latest commissions. His inspiration is Orlando’s very walkable Lake Eola neighborhood, where some homeowners have moved their living room, complete with sofas and reading lamps, onto the front porch. Plan 901-120. On homes without porches, Binkley may use pavers, bricks, and stones to inexpensively carve out social plots near the front door. They are a great place to watch pedestrians, drink an adult beverage, or read the newspaper.
Decide what size of home will best suit your family. Every family doesn’t need a sprawling estate and every family won’t feel comfortable in a small two bedroom home. Choosing a floor plan first should start with how large a home will fit your lifestyle. Assess how many bedrooms you will require for your children and how many bathrooms are enough for you and visiting guests. The size of your home should be the first consideration.
Open floor plans offer easier conversation but little privacy. Challenges of Open Floor Plans. As much as we rave about the space, light and flow that a large, open room gives us, there are certainly some challenges. Obviously, some privacy is lost when you tear down walls and join everything together. Talking on the phone in the kitchen while your kids are watching TV could be difficult.
Understand what the pros and cons are of your floor plan. There isn’t a perfect floor plan. There will always be pros and cons and you will need to decide what are your priorities and what can you learn to live with or without. A large living room window wall that lets in gorgeous natural light may also make your energy cooling and heating bills higher. A floor plan that is open and spacious could make it hard to concentrate in your adjacent home office as your kids are watching tv in the living room. Weigh the pros and cons when looking for the right floor plan.
