Make your decision based on the layout not the finishes. When choosing a floor plan ensure you are basing your decision on how the home flows and feels functional for your daily activities. Don’t get wowed by the upgraded floors, countertops and appliances in the model home, imagine the home in a “stripped down” state and form your opinion from there. A floor plan shouldn’t feel good because of the nice carpet that could go in the living room, it should feel right because the living room is a welcoming room off of the kitchen and foyer area for guests and family members.
People who entertain regularly may want a separate prep kitchen for the dirty work of cooking. These rooms, equipped with ovens, ranges, refrigeration, storage, and maybe even warming ovens, are great for caterers. They free the kitchen to be used as a party hangout. A second oven, even if it’s in the kitchen, comes in mighty handy on the days when you cook a roast or turkey for a large number of guests.
But now merchant builders are using shiplap siding in family rooms, stucco to frame showers in Mediterranean designs, and concrete block to form the interior walls of contemporary homes. Plan 888-3 uses board and batten siding on the walls of the second living room to reinforce an indoor-outdoor feeling. In so-called transitional designs – traditional designs executed with contemporary materials – corrugated metal siding, wire mesh railings, and concrete walls may show up inside the 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. The thought of entertaining the in-laws for a month each summer, or having all your co-workers over throughout the holidays may not cross your mind. Depending on your lifestyle if you love to entertain, consider your home fully occupied when planning 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!
