When you select your home design, it is important to consider what type of lifestyle you have. Families with teenagers typically have different needs than a family with young children or empty nesters. Make sure to consider whether your children will share their bedroom or need their own space, or whether you will need additional bedrooms for a growing family. Would a plan with the master bedroom near the other bedrooms or a split plan with the master separated for privacy suit you better? In addition to the bedrooms, it’s important to think about how many bathrooms you will need. Do you have multiple children getting ready for school all at the same time that may need their individual spaces? Would a private bathroom in a guest room be beneficial for frequent overnight guests or out-of-town family?
Do you like to cook? You may prefer to choose a home plan with an open kitchen that includes an island with additional work space. If you like to entertain often, think about how you will accommodate your guests. Would you like a formal dining room for holiday meals or dinner parties? Or would you prefer an open floor plan where you can be involved with all of your guests while preparing the meal?
Another important consideration to think about is whether you want a ranch or two-story home. A one-story home is generally easier to manage and more energy efficient. However, a two-story home can give you more flexibility with space and more privacy. For example, a guest bedroom can be located on the main floor for someone who has trouble climbing stairs, and a bedroom on the second story can be used as a home office or media room.
Make sure to consider how much outdoor space you need when you are searching for the perfect home design. Typically, floor plans will include some type of outdoor living space, such as a deck or sunroom. It’s also equally important to consider how much yard space you need. Do you have young children or pets that would prefer plenty of space to run? Or would you prefer to have a low-maintenance yard with less upkeep?
Choosing the right floor plan for your family can be challenging, but it can be a lot of fun too. As long as you follow these helpful hints while keeping in mind the lifestyle you want to live, you can make your dream home a reality.
