If your dream home is crystal clear in your mind, you know you want it to look perfect. Without a proper floor plan, your appearance could crumble. Floor plans are the foundation of a good design and work as the most efficient way to see your home before it’s built. At Robin Ford, we collaborate with you to create an ideal floor plan. But what should you consider in a desirable floor plan in your custom home? Keep reading to find out.
Ensure the Home Type You Want
If you are someone who enjoys entertaining, you may want your entrance near a family room. Opening up your entrance area would make your visitors feel welcome. Or if you live for peace and quiet, you’ll want your bedroom or other relaxing areas far away from other rooms where the most noise will happen. So, make sure to specify what home type you want before building your desirable floor plan in your custom home.
Robin Ford will never construct an unsafe home, but some homeowners have more specific needs than others. If you must reach someone quickly and regularly, consider keeping their living area on the first floor. Also, consider who will be on your property and determine whether or not a staircase or second floor is ideal. It’s also best to place children’s bedrooms close to the master room. Even though you want easy access, you want to keep their growth from crowding up by being too nearby.
Room for Flexibility
When those children leave for college, you want to ensure you can utilize that bedroom for something. Whether converting it into a guest room or creating an office, your spaces must be flexible. In addition, try not to construct rooms that are only used for one purpose. For instance, a den that is too small to turn into anything else. Think about this: if it’s too small to feel comfortable sleeping in, you should go bigger.
