Many homes used to have the standard and traditional format with individual rooms connected by a primary hallway. Every room was closed off from each other and individually defined. Today, most people are looking for an open and spacious home layout that gives everyone a sense of airiness, openness, and brightness. Read on for a couple of ways you can build a spacious and open custom home layout!
Today’s custom homes all come with some type of open-concept layout. Whether it is traditional, ranch, coastal, craftsman, or farmhouse, you will find an open floor plan in every one of them. Robin Ford Builders has a wonderful selection of custom home plans that you could adjust to your heart’s delight. All in all, the open layout could make living, dining, and cooking areas all blend together seamlessly.
Bonus Custom Home Rooms
Instead of creating designated rooms for a specific purpose, like a dining room or office, you can include bonus rooms downstairs and upstairs, which someone could use for whatever they want. A bonus room is a true blank slate that will give homeowners the flexibility to turn it into whatever they want. Some may turn theirs into their own gym, a work-from-home office, or even an at-home schoolroom.
Much like a bonus room, a flex room is a space that will serve more than one primary purpose. For example, one might combine a hobby room with a laundry room or your den with your playroom for the kids. Very commonly, people should combine the home office with a guest bedroom. Combining purposes into one primary space gives your home a much greater sense of space and purpose.
Design elements that create more spacious custom home areas include higher ceilings. Each Robin Ford Builders home comes with high ceilings customized to your liking on every floor, but you can elevate the ceiling in one or more rooms, too, for a better sense of airiness.
Your custom home architect can place or windows so you’ll get the most sunlight indoors and the best views outdoors. Larger windows in certain areas like your living rooms and bedrooms will create a better sense of openness to your outdoors, and therefore a much bigger space.
