Most homes used to use the standard and traditional format of individual rooms connected by a primary hallway. Each room was closed off from each other and individually defined. Today, more people are looking for a more open and spacious home layout that provides a sense of airiness, openness, and brightness. Read on for some ways to add more space to your custom home layout!
Today’s custom homes come with some type of open-concept layout. No matter your preferred style, you will find an open floor plan to suit your needs. Robin Ford Builders has a wonderful selection of custom home plans that you can adjust to your heart’s delight. 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 throughout the house to use for whatever you want. A bonus room is a true blank slate that gives homeowners the flexibility to turn it into whatever they want. Some may turn theirs into a gym, work-from-home office, or even an at-home schoolroom.
Much like a bonus room, a flex room is a space that serves 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. Often, people combine the home office with a guest bedroom. Combining multiple purposes into one primary space gives your home a much greater sense of space and purpose.
Higher ceilings are a design element that creates more spacious custom home areas. 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 for a better sense of airiness.
Your custom home architect can place windows so you will get the most sunlight indoors and the best views outdoors. Larger windows in specific areas like your living rooms and bedrooms will create a better sense of openness to your outdoors and, therefore, a much bigger space.
