Whenever we begin working on a new home build, we like to help our clients to come up with floorplan options that will suit their needs and lifestyle.
3 Floorplan Ideas to Consider for Your Custom Home
Although there are always exceptions, most home designs consist of the same components when using a set amount of square footage: At least three bedrooms with one master bedroom, an ensuite bathroom, powder room, kitchen, living room, garage, and maybe a third bathroom. The customization becomes a factor when looking at how these rooms are arranged within the floorplan, the design elements of the home, and any additional rooms that might come into the picture, such as a theatre room or office spaces. Some custom floorplan ideas that you can consider when designing your home include:
1. Open it Up
Open-concept homes are popular for a reason. They create an excellent flow so that there is no division between the kitchen and sitting or visiting areas, making them ideal for entertaining and family time. Open-concept floorplans can also make a home appear as though it is bigger than it truly is. You can tie living, dining, cooking, and work together in one shareable space.
2. Bring in the Great Outdoors
When deciding on a layout for your home, consider different ways to bring the outdoors into your home. Think about the flow of the space from the front door to the back and make sure there is plenty of access to connect with the outside of the home through doors and windows.
3. Make the Most of Light
Think about the position of your home when building it. Make sure that the areas of the home in which you will spend different parts of your day are positioned to get healthy amounts of sunlight, and plan your window placement accordingly. If you tend to spend the morning in the bedroom and the evening in the kitchen or living room, make sure that the bedroom is on the east side of the home and the living area is on the west side to ensure that the sunlight hits the right areas.
