How to come up with the best floor plan for your dream house

As a homeowner, it’s imperative to come up with the best floor plan to build your dream house. You must consider these five key points and discuss them in detail with the architect while drawing the floor plan layout.

1- Know your lifestyle

You must write down the physical strengths and weaknesses of your family members. Do you have an old or disabled relative who can’t walk the stairs? Or are you not taking into consideration how your lousy back may not like going up three flights of stairs throughout the day? If so, you might think of space for an elevator.

You also need to determine the size of your kitchen so that you and your family may comfortably cook or place a dinner table there. Evaluate your lifestyle before deciding on a layout or another. Do you have a large family? That’ll help you determine if you want a single or multistory home.

Do you prefer an open floor plan, or are individual rooms with partitions a better option? Ask yourself as many questions as you can and determine what you need to live in a comfortable home.

2 – Prioritize safety

Have you ever fallen in love with a sports car just to be brought back to the fact that you have a full family that won’t fit in the vehicle? The same mistake can be made when examining the ideal home for your family. Safety must always come first and many floor plan components such as stairs and balconies that don’t have railings or expansive glass shower enclosures, and other features may look great for adults but don’t suit families with small children.

3 – Look for similar floor plans on the Internet

It’s easy to search and find floor plans of houses meeting your requirements online. Try to note the aesthetics, the sizes of rooms like the kitchen, bathrooms, garage, and pay attention to the furniture and their placement. Beware reading the dimensions of space on a floor plan and then realize your existing furniture doesn’t go as you imagined into its dedicated area?

4 – Carefully examine the location

While you can improve your floor plan layout in the future, remember you can’t change your location. With this in mind, don’t choose a floor plan without taking into consideration the surroundings of your home. For example: If you happen to like a bedroom’s layout you found on the internet, that doesn’t fit your house– chances are your bedroom will have a completely different aesthetic and view, and therefore be different than the one you liked, even with the same floor plan. Remember, when choosing a floor plan, ensuring the interiors will fit with your situation.

5 – Ask your friends and family for suggestions

All the family members must offer their recommendations regarding your house floor plan. You will get great tips like incorporating a home office or a separate lounge area on the rooftop for parties and family gatherings. These suggestions will play an essential part in enhancing the functionality of the floor plan and making every family member feel comfortable in your home.
