Families come in all shapes and sizes, and so do homes! Buying or building a new home is an exciting time for families, but the process can also be daunting. Creating a picture-perfect home for your family starts with selecting the right floor plan. With these simple pro tips, you’ll design the home of your dreams complete with the style and practicality you crave.  

Assess Your Lifestyle

The first step to designing a floorplant that works for your family is to analyze which features in your home are most important. This will help with a more targeted budget, and it’ll be easier to set goals for the layout of your home.

If you’re planning on expanding your family, include extra bedrooms in your floorplan for ample space for children. You may want to consider having a nursery closer to the master bedroom for easy and convenient access.

Another must-have for parents is a laundry room near the master bedroom or possibly on the second floor, if you have one.

Consider Your Surroundings & Child Safety

When designing your dream floorplan, you must consider your surroundings and your child’s safety. Open floorplans create a comfortable space for children who are growing up, and because it’s an open space, you’ll be able to see them from nearly every room.

Consider the footprint of your new home to ensure ample backyard space. If your property isn’t big enough for a single-story floorplan with all your needs on one floor, then building a second floor may be your answer.

Tour Other Homes & New Construction

When it comes to your dream floorplan, there is no better way to feel the space than to walk into a model home that closely mimics the home you hope to build.

A well-designed floorplan can help you determine your property’s future value and which rooms, and features will bring you the most return on investment (ROI). You may also want to talk to an experienced designer or contractor to help make the tough decisions.
