Why you should use a floor plan to select your new home

A home’s floor plan is always a great starting point when you are trying to decide what home is right for you.  Questions you might have about a home like will the home accommodate your needs, will the home fit your lifestyle, or have enough entertaining space, can all be answered by looking at the floor plans.  Here are several reasons why you should use a floor plan to select your new home.

 Will the home accommodate your families needs?

By looking at the floor plans you will be able to easily rule out homes that might not have enough bedrooms or bathrooms, homes that might be too small, or homes that don’t have a bonus room for the kids.

Will the home be able to adapt or grow with your family?

 Do you plan on expanding your family, and if so is there room in your new home for your family to grow?  Selecting a floor plan with a basement or one that has additional bedrooms might be beneficial.  In 10 years will you still be able or willing to walk up all those stairs to get to your master bedroom?  Perhaps a floor plan with the master on the main level or a ranch style home is what you are looking for.

Will the home fit with your lifestyle?

If you are someone who enjoys entertaining and having guests over, then there are certain qualities in a home that you might be looking for.  A large kitchen island, enough counter space, an open layout so you can always feel connected to your guests, just to name a few.  Also the location of the master suite is often times important to many homeowners.

Will the home be the correct size for your family?

It is important to figure out how much space you really need in your new home.  Of course you will know how many bedrooms and bathrooms you will need, but having the ability to see it on paper can help you understand how your home will live and feel. You also want to make sure the space that you have is actually space you will use.  There is nothing worse then having a random nook upstairs or niche that you have no idea what to do with.  Also our floor plans will give you room dimensions and sizes, this can be very helpful if you already have a piece of furniture and you want to make sure it will fit into that space.

Floor plans are always a great starting point.  

It is always nice to be able to visually see all the rooms in the home, and a floor plan is the perfect place to start your new home journey, but remember any of our floor plans can be customized.  So just because you see a home is drawn with only 3 bathrooms that doesn’t mean you can’t add another one, or because you master bedroom is upstairs and you want it downstairs, that can be changed as well.
