What Floorplan is Right For Me?

When you begin to think about building your own custom home, one of the first things you start to think of will undoubtedly be your floor plan! In today’s blog, we’re going to discuss some of the best tips on picking the floor plan that fits all of your needs in a brand-new custom home!

Create a List of Needs

One of the first things that you can do to start narrowing down the list of floor plans you could build, is creating a list of things that are a must-have in your new home. Whether you want to write these down on a piece of paper, get them in a spreadsheet, or even type them up in a Word document, just getting your needs down will help you in the long run and eliminate the largest number of floor plans right off the bat.

Examine Your Day-to-Day Life and What You Love About Other Homes

Once you have your needs in a home down, take a step back for a couple of days, or even a week, and examine your day-to-day life, and determine what aspects of your home you need, and what would simplify your life that you could add in your new home. Similarly, imagine some features of other homes that you have always envied, and wanted to add to your home. This will help you eliminate floor plans that don’t make your day-to-day easier or don’t have the features you’ve always wanted in a home.

Measure Your Furniture

When building a new home, it always pays to pay attention to the details, including measuring out the furniture that you plan on bringing to your new home! Measuring out your furniture so that you know exactly what you can fit and where in a floor plan is an extremely valuable timesaver, as you can look at the dimensions of certain floor plans and determine whether you’re able to fit your beloved sectional in the living room of a certain floor plan.

Figure Out Your Land/Lot Requirements

When thinking about potential floor plans that interest you, it’s also important to consider what type of lot you are wanting to build on. If you’ve always envisioned yourself grilling out on your patio while still being able to duck inside quickly to check the score of the big game, a walkout lot could be just the plan for you, and could eliminate some more floor plan options.

Finally, It's Time to Let Your Creativity Run Wild!

Once you’ve followed the steps above, it’s time to let your dreams for your new home run wild, and explore all of the potential floor plans available from the builders in your area! When you have a specific idea in mind of what you need in a home, you can start exploring floor plans to your heart’s desire, and imagine all sorts of different lives in each individual floor plan.
