What Floor Plan is Right for Me?

Author: James Adkins

Choosing a floor plan is no joke! One of the best parts of building your home choosing a floor plan that works for you and your family. A well-planned floor plan will benefit you for years to come. Here are some questions to ask before selecting your floor plan. 

Are You Missing Anything in Your Current Home?

When choosing your floor plan, decide if your current floor plan is missing anything. This is the perfect time to pinpoint the things you like about your current floor plan and the things you want to change. Maybe you want a bigger kitchen or entertaining area or maybe you want the master bedroom on a different floor. Identifying the changes you want will help you end up with a floor plan that meets your needs. 

What Will My Life Look Like in 5-10 Years?

When you are building your dream house, don’t consider your life right now. Think about how your family will change and grow in the years to come. This will come in handy, especially if you plan to stay in this home for years to come. 

Do Size or Amenities Matter More?

Everyone has a budget for the new build, so it’s important to decide whether size or amenities matter more to you. If size is more important to you, it would be in your best interest to choose a floor plan that’s bigger with fewer amenities. If you are more interested in amenities, it will probably be best to choose a smaller floor plan and get the amenities that you want. This will help you prioritize your wants when choosing your floor plan. 

What Does Your Lot Look Like?

The size, location, and shape of your lot are important in determining your floor plan. Take into account if there is the scenery you would like your windows to face, or what direction the sun will hit your house. These will end up making a bigger difference than you would think in the long run. Make sure to consult a professional on the shape, size, and location when choosing your floor plan. 

One of the best parts of a new build is to choose a floor plan that will meet your needs. If none of the floor plans meet your needs, you can also have a builder help you design a custom one. Don’t hesitate to reach out to the experts at Adkins Building and Construction to learn more!
