How to Find the Right Floorplan for You

Last updated 5 years ago

If you are in the market for a new home, you know that there are countless floorplans to choose from, but not every one meets your specific lifestyle needs. Whether you are looking for a new townhome, loft, or single family home, be sure to consider your daily needs, entertainment goals, and family size when you select your dream home’s perfect floorplan. Here is how to find the best layout for you:

Daily Needs

Did you know that most buyers evaluate the kitchen area before investing in any new property? The first step in selecting a floorplan is to consider your daily needs. If your busy lifestyle means you usually eat on the go, consider a kitchen with an island where you can add barstools for flexible seating. Spend some time evaluating the number of bedrooms and their locations. If your needs will change over time or you plan to expand your family, opt for a floor plan with extra space and his and her bathrooms and walk-in closets.

Entertainment Goals

If you regularly host large gatherings, opt for an open layout so guests can easily mingle and move in and out of the kitchen, living room, and dining area. If you prefer intimate dinner parties, pick a floorplan with a butler’s pantry and formal dining room, and make sure to consider where large pieces of furniture will go. If you prefer to relax at home, be sure to plan your living room around your entertainment center, and look for cozy extras like libraries and fireplaces.

Family Size

Do you have children or pets? A large or busy family should consider options like spacious yards, courtyards, and mudrooms that can accommodate benches and lockers for kids’ belongings. If you have young children, look for a sunroom or den that you can turn into a playroom.
