Planning and building your house is an expensive investment and will require careful consideration. You will need to be familiar with a number of factors such as the lighting, room layout and fixtures. Below are some of the things to consider when selecting your home floor plan.
Lighting is a big part of creating ambiance in a room. You should always consider if there is enough lighting when selecting a floor plan. By neglecting to plan out where the windows, light fixtures and curtains will be placed, you may be left with poorly illuminated rooms. Similarly, too much light can be harsh on the eyes and result in wasted electricity. Check the blue prints to see where the light fixtures will be placed in each room, as well as the location of the windows. Review your floor plan with your home builder to determine if every part of the house will have a sufficient amount of lighting.
Layout of the bedroom and living room
The best location for your bedroom and living room will depend on the size and individual needs of your family. For example, parents who are taking care of an infant will want the master bedroom close to the nursery. Will there be more than one kid or relative living with you? Since the living room is where most of the inhabitants will be gathering, you will need to have a wide open area to accommodate everyone.
Once you have the location of the bedroom and living room set, you will need to determine the traffic flow of the room. A hallway which separates the room is ideal for a house with a large number of occupants. If space is a problem, determine the location of the furniture to allow an optimal traffic flow so everyone will be able to move around with ease.
Kitchen and bathroom
The next thing to consider is the kitchen and bathroom of your house plan. Their size and location will depend on how many residents will live in the completed home or if the owner will be expecting guests. Consider the type of water fixtures to be included in both of these rooms and how they will be laid out. You’ll need to ensure everyone has easy access to bathrooms and that they are comfortable to use. It is best if you discuss the dimensions of the kitchen and bathroom with an expert in order to sketch out the best plan possible.
