Custom Home Design | December 5, 2019

Knowing some simple tips on how to choose the right floorplan for your custom home will help you ensure that you are getting the best floorplan for your particular wants and needs. At Jaheny Custom Builders, we know how important it is to choose a floorplan that you will love for years to come. That is why our team will work closely with you to make sure you are 100% happy with your new custom home floorplan.

Things to Consider When Choosing a Floorplan

Before selecting a floorplan for your new custom home, you should take into consideration the following:

1. Your Lifestyle

One of the biggest things that you should take into consideration when selecting a floorplan for a custom home is your lifestyle and the layout of rooms with consideration of your family’s size and the ages of your children. It is also a good idea to assess the floorplan of your current home to determine what the pros and cons are and whether or not you would like to try a different floorplan for your new home.

2. How Often You Entertain

If you entertain guests on a regular basis, consider selecting a floorplan that is centered on entertaining and welcoming guests the second they walk through the front door. This type of floorplan can include open living and dining spaces and a large foyer.

If you and your family are more private and rarely have guests over, consider opting for a more formal living space near the front of the house. This space will allow guests to have a comfortable place to sit, while keeping the rest of your home private.

3. Areas that Need Special Accessibility

Make sure to think about the future when selecting a floorplan for your new custom home. Consider whether or not you may have a live-in family member who needs extra space to maneuver or if you plan on having children who will need wider hallways to run around in.

4. Size of Outdoor Living Areas

Since the floorplan of your custom home will most likely include an outdoor leisure area, such as a porch, swimming pool, or other amenities, make sure to take into consideration how much time your family will spend outdoors.
