Note that the terms house plans and floor plans tend to be used interchangeably, both in and out of the building industry. They do have different meanings however, with the latter being a scale drawing of one floor of a building, whilst a new house plan is a full set of construction plans for a building. The latter includes floor plans, elevations, sections, details, and specifications for construction.
Will the floor plan of your new home plan accommodate your existing or new furniture arrangements and furniture styles? When planning room sizes, carefully consider the seating areas and how furniture placement will affect the overall feel of the room. Do you want two separate seating areas or one larger conversation area? How will the room flow into other rooms?
Measure your current furniture to determine if there will be adequate walking space of at least 36 inches around furniture and clearance for doors to swing. Will the height of your furniture block windows? Does it provide enough wall space, nooks and areas for art and personal effects? Review the natural â€œtraffic flowâ€ of the house plan, the interior views from each room of the home as well as how natural lighting can be shared and utilized within the home.
Building a new home or renovating your current one is one of the biggest financial decisions you will ever make. With so much money on the line, you should take the necessary steps to come up with the perfect house plans. Indeed, it should fit into your current lifestyle, but don’t forget about the future. Designing for your future needs does require a little more effort, but with some forethought, you can ensure that the design not only reflect your existing requirements but also accommodate potential future changes, such as starting a family in a few years’ time.
