Think about the time you presently spend in certain rooms in your home, and why. Some families like to make the kitchen the focal point for daily family gatherings and would require a large sunny eat-in kitchen with lots of space; others prefer a den or family room with lots of room for large sofas and a fireplace.
Recognising your reasons for moving forward with a new build and identifying your future plans helps you develop a design brief that your designer, architect or builder can turn into viable house plans. If you are unclear of your requirements or you try to accommodate conflicting needs, then you may be disappointed with the outcome.
Choosing a house plan to meet your lifestyle and needs may seem time consuming or overwhelming, but knowing what to look for can help lead you to success when selecting a house plan for your new home.
A very important aspect, the amount of light that enters the house depends on its orientation, design, and window placement. Consider the views as well. If you are fortunate enough to have beautiful views into the distance, then take advantage of this and plan for windows or French doors in a spot that allows you to appreciate this and provide added value.
