Choosing The Best Home Plan
The various other factors that you need to check upon, while on a house plan hunt. The most important ones have been listed below.
Lifestyle & Needs
The lifestyle of each family differs from the others and so does its needs. A house plan for a nuclear family will nowhere fit for the house plan of a joint family. As the number of people increases, the needs also go up. So, before heading for any plan, consider your lifestyle, along with those of the people who live with you. Different people prioritize different areas in a house. Newlyweds will want the living room or bedroom as per their taste, while a middle-aged couple will go for the kitchen or the dining area, where family time is spent. Give importance to each room and make a plan accordingly. For example, take the case of a living room. Some people will want it to be a large place, where they can get together with their family members, while others might like to it be small and compact. Define the area as per the choice of the inmates of the house.
Everyone will have an area in the home, which they will call as their hub. Herein, they would like to spend some quality time. While for some, master bedroom is their nest, others take living rooms to be their private space. You will have to design the rooms accordingly. If you want a private life, far away from your neighbors, go for a U- or L-shaped house plan, which can actually hide you from the neighbors. It can be a great option for leading a private life. The placement of windows is also to be noted. Make it a point that they provide adequate privacy from your neighbor’s windows and yards. You should also have some private outdoor place as well. Landscaping and location will have to be looked upon, when you are looking for a private life.
Furniture & Aesthetics
You always wanted to get the beautiful beanbag that you saw at the mall. However, you didn’t have enough area to place it, at your rented home. Now that you are making a plan of your own house, consider the furniture as well. At the same time, make it a point that your interior decoration blend wells with your house plan. If a beautiful urn that was brought from Greece isn’t conspicuous amidst an array of other furnishings, it would be a waste. The furnishings shouldn’t affect the natural traffic i.e. the flow of the room. There should be enough space around the furniture. Lighting is yet another factor that needs to be thought about.
Consider the exteriors as well. If you are a complete outdoor person, make sure that there is enough space for a garden, small pool or mini basketball court. At the same time, keep in mind other activities that you undertake. You might need a room to entertain guests, store your beloved possessions or wash your laundry room in. So, make sure to allocate rooms accordingly.
