How To Choose The Right Floorplan For Your Lifestyle

Whether you’re buying your first home or making the move to a home that accommodates your life’s changing needs, it’s key to focus on choosing a floorplan that makes your life as convenient as possible.

There’s so much excitement involved in buying a new home that it can be easy to fall in love with a home aesthetically; however, it may not be the best option for your family’s daily routine. Our expert homebuilding team at Coventry put together a few simple tips that will help make the home buying process a little easier – check them out and be on your way to finding a floorplan that’s a perfect fit!

1.      Decide On The Right Home Style For You

Are you looking for a starter home or a sprawling home with four bedrooms? It’s key to have the general home style decided on before you begin your new home search. From townhomes, to single-family homes with an attached garage – there’s a wide variety of styles to choose from. Selecting the home type you’re interested in and setting your budget will make your new home buying journey much easier.

2.     Sort Out Square Footage

If you’re planning on spending the next several years in your new home, then it’s critical to think about what your future floorplan needs might be. Are you hoping to grow your family? Don’t forget about additional bedrooms!  Thinking about where you and your family spend most of your time is also essential in choosing the perfect floorplan. If you’re spending a lot of time in the kitchen, then be sure to focus on having some extra space in that zone.

3.     What’s Your Design Style?

Are you into modern designs or prefer a traditional style? Think about your overall living habits – do you need quiet spaces or do you spend most of your time being social at home? Open concept layouts are found in more contemporary homes, while more private spaces are traits of a traditional design.

4.      Focus On Functionality

This is where you’ll spend the most time in your decision process – but it’s worth it! If you’re an active family that’s in and out often and needs storage space for equipment, then a spacious mudroom is a must. Here are a few other key questions to keep in mind:

  • Do you need a quiet office space or study?
  • Does your family entertain often? If so, your kitchen and main floor living space should be accommodating.
  • Is it important to have a bathroom with each bedroom?
  • How much garage space do you need?

5.     Ask For Help If You’re Unsure

Figuring out all the details of a floorplan can get overwhelming, so working with a professional can make a huge difference. Our incredible sales team can help you find the perfect home style to suit your needs, and they are ready to work on customizing your home for your specific lifestyle.

Following these tips will certainly help with getting the best home for you and your family, but don’t forget to follow your instincts. If a floorplan or specific feature feels right, then it probably is. Trust yourself and get the support you need from our amazing Coventry team!
