Rolwes Company, your trusted St Louis Home builder, knows building a new construction home can be both an exciting and overwhelming experience. Whether you’re building a home for a growing family or looking to downsize, floor plan plays a huge role in the decision-making process.
It is important to consider a variety of aspects before taking the big leap to choose your new floor plan. Before you get too overwhelmed, take a step back and consider the following to ensure the perfect fit for your lifestyle and your new home construction in St Louis.
1. Consider the size of your family and the amount of space that they require
Every family is different and requires a different amount of space. The first aspect you should consider when choosing a floor plan for your new construction home should be size.
Consider how many bedrooms and bathrooms you will need. Will you have visitors often? Do you work from home and need a space for an office? How many years do you plan to live in your new home?
Will you be adding to your family? Do you have adult children moving away from home soon? Take note of the following and be sure to include size in your decision-making process.
2. Select a floor plan that matches your personal style
Meeting your personal needs is crucial in the design process. That is why choosing a floor plan that matches your personal design style is so important. Do you prefer an open floor plan or a floor plan that is more compartmentalized?
Your personal style can also be important in the decision-making process when considering how the home will be decorated. Will new and existing furniture work in this space? Be sure to select a floor plan that will allow you to decorate your new home to your liking.
3. Make your decisions based on the floor plan itself rather than finishes that are offered
It is easy to get distracted by the finishes a home may boast. It is important to look past these finishes and consider the functionality of the home, first. Although finishes can help us personalize a home, they are not what make our house a home. Think of what different spaces have to offer before considering what finishes you can add to a space.
4. Recognize what feels right to you and trust your instincts
Ultimately you will be the one living in the home and are the only one who truly knows your lifestyle needs for you and your family. If a floor plan doesn’t seem quite right for your family, keep looking! Trust your instincts in the decision-making process and know that the perfect floor plan is out there!
5. Understand that some floor plans can be modified
Maybe you have already found the perfect floor plan for your lifestyle but are caught up on a few small details. Rolwes Company, your trusted St Louis Home Builder offers a variety of floor plans; many of which can be modified to fit your lifestyle.
