How to Avoid Custom Home Floor Plan Mistakes

How to Avoid Custom Home Floor Plan Mistakes
Having total control over the floor plan of your new custom home presents the chance to design a space that is perfect for you and your family. However, the freedom that comes with designing a custom home also introduces the possibility of making a mistake, leaving you with a floor plan that just doesn’t work for your family after all.

Maintaining excellent communication with your custom home builder is essential to building the perfect home for you and your family, which is why we at Eastland Construction are here to walk you through the entire process from start to finish.

Make sure your floor plan is the perfect design and space for your family by avoiding these common floor plan mistakes:

Not Asking Questions About Floor Plan Drawings

Floor plan renderings can be very difficult to understand. If you have any questions about the words or symbols used on the floor plan drawing of your home, do not hesitate to ask!

Custom home builders are more than willing to answer any questions regarding floor plan renderings. Make sure to clear the air about every detail of the floor plan drawing to eliminate surprises in the future.

Not Thinking In the Long-Term

Building a custom home is a huge undertaking. When it’s all said and done, the goal is to provide your family with the best living situation that will fit your needs for a long time.

Short-term thinking can create multiple problems down the road when creating your custom home’s floor plan. Your floor plan needs to be large enough so that every family member is comfortable. It should also be in accordance with any future plans, such as having another child.

Think about how your lifestyle and needs will change over the next 20 years. Is the floor plan you’ve designed going to be able to handle these changes and new faces down the road?

Building Too Big / Too Small

While it may seem obvious, over-building or under-building are traps that many people fall into when decided on a floor plan. Don’t get carried away adding rooms that you will never use. Spend a lot of time thinking about what you truly need out of your next home; would a dining room go months and months without hosting a meal?

While building too big can prove to be a costly mistake, keep in mind that building too small also presents issues of its own. Having enough space is crucial to being comfortable, as long as it is done in moderation.
