There are many factors to take into consideration before choosing the perfect home plan. Choosing a house plan may seem overwhelming, but knowing your exact needs before beginning your search is the best way to start.
Where to begin?
Creating a checklist of your wants and needs would be the most helpful first step. Talk with your family and discuss what each of you wants in a home, and even search for house plans together. Sater Design has hundreds of plans available online, as well as in our extensive collection of home plan books.
Deciding what size of home will best suit your family’s lifestyle is the most important consideration in choosing a home plan. Planning to expand your family? Consider the number of bedrooms you will need now and in the future. If making space for out of town guests is a priority, then a home plan with extra bedrooms or a basement option, such as with Sater Design’s “Dune Ridge” plan, would be an attractive choice.
Your lifestyle is another important factor in choosing a home plan. In what rooms will you spend the most time? If you love to cook, search for a house plan with a large functional kitchen, such as in Sater Design’s open and lovely “Arabella” plan.
This particular plan also has an outdoor kitchen for the grill master in your family, and the layout is perfect for entertaining.
Another consideration before choosing a house plan is the layout. Do you prefer an open floor plan or more traditional compartmentalized rooms? Families with small children may prefer to have all of the bedrooms on one side of the house or all on one floor. Is a large laundry room or a mud room a necessity for your active family? These factors and more will determine your long term satisfaction with the home plan of your choosing.
