At Sekas Homes we say “we’ve never built the same home twice” because we’re always customizing our existing award-winning home designs to meet the needs of our clients. We understand that there is a wide range of emotions associated with building a home. From excitement to trepidation, it can be a rollercoaster. After you’ve found a trustworthy and skilled homebuilder like Sekas Homes, one of the most effective means of laying any negative feelings to rest, is choosing the perfect floor plan—one that will maximize the comfort and functionality of your home, while blending seamlessly in to the landscape. With so many available options, this process can quickly become overwhelming, but don’t despair: here are 5 great tips to help you narrow down your choices, and turn your dreams into reality.
Make a wish.
No floor plan is perfect, and compromises will need to be made, but making a wish list is a great way to ensure that most, or all of your must have items are included in your new build. Look around your current home for inspiration, and carefully consider what works, and what doesn’t.
Contemplate your lifestyle.
Do you love to entertain? Need space for a home office, gym, or possibly a multi-generational set up? Do you frequently host out of town guests? Think about how you live – both today and in the future – and determine which elements your home needs in order to suit your lifestyle, today and down the road.
Consider choosing a floor plan that will change, alongside your family. Whether you’re planning on expanding your family, have older children that will soon be leaving the nest, or are retiring in the near future, the perfect floor plan will reflect any future needs for more bedrooms, space for teens to hangout, or a main floor owner’s retreat with secondary bedrooms on the upper level, to reduce time spent going up and down stairs.
Look at the big picture.
Not every floor plan will fit, or be suitable, for every piece of land or neighborhood. Do you require sufficient outdoor space for children’s activities, or entertaining? Determine whether window placement will afford you enough light, maximize available views, or provide privacy from your neighbors.
Be true to yourself.
It’s essential that your perfect floor plan reflects your design style, whether you prefer a modern, open layout, or a more transitional design. Sekas Homes can customize any of our existing designs or we can work with you to design/build a fully custom home from the ground up!
