Here are a few suggestions to help you choose the perfect floorplan to match your family’s lifestyle. Share your favorite floorplans with us on Facebook.
1. Consider your family size. Do you have kids? Do you have elderly parents that might move in with you one day? Are you an empty nester upgrading or downsizing your space for family? Will you need extra space for family during the holiday seasons? Search for a floorplan that will accommodate your family size, now and in the futures, so everyone can enjoy your new home comfortably.
2. Think about your outdoor space. Do you need a large yard for your kids to enjoy? Do you need a space for your dog? If you enjoy entertaining outside, consider a floorplan with a patio or lounge area. Curb appeal is just as important as the indoor design of your new home in Dallas, TX.
3. Don’t forget work and hobbies. If you work from home, consider a floorplan with a study or office space. If you work mostly in your garage during the weekend, find a floorplan to house all of your tools for weekend projects. Do you need a mudroom for easy clean up from gardening? Always consider your main hobbies and weekend lifestyle when looking for a floorplan to suite your needs.
4. Don’t overlook your furniture. Measure your current furniture to make sure your new home in Dallas, TX will accommodate your current furniture and décor. Knowing the dimensions of your current décor will help you find a floorplan that will suite not only your family, but your current sense of style. If your furniture is too small or too large, you might have to redecorate once you move into your new home.
