Building a new home is always an exciting time, but you want to be sure that you choose the floor plan that best suits your needs.
A floor plan should not only be functional, but also give your home that unique feeling that makes it your own. These four modern floor plans provide the function you need with the look you want to make your home spectacular.
The ski chalet
If you are looking for a floor plan that makes you think of that ski chalet in Switzerland with the quaint little tavern, choose a floor plan with certain design criteria.
It should have a large kitchen and family room as the central feature of the home and a giant, two-sided fireplace that opens between the living and family room. The master suite should have sitting area and private deck for relaxing on snowy evenings looking out over the mountains.
The estate cottage
For anyone who has dreamed of living in one of those beautiful estate cottages found on the grounds of their favorite castle, a plan with a beautiful garden courtyard off the living or dining room, a luxurious study with a spectacular 14-foot ceiling and a fully-equipped chef’s kitchen are requirements.
Add an open family room with a stunning fireplace and your quaint estate cottage will be the envy of all your friends and family. Bring your floor plan to a company like Alair Homes, with custom homes and major renovations in Collingwood, and work together to make your plans become reality.
Rustic log hideaway
Dreaming of a log house in the woods where you can get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life? Include a finished, walk-out basement with the home built into a hill in the woods.
Of course, it must have a fireplace and an open loft that overlooks the floor below, preferably into the room with the roaring fireplace.
Are you looking for the plans for your retirement home? Is it time to downsize to something smaller because the children are all grown? Consider a one-story ranch with two bedrooms and two baths. A floor plan that includes a study or den that can easily be converted to a bedroom if necessary is a bonus for when the children and grandchildren come to visit.
A corner fireplace and wall of windows that give you a view of a beautiful covered porch will add even more beauty to your retirement home. Be sure that the kitchen opens into the large dining area so the cook can still enjoy the fun during dinner parties and family meals.
These tips for house plans can help you design the perfect floor plan for the type of home you need. Your builder can help you customize the plans so that they are perfect for your needs.
