Legion Builders will work with you to create a floorplan that suits your lifestyle. Before working on the design, it’s important to assess your needs and start thinking about how you want your home to look. Deciding how many bedrooms and bathrooms you would like is the easy part! Now it’s time to consider the details.
1. Ceiling Height
If you’ve always wanted high ceilings, now is your time to speak up. Make sure your tall guests don’t have to duck under doorways or archways when visiting you, but know that your energy bills will be higher with higher ceilings.
2. Ample Storage
Storage space can make any home feel more comfortable. Where do you typically require storage? Think about your living situation now, and make a list of the rooms you would like to have cabinets, cupboards or closets.
3. Switches & Electrical Outlets
If you’ve ever been in a room with too few outlets, you know how much of a pain it is. Or if an outlet isn’t situated in a convenient spot, it can make things even worse. Assess your living room in terms of lights and your entertainment system and determine how many outlets you want in your living room, bedrooms, kitchen, and bathrooms. Don’t forget about your exterior outlets!
4. Convenient Laundry Setup
Many home buyers can forget to plan their laundry room. Which floor would you like your machines on? Would it make your life easier to have your machines off the kitchen or in the basement? A larger laundry room can make the chore more enjoyable.
