Richwoods Amberly Floor PlanA superior floor plan can stunningly showcase a home, create a more livable space and even increase the value of a property.  So how do you choose the “right” floor plan for your family?  Here are some tips to consider as you build or purchase your new home in Richwoods. 

Consider your stage of life.  The best way to know if a floor plan is suited for your family is to visualize all of you living in the space.  A family with young children may value a larger garage with extra storage space, a laundry room easily accessible to bedrooms and a homework station in the kitchen..   Are you working from home?  You’ll need a private home office and may consider converting a formal dining room or extra bedroom to get the space you want.

Factor in guests.  Another important consideration is how you like to entertain as this will influence your floor plan decision.  Do you enjoy hosting big family get-togethers and envision guests mingling in an open kitchen-family room concept?  Or do you prefer intimate gatherings and the mess of a working kitchen to be out of sight?  Consider account overnight guests too, and determine if an extra bedroom is essential or if a cozy nook and an air mattress could suffice as guest quarters.

Define your dream kitchen.  Be sure to research all the floor plans available in the new homes of Richwoods to find the best kitchen layout that suits your cooking and entertaining style.  A breakfast nook, walk-in pantry, kitchen island and overall counter space are all things to consider.

Don’t forget about your furniture.  One of the biggest mistakes buyers make when purchasing a new home is not taking into consideration their current furnishings.  The dimensions of your key pieces will have a critical impact on room size and configuration so be sure to think through how they would fit throughout the home.
