Which Floor Plan is Right for You?

Posted on Tuesday, May 23, 2023

Sierra Vista builders are experts at creating homes families love to live in. That means offering a variety of floor plans. Which one is right for you? That depends on your needs, but here are a few things to consider.

Your Budget

You know how much you can afford to spend on a home. How you spend that money depends on what’s important to you. If you need a study or media room but your budget is a little tight, consider a smaller home and put your home buying dollars into structural options. If you have a large family and space is important, choose a larger floor plan even if that means forgoing some upgrades.

How You Live Now

Look for a floor plan that makes your lifestyle better. Think about your favorite things. Also think about what you would like to change. Maybe you have young children and want a dedicated playroom. Maybe you’ve always wished for a workshop in the garage. Those things should be at the top of your must-have list.

Form Vs. Function

How do you envision life in your new home? You will want a floor plan that helps you live it. That could mean a large island kitchen or a covered patio. If you know you won’t need a formal dining room, choose a floor plan that doesn’t have one or see if your builder offers the option to change it into a study or entertainment room.

Privacy is a Consideration

How a home is laid out can impact how much privacy you have. Bedrooms and bathrooms should be positioned away from the living and entertaining areas to minimize noise. Additionally, consider the placement of windows and doors to ensure privacy from neighboring homes and streets.

Think About the Future

It’s easy to be caught up in the now — especially once you tour our gorgeous model homes — but you also need to think about the future. Do you plan to age in place? You probably won’t want a two-story home. As your children grow, will they need separate bathrooms or more space in their bedrooms? Keep these things in mind as you peruse floor plans.

Be Flexible

A flexible floor plan allows you to create the home you want. Pay attention to the structural options your builder offers. If you know you will want a media room, get it. Renovations can be costly. Also think about how you can change the function of the rooms. Will you be able to turn a spare bedroom into a workout space? If you host holiday events, you are going to want a floor plan with enough space for everyone. A plan that easily helps you live the way you want is better than one that doesn’t offer any flexibility.
