What Is the Right Floor Plan For Me?

Choosing the right floor plan for your home can be tricky. At Zieba Builders, we understand that you’ve got a lot of options to choose from. And while having options is great, it can often make the decision-making process much more challenging.

So, if you’ve ever asked yourself “What is the right floor plan for me?”, you’ve come to the right place. We will discuss some things to consider before committing to the floor plan.


Considerations for Choosing a Floor Plan

Finding the floor plan that works for your family’s lifestyle will make the difference between good and great. Not sure where to start? Here are a few key considerations to think about as you begin planning.


What Are You Missing?

Narrow your search by disqualifying plans that would repeat past mistakes by deciding what you’re missing in your current home. You have a great starting point for square footage requirements as you look through plans if you know your existing home is too small.


Functional Space

Just as important as some of the more exciting rooms of your home’s floor plan are the functional spaces that are sometimes forgotten. Make sure the project gives these critical rooms enough space and prime locations since they are the rooms that you access day in and day out, including:

  • Bathrooms
  • Laundry rooms
  • Pantries
  • Storage space
  • Mudrooms


Lot Restrictions

The type of plan you choose will also depend on your lot’s size and orientation. Requirements on how large the house can be may set you back. One way to ensure you won’t regret your choice is by choosing a plan that shows off your lot and its view.


Custom Floor Plan Options

You might need a custom approach to make extensive changes that require moving walls and changing electrical and plumbing schematics. It might be worth the cost to design a plan from scratch and know that you are going to get exactly what you wanted if you simply can’t seem to find what you’re looking for in catalogs or on your builder’s website.
