When deciding on a floor plan for a new home, it is important to consider the needs of your family, both today and in the future. Contemplate the following tips to get the most out of your biggest investment.

1. What are your ideas about aesthetics and use of space?
Some families prefer compartmentalized layouts, featuring many private rooms with doors and walls. Others enjoy a modern, open layout where rooms flow together with little separation. Think about how your family likes to work and play when making this decision.

2. Would your family do better in a single-level or multi-story home?
Families who need to take mobility needs into consideration may prefer a sprawling, single-level home. On the other hand, large families with a need for space may select a multi-story arrangement in order to achieve a smaller physical footprint.

3. How important is privacy to your family? Where is that privacy most important?
Some families like to have all of their bedrooms tucked away together, far from the front door. Others prefer to have the master bedroom away from rooms where guests and children spend their time. Determine in which areas you value quiet and privacy most, and plan accordingly.
