How do you decide what floor plan is right for your next home? You have many choices to meet your needs and wants. Your lifestyle, family size, location and more all are factors to consider. How your home is arranged or the layout of the rooms can impact the usefulness of the space.
Things to Consider When Deciding on a Floor Plan For Your Home
How many bedrooms do you want?
This is often one of the first things people think about. If they have a family that may help determine the number of room. Or do you have guests often and you want to make space for them? These are all considerations. We specify the number of bedrooms in each home offered by Excelsior Homes. View our home listings.
How many bathrooms do you want in your home?
The number of bathrooms is also often considered. Do you want a master bathroom, an entry bathroom, bathrooms on different levels of the home? Again, all things to consider.
Do you want a full, finished basement?
Modular homes can have a full basement or crawl spaces. Manufactured homes do not basements. A full-finished basement adds a large amount of additional living space, but it also adds cost to a project.
Would you like an open floor plan or more private spaces?
Would you like to have lots of open space between rooms in your home or do you prefer private spaces? An open floor plan has less walls between common areas such as the living room, dining room and kitchen. This is often considered by people looking at options for hosting gathering in their homes as it opens up line of sight and allows for a smooth flow for guests. Manufactured and modular homes offer different layouts as well. Learn more about the differences between modular and manufactured homes.
Where will your home be located?
Determining where you want to put your modular home is important. If you already own land, you are ready to move to the next step of determining if the location will be suitable for your new home. Will you be living on lake property, in town, in the country, on a farm or another option? This may determine what type of entrances you have and where they are located, all of which are important to the floor plan.
Do you have a particular home style in mind?
We can build either one level or multi-level modular homes. Ramblers, also known as ranch style homes, are one level homes while multi-level homes consist of two-story, cape-cod and loft styles. For those looking for cabins or lake homes we have many options available.
The beauty of building a modular home with Excelsior Homes is you have many options available from style to customization.
