Before falling in love with a particular style or dreaming about the perfect furniture arrangement, your first step when approaching the home-building process should be to define your goals and priorities according to your current stage in life and the upcoming future. Why do you want to build a house? What are some of the things you would like to do in and with your new place? What are the main priorities in terms of space, features, and amenities? Determining these necessities takes a little foreshadowing in order to figure out what your family might need in the future.
Perhaps the most important factor to determine is the number of bedrooms needed in your new house. Why is this so important? Because a lot of space issues tend to relate to the number of bedrooms your family requires. Bedrooms (obviously) house people, and as your family grows and matures, you may require additional space related to the number of bedrooms. So, how many bedrooms do you need?
Once you’ve considered all the factors in determining how many bedrooms best suit you and your family’s needs, the next thing to determine is the bedroom layout. With over 20,000 house plans and counting, our house plans deliver a wealth of interior layouts from which to choose. From the popular split bedrooms to traditional layouts to the master on the main floor, we’ve got you covered with all types of layouts.
The split bedroom layout is a popular choice and is found throughout many of our house plans. This bedroom layout is typically found in one-story house plans and is a popular feature because it grants privacy between the master and secondary bedrooms by splitting them off on opposite ends of the home.
For those looking for a two-story home, having the master on the main floor while the secondary bedrooms on the second floor presents another option for privacy. The traditional layout, on the other hand, groups all the bedrooms together on one side of the home, making it easier for parents to keep an eye on younger children.
Another layout to consider is having additional bedrooms in the basement. This option is great for those in need of an in-law suite, guest bedroom(s), or additional bedrooms for those with bigger families. As you explore the many layouts we have to offer, you’ll discover unique and useful bedroom features such as plans with two owner suites, Jack and Jill bathrooms, and more!
