Designing the Perfect Custom Home Floor Plan

Phil Myers - Monday, December 12, 2016

Have you flipped through floor plan books? Scoured the internet for the perfect plans? It can be challenging to find the perfect custom home floor plan. One plan will have the master suite you’ve always dreamed of, but not have an impressive kitchen. Another plan will have a fantastic kitchen that you could whip up some delicious meals in, but have a horrible layout for the dining room and living room arrangement.

  1. Finding the perfect custom home floor plan is almost impossible. One plan will have a great feature you love, but you’ll hate the rest of the house. There are tons of plans out there, but sifting through all of them can take a long time. Settling on a floor plan won’t result in your dream home. It’ll result in a home you like, but not love and you may never truly feel at home.


  1. Design Your Perfect Custom Home Floor Plan: finding the perfect floor plan will be impossible, but you can certainly design your own floor plan and you should.
    2. Pick and Choose Floor Plan Elements: Since you’re building a custom home, your floor plan should be custom as well. You’ve already looked at countless floor plans, so grab the ones with your favorite designs. Pick the kitchen you absolutely love, choose the dining room that fits your needs, and put them together in a floor plan.
    4. Work With The Flow of the Home: Just as important as the elements in the floor plan is the overall flow of the home. You can’t just cut and paste these rooms together to get the floor plans you want. You’ll need to actually design the home in a way that works for your lifestyle. If you cut and paste you could end up with the master bedroom off the dining room and the rest of the master suite in the attic. Instead, think about the placement of these rooms and how you use them.
    6. Decide On The Size: Because you’re designing your own floor plan, you’ll be able to determine the size of your home. How many bedrooms do you need? Bathrooms? Do you want a kitchen large enough for a table or a breakfast nook? If you want, take the size room by room. Decide how large each individual room needs to be and then see how big your house is. If you have to, trim the size room by room to make sure the important things are not cut.
  1. Designing the perfect custom home floor plan is a great way to get your dream home. You don’t want to use plans that everyone else uses. You want your home to fit your family and your lifestyle. With custom floor plans, you can get the home you’ve always wanted.
