Whether you’re building a new home or purchasing an existing one, the layout of your house is one of the most critical choices that you will make.
The floor plan is paramount to the traffic and flow of the house.
Consider your lifestyle needs. Do you like to entertain? Then you might like to consider an open plan living and dining area, or perhaps an alfresco dining area out the back. Do you like to cook? Then the layout of your kitchen will be really important to you. Or maybe you have a lot of tools etc. that you need storage for?
Ensure you have a practical design for traffic flow. This means checking that hallways do not have tight and sharp turns. Other things to look for are wide doorways and open rooms, so moving around the house and between furniture is easy.
