Planning the size and shape of your rooms is undoubtedly, one of the biggest home-building decisions. You may plan not to exceed the square footage. At the same time, you may want your home to have that aesthetic appeal while ensuring it’ll have a good resale value.
Here, we have shared some tips on planning the size and shape of your home the right way:
Deciding upon the size
It can be a challenge to determine what size of the home will be right for you and your family. To make an informed decision, consider these 4 factors:
1. Family’s needs and requirements
If you plan to live with your family, you may choose to build your parent’s bedroom on the ground floor. Also, if you entertain a lot, then place the guest bathroom in the same floor as the living room. Considering your family’s needs can help you easily choose the right floor plan.
2. Consider your budget
Apart from your family’s needs, you also need to consider your budget. The way it generally goes is, the more square footage your floor plans cover, the higher the costs will be. However, cutting corners, such as skimping on rooms, can reduce utility. Here are some recommendations on room sizes to give a general idea of what you may need:
- Master bedroom: 200 to 600 square feet
- Living room: 300 to 800 square feet
- Kitchen: 150 to 300 square feet
- Bedroom: 100 to 200 square feet
- Bathroom: 60 to 150 square feet
- Staircases: 100 square feet per story
3. Adhere to zoning limits
The design you choose may set limits to how big or small the house can be built on a particular lot. Also, while building your home, you have to ensure that you don’t exceed the zone limitations.
4. Designing for resale
The less unique the design and layout of your home, the higher are the odds of getting a good resale value. Most people prefer houses that have a standard design, thought-out layout of rooms, and most importantly, comfortable to live in.
