Custom Home Builders and Floor Plans

Floor PlanBefore any construction begins, you have to decide on a floor plan for your custom home. Here are the types you can consider:

Types of Floor Plans

Open Plan

In the open-plan, the common areas, such as the kitchen, living area, and dining area, are not separated by a wall. It focuses on having as much open space as possible. Here are its pros:


An open-plan floor makes it easy to socialize even when you are in different spaces of the house. For example, you can catch up with your family members as you make dinner.

Easy movement

Moving from one room to another without opening and closing doors makes it much easier.

Easy layout change

It is easy to move furniture and accessories around to have a different feel whenever you want.

Natural light

Because there are no barriers, the light coming through the windows lights up the whole space. It’s a very progressive and unique floor plan.

Increase in home value

Many home buyers want open-plan floors. Having this in your custom home will add to its value and many cases, as it’s seen as a progressive and modern look.

However, there are some downsides:

  • Reduced privacy
  • It isn’t quiet

Closed Plan

In a closed plan, each room is separated by a wall. Here is why you would consider this option:

Energy saver

Unlike the open plan, you only heat or cool the room in use, so it’s a more energy efficient setup.

More room for different designs

Since every room is separate from the other, you can have different styles. This provides for more overall flexibility, as you’re not trying to apply one look to a large area.

Sound control

The walls block out a lot of sound, so the provide excellent acoustics.

Custom Floor Plan

You can also choose to customize the floor plan as it is already a custom home. You can decide on how open or closed you want it, the layout, accessories, etc.
