To give builders and potential homebuyers a more modern twist on a classic design and annual top seller, this floor plan opened up the central living areas of the home to create a family-friendly layout. A large island with seating for up to five is the hub of this space, with an expanded family dining area and expansive views of the great room and an outdoor room with a fireplace. A separate home office offers creative lifestyle opportunities, while a large and convenient utility room makes house chores easier and more efficient.
It’s no surprise that open floor plans are the layout of choice for today’s buyers. What explains their immense popularity? Many reasons: open layouts make small homes feel larger, create excellent sightlines, and promote a modern sense of relaxation and casual living. Buyers with children can keep an eye on the little ones while cooking, while those who love entertaining will appreciate the ease of interacting with guests while putting last-minute touches on dinner. Although the degree of openness can vary, these homes generally feature kitchens that flows right into the main living areas (frequently an island provides a bit of definition). They may also display open dining rooms and easy access to outdoor living.
As the population ages, more families will become caretakers for elderly parents or relatives. These house plans with in-law suites offer the needed space (often on the first floor, ideal for a person with limited mobility). Of course, in-law suites can be used by buyers in many different situations, from owners who simply want comfortable guest accommodations to those with nannies or live-in caretakers. The suites themselves range from a simple bedroom and bathroom to more elaborate apartments suitable for semi-independent living (older children, perhaps returned from college and looking for a job, will especially appreciate the latter type). Some of these suites are even detached for the home for greater privacy. Either way, a house plan with an in-law suite offers outstanding versatility for the future. Adding onto an existing home?
