1. Size

Your first consideration of any home should be – is it big enough for us? Determine how many bedrooms you need, and add an extra for guests or a hybrid office space. If you’re planning to have additional children or have a parent come live with you, be sure to take that into account as well.

Baths are similar – you may want a master for yourself, an additional for other bedrooms and a powder room near the living areas. Or, you may want a bathroom for every bedroom!

You should also keep in mind the number of stories you want to have. Do you mind having multiple floors and stairs to climb every day, or do you want the home laid out with the minimum number of floors possible?

2. Extra Spaces

Besides the requisite bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, dining room and living room, what other spaces do you want in a home? Do you need a den, family room or great room to stretch out in or let the kids run? Are you looking for a bonus room or home office? Maybe a sun room or guest bedroom – take all of these things into account when choosing and customizing a Progressive Builders house plan.

3. Entertaining Amenities

Do you need a kitchen island or dining bar to entertain at? You may want to see if a breakfast nook or extra space is available in the kitchen for lazy Sunday mornings. Another consideration would be if you need a formal dining room for family holidays or hosting colleagues or out-of-town guests.

Be sure to keep the size of the home, extra spaces you need and entertaining amenities in mind when looking through house plans with Progressive Builders!
