Whether you’re a family man trying to build a better home for your family or an aspiring architect, we think that this blog can help you. Here, we have compiled a list of things that you’d want to avoid when making a floor plan. Here’s what you need to know:

Not sticking to a budget

If you’re someone who’s planning to build your dream home for your family, chances are, you’ve already set a budget for it. This is a good place to start considering that expenses are one of the most important things that you need to consider when building a house.

However, the mistake that many people make is that they don’t stick to their already established budget. When this happens, they get overwhelmed with different ideas such as making one room bigger than what the budget can cover, adding unnecessary rooms, changing arrangements, etc.

Also, you’d want to avoid going over the budget during this early stage of building your house because there are tons of unexpected costs that you have to make before your house gets finished building.

Not including furniture in the plan

If you’re making a floor plan, you’re putting in the dimensions of each room that you want to put inside your house. Although this is common practice, some people forget to consider their furniture when designing a floor plan.

When this happens, the architect has to redesign the floor plan once again to make necessary adjustments for the furniture to fit. To avoid making this mistake, try to get the measurements of your desired pieces of furniture beforehand so that the architect can take note of it before creating the floor plan.

Not leaving room for storage

One of the most common mistakes that we see when people propose a floor plan to our architects is that they don’t leave space for their storage. Naturally, you’d have various things in your house that you don’t want other people to see. They’re not necessarily illegal things but they’re not pleasing to the eyes either.

This includes your broom, cleaning products, old pieces of furniture and more. Also, not considering a storage room will make your house feel tighter and smaller because you’ll have more things scattered across your home.
