Formal or informal spaces _ if the homeowner is the kind of person who has to entertain constantly, formal spaces become a necessity. A spacious foyer with direct access to the formal living and dining areas and the outdoor areas beyond is a nice design. If there is sufficient space, formal and informal areas can be designed and separated so that one does not intrude into the other, this way a family with younger children can entertain guests as well as retain their privacy. Single storey or multiple floors _ some people like to have a luxurious spread out home on one level while some may like to keep bedrooms on a different level altogether. Besides, a double storey home offers more views of the outside at different angles better than a single storey home.
Functionality of space _ if there is an elderly person or invalid at home with requirement for extra space or young children who need more space around the house, these requirements should be factored in. Making provision for family changes while drawing up floor plans is advantageous even if the requirement is not immediate as future alterations and additions may not be possible always.
A home is the result of the homeowner's strenuous efforts in finding the right balance between costs, designs and spaces. Designing a home that is customized to suit a family's needs calls for a lot of careful forethought to include all the elements that are required without tilting the balance too much.
Interactivity _ For improved user experience, 3D floor may include lots of animated options. On the other hand, 2D plans may not offer that many options. Aside from this, 3D plans give control to the viewer so that they can rotate the design to check the structure from different angles. Moreover, the designs allow the user to press a button to make the furniture appear or disappear inside the rooms.
