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.
Colonial floor plans are elegant without being ostentatious. Moreover, they have an element of history attached to them. These floor plans come from the early American settlements of the East Coast. Colonial architecture ranged from New England to Georgia and, therefore, there are regional variations in style.
The façade is brick or wooden, with large windows. Ranch homes typically have an L_shaped hall which combines the living room and dining room into one area, with a hallway leading to the family room and a group of bedrooms all on one side of the house. A patio at the back with a glass sliding door leading to it is not unusual for a ranch house.
A floor plan will allow one to see exactly where furniture should be placed in a room for optimal design. With a plan of action no longer will there be a letdown when the delivery of the new furnishings come only to see that they will not fit into a room or even through the door or up a staircase. With a floor plan one will know that instead of a sofa and loveseat maybe only a sofa and a chair will work in the allotted space. When purchasing a dining room table, by having a plan one will know exactly what size and shape table will fit perfectly in the room. Before buying a king size bed that will not fit, with a floor plan one will know that the bedroom may only fit a queen size bed comfortably with one tall dresser instead of a long triple dresser.
