What to Consider When Choosing a Floor Plan

June 24, 2020

A unique floor plan for every unique family. That’s the vision that guides us at Weston Dean Custom Homes. Our custom homes in San Antonio are designed to suit the individual needs of each customer. A truly custom home building process is essential because one size does not fit all when it comes to homes. The perfect floor plan for you is possible, and we can help bring it to life.

Designing a custom home may seem like a daunting task, and it is a serious undertaking. The good news is that we’re ready to help you out no matter how much thought you’ve put into your custom homewhether you’ve just recently decided you want to build a custom home, or you can already sketch out your dream home with your eyes closed. If you’re not sure how to start, let’s take a look at some of the simple questions to ask yourself when designing your home. 

How do you want your home to fit in your lot?

If you already have a lot, our build on your lot process will begin by evaluating the best way to build on your land. You can design a beautiful home, but if it doesn’t work with your lot, then you won’t fully enjoy it. Large windows can make a room feel special, but it matters what you’re looking at through those windows. If they’re giving you an awkward view of your neighbor’s backyard, then the room wouldn’t be the same. We design homes to fit seamlessly into the context of the lot, because it truly is a part of your home.

What are your needs?

Another way to think about this: what do you require in a home to fit your lifestyle? These questions should guide you when you think about fundamental parts of your home design, like the number of bedrooms, bathrooms, and flexible spaces. How big is your family? Is it growing? Are kids leaving the nest soon? You know your family and what works for you. Another essential for many people is the home office. If you work from home often or all the time, a dedicated space for work can make a huge difference.

Your home design should reflect many other aspects of your lifestyle as well. For many people, a luxurious home theatre room would be a dream come true, and we can certainly make that happen. But if you’re more likely to watch Netflix on your laptop, then a home theatre might just collect dust. The kitchen is another space that your personality can really shine. Do you treasure the time you spend cooking? Would you like to entertain guests at an island/bar? Your custom home can make all that possible, and it will be exciting to design it.

Your dream home should be built specifically for you and your family. A custom home can serve your needs perfectly. Otherwise, you just have to hope you get lucky with a home that was built for someone else. As a San Antonio custom home builder, Weston Dean Custom Homes works with you to design the perfect home for you, based largely on your lifestyle and the land you’ll be building on. Contact us to schedule an appointment, and learn more about our design services.
