For example, if you have small children....you may not want their bedroom near the living room so that when they go to bed the TV won't keep them awake or if there are stairs in the house can you block access to them easily to keep little ones safe? We have stairs to a bonus room with a door that can be locked to prevent access instead of the stairway being open.
Are you an empty-nester who wants an open floor plan on one level? Do you need a lot of storage space or work space? There are so many things to consider when choosing a floor plan that fits your life style and family. So think about how you go through your day as you are trying to decide on one!
