Why is a floorplan is essential when making alterations to a house?
You may be considering removing an internal wall or several internal walls reconfiguring the house layout – a floorplan will ensure you do not waste time and money giving a clear visual representation of the changes planned.
Selling your home – a floorplan is essential
If you are selling your home a floorplan is essential to enable potential buyers to understand the floor space and layout of the property.
When marketing your property a floorplan will increase interest in your property and thereby your chances of selling your home.
Whilst photographs can make your property look desirable a floorplan supports the photos providing a realistic picture of the layout of the property. Photographs are not always shown of every room especially lofts, basements, box rooms, cupboards etc whereas a floorplan shows all the available space reinforcing the overall size and potential of a property increasing perceived value.
A floorplan will not only allow a potential purchaser to visualise the room layout but the flow of the property too. In addition the dimensions will ensure that a purchaser can ascertain if their furniture will fit into the space or use as a template for their new interior design layout.
Good floorplans and Bad floorplans
When either looking at an existing floorplan or planning a new floorplan it is essential to make the right decision. A good floorplan will:-
- maximise space
- create a natural room flow
- enhance your life
- maximise light
- ensure a good airflow
However, getting the floorplan right is essential as if you get it wrong a bad floorplan can:-
- create a cramped feeling
- make the property appear dark
- may effect the resale value of the property
- create an uninviting ambience
Floorplans have changed over the years
Over the years floorplans have changed and evolved, typically in the Victorian era a house would comprise of several rooms positioned along a long hallway. Today’s homes have a variety of layouts with open plan living popular. Developer’s often try to include a larger number of bedrooms as a selling point but sometimes the bedrooms are comprised in size enabling only single beds rather than doubles and minimal furniture.
A good floorplan is key whatever the space available and one that appeals to you whilst you live in the property but also with a view to being appealing to a wide variety of tastes when the time comes to sell.
A floorplan that has flexibility is good as you may for example wish to use a room as an office but at a later date use the room as a child’s bedroom or vice versa.
