Are you shopping for your next home? Your lifestyle will determine if the home’s floor plan will work for you.
Do you entertain frequently? You should search for a home with a bathroom on the main floor near the living room so guests do not have to go upstairs or through several rooms to find the bathroom.
Do you enjoy cooking? A large kitchen with plenty of counter space and a good oven is must then. If you prefer to cook with gas you will need to be sure the new home has access.
Do you enjoy entertaining outdoors? Make sure there is an easy main entrance to the lanai or deck. You don’t want the sliding glass door in the master bedroom to be the only way your guests can access the back yard (yes, I’ve seen that before!).
Do you want a big screen TV to watch the game on? You will need a large wall to anchor it on as well as a large room for plenty of seating if you plan on hosting weekend football viewing parties.
Are you a pack rat? Make sure there are plenty of closets, kitchen and bathroom cabinets and other storage solutions to hold your holiday decorations, family keepsakes and more.
Do you have large pieces of furniture you want to keep? Check the dimensions of the rooms and walls to be sure your dining table or big leather sectional will fit.
These are some of the questions you should ask yourself when you begin your home search.
