What makes a quality floor planner?

Versatility is key. Ensure that a rooms usage can be easily changed be it for your own family or for future buyers. For example can you change your home office into a child’s bedroom if this need arises?

Room layout. Bare in mind that bedrooms are supposed to be places of tranquillity, therefore you should not position any entertainment rooms close by.

An open plan kitchen to the living room or dining room is favoured by many because those who are cooking can still interact with guests or keep an eye on their children. The drawback here is that this may cause other areas of the house to smell of food.

Think about the future when designing the size of each room. Consider how many people will be in this space. Will there be enough room for activities, additional furniture or a pool table in the coming years.

What are your priorities and lifestyle? If you work from home maybe situate the office in a quiet location that receives plenty of light. If you’re a lively family why not have a supplementary room dedicated to entertainment. Ensure there is a good flow from the kitchen to the outdoor area.
