How To Choose A Flooring Plan Ideal For A Bathurst Based Home

If you are looking to build a new house, you will probably come across a number of floor plan options. A home floor plan is a schematic that provides an top-down view of a house and depicts the connections between the rooms and spaces.

Floor plans are an essential tool when planning a new house. So, what makes a floor plan a good one? And when finding a floor plan that is right for you, what do you need to consider?

Main Features of a Decent Floor Plan

The basis for a well-designed home that is a pleasure to live in is a successful floor plan. Choosing wisely ensures that there will be better solar gain (or shade in warmer climates), good flow between rooms, noise control, and the resale value of your home is likely to increase.

Have a highly considered configuration of rooms

Rooms should function together for optimum flow and enjoyment. Bathrooms should not face popular areas such as a dining room, and kitchens should open up to a dining or living room. Bedrooms should be far from entertainment spaces.

Be flexible and versatile

When designing your dream home, flexibility may not be something that you consider. Choosing a floor plan with versatile rooms, however, ensures that an office space may be transformed quickly into a bedroom or vice versa. This is especially necessary if you intend to sell in the future or if you change your mind about the layout of your home.


Take Size into account

It is important to carefully consider every area in your house so that there is enough space to travel about and complete the desired activities. It sounds simple, but one of the key places that individuals fail to recognize is this.

How to choose the plan that is right for you ?

When choosing or designing a floor plan for you, it is important that you also consider the following:

Block Layout

Begin by considering your block’s size and shape. The size of the block may determine the size of the house you can build.


Know your house size

The size of the house will depend on the block’s constraints in certain cases. A sloping block, for instance, limits the size of a house that can be built on it. For a sloping block, a typical house design is a single-storey split-level home. If you have more space to work, the needs of your family and your lifestyle should be considered. This will assist in deciding the size of your floor plan and the number of storeys.


You may have to consult with your local council and other relevant authorities about legislation and restrictions before continuing with your floor plans. Your choices can be limited by constraints such as house heights, home sizes and environmental concerns.

Lifestyle choices

You should always consider your family ‘s preferred layout of spaces, size of spaces and other unique specifications. Do you really want to walk up two flights of stairs to hang your washing? Do not forget to think about your regular tasks such as laundry and house cleaning.

Experts always help

At first, floor plans can seem confusing with various abbreviations and symbols. In terms of flooring, wall heights and ceiling heights, it is imperative you understand measurements which is why at Daniel Finn Builder we help you every step of the way to ensure you are able to construct your dream home.
