Why Are Floor plans Important?

Example Nanaimo Floor Plan

Choosing the right floor plans for your new home in Nanaimo is probably one of the most important things you'll ever do in your house purchase.

Selecting the proper floorplan is important for a number of reasons.

First, you want to make sure that the floorplan or layout of the house suits your living needs.  People with older children or frequent guests may want a split floorplan - one where the master bedroom is on one side of the house and the guest bedrooms are on the other - while buyers with younger children might prefer their bedroom to be close to the nursery room.

Next, if you buy a home with a 'dated' floorplan you'll likely end up doing a lot of updating to match today's lifestyles or end up paying the price when it comes time to sell your home.  Older houses in Nanaimo often have dated floorplans, which are layouts with smaller rooms and a lack of natural light.  People in the home buying market today typically prefer large open rooms and spaces that are bright and sunny.

Third, consider whether or not the floorplan 'makes sense' for the way you live.  By that I mean, do the individual rooms and spaces naturally and effortlessly flow from one to the other.  One example of this is the dining room being adjacent to the kitchen.  Another example is where the kitchen overlooks the living area.  That's important because with many of today's buyers the kitchen has become the focal point for the family to gather and share times.
