How important is square footage? Main Idaho Real Estate Insights

You need a lot more space if your house is not designed well.

Having a great floor plan will actually save you money. Do you need another whole room for a work area or just a bigger master bedroom with a well designed and defiend area to add a computer and cabinets?

There are many things you can do to create a better living space. For example a split level plan offers the ability to have two living rooms, one formal living room and another for family and kids. On the other hand, you could put that space into a single level and have a great room that is slightly smaller?

Kids room

Many families have a small business. Do you need an office, a desk in an existing room or just the kitchen table for an evening? Setting up a place that works so you have a productive work space that also works for the rest of the family is important. You would have many fights if you worked during prime time tv and your office was in the tv room.

Toys are an important thing for a family. They normally end up scattered everywhere when kids are playing. If you want to contain the toys you need a designated toy room or play area.  Having the toys in the main living area may cause turmoil.

So if you are thinking about a new home spend some time touring homes to get ideas. Also spend time with your spouse to figure out what your need are. Share this with a drafting designer or builder with help you find the best opportunity on how to use the space within the walls.
