Did you know that a great bedroom plan can make your entire home better organized? A well-designed plan can add significant value to your home. It’s not uncommon to see newly constructed homes with organized floor plans that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars less than houses constructed on more traditional designs. This is because a well-designed plan makes it easier to do all of the interior decorating and floor planning that need to be done.
Bedroom plans were most commonly used in rural, small home styles, like those built during the late Victorian age or World War II. While many modern day floor plans allow for separate rooms to be situated beside each other in the house, the average bedroom plans of the past tend to have just one main hallway. This often leaves hallways as an after thought and often results in hallways that lead to either the main living room the family room, or the kitchen being packed with household clutter that doesn’t have a place to go.
The great thing about a well designed floor plan is that it leaves ample room for each area of the house to have its own unique personality. If you’re fortunate enough to live in a home with two or three bedrooms, you should look into a split bedroom floor plan. In a split bedroom floor plan, you’ll often find that the main bedroom is located next to the children’s bedroom, which is usually located across the hall from the main living area. Depending on the size and layout of your home, this might be a good idea.
Many people don’t realize that the bathroom is often considered part of the living room. Many families don’t spend a lot of time in their bathrooms, but if you have a large family, it can make it easier to do all the necessary grooming and personal care tasks when you have an available space for doing so. For this reason, your floor plan will be especially important. It will dictate what functional areas you can put a sink, toilet, shower and even a walk-in closet, depending on what size your home and/or bedroom is.
If your master suite is large enough to include both your master suite and another bedroom, consider including a guest room on the floor plan. One thing to keep in mind is that your guests need a way to get to the other bedrooms when they are staying over. You want to maximize your floor space by placing a larger shower and bathtub in each bedroom. If your master suite is long and narrow, consider putting several single showers in several of your bedrooms so that guests have access to a shower when it’s time for them to shower. If your master suite is shorter and less than tall, then it’s possible to still use single showers in several of your bedrooms, but be sure to place them out of sight in places like the hallways or entryways to your rooms. Showers can also provide some extra storage in your master suite or guest room, which is useful when you have a large number of items that need to be stored in these locations.
If you have a smaller home with a cramped master suite or two adjacent bedrooms, you’ll need to work a bit harder on your floor plans. You still have plenty of options to make your bedroom floor plans fun and efficient. Consider using different color schemes and textures for your flooring to create a unique feel. You could try to paint one of your rooms a color from your bedding (if you have that option) to give your room an attractive color scheme. Or, take some of your wall paint and wallpaper and combine those with some funky, fun patterns and designs to spice things up.
If you have a smaller home with two bedrooms, then your bathroom is probably the most important room in the house. You’ll want to create a bathroom floor plan that is not only functional and practical, but beautiful as well. One of the easiest places to start is with the countertop. A beautiful, durable stone or granite countertop can add class and distinction to any bathroom. The countertop can be customized to include or eliminate any type of vanity unit and add interest to the first floor living room or bedroom.
Bedroom floor plans with lots of personality and detail can be created even in a small apartment or condo. Simply remember to use your judgment and stay away from using too many adjectives. When you’re done, simply sit back and enjoy your newly designed room. Your friends and family will love it!
