How to Choose a Custom Floor Plan
Wondering how to choose a custom floor plan? Check out these tips.

Most people believe a custom home or customizable home is not as readily available and affordable as a pre-built house in Maryland. The perk is that you have the benefits of a new construction home and the creative freedom to have your house be exactly as you want it. One of the biggest choices you will have to make in your search for your dream home will be choosing a custom floor plan. Here are a few tips to get you started.

The Dream

If you are in search of a new home, you probably have a unique idea for what your dream home is. Perhaps you lead a lifestyle involving a particular hobby or profession that needs its own space; perhaps you like entertaining or reading or gaming, and you imagine your house to have just the right design for it. Map out your dream house criteria as you go forward.

Architectural Style

Part of that dream will be the home’s architectural style. The exterior look of the home will inform others of your personal style and also be what you look at every day as you go in and out. The exterior will also influence the interior style. For example, if you like simple yet artistic surroundings, the craftsman style might appeal to you.


Next, consider the flow of each custom home floor plan. Imagine walking through the house, from floor to floor, going about your daily life. How easy is it to move from one room to the next? Will it be awkward moving from the kitchen to the dining room, or from the dining room to the living room? Flow will inform how comfortably you can function in your home.

The Fundamentals

While your dream home might have some fantastical elements like hidden doorways and secret passageways, you’ll of course need to take the fundamentals into account. For instance, how many bedrooms and bathrooms must you have? Moreover, concerning lifestyle, will you count a home office, a large kitchen, or a mudroom as a must-have? These elements can also count as essentials.


Lastly, match your dream custom home floor plan to your budget. How can you make this plan happen within your means? If you are looking for a home in Anne Arundel and adjoining Counties, in Maryland, Ameri-Star Homes can work with you for a great solution.
