How to Choose a Floorplan

Lennar Tampa

While there are aspects of buying a new home that may feel overwhelming – choosing a floorplan doesn’t need to be one of them. In fact, it should be fun!

Here are a few major things to consider when choosing a floorplan with Lennar:

1.  Townhome or single-family home:

  • If you value a low-maintenance home, enjoy split level living and don’t mind a few stairs, a townhome may be perfect for your needs. This floorplan tends to appeal to first-time homeowners and young adults, as well as those interested in down-sizing.
  • Single-family homes also offer unique benefits like a yard, more privacy, and the option to have one or two-stories depending on your family’s preference and needs.

2.  One-, two- or three-story:

  • Here are a couple factors that impact this decision:
    • Consider one-story to enjoy more living space per square foot.
    • Do you want the bedrooms in your home to all be on the top level, leaving the first floor for entertaining and dining?

3.  How many bedrooms?

  • Do you plan to grow a family in this home? If so, you’ll need to consider how much space you’ll need to accommodate your future little ones.
  • Is this a starter-home? If having multiple kids isn’t in your immediate future you likely won’t require a significant amount of space or bedrooms, although you may opt for a guest room, office or gym. Your lifestyle and family size will help determine the number of rooms you require.

4. Will you need a one, two or three-car garage?

  • How many drivers are in your household?
  • Do you require more storage space for bikes, kayaks, a boat etc.?

5. Will your floorplan accommodate pets?

  • Of course, we can’t forget about our furbabies! Choosing a floorplan for your family means choosing a floorplan for your whole family.
    • Does the layout allow you to let the dogs out easily and clean up after the cats?
    •  Is there enough outdoor space for your pup to run around and play fetch?
