How is space distributed throughout a new home?

NHAB Study Looks at How Finished Space is Distributed in New Homes

The National Home Builders Association just released a study examining the average distribution of finished space in a typical new home built by NHBA members. This study answers questions such as:

How large are rooms in a typical new home?

How much square footage goes into bedrooms, bathrooms, living rooms, or kitchens?

Below is a list of the average percent distribution of finished space in the typical new home built by NAHB’s members:

Master Bedroom: 12%Raleigh New Homes | Home Sizes in Raleigh

Master Bath: 6%

Kitchen: 11.6%

Family Room: 11.5%

Living Room: 8.6%

Dining Room: 7.4%

Other Bedrooms: 16.8%

Foyer: 3.4%

Laundry: 3.7%

 

As you can see, the average square footage alloted to the master bedroom, kitchen, and family room are much higher than other rooms and very close to each other in percentage, indicating a consistent emphasis on these rooms.

The study also published results for the average size of these rooms, divided into homes under 2,000 sq ft; 2,000-2,999 sq ft; and over 3,000 sq ft.

Average room sizes for new homes included:

Master Bedroom: 309Raleigh New Homes | Home Sizes Raleigh

Master Bath: 160

Kitchen: 306

Family Room: 404

Living Room: 330

Dining Room: 216

Other Bedrooms: 481

Foyer: 101

Laundry: 102

Great Room (can indicate square footage from connected spaces): 550

Walk In Kitchen Pantry: 37

Other finished spaces addressed in this study included hallways, studies, bonus rooms, and breakfast nooks.

Data for this study was collected from an NAHB survey of single-family builder members. Click here to read the full study, from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), courtesy of HousingEconomics.com.

7 Keys to Open Concept Floor Plans | Custom Home Builder Tips and Tricks

Posted by Penny Hull on Tue, Aug 06, 2013 @ 07:08 AM

How to design an open concept floor plan

The term "open concept floor plan" can refer to many different architectural design features. 

How to design an open concept floor plan | Custom home builders

In this article, we've put together a few tips on how to maximize the openness of your new home.

Search for these key features in online floor plan guides, or make a list of all your favorites from this list, and we'll show you what we can design and build just for you.

 

 

 

 

1. Minimize hallways. Get inspiration from floor plan designs that minimize wasted space by eliminating unnecessary hallways. Many craftsman style homes are considered open concept designs because they minimize hallways and maximize the functionality of each home space.

For example, many craftsman homes add benches, open shelving, or storage nooks inside hallways to increase their usability. Click here for ten craftsman style home features - and learn common techniques for building an open concept craftsman home.

In this example, a craftsman style home plan, see how to design an open concept floor plan, with a few simple modifications:

How to design an open concept floor plan | Custom home buildersThese changes - made to a Frank Betz floor plan concept - center on removing half walls and adding archways. The original floor plan already minimized hallways, limiting wasted space.

How to design an open concept floor plan | Custom home builders2. Orient rooms. The rooms you use most often should flow into each other.

When designing an open concept floor plan, a key trick is to keep the kitchen open to the family room and breakfast nook.

Take a look at the Treehouse kitchen, breakfast room, and family room layout: the island was moved closer to the breakfast room and rotated to face directly into the family room to maximize the open design (and keep the wall of windows in sight while working at the prep sink).

As you browse floor plans, reference this guide to kitchen floor plan design - and learn more about how to read kitchen floor plans.

If you prefer island kitchen designs, find out more about how to orient the room based on a kitchen work triangle.

3. Create focal points, with clear lines of sight. A fireplace is often the focal point of a room - and it should be visible from every angle to maximize the feeling of free-flow.

For instance, in this version of the Remington, a three-sided glass fireplace was carefully placed in the master bedroom with clear lines of sight from the bedroom entry, sitting area, and bathroom.

Tip: when designing a floor plan around clear lines of sight, the Stanton Homes interior design team takes into account all the details - down to kitchen pendant lighting placement. (For instance, large pendant lights hanging over the island could block the view between rooms. We'll give you guidance on light fixture size, number, and placement.)

4. Designate a center point. Plan your home around one room - most often the kitchen becomes the hub of the home - and focus on that space, first.

How to design an open concept floor plan | Custom home builders

Inevitably, the kitchen island serves as a cooking bar, homework station, and conversation area.

So take advantage of this space by including the most useful features to you.

Tip: when choosing a central space to base your open concept floor plan on, brainstorm about what types of storage matter most to your lifestyle. Open shelving for cookbooks? Outward-facing cubbies for kid's homework? Glass-faced cabinets for displaying fine china? Built-in wine racks? An island can serve as a storage space for more than just pots, pans, and baking dishes.

5. Open upwards. Don't forget the possibilities that open up with ceiling design.

How to design an open concept floor plan | Custom home builders

Two story ceilings, arched openings, barrel vaults, ceiling vaults, and other specialty ceilings will draw the eye upward, even in smaller floor plans - making them feel much larger on the inside.

Tip: varying the height of your ceilings will ALWAYS have a dramatic effect - making a home feel larger inside.

Instead of including 9 foot ceilings throughout the first floor, consider raising your living room ceiling or master bedroom ceiling to 11 feet tall. You'll be amazed at the difference this can make. (This is not a feature you can change later on, so talk to your builder about what ceiling heights they offer, at what cost.)

6. Add architectural details. Consider adding columns, rather than full walls, between rooms.

The Summerlyn, a Frank Betz floor plan, and the Carwile, a Stanton Homes custom design, are two great example of what columns add to an open concept floor plan.

See photos of custom homes that incorporate decorative columns:

The Maple Lane

The Mastrosimone (take a look at the master bedroom and the kitchen)

How to design an open concept floor plan | Custom home builders

7. Include fewer formal spaces. And less separation of living areas.

If you have a formal living room or formal dining room in your current home, how often do you use those rooms?

If the answer is "hardly ever," you may want to eliminate these space in your new home.

In this version of the Peay, the formal dining room is completely open to the kitchen. Wainscoting panneling keeps the area formal, whle minimized walls maintain the open concept.

How to customize a floor plan | Custom home design

Posted by Penny Hull on Thu, May 02, 2013 @ 06:05 AM

From "The Dugan" to "The Peay"

                 How to transform a floor plan to make it perfect for you

Everybody loves The Dugan. It's one of Stanton Homes most popular plans. And it was designed especially for the family that built it. Over and over again.

Because even when a plan is perfect for one family, it will need something different for another. Which is why the best custom builders design - and re-design - until the home you're building is perfect for you.

Here's how dramatic the changes can be when you have the flexibility to modify a plan, while retaining its integrity (by a design team that draws it up for you to visualize, even before you buy it.) 

The Dugan: Wheelchair accessible MIL design

 How to modify a floor plan - Custom floor plan how to

The original Dugan floor plan was custom designed and hand-crafted as a fully accessible, mother in law suite home.

The home was designed to provide an environment that flowed with open spaces: 

- Open concept kitchen and great room

- Second story overlook

- Two story barrel vault foyer

- Large hardwood master suite with his-and-hers spacious bathroom,

- Front porch

- Rear screen porch. 

An elevator was added to the concept, and the powder room was moved from its initial placement. 

Take a video tour to see the details, inside The Dugan:

 

The Peay: Six bedroom custom design

The Peay is a modified version of The Dugan, with custom modifications including reversal of the floor plan layout to accomodate the shape of its homeowner's lot.

 

PeayPlanRedline3

On the first floor, the design team:

- Expanded the screen porch

- Expanded the great room

- Included a walk in closet instead of a powder room/elevator combination

- Moved the fireplace to an exterior wall surrounded by windows

- Expanded laundry room, adding space around the sink

- Expanded the garage

- Enclosed the master bathroom commode room

 

 

 

 

Here is the second floor of the Dugan before custom changes:

DuganSecondFloorThe original second floor of the Dugan was designed to be a separate living area for the homeowner's mother, with private Living Room, Bedroom with second Master Bath, and plenty of open space.

 

 

 

 

On the second floor, the design team:

How to modify a floor plan

 

- Modified the vaulted ceiling into a two story design, adding upper windows

- Reworked the loft

- Converted the optional bonus room into a sixth bedroom

- Redesigned the bath

Top 5 New home storage ideas | Built in storage designs

Posted by Penny Hull on Thu, Mar 28, 2013 @ 05:03 AM

New home storage solutions

Photos of storage ideas

New home designs will continue to focus on incorporating plenty of storage space. Some popular built in storage centers include: built-in window benches, bookcases, entertainment centers, cubbies, and more. See photos of recently completed NC new homes - and get ideas for maximizing storage in your new home.

Storage Idea #1: Built in window bench with storage

2013 New Home Storage Solutions | Photos of Storage Ideas

 

Storage should save space in your new home, not eat it up.

More homebuyers are including built-in window benches with
"secret" storage hidden below.

Built-in benches provide extra seating, and can be used to store easily available, bulky items such as throw blankets.

 

 

2013 New Home Storage Solutions | Photos of Storage Ideas

 

 

 

These two photos are examples of custom handcrafted built in benches.

The first bench is tucked at one end of a sunroom.

The second bench is located in a breakfast nook, beside a rear French door.

 

 

 

Storage Idea #2: Built in storage cubbies

Top 5 2013 New home storage ideas | Built in storage designs

 

New home storage solutions are all about the ability to both store AND display.

 

The storage cubbies in this example were added below a serving bar connecting the kitchen to the family room.

 

This storage solution saves space and adds dimension, while serving as a convenient drop-in and sort-out source.

 

These cubbies are perfect for decorative bins, books, movies, games and toys.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Storage Idea #3: Built in bookcases

 2013 New Home Storage Solutions | Photos of Storage Ideas

When you build a custom home, bookcases can be added to almost any room - and your builder can give you some great ideas for how to stack, place and arrange them to suit your needs, best.

Common locations for built-in bookcases are the great room, home office, and play/bonus room, but with a custom home you can use your imagination to add put-it-away centers to any spot where things can be tucked.

In the photo to the right, the bookcase was further customized to create a space for a piano, with shelves for music to the right, and a framed photo area above.

 

Storage Idea #4: Built in bookcase cabinetry

2013 New Home Storage Solutions | Photos of Storage Ideas

Another popular design feature is built-in bookcases with cabinet storage below.

In this example, taken from a version of the Dugan plan, a full wall was converted into a built-in bookcase/cabinet entertainment center that serves as a focal point for a soaring great room.

 

See more photos of this home, click here.

 

Storage Idea #5: Built in entertainment centers

Top 5 2013 New home storage ideas | Built in storage designsBuilt-in entertainment centers can be configured into any shape or size when you build a custom home with Stanton Homes.

In this example, built-in storage was designed to stack side-by-side with the fireplace. A wall mount was installed in preparation for a hanging flat screen TV. It's all wrapped in classic color, to bring even more attention to the artistry.

 

 

 

 

New home designs provide efficient, creative, and discrete storage solutions, from built-in window benches to bookcases, entertainment centers, cubbies, and shelves that fit your lifestyle. Contact Stanton Homes to learn more about building a custom home in North Carolina.

Hardwood Floor Transitions: Making Open Floor Plans Work

Posted by Penny Hull on Fri, Mar 01, 2013 @ 05:03 AM

Open Floor Plan Design Tips

How to transition your Hardwood Floors

The design team at Stanton Homes can answer all your new home questions and give style, tone, and layout recommendations that meet your needs.

One common question we are asked is: How many types of flooring can I include in an open floor plan - where all flooring transitions are visible? Is it possible to have tile in my kitchen, hardwood in my great room, and stone in my foyer, without creating a dizzying effect?

Below are our top 5 examples of how to transition from wood to tile, stone, or carpet.

Floor Transition Example #1: Kitchen to open great room

Open floor plan design - how to transition from wood to tile or stone

 

Can I use tile in my kitchen if it is completely open to a hardwood great room, or should I also use hardwood flooring in the kitchen?

Even in very open floor plans, the great room and kitchen flooring styles do NOT need to match. 

In this example, taken from a version of the Dugan, the kitchen, breakfast room, and foyer are all tile, with a hardwood great room.

 

As long as the flooring transitions align with other design elements (the walls and overlook in this case), they will not interrupt the flow of an open floor plan.

Floor Transition Example #2: Foyer to living room

Open floor plan design - how to transition from wood to tile or stone

In this second example, taken from a version of the Beaufort, the foyer and kitchen are both hardwood with a carpted living room in between. In this case, the staircase could use carpet or hardwood flooring.

It is important to give each room of your home a distinct purpose, which is why we find the flooring transitions in this home pleasant.

The transition helps portray the foyer, living room, and kitchen as individual rooms, not just open space.

Floor Transition Example #3: Living room / foyer to staircase

Open floor plan design - how to transition from wood to tile or stone

 

In this example (taken from a version of the Mastrosimone), the foyer, great room, dinning room, and staircase all use hardwood flooring.

The second story, however, transitions into carpet with one final "step" of hardwood. 

 

 

 

Open floor plan design - how to transition from wood to tile or stone

 

 

Becuase the carpet is not visible from the first floor, this is a great way to save money on flooring costs, while keeping the first floor completely upscale.

 

 

 

 

Floor Transition Example #4:  Steps in a staircase

Open floor plan design - how to transition from wood to tile or stone

 

Can I transition from from hardwood to carpet in the MIDDLE of a staircase?

In this version of the Firebird, hardwood is used for all steps with open wrought-iron railing. From the foyer and living room, only hardwood is visible.

The homeowner desired a clear transition from the "formal living areas" to a softer feel for the upper bedrooms.   Including hardwood on just the exposed treads can also save some cost.

Floor Transition Example #5: Hallway to a bathroom or laundry room

Open floor plan design - how to transition from wood to tile or stone

Whether you have carpeted or hardwood hallways, there is a nearly seemless transition into a bathroom, laundry, or mudroom.

While full baths have either tile or vinyl flooring almost without exception, a Powder Room or Half Bath can be floored in hardwoods as well, if a consistent flooring is desired.

With Stanton Homes, you'll be able to ask the advice of our on-staff experts before you choose your flooring.  We'll help you decide what works best for your lifestyle and budget in your new custom home.

How to Choose Your Front Porch Style

Posted by Penny Hull on Tue, Sep 27, 2011 @ 12:09 PM

How Much Will it Cost to include a Front Porch in my Raleigh New Home?

Planning Your Front Porch Front Porch Design Ideas

Before choosing a floor plan with extensive porch space, take into consideration the amount of space around your new home, which can determine how large the porch can be.

Will trees be in the way and need to be removed?

Is there enough space to accommodate the extra width of a large porch without encroaching required setbacks?

Front proch style features can also determine several cost factors (such as types of building materials required).

Do you want the porch to have rounded corners or traditional 90 degree angles? Do you want running trim or molding?

Front Porch Design Ideas - Houzz Ideabook of Front Porches

How Much Does it Cost to Build a Front Porch in Raleigh?

The cost of a front porch in a Raleigh new home can vary depending on:

  • Total square footage of porch space
  • Type of porch surface (can be concrete, wood, brick, slate, tile, or other flooring surface)
  • Type of railings
  • Type of support pillars (Hand built Craftsman stone columns are the most expensive, basic 4x4 support post are least expensive, with a wide range of options between)
  • Type of roof (standing seam metal, rounded, copper, dimensional shingles)
