It is impossible to find a house that has everything you want and nothing you don’t, but that doesn’t mean you won’t still be happy. All you need to do is prioritize by picking the features that are most important to you and accepting that even something you love might have its negative flipside. For instance, those numerous windows that let in enough sunlight to reduce your electricity bill will increase your home heating costs come wintertime, and loudness in any part of an open floor plan can be heard throughout the house because there aren’t enough interior walls to dampen the noise. Decide what is nonnegotiable, keep an open mind for the rest, and weigh the advantages against the drawbacks of each house plan. There will be something that works for you.
Improved insulation materials and techniques for walls and windows have made it more affordable to heat and cool homes with the changing seasons, but there are also house plans that can help optimize comfort in the home while lessening the blow to your wallet. Look for ENERGY STAR/Green house plans offered by companies like The House Designers to ensure you build the most energy-efficient home for your location. Choosing a design with a number of well-placed windows that can be used to create cooling cross ventilation will reduce the need for air conditioning in warmer locales, while a compact plan that minimizes the external surface area to volume ratio—think saltbox rather than sprawling ranch—will conserve heat during harsh winters. A little planning at the beginning can go a long way toward reducing bills in the future.

Think about the time you presently spend in certain rooms in your home, and why. Some families like to make the kitchen the focal point for daily family gatherings and would require a large sunny eat-in kitchen with lots of space; others prefer a den or family room with lots of room for large sofas and a fireplace.
Will the floor plan of your new home plan accommodate your existing or new furniture arrangements and furniture styles? When planning room sizes, carefully consider the seating areas and how furniture placement will affect the overall feel of the room. Do you want two separate seating areas or one larger conversation area? How will the room flow into other rooms?
