Traffic Patterns and Floor Plans
By Real Living Premier
(Real Living Premier)
When shopping for a new home, consider traffic patterns along with other factors. A house with ample floor space can feel crowded if the arrangement is awkward. Start the evaluation with the entries. Is there a convenient "service" entry, in addition to the formal entrance?Ideally, sleeping quarters should be accessible without passing through the living or family rooms. You may want the master bedroom separated from the children's or guest rooms. A home office may require privacy and a separate entrance. At least one bath should be accessible to guests without sacrificing privacy.
