Designing Floor Plans for Ideal Livability
March 1, 2016
At Ideal Homes we design every floor plan around livability. We strive to build new homes in Oklahoma City that work for how people actually live in them by looking at how our home buyers use their homes and customizing floor plans to fit their needs. We learn what home buyers need by analyzing feedback from several sources. 1. Homeowner surveys. We ask every family in an Ideal home how they live in their home, what they like, and what they would change. 2. Customer requests in the Ideal Homes’ Design Center. When we see a trend, we implement it in future designs. 3. Ideal Homes employees. A large number of our employees are also Ideal homeowners. We get great feedback from inside our own company. One example of feedback we’ve taken directly from our homeowners and applied to our floor plan design is the addition of more flexible space. Through a combination of the avenues above, we learned that many homeowners were using formal dining rooms for home offices, playrooms, craft rooms, music rooms or home gyms. Families were using the extra space to meet their unique needs. We knew our floor plans needed to reflect that. Ideal Homes responded by including more flex space in homes that offered different options for the space and provided plans with more flexible layouts that could meet a variety of needs. New homes in Oklahoma City should reflect how you live. We always encourage feedback. Feel free to visit any of our furnished model homes and give us our thoughts.
