The ’standard’ floor plans offered should be varied enough to appeal to a wide range of clients, from large families to retired couples and everyone in between. If, however, your needs are different to most, or there is a special feature you have always dreamed about including in your dream home, then a custom flooring is the right option for you. If you plan on creating original floor plans to submit to your house builder, you should always work with a professional architect to ensure that drawings you use are produced to an accurate scale and can be easily translated into a finished product.
The ranch house floor plan is a shining example of the American Dream in its purest form. It was then, and remains today, the most widely built housing style ever seen in America. This house plan style had its heyday from 1949 to 1965 for several reasons. Prevailing loan programs of the day made getting a home loan with no money down easier than it ever had been in previous years. Soldiers returning from World War II wanted to settle down and begin raising families. With the demand for homes at an all time high, the simple form and lack of detail made the ranch house floor plan much faster to build than a stately Tudor style home. Formal foyers and spiral staircases were discarded and replaced by level entries and single story plans.
The availability and increasing popularity of the automobile also defined the heyday of the ranch house floor plan. For the first time, the garage was moved to the front of the home. This was the first generation of home owners to have a highly prized freedom and mobility to work and shop in the city and then retreat to the suburbs to live. Because the suburbs removed the need to build houses close together, lots became increasingly larger and the square footage of the average house floor plan expanded accordingly. Ranch house floor plans generally accentuated the width of the lot.
They are great for rustic decorating when paired with rustic iron or timber furniture. Most of them are multi colored in a seemingly haphazard fashion, others are very uniform in pattern. Braided rugs are great for all areas and surfaces and are offered in assorted colors, styles and sizes. Braided rugs are traditionally found in oval shapes, but other shapes are available including square, rectangle and true circle. Long runners are also available. They’re very thick and thus very soft and cushiony under your feet. If the rug is made of natural fibers it may feel softer although those are generally more expensive also. The great news is that these rugs are tough. Their multi colored patterns hide a lot of wear and as long as you get one reasonably made it will last you a long time.
Sometimes only small adjustments need to be made, a mere few feet, to move a desk from a negative zone to a positive zone, but we can’t know that without an accurate floor plan. Another piece of practical advice I routinely give clients are the yearly zones to be wary of in terms of remodeling or accidents. For example, in the year 2012, the direction of southeast will be very accident-prone. If I have a client who wants to remodel their kitchen in that location and that year, we might consider postponing it or doing some specific counter-measures to diffuse the volatility of that area. But if we aren’t working with an accurate floor plan, then we could misinterpret where a directional zone is within a house. All of these theories apply to commercial spaces as well.
