It might seem obvious that a floor plan is needed to evaluate a space since Feng Shui deals with how people are affected by the architecture. And yet, many Feng Shui practitioners try to wing it and advise clients without a drawn floor plan to refer to. Firstly, we need to have a to-scale floor plan sketch in order to accurately divide up the areas into directional zones. We have mathematical rules about how to divide up the spaces. Since we use elements strategically in classical Feng Shui, it should be unthinkable to risk placing an element in the wrong area. And yet, some schools rely heavily on \"intention\" and cultural placebos to modify spaces. I would agree that if this were a practitioner’s only source of recommendations, that the precise placement of them may not be their concern. But in classical Xuan Kong Flying Star School, we are attempting to change the magnetic field of certain areas, so the boundaries of each area have to be recognized. As an example, if you intend to place water in the east sector of a house, you need to make sure it is not actually in the Northeast or the Southeast. In the same way that an acupuncturist does not place needles randomly anywhere on the body, we have to know the correct locations for placing such elements as water, wood, fire, earth or metal.
Then again, you may look at various new home floor plans and be able to customize your own. It is your home and you’re going to spend a lot of money on it, so it is only right that you can customize it the way you want it. Why would you want it any other way? It isn’t like you are buying a home that is already built and has been established for years. You are being given the opportunity to build your home from scratch and make it everything that you need it to be. You shouldn’t expect anything less. You can contact a company that has new home floor plans already drawn up for you to purchase. Basically what you are doing is buying the rights to them since the floor plans are their ideas. It may be somewhat pricey, but can be more affordable than having customized plans drawn up.
The same goes for the number of bathrooms that will be suitable for your home. Try to plan for at least two people to share each bathroom, and more can share if the bathroom is in an easily accessible part of the home. Reserve the master suite for the homeowner, and use the guest bathroom for other members of the family. Young children can easily share bathroom space, up to three or four children, without any serious issues developing until the teen years. Know the terminology that applies to your starter home. Do you know the difference between an eat-in kitchen and formal dining room? This is the type of information that can keep you from wasting time and effort as you search for the ideal floor plan for a starter home. Learn the names for amenities that are important to your family and make sure that the home you choose meets those needs.
Hardwood floors remain popular even now in many houses in the West. You will get plenty of varieties like oak, pinewood, maple wood in the hardwood type each having its own pros and cons. But, it will come for long years without costing you anything over the maintenance cost. Porcelain floors are known for its endurance and rigidity which is available at moderate cost in great designs. Some people believe that, porcelain floors are stronger than hardwood flooring and many contractors recommend for home renovation and improvement plans.
Your starter home is often your first step toward financial security because whether you stay in the home for many years and renovate it to meet your needs or roll over its equity into a larger home in the future.
