Most Important Features to Consider When Planning a House Design

Building your home can be an overwhelming, but incredibly rewarding experience and it's important to think about the features of your house before it's too late. Noree Henderson, VP of sales and design at JayMarc Homes, goes through essential aspects of a home that you won't want to forget!

Firstly, you’ll want to consider fitting all of the necessary spaces into your floor plan and make a few flexible spaces for multiple uses.  For example,

  • Expanded garage
  • Higher ceilings
  • Main floor guest suite w/ensuite
  • Mud Room
  • Walk-in Pantry
  • Powder Room
  • Home Office
  • Room dividing to open or close spaces for multiple purposes
  • Outdoor kitchen
  • Indoor/Outdoor connection for entertaining spaces

You will also want to plan for things that are more difficult to add later like:

  • Central Vacuum System
  • Wiring for automated shades
  • Extra outlets for specific uses like bidet toilet, power to charge devices inside drawers
  • Electric Vehicle Charger
  • Built-in Sprinkler System
  • Hot/cold hose bib

Also consider Convenience/Organizing Items like:
