custom homeFind the best floor plan for your brand-new custom home in Myrtle Beach. Consult your custom home builder to determine which option is best for you.

There are three main types of floor plans. These are the traditional, contemporary, and custom plans. The standard floor plan will separate every room with a doorway and walls. Modern floor plans eliminate most of these walls for a much more open floor plan type, like having the living room and kitchen in the same place. Meanwhile, a custom floor plan allows you to make your design with the help of a custom home builder.

Each floor plan has its advantages and disadvantages for your custom home

Traditional Floor Plans

The traditional floor plan is also referred to as closed floor plans. Keep in mind that being closed does not also mean being cramped. It’s because the conventional floor plan has the same amount of space. It’s just that it has more walls. You could walk into nearly any house built at least ten years ago and see this floor plan.

Benefits of Traditional Floor Plans

A range of design options – you could add your design to every room and make it as unique as you want. You could also use different colors, materials, and so on for every space.

Offer a cozier feel – bigger rooms could feel overly spacious if you are just the one in them

More privacy – you could have more space where you can have some peace

Better sound control – by having more walls, there will be more objects sound needs to pass through to go to other areas, therefore, muting it more

Lowering Energy Bills – it’s easier to cool or heat areas with more walls because they offer more insulation

Contemporary Floor Plan

A contemporary floor plan is also referred to as an open-concept design. The modern floor plan provides an open feel that is great for letting people feel together even if they are not in the same room. For instance, the chef will not feel isolated from everybody in the living room since there’s a big opening connecting the rooms.

Benefits of Contemporary Floor Plan

A contemporary floor plan offers accessibility since it will be much easier to move around since there is more space. You will be provided an open line of sight, ideal for families because it is easier to watch your kids. Another benefit is better natural light. Since there are fewer walls, more light will come from the windows, which means you will get to save on your energy bills.

This type of floor plan offers a more modern aesthetic for your custom home in Myrtle Beach. A growing number of consumers prefer an open-concept floor plan. Lastly, an open concept type is rising in popularity, and it will most likely be easier to sell the house once you decide to put it on the market.

Custom Floor Plan

With a custom floor plan, you can work closely with a custom home builder in Myrtle Beach. You can choose the styles, fixtures, rooms, colors, materials, and everything else you want for your custom home.

They could also make it custom without the need to go into that much detail, like selecting a layout and allowing the custom home builder to take care of the rest.

One custom idea that is increasing in popularity has a bigger shower without a door. It could take a bit of getting used to, but you will indeed have fun once you do.
