A Better Way to Search Home Plans
Type. Square footage. Width.
These are the ways most people search for home plans. It's efficient because it narrows down the number of plans to look at. But that's as far as it goes. Such search "filters" do little to help you find plans most suited to how you want to live in your new home.
What if you could search based on what's most important to you, your lifestyle and your preferences? That would be helpful, perhaps provide a few new insights and save lots of time!
Design Basics introduced Livability At A GlanceŽ using four "lenses" when evaluating a home's "livability." Color coding floorplans to highlight these four areas of livability makes it easier to envision how the home would live.
A NEW DAY
Now you can search home plans by the relative importance of each
lens. Preference indicators have been added to the home plan search options, allowing you to identify how important each of the four aspects- Entertaining, De-stressing, Storing and Flexible Living-are to you!
