If you are in the market for a new small place and have started looking at floor plans, there are a few important things you should consider.
Take the above small space - the square footage was not listed, but it's tiny, agree? Now picture yourself coming in in the winter, let's say, with your boots and large puffy coat... you will be coming straight into the kitchen. No foyer to speak of. Can you do this? Can you downsize your wardrobe enough to allow that one tiny closet to hold your winter coat as well as all your other clothes? Where will you put your friend's coat when he or she comes over?
this one to convert your 2D to 3D. But still be mindful of the furnishings and how it shows it all fits. Also remember to consider what you already own, the size of bed you prefer, and any other furnishings you hold dear and want to keep.
It's nice to buy new and have all the fun choices of finishes, but remember to really visualize not only how your furniture might fit, but how you like to live. Realize that the floor plans may not be scaled correctly, and if there are models to walk through, go there with your measuring tape - they often make the models slightly bigger than what they offer you.
If you remember to think carefully about your small space living, you won't be disappointed. Just take note that some builders do use the above strategies and that you should be aware.
**Not all builders use the above tactics of course, but it's good to be mindful.
