Modern farmhouse design is a combination of traditional American farmhouse design and minimalistic contemporary style architecture. This house design reflects the needs of contemporary living by giving diverse inside spaces. Ground floor plan is divided in few different zones. Left wing accommodates main living area of open plan kitchen, living room and double story dining area. On the right wing, in the private zone there is master bedroom with large bathroom and open closet. It is situated parallel to the living room to catch the best views of open lot. Between two house wings on the ground floor there is a room suitable for home office or den. All main ground floor spaces are connected to the open outside porch to influence broader outside activities. On the second floor there are two large bedrooms and a bathroom. Open studio space could be used as a home library/hobby room or by adding partition walls there could be fourth bedroom of the house. Second floor also has a balcony which allows to enjoy open lot views from above.
Note: according to International Code Council R304 “Habitable rooms shall not be less than 7 feet in any horizontal dimension.” This is very small for a room — or large for a cage…After having participated in the design of many idea houses for Sunset magazine I think a 10-by-12-foot bedroom is too small. But you may disagree.
Size, width and furniture placement are not the only variables impacting a room’s success. Volume can be just as important. Until recently, most homes were built with 8’ tall ceilings but taller ceilings are growing in popularity. By combining “open plans” where rooms flow seamlessly from one to the next with higher ceilings, smaller plans can be made to feel surprisingly comfortable. Conversely, a large room with a low ceiling will feel cramped despite the ample square footage. Another strategy used to make smaller rooms feel bigger is to include more and larger windows. Consider the placement of windows for view, balanced light, and heat and make sure you understand the size and type of windows proposed.
A good floor plan makes the traffic flow between the major living areas easy and graceful, without creating bottlenecks or dead-end spaces that might trap guests at a party, or make it difficult to get from one part of the house to another. Here are examples of floor plans with flexible circulation.
