Flex Room Options & Benefits

Categories: Uncategorized | Posted: April 14, 2015

Flex Rooms Change to Suit Buyers’ Needs

Flex Rooms offer several different ways to fit your lifestyle and are very popular with today’s homebuyers!

The chief benefit of a flex room is that the space is built in the way that best fits the buyer’s needs. It provides the ultimate flexibility in how they want to use their home.

A flex room isn’t just about rearranging furniture, but involves structural modifications when the home is built to make the space more useful for the buyer’s needs.

If you were making a flex space into a study, we would put French doors up and add hardwood floors. If you were making it a living area, we would leave it as a cased opening. If you were making it a dining room we would add wainscoting, hardwoods and a chandelier. When you’re building it, you’re able to personalize it based on what your needs are.

Some flex rooms can actually make a home larger, as well as more functional.

You may be looking at a floor plan that has a 3 car garage, but converting that third garage into a hobby/game room or bedroom will make it larger because you are making that livable space.

If you enjoy entertaining a formal dining area could have an attached butlers pantry that leads into a gourmet kitchen. An office is another option it is be the perfect place to work from home or even be used as a place for kids to do their homework.

At Legacy Homes we offer the flex room as the standard configuration and we give other configurations as upgrades.

Buyers might wonder whether they can change a flex room’s configuration after they move into their new home. The answer is yes, but remodeling later could be more costly than the our upgrade.

The bottom line is that flex rooms offer buyers options that might not be found in a resale home.

The great thing about building a new home is that you are able to personalize it to your specific needs. It will increase the value and make it more comfortable for you.

Let us at Legacy Homes know what you want in your flex room and we will work to make it happen!

5 Benefits of Open Floor Plans

Categories: Floorplan | Posted: March 11, 2015

Legacy Homes are built and designed for the way you live. We call them EASYLIVING™ plans. The plans are functional, spacious, and comfortable while maintaining a sense of beauty and craftsmanship.

Here are the top five benefits of open concept floor plans:

1. Enjoy a great entertaining space. Even if it’s just your immediate family, you’ll love the convenience of this main gathering space. One person can be in the kitchen preparing a meal and the rest of the family can be in the living room watching tv or playing a game and you will all be connected. When you entertain guests, the open plan allows easy flow and prevents overcrowding in one area.

2. Allows the flow of natural light. Removing walls between segregated rooms invites natural light to travel and connects your indoor spaces with the outdoors. Adding a window in the kitchen or living area can provide views into your backyard and brighten up all adjacent spaces.

3. The EASYLIVING™ open floor plans Create uninterrupted lines of sight. This means you can still see the game, watch the grandkids, or simply have clear views into all living spaces.

4. Makes your home feel larger. With walls separating every room, especially kitchens, great rooms, and dining rooms the house can seem small. When you eliminate the walls so that all of these rooms flow, it seems much larger and a lot more open.

5. Your kitchen becomes the focal point. Whether it’s intended or not, the kitchen is where everyone gathers. In an open concept floor plan your kitchen layout can be customized to maximize its place in the spotlight.

Legacy Homes designs all of our homes with EASYLIVING™ plans with YOU in mind, come see for yourself!
