Top 10 Desirable Floor Plan Characteristics

August 21, 2023

In recent years, there has been a significant shift in how homes are designed and structured, reflecting homeowners' evolving lifestyle needs and preferences. Today, more emphasis is placed on open layouts, multi-functional spaces, and seamless integration between indoor and outdoor areas. 

Modern floor plans are all about creating a harmonious flow, maximizing natural light, and providing the perfect canvas for personalization. Legacy Homes offers 10 staple floor plan characteristics in all of our builds that prioritize modern living.

1. Open Concept Floor Plans

Enjoy spacious, open rooms where you need it most. Families spend most of their time in the living room, kitchen, and breakfast nook. So, we’ve dedicated more square footage to these rooms in all of our builds. 

2. Expanded Kitchen Islands

If the kitchen is the heart of the home, then the kitchen island creates flow for the heart to function. Modern floor plans boast expansive, well-designed islands with ample counter space for gathering, food prep, or working.

3. Direct Connect Laundry™

Our trademarked Direct Connect Laundry™ system is in every Legacy-built home. This system allows direct access to the laundry room through the master bedroom closet, connecting to the garage through a laundry shute. 

4. Integrated Family Rooms

Playing into the idea of open floor plans, an integrated family room is one well-loved characteristic of a modern home. Imagine relaxing on the couch, chatting with family in the kitchen and breakfast room with clear visual access. 

5. Casual Living Areas

Long gone are formal, tight living areas. Our homes have comfortable, casual living layouts that are low maintenance and open. 

6. Flex Rooms

A flex room — or bonus room — offers added square footage with endless possibilities for use, whether it be an extra guest room or office. 

7. Built-in Drop Zones

Families will love our built-in drop zones. Legacy Homes offers three options: desk, cubby, or desk and cubby combo. Drop zones are essential for organizing jackets, shoes, and daily essentials.

8. Spa-like Master Baths

Our spa-like master bathrooms include a large soaking tub, glass shower, double vanity, and plenty of cabinet storage.

9. Large Windows

It wouldn’t be a modern floor plan without large windows and natural light. Legacy-built homes use windows generously to bring the space to life.

10. Ample Storage Space

Imagine never worrying about storage space thanks to a large kitchen pantry and huge closets.
