What Women Want in Home Designs

When it comes to building a home and selecting a house plan it is no surprise that women are the primary purchasers of house plans. Nobody understands that better, than our female designers, who have put together a list of “must have” features a house plan needs in order to accommodate the many needs and sensibilities women have through all stages in their home life – wife, mother and grandmother. All of their homes have been designed to reduce stress, facilitate entertaining and promote family time. Women look for house plans that include mud rooms, lots of storage and flexible spaces, gourmet kitchens, outdoor living area and master suites with spa baths and sitting rooms.

    I was delighted to see your article “What Women Want in Home Designs.” We will soon be calling on an architect to help us plan our home and the ideas you mentioned in the article agree with what I’ve been telling my husband. In addition to those mentioned, we will also have drawers in the kitchen as opposed to lower cabinets. They’re much easier to get to the back without having to stand on one’s head! In Texas we must store things in the house because the heat in the attic or garage breaks down plastics, papers and other materials. The house we build will have a large utility room with a lot of storage as well as w/d, utility sink and long counter for crafts, sorting recyclables and folding clothes.
    I hadn’t thought about the space to set groceries near the pantry, but I know the driveway or garage where I unload my car will be closer to the kitchen than it is now!
    Thanks again for your articles.
