Family Friendly Home Design


New Homes offer more than that “New Home Smell”! They present a more family friendly design for everyday living than resale homes. From open concept floor plans to better storing options, you can find what your growing family is looking for inside a new home in Richmond!

New home builders know that children come with a lot of “accessories” from gaming gear, sports equipment to toys it can be hard to find a place to store it all. Luckily, new home designs provide a lot of storing options like large walk-in closets as well as additional hall storage. They also offer rooms specifically designed for play, because video games, movies, and music can be loud. These “flexible” rooms are usually adjacent to main living areas that can pull double duty. Whether it’s a playroom or a study, you decide!

The Kitchen is the nucleus of any home and it is the key to family friendly living. Most new homes feature large kitchens with homework/computer/charging stations, breakfast nooks, TV hook up, island bars and custom cabinets with lighting. Making the Kitchen more than just for eating.

Another family-friendly feature new homes offer is a mud-room/laundry combo. Some homes offer options that allow for an outside entrance or one that is adjacent to the garage. This is a much better catchall for backpacks, jackets and sports gear than the kitchen table. It is also a great option for animal lovers to dedicate a portion of the space to their favorite 4-legged family member.

New homes in Richmond also offer creative bathroom options like Jack and Jill bathrooms. These are usually shared between two bedrooms. Allowing equally shared but private space with double sinks and double the storage!
