Grand Designs for Small House Floor Plans: A Perfect Guide for Homeowners

There has always been a demand for small houses. There are many reasons why people prefer to buy small homes with beautiful designs. The point is not that small houses are cost-effective compared to big-sized mansions and villas, but we have also built and designed many small houses with super gorgeous designs.

The debate could be there that small houses cannot be designed in a good way or small houses cannot look good when you see them from the outside. We do not boast about this debate, but with our years of experience, we can say that if you have the right team of architects and designers— you can build a beautiful house with a functional yet innovative floor plan. That will, of course, look good as well as give you the feeling of owning a big house. 

It all depends on how you use and optimize your space. This can be said that a compact house with a functional and symmetrical floor plan is going to fill you with pride. It’s like a small package that comes with a lot of benefits. 

Well, in today’s blog post, we are going to discuss how you can build a grand design with a small size of land size. Also, we will uncover some designs for you that you can opt for yourself. 

What is a floor plan?

A floor plan is a drawing of a house that is going to be built in the future. It can be said that a floor plan drawing shows how a house will look when it has been built before it is actually built. A site plan, also known as a floor plan, is a two-dimensional overview of a structure that helps designers, architects and homeowners plan house interiors. The drawing shows the floor plan in detail, including the dimensions and locations of each room, hallways, stairs, and other features of the house.

A floor plan is currently the need of the hour if you want to use the space effectively and see the whole picture as well. Professionals in the architectural and construction field – architects, designers, and real estate developers – show these drawings to their clients or homeowners and tell them how they plan to build their homes.

If you plan to build your own house, you must have a proper floor plan. To put it simply, with floor plan drawings that your designer will provide you with, you can be sure how much space will be used for the bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen. It means that in the drawings, you can see every single detail of your house —even the location of each element.

The importance of small houses

For many homeowners out there, when the idea of a “small house” is presented, they think that a small house will be a tight and cluttered house where they will not get enough floor space to move or feel comfortable. In reality, however, even the simplest living spaces can make you feel open, spacious, and stylish when it is designed with creativity and innovation. 

The rise of small house floor plans has pushed the boundaries of functionality and design, breaking down dimensional limitations and offering functionality as well as style.

When it comes to residential architecture, the concept of “less is more” has a completely different meaning. In today’s time, urban and modern living spaces are taking the market high. And minimalistic designs are not so popular among the high-class society. 

So, for the architectural industry, the challenge is to design small homes that are functional and beautiful at the same time. This is because to break the stereotype thinking that small houses cannot be beautiful when it comes to their design.

But now the times have changed. And people started choosing small houses with some really cool floor plans. 

Things to keep in mind while designing the interior and exterior 

The front elevation is important

The front elevation is pretty important when designing a small house to make it look better and to design a grand floor plan. The front of the house creates the first impression and can make a small house appear larger and more appealing —if the exterior of the house is designed in a good way. We put in a considerable amount of time while designing the front elevation. Because at the end of the day, it creates we’ve to design a grand house that reveals the modest size of the building.

Multi-storey layout

If you have, let’s say, 20 feet by 40 feet land size, you can then opt for a multi-storey house. When you build your home vertically, you can maximize your land area. The ground floor can be used for the living room, kitchen and dining area. On the other hand, the second and third floors can be used for bedrooms and bathrooms, for example. With a carefully planned design, a two-story home can provide you with plenty of living space while giving you a relaxing and welcoming feel.

Efficient floor plan

A good floor plan is the key to designing a successful small house. We at NakshaDekho also keep in mind the open-concept layouts that naturally blend living areas. With this idea, we try to create an illusion of flow and spaciousness in the house. Moreover, we pay close attention to placing windows and doors, which ultimately enhance the house design. Apart from that, adding natural lighting options to the house design can also make a space feel larger than it is.

Multi-purpose spaces

In a small house design, every square foot is very important, and we know how it can be used in the overall design. When designing small houses with grand designs, we make sure to create multi-functional rooms. For example, a guest bedroom can be used for the home office, or you can also use it for any other casual things. 

Compact and space-saving items

When designing a small house with the idea of grand design, there are lots of things to consider. To save space, we sometimes ask clients to go with European-style kitchens. Because these types of kitchens are perfect for smart storage solutions and are a popular choice for small houses. On the other hand, space-saving appliances in the house, pull-out drawers, and multi-use furniture can be a wise choice for small houses. 

The final say 

The right architects and designers can turn a small house plan into a unique design that provides functionality, style and looks. No matter if you have a small plot, by choosing smart floor plans, you can still build a beautiful house that is spacious and efficient. 

At NakshaDekho, we know how challenging it can be to create a grand living experience in a small space. However, with our team of expert architects and designers, we are good at using the space effectively and, most importantly, changing the small plot into a functional and beautiful home.
