Beautiful home design starts with a fabulous floor plan. Arthur Rutenberg Homes offers tips on creating a plan that is functional for every kind of family, from space for entertaining, outdoor living to privacy for homeowners and guests.

Choose a floor plan that fits your lifestyle.  

The layout of rooms, in regards to family size and ages of children, is essential.

Do you entertain often or rarely?

Many floor plans are centered on entertaining and welcoming guests the minute they step through the front door. Or you may opt for a formal living room adjacent to the front door so that guests have a place to sit while leaving the rest of the home private.

How much outdoor living do you wish to have?

Options include a porch, lanai, swimming pool or all the above with a full outdoor kitchen.
