First floor plan - opinions please
We are knocking down a ranch and turning it into a colonial .... pretty much set with the second floor plan but wanted to show our first floor plan for comments and opinions .....
The existing home is the dashed line through the kitchen.
The kitchen has been revised, just have not incorporated it into the plan as of yet. Sink will be by the window where the range is drawn; pantry size reduced, range will be on wall with fridge and wall oven. We will have a sink in the center island as well.
The guest room, not a full tub, will do a shower only.
1) Family room is long and narrow - over an existing basement for an addition, don't want to/can't extend the foundation. Was thinking about losing some windows and putting built ins around fireplace for TV etc. Also thinking of built ins by windows, can put cushions on top, seating areas with storage underneath. Thoughts on how to best utilize family room would be appreciated!
2) Since its a relatively open plan, right now thinking of hardwood throughout entire first floor. Would like a marble/tile entry foyer, but afraid it will not look good going from tile to wood. Almost definitely going for wood in the kitchen.
Any ideas would be appreciated. Want the first floor to be open, focal point the kitchen...
