Woman-Centric Home Plans
These home designs showcase innovative design solutions and amenities for increased livability and style, derived from the challenges and feedback women have shared with us. Several of today’s most popular design trends debuted in these plans, any of which can be customized to your specific needs!
Search By LivabilitySelect the level of importance that you place on each area of Livability in a home. For example, if entertaining is most important, followed by storage; then, click the circle under "Most" for Entertaining, and a circle one or two spots to the left of "Most" for Storage. Note: If only one or two lenses are important to you, you don't have to rate all four lenses to get results.
What Is a Woman-Centric Home Plan?
Woman-Centric home plans are designed based on the four primary “lenses” women told us they use when looking at a home in terms of its suitability for her household: Entertaining, De-Stressing, Storing, and Flexibility. This led Design Basics to introduce Livability at a Glance and color-code our floor plans to make it even easier to envision how the home lives.
Through Design Basics Plan Customization Service, we can work together to further tailor your home plan to fit you and your family's needs. Whether you want to enlarge the bedrooms, add innovative storage solutions, or enjoy a larger walk-in shower, we're here to help you create your ideal family home!
Why Are People Choosing Woman-Centric Floor Plans?
With research showing that women are the primary decision makers when it comes to purchasing or building a new home, it’s no surprise that homes designed around women’s preferences should be so popular.
Women tend to consider everyone in the household when making decisions for the home, resulting in floor plan layouts accommodating their entire household’s needs.
