Those who love sunshine and cheerful living spaces should consider house plans that make the most of natural light. These floor plans offer a wide variety of features that help draw natural light indoors illuminating all areas of the home. For instance, The House Plan Shop’s home plan 027H-0086 has plenty of features to brighten the home.
Begin with the transom windows topping both the double door entry and the dining room windows, pulling extra natural light inside brightening the foyer and formal dining space. At the back of the home a trio of windows lines the breakfast area spilling sunshine inside and overflowing into the sunlit family room where double doors flanked with windows open to the rear deck, the ideal place for sunbathing and summertime barbecues. The master bedroom boasts a bay window capturing natural light from multiple angles. And don’t miss the garden tub in the master bath. It is neatly positioned between two sparkling windows creating a soothing atmosphere for a relaxing soak in bathtub.
Beyond this special house plan, there are many other design features that help to make the most of natural light. Consider floor plans with the following elements:
- a side-lighted entry
- an atrium
- glass sliders or folding walls of glass
- a prow with floor to ceiling windows
- a daylight or finished walkout basement
