What Is Woman Centric

What is a Women Centric home plan? - Live Well Custom Homes

new homes for sale livabilty floor plan

A Woman Centric Home Plan has been designed for the way women actually live in their home.

After five years of market research, surveys and focus groups, we have implemented the advice and suggestions of women to give them the plans they really want. Storage is plentiful, relaxation areas are seamlessly integrated, places to entertain both formally and casually are available and much consideration is given to rooms that can be flexible as your family’s needs change.

We have recently added the Finally About Me program where Woman-Centric floor plans are created based on your unique personality.

These plans are easy to visualize with our exclusive liveability at a Glance™ color key.

Liveability at a Glance™

Turning the dream of building a home into reality can be a daunting challenge, with thousands of decisions along the way.

Choosing a plan can be intimidating because it’s often difficult to visualize the finished home and how it will live. To make it easier, Design Basics has created a new way to present floor plans to help you narrow the search for a design that fits your personal lifestyle and needs.

Each floor plan in this plan book is shown in a conventional layout and a color-coded version that highlights four different categories especially important to women:

  • Entertaining (Yellow)
  • De-Stressing (Blue)
  • Storing (Orange)
  • Flexible Living (Green)
  • View the Personality Boards.

    Entertaining

    Yellow areas encompass:

    • Formal rooms for entertaining
    • Informal, open living spaces
    • Outdoor “rooms”
    • Kitchens that encourage guests to gather around a snack bar
    • Rooms for media related get-togethers
      (watching movies or sports events)

    • Areas Ideal for groups playing cards or board games

    De-stressing

    If you’re looking for ways to de-stress your life, you’ll appreciate homes with a lot of blue spaces. Some blue areas offer relaxation, such as:

    • Personal getaways
    • A privately located master suite
    • A walk-in shower or whirlpool
    • A quiet porch or craft area

    Others provide unusual organizational features such as:

    • Split vanities
    • Mudrooms
    • Drop zones that keep keys, brief-cases, umbrellas, cell phones and lap tops in one convenient spot

    Storing

    If you never have enough storage, you’ll be drawn to homes with more orange areas, that highlight:

    • Extra storage capacity in the garage or laundry room
    • Rear foyer storage
    • Generous kitchen pantries and linen closets
    • Over-sized bedroom closets
    • Additional unfinished areas in the basement or on the upper level

    Flexible living

    Green areas designate rooms that offer flexible living spaces that can adapt to unique situations

    • Rooms that can be combined to create in-law-suites
    • Home offices
      (occasionally even his and her offices)

    • Bedroom/bath arrangements that work well for blended families
    • Music rooms
    • Home school rooms
    • Craft or gardening centers
    • Offices that can become dining rooms
    • Dens that become guest rooms
