Bathrooms should be close to bedrooms. Indoor living next to outdoor living areas Other related rooms close to each other. High use routes should be short and simple. Closed floor plans separate rooms

Open floor plans have less walls, save on cost of building materials, and home feels more spacious Work Triangle Is the route from the center of the sink, to the center of the stove to the center of the refrigerator and back to the sink. Smaller work triangles will

save steps. For safety reasons there should be no cross traffic. Cross traffic can cause spills and other accidents. Draw this in on your floor plan Other Aspects of Good Work Circulation Easy access to

the basement, garage and storage areas. Clothes care center in a convenient location. Ask yourself these Questions Can the cook prepare a meal without

worrying about constantly walking into someone going by? If people can eat in their rooms or living areas, can they get there without leaving a trail through the entire house? If you spend a lot of time grilling outside on the patio, is it convenient to the inside food prep area? Do you have to walk through to the other end of the house to reach the outdoor grill?

Can you bring the groceries right in from the outside without having to go through the living room? Service Entrance Service entrances should be located near the kitchen and basement stairs. Guest Circulation Entry, living, dining, powder room or bath not in

private areas of the home, porches, patios, entertainment rooms. Ask Yourself How to guests travel to the living room when you are entertaining? Do they have to go through private areas of your home?
