Kid Friendly Floorplans: 3 Homes Designs Ideal For Young Children

Finding a house that will suit your whole family – including its littlest members – is incredibly important. Of course, when you’re looking for a new house, finding something the whole family will love can be a challenge…

If you have young children and you’re in the market for a new home, chances are there are some key features you have your eye on.

And if you’ve been on the hunt for a new home for a while and you’re having no luck finding what you’re looking for, you may be considering the option of building a custom home with the floorplan you and the kids will be happy with.

At Heritage Custom Builders, we can help you make that happen!

Kid Friendly Floorplans for Custom Homes

Looking for some ideas? Here are just a few of our floorplans with kid-friendly features that families love.

The Cottonwood 

The Cottonwood is a single story ranch style home that’s perfect for families, especially those with young children.

What makes the Cottonwood particularly perfect for families with little kids?

Downstairs bedrooms

The cluster of downstairs bedrooms means that parents are never too far away when the kids are tucked in bed. This makes it easy to keep an eye on the kiddos when they’re tucked in while still getting things done around the house.

Single story living

No worries about gates across the stairways or lugging tired kiddos up the stairs every night. Single story makes life with toddling kids much easier.

Open floor plan

With an open floor plan featuring a family room in view of the kitchen and dining areas, the Cottonwood provides ideal space for kids to play while being supervised.

The Cherry Tree 

The Cherry Tree is a single family home with two stories. It’s layout is ideal for families with kids of any age.

What makes the Cherry Tree family-friendly?

Laundry room on the second floor

Doing laundry – especially for an entire family – can be quite an undertaking. With a laundry room on the second floor, you won’t have to worry about schlepping laundry all the way downstairs or to the basement.

All bedrooms upstairs, with entertaining spaces downstairs

It can be challenging to entertain, especially when you have little kids who nap or go to bed early. With upstairs bedrooms and downstairs entertaining spaces, the Cherry Tree makes having kids and hosting guests a breeze.

The Sassafras 

The Sassafras is a 3,200 square foot single story home with two floors. It’s great for young families as well as families with older children.

This floor plan has a few family-friendly design features, including:

Mudroom right off of the garage

When kids are young, and as they get older, having a mudroom is so helpful. It’s a great place to collect shoes, coats, and backpacks – not to mention dirt before the kiddos track it through the rest of the house!

Substantial square footage

This house is big, so you and the kids will have plenty of room whether you want to hang out together, or enjoy some quiet independent time.

Open floorplan

The open floorplan featuring a kitchen that overlooks the dining area and family room is great for keeping an eye on young kids and providing opportunities for family bonding as kids grow up.
