10 ways the Shea SpaceBuilder can help you build your home

by Shea Homes Arizona on March 30, 2012

There are a lot of things to consider when laying out your home furnishings.  Will the couch fit in that corner?  Do we need another bookshelf for that wall?  Would this room work for the pool table?  Inevitably, you’ll probably change your mind about the layout at least a few times before settling on one that works for you and your family. 

If you’re thinking about purchasing a home or if you’re already in the process of building your Shea Home, why not get a head start on planning your layout using the Shea Homes SpaceBuilder? With the ability to visualize key features of your floor plan as well as place and modify furniture, fixtures and other aspects of the home, it’s sure to help prevent several hours of furniture shuffling. 

To use the SpaceBuilder, just visit www.SheaHomes.com/newhomes/phoenix and select the community and floorplan you want to explore. Then click on the green, right hand icon that says “Explore this Floorplan.” 

Here are ten things to try while you’re there: 

1)      Change the home’s features by clicking “Explore” at the top. Many floorplans have optional balconies, additional bathrooms or hobby room modifications.

2)      “Flip” the floorplan to see what it would be like as the reverse layout.

3)      Check to see if the kids’ furniture will fit in their bedrooms. You can even add measurements! Just click “Space Planner” at the top.

4)      Rearrange your living room a few times, without having to actually move furniture.

5)      Take a look at a variety of interior options by clicking “Gallery” on the left-hand side.

6)      Browse included features such as the look of your front door, ceramic tile countertops, etc.

7)      Dream about new furniture and fun home accessories, then check to see if a piece of furniture you would like to buy will fit in the spot you imagine it in.

8)      Are there a few family spaces in the plan you’re looking at? Use SpaceBuilder to help you visualize whether the extra room should be a game room, teen room, exercise room or anything else you can think up!

9)      After you decide where you want everything, save your layout for later or print it out to make moving day easier.

10)   Show off your plans or get feedback from friends and family by sharing your floorplan layout on Facebook and Twitter! 

Better yet, share your floorplans on our Facebook page or tweet it to @SheaHomesAZ. We’d love to hear from you.
