by Walter Adams Green Home Design
With growing urban population, high property costs and also a desire for a shorter commute all combine for creating a strong interest in narrow lot house plans. There are house plans for narrow lots can definitely feel spacious and comfortable, especially if you clearly follow the important design tips that are listed below.

You should always add a sunroom or a fully covered patio. Adding a covered outdoor area tends to boost your livable space even without exceeding the site boundaries.

Vertical building

As the great exponential growth rate of the world’s human population continues, smart city planners are indeed favouring height over sprawl. In condominium skyscraper, higher urban density is paired with comfortable living arrangements.

Similarly, if you wish to enhance the space in your narrow house plans, favour designs that can make creative use of multiple stories. For instance, an architect designing plan for those of narrow lots may indeed choose to locate a den and also garage on the ground level. There are main doors at the top of a set of stairs would then lead to the second story, consisting of a great room complete with kitchen and living area. 

You should then carefully place your garage. For those of architects, the garage emerged as a major challenge for creating those of beautiful house plans. Garages are indeed enormous and also unsightly. Your garage will then definitely such up all of your prime space if it is not fully located. One important way of adding a garage to narrow house plans mainly for locating the car park in the rea, accessible through an alleyway. Finally, you will be able to keep a ground level garage but also can relocate your main living area to the second floor.

Add interior windows

Does your kitchen in narrow home plan feel cut off from your dining area? If so, you can easily cut out a great selection of the dividing wall to create a perfect illusion of some added space. Any important space will seem larger if you add more light through interior windows. In order to keep your rooms private, you should then fill interior windows with glass blocks.

You should then remove your unnecessary walls. Those of rooms with four walls are unwise in narrow lot home plans. For instance, there are many house plans for narrow lots don’t have certain walls between the dining room, kitchen and living room.

Enhancing long sight lines

It is something that may seem counterintuitive to purposely accentuate the long, stacked feeling of narrow home plans.
