One thing that is often overlooked when creating a floor plan is window placement. I did a good job with windows when I created my own floor plan; however, I did make some ‘goofs’. Below I share the 4 rooms I wish I had added windows to when building my home. You can learn from my ‘regrets’:).
I’ve said this in previous blog posts, but I SO wish I had a window in my laundry room. I spend quite a bit of time in this room and I hate that there is no natural light :(.
I considered adding a window recently but then realized it wasn’t possible because the walls are all surrounded by other areas (i.e. my garage, my pantry, and my kitchen).
I have a combo mudroom/laundry room (which I won’t do in my future home), so, obviously, I don’t have a window in my mudroom either. I regret not adding a window in here.
I know that natural light is definitely not needed in a walk-in pantry, but pantries sure do look more beautiful with a window!
My FAV pantry (Life on Virginia Street) happens to be laid out exactly like my own pantry.
Technically I could probably add a window in here, but the window would look into our screened-in porch. It’s doable and maybe we’ll do it in the future.
Ugh … I have NO CLUE why I didn’t opt for adding a window to my master closet. I think I was worried about taking up precious hanging space, but we could have easily added some high transom windows above the closet system.
There you have it … you now know the 4 rooms I wish I added windows to when building my home. Learn from my ‘mistakes’ and add windows to these rooms!
