  • Opening Intro -

    The building industry has seen many differences in construction design in the last few decades.

    One of these major differences is the use of floor trusses in residential building construction.


Here are four ways that floor trusses are changing the interior design of homes.

More Stable Surface

The use of floor trusses creates a more stable load-bearing surface for homes. This new surface creates the perfect base layer for a variety of interior design needs.

Homeowners are more capable of installing interior walls, heavy fixtures, and other design options without having to worry about whether or not their floor structure can handle the weight.

Allows for More Open Space

When planning the structure of the home, an architect has to take into account various features. Some of these include electrical and plumbing lines.

By installing floor trusses, your architect has more open space they can devote to hiding these lines. When lines can be hidden in these open spaces, they create a cleaner finished look. This makes designing a new home with various new technologies easier than ever before.

They Have Varying Depths

Since floor trusses come pre-constructed from the factory, there are various depths you can purchase them in. This makes framing the flooring in your home very easy to do.

In areas of your home where you’ll need to hide mechanical systems like your heat run, you can opt for larger depths. However, in areas of the room that you don’t need as much space, you can opt for floor trusses that aren’t as deep.

All sizes will provide you with a high amount of structural integrity so you can essentially pick and choose whatever depth you desire for various rooms of your home.

They Require Less Labor to Install

Part of any building project is your budget. When you can save money in one area, you can devote the remaining balance to another area of your build.

When it comes to using floor trusses over traditional floor joists, they cost less. They come pre-constructed and they take less time to install. This means they’ll cost less to have installed by your builder. You can use the extra money that you saved to put towards interior design aspects.

Floor trusses are a newer building material that is taking off like wildfire. Due to their great diversity and easy installation, builders are opting for using them over traditional floor joists. Above are just four of the many benefits of using these floor trusses when it comes to thinking about the interior design of your new home.
