I'm new to this forum and seeking some advice on my floor plan. My house is south frontage and backyard is facing north.I would like to move the powder room to next to staircase as shown below. I'm guessing it would make the staircase visible as soon as someone enters the house. Would this be nice?Appreciate any feedback and recommendations on this floor plan.

Just a quick suggestion.
You would do well to swap the position of your kitchen and living.
You have the perfect north aspect for your living across the back of the house. You really waste it putting the kitchen there.
If you swap their positions you still get access to the alfresco from the kitchen for easy entertaining and you then get that beautiful north from the living are.

I agree with chippy regarding the kitchen/ lounge location.
Your lounge room at the front of the house is too small, you'll be better off using this space as the study.
The upstairs bathroom can be reconfigured so you don't walk into the side of your vanity. At the moment access to the sink is partially blocked by the bath.
Also consider adding more windows their for natural light.

Thank you both for your advice. The kitchen splashback would be a glass spashback and also there will be a glass window in WIP. Even so, is it better to swap living and the kitchen?
The problem after swap is that the alfresco entrance would appear somewhat blocked by kitchen island at one side and the couch from the living room side.

I agree with most of the changes people have made, and I can definitely see the reasoning behind switching the media and bedroom. My small bit of advice would be think…
