Planning a new home build is extremely exciting because you can incorporate all the features you’ve ever dreamed of, however; this could also make the process overwhelming. If you’re just starting a new home build project—or thinking about designing your dream home—keep these design tips in mind.
Design for Your Specific Needs
Think about where you’re living now and what frustrations you encounter. For example, if you’re tall, you might struggle with the height of sinks and counters. When designing your new home, you can increase the height of vanities and islands so that you’re more comfortable living in your space.
Plan for the Future
As you’re designing your home now, it’s important to think about how you’ll use the space in the future. Will you need extra bedrooms for a growing family or an in-law suite for aging parents? Would a master bedroom on the main floor be helpful in a two-story home or would a bungalow be better suited? By designing for current and future needs, you can help ensure that you’re building a forever home.
Think About Luxury Amenities
There are some luxury amenities you could easily add in the future, but others make more sense to install during the initial construction. A heated floor for instance, is much easier—and cost effective—to put in during the build phase than trying to add at a later date. It’s important to talk through all the amenities that you want in your home and decide which ones should be included and which can be added later.
Working with an experienced custom home builder can help guide you through the whole process and answer any questions you may have.
