Planning your dream home gives you the perfect opportunity to get everything you want all in one house. You won’t have to compromise on aspects of the home, renovate to get what you’re looking for, or promise yourself that you can get what you really want at a later time. Planning your dream home from scratch is your chance to get everything you want, whether cozy or luxurious – the sky is the limit. When planning your dream home, here are some tips you’ll need to get it just right!
- Research, research, research! Use the internet, library, architecture magazines, or anything else you can get your hands on to find the style you want for your dream home. Take a drive around to see homes that reflect your personal style and photograph architectural features that make the list for your home. Ask other homeowners about their personal experiences with design features and then mix and match all of your information to get the house you really want.
- Design the outside appearance of your dream home. This may be the easiest step in the whole process of planning your dream home. Determine what architectural features you want the outside of your home to have first, and then you can move onto the inside plans that fit into the design of the exterior you’ve created.
- Think about what your want your interior floor plans to look like. Do you want an abundance of storage? Large bathrooms? En-suites? How about an indoor slide or pool? Sketch a preliminary plan and determine how large you want certain rooms to be. When you meet with one of our custom builders, you can talk about all of your design ideas.
- Don’t forget about extensions for your home, including garages, a guest house, a pool, or a large backyard. All of these things can add to the luxury of your dream home, as well as provide much added storage and space for entertaining.
