When you’re looking to buy a brand new home, you probably have ideas about the neighborhood, lot size, number of rooms, square footage, layout, and other amenities. After all, custom-built home is a dream for many homeowners!
It’s all too easy to go wild when it comes to building your custom home. Unfortunately, you can quickly exceed your budget and extend your building schedule if you don’t go in with a plan. Like any project, you need to strategize to streamline the process.
So, what should you concentrate on while making a wish list for your custom home? Below, we’ll cover some of the most important components that should appear on your wish list.
A Functional Layout
You might have some zany ideas such as installing hidden passages or having a wide-open floor plan, but it is important to spend some time thinking about how well the layout of your home will function with your lifestyle.
If you have young kids or you love to entertain, an open concept for the kitchen, dining, and living room might make sense as it offers unbroken sightlines.
If you’re one of the many people who now find themselves working remotely, however, you might also want separate spaces that are set aside to be a home office or an area where kids can do homework and play independently.
A functional layout is perhaps the most important part of any custom home construction project.
Exterior and Interior Finishes
Finishing materials imbue your home with personality, but all of the details can be overwhelming. The best place to begin is by perusing interior design magazines and websites to compose an idea board.
With strong visuals, you and your contractor can narrow down your preferred design styles and materials in order to create a cohesive plan that perfectly suits your style sensibilities.
