Building a custom home is a very exciting process, as you get see your vision come to life. A custom home comes with many important decisions, including a layout and a floor plan that will work best for you and your family. Continue reading to learn how to break down the difficult decisions and design the perfect home!
Wants vs. Needs
When making any decision, it’s always a good idea to go over your wants and needs. Make a list of everything you need in a home and will not compromise, and then a list of things you would like, but aren’t completely crucial for your home. A good way to do this is to look at the house you live in now and think of things you would keep and things you would change.
You also want to be sure to plan for the future and make sure your home layout will work for you and your family for years to come. If you have a large family or are planning to have children, then a big family room and multiple bedrooms should be on your list of needs. If you like entertaining and plan on hosting dinner parties, an open floor layout from the kitchen to the dining area is another must-have on your list.
Experts advise that custom home builders choose their land as the first step, then proceed by picking out a house plan. However, it’s still important to at least make a list of your wants and needs first, so you know what type of land to look for. Not every floor plan will fit on every piece of land, so having a basic idea of your home plan can help narrow down the land choices.
In addition to size, look for things like views, proximity to neighbors’ property, and how much sunlight your home would get. The landscape, driveways, and sidewalk all become a part of your home, so it’s crucial to look at everything before deciding where to build your new home.
