Once you have made the decision that your best bet is to build a custom home rather than buy and remodel an existing house, it opens the door to various exciting choices. You get to pick the property, the layout, the exterior aesthetic, the interior design, and so much more. You get to create your dream home from the ground up so that it will meet your needs to each last detail. The process can be a tad daunting, but this is where Cedar Square Homes comes into play. Read on for a few tips for designing your dream custom home!
Plan for The Long-Term
It is important to design a home that meets your needs for the present, but it is just as important that it will still meet your needs in 10 to 30 years. Having extra bedrooms now might not seem important, but if you add children to your family down the line or have aging parents move in with you, the extra space will come in handy. If you or any other family members of yours need to age in place, leave the sunken living room and small hallways out of your custom home design. Our builders at Cedar Square Homes can help you plan out this aspect of the custom home building process.
Remember How Housing Trends Age
The incredibly popular trends of today will not always age well, remember shag carpeting? It is always a good idea to be safe and go with classic home designs that will never go out of style. If you’re unsure about which design or plans to pick, we can help you out with every step.
Design a Livable Main Floor Area
A lot of people will go and design their homes with the expectation that the bedrooms will all be upstairs. That is fine, but make sure your main floor has a full-sized bathroom along with a room that would be converted into a bedroom if need be. You always want to make sure your main floor has plenty of space for your family since this will primarily be where most activities take place.
Opt For Easy-To-Use Fixtures
While picking fixtures, opt for those that are simple to use for any level of ability so that as you age, you won’t have to worry about it. This includes lever door handles, D-shaped drawer pulls, paddle faucets, and walk-in showers too.
Have Fun with Aesthetics
One last handy suggestion we have for you is to have fun during the custom home building process. This is where aesthetics come into play. Pick one that works best for you. Then ask our team to implement it. We will do the best we can to create it for you. Different styles have different types of costs, so make sure they will fit into your budget. Minimalist and industrial aesthetics are a bit cheaper to pull off, while bohemian styles cost a bit more. This is your custom home, so you decide how you want it to look!
