Once you have made the call that your best bet is to create your dream custom home instead of buying and remodeling an existing home, it opens the door to all types of exciting choices! You can pick the property, the layout, the floorplan, the exterior design, the interior aesthetic, and much more. You have the ability to build your perfect home from the ground up so that it meets your needs to the smallest detail. The process can be a bit intimidating, but this is where Cedar Square Homes can help. Read on for a few important tips to remember for designing your perfect custom home!
Planning for Long-Term Living
It is crucial to design a custom home that will meet your needs for the present, but it is important that it will also meet your needs in 10 to 30 years. Having additional bedrooms now may not seem important, but if you end up having kids in your family down the line or have parents move in with you at some point, the additional space will come in handy. If you or any other family members has to age in place, leave the sunken living room and tiny hallways out of the custom home design. Our team of builders at Cedar Square Homes can assist you in planning out this aspect of the custom home-building process.
Remember Housing Trends and How They Age
The trendy and popular design choices of today don’t always age well. Shag carpeting was once popular, but not so much today. It is always a smart idea to be safe and go with classic home designs that will not ever go out of style. If you are unsure about which plans or designs to choose, our team can help you through every step.
Design a Livable Primary Floor Area
Plenty of people go and design homes with the expectation that their bedrooms will be upstairs. This is fine, but make sure your main floor has some full-sized bathrooms along with rooms that can be converted into a bedroom if required. You always want to make sure the main floor has a lot of space for your family since this will mostly be where activities occur.
Go with Simple-To-Use Features
While picking your home fixtures, go for something that is simple to use for any level of ability so that as you and your family age, you will not have to worry about it. These include door handles, paddle faucets, hand railings, and showers too.
