One of the biggest advantages of building a new home is that you get the opportunity to start from scratch. Your new home design is your chance to construct the perfect blend of style for your family and lifestyle. This process can feel quite draining but also riveting at the same time. A new home design is one of the most important decisions you can make, so ensuring you do your due diligence and ask the necessary questions is imperative to success.
- Does it suit your current lifestyle?
- Is the layout of your design practical for a family?
- Does the house suit your block of land?
These are just a few of a hundred questions you must go through before selecting the necessary plan or even designing one from scratch.
Where are you Building?
Location is one of the first and most important things to take into consideration when designing your new home. The location of your block will have a heavy influence on the type of new home design that you choose. Is the block narrow? Is the block wide? Does the block have an odd shape? When reviewing this with the dimensions, you will be able to make an informed decision on the style of home you build.
Current & Future Family Needs
One of the biggest mistakes that people can make is not designing their new home inline with their future plans to start or grow a family. From things like going for a double story or where the certain bedrooms will be placed, each of these decisions will have major ramifications when you begin to have children.
This can also apply to families designing their new home with small children, have you taken into account when the little ones grow into teenagers and adults? WIll this be the home you stay in forever? If you want to stay in the property long term, make sure you have incorporated design options that can be adapted in years to come, not just the short term.
What’s Your Budget?
What we see a lot of people doing is overlooking properly analysing their budget. As you’re walking through those open homes or going through the designs with your consultant, it’s very easy to get caught up in adding features and upgrading options. Ensure you and/or your partner have sat down and researched your burrowing power and what the MUST needed extras will be.
Setting your budget from the start and not straying too far from it will make the new home design process more beneficial and rewarding.
