Whether you are thinking about buying an old house or a new house, it helps to have a picture of the house you want to live in first. Because every human is unique it isn’t unreasonable to assume that we’re all going to have our own ideas about what we want from our homes. Take some time to think about it, as you will surely spend a lot of time living in it. In this article we will discuss a few ideas and methods to get you on the path to your own blueprint.
This might be the easiest and the most complicated aspect of your future home planning. Start simple, how many bedrooms, bathrooms and living areas are you after? Would you like a garage and or a swimming pool? One technique for planning is to assemble the pieces of your house as scaled paper cut-outs on a table and then imagine how they should effectively fit together into your future house. Before you get too committed to this approach it can also be useful to look at floorplans of architecturally designed houses to see how the professionals tackle the problem and then tweaking your design or theirs to find an effective middle ground.
You can also play with 3D drawing programs to have a go at bringing your dream home into virtual reality.
What do you want in your abode? A two person shower? A walk-in butler’s pantry? An expansive kitchen and external barbeque centred living arrangement? Will you build a pool house or have an indoor spa bath? Consider all of this very carefully and definitely consider visiting as many display homes as you can because it is easier to build things to specification first time. Renovations and modifications after the fact can be complicated and expensive. Plan for the future and design your house around the people who will live in it and the activities they enjoy.
In the same vein as amenities, security infrastructure is most easily installed during the construction of your home. Cameras, motion sensors and automatic lighting can all have a role to play in keeping your house safe from burglars and criminals. Additionally consider privacy concerns, such as roller shutters, fencing, curtains and tinted windows.
