When it comes to building a new custom home, one of the biggest benefits is the ability to personalize your new home to accommodate your wants and needs based on the selection of features added during the building process. While deciding which features you want in your new custom home can be fun and exciting, it can also be challenging, overwhelming, and time-consuming with so many options available. Here are two helpful tips for choosing features to include in your new custom home.
Needs Vs. Wants
When you’re building your dream home, there may be many designs and features that you want to include. However, it’s important to focus on your needs before your wants. Focusing on your needs is key in ensuring your home has the necessary features to accommodate your current and future lifestyle and that you remain within your set budget and building timeline. For instance, if you plan on having kids in the near future and space and storage are one of your needs, you probably want to include features such as a mudroom, custom cabinets, a walk-in pantry, a multi-functional kitchen, spare bedrooms, or a larger living room area in your new home instead of things you want like a playroom or home theatre. After including features that accommodate your needs, it’s ideal to consider the features you want, allowing you to personalize your new home and add features that support your activities, hobbies, and entertaining style.
Establish a Budget
Establishing a budget is necessary when performing any major construction project, such as a home remodel or new home build. A budget helps ensure that you don’t spend beyond your means during the building process, allowing you to set realistic expectations and goals for yourself and your builder. For instance, having a set budget allows you to make smart decisions regarding your selections for your new home build, such as building materials, features, designs, appliances, and much more.
