What Size Home is Right For You?


How large of a home do you really need? There are a few factors that will play into your decision.

When you take a look at the home market, it’s clear that there’s a huge divide in what size homes are out there. From huge mansions with double staircases to tiny homes that are off the grid, there are so many options out there that are appropriate for a variety of different people. How much space do you need at the end of the day? The truth is, this depends on a wide variety of factors, all of which can ultimately impact what size home you end up with. Let’s take a look at what you ought to consider when thinking about the size of your future home.

Your Lifestyle

What kind of person are you? Do you like having the latest and greatest in technology, invest in a hobby that takes up a lot of space, or are you a minimalist who doesn’t feel too strongly about materialistic pursuits? While some people require spacious living rooms or luxurious, oversized master bathrooms, others would rather cut everything back to the basics. 

How Many Occupants

Depending on the size of your family, you’re going to need to think about having enough space for everyone. Always keep in mind that your family may grow or shrink in the future, so you want to plan as far ahead as you reasonably can. Some builders may even calculate square footage based on the number of occupants, guaranteeing that you’ll have enough shared living spaces as well as bedrooms and bathrooms.


It’s nice to dream big but cost is one of those limitations that always drops us back into reality. How much money are you willing or even capable of spending? You may want to build a large custom home with all your dream features but if you aren’t able to afford it, it may not be on the table. You’re also going to have to keep all of the additional costs in mind, like maintenance fees, all the right furnishings, and more.

Available Land

Like cost, the amount of space you’re working with is also a big limiting factor. Having a larger property means more maintenance, but you may have the kinds of hobbies or lifestyle that justify having a larger property.
