Design Inspiration When Working With A Home Builder For The First Time

Tommy Franklin

Owning a house is undeniably a dream most millennials aspire to since it provides you with a sense of security. Therefore, when it comes to a custom house, most people will consider this the epitome of success since you get to call the shots about your custom home. But one thing a good number of people take for granted when it comes to their custom home is having a design plan. Instead, they tend to be caught up in the myriad of solutions available to them, which results in a mixed and matched space that will not have any cohesion. Thus, not only should you have an idea about the design specifications of the new home but you should also work closely with your home builder to ensure the best results. To help ease the overwhelming feeling that may come about with the chance to configure a house, here is some design inspiration to help you along when working with a home builder for the first time.

Do not compromise on form for function

One of the common mistakes that some individuals make when designing their first custom home is focusing all their attention on how functional the space will be and underrating the importance of form. While the form may, on the surface, seem to be exclusively an aesthetic concern, the reality is that practicality will not add character to your custom home. For your forever home to have individualism that complements your taste, form should be a top priority too. A reputable home builder is the best professional to marry the functional aspects from the new house with the expectations you have for its form and this ensures that your house will always be a reflection of your personality. For example, you could choose a particular motif, such as arches, to be a primary feature in your custom home.

Factor in daily living

The second design consideration you should have is the materials you will utilise in your custom home. It can be easy to splurge on expensive supplies, such as marble if you have a flexible budget. Nonetheless, you need to determine how functional the different materials will be in various applications regarding your day-to-day life. For example, if you have young children, you should opt for supplies that are scratch and impact-resistant, such as soapstone benchtops, rather than marble that can be damaged prematurely. On the other hand, if you plan to have pets in the home, stained concrete floors will be a functional yet visually pleasing addition to your custom home. Your home builder can guide you on what materials will be best suited for your daily life while factoring in how the materials tie into your custom home's aesthetic.
