There are many sayings about what makes a house a home. Love. Good cooking. A warm and welcoming atmosphere. If you’ve ever rented a house or moved into an existing one, you’ll be aware that although you can change the colours of the walls and decorate the space in any way you like, at the core, it wasn’t designed with you in mind.

Perhaps some rooms are too small; perhaps your kitchen just doesn’t work with the way you want to use your kitchen. If you have the option of designing your own home from scratch, you have the opportunity to create a space that is absolutely perfect for you and what you need. This goes much further than how many bedrooms and bathrooms you’d like to have, or whether you want a single or double-storey with a balcony.

With the help of expert designers and home builders, Dandenong customers can create a living – and thriving – space to call their own. Here are a few things you should think about while planning your home design.

Examine And Compare Your Needs And Previous Experiences

Think about all the things that bothered you about all the previous houses you’ve lived in. Consider your personal daily routines and how you spend your time at home. What is most important to you? Will having a great view from your study or home office help keep you in the zone or distract you? Are there not enough drawers and too many cupboards? Have the bedrooms felt too on top of each other in the past?

Making a list of all these aspects will help you narrow down what you do and don’t want in your new home, as well as what you can change to create an optimal living space.

Consider Future Changes

If you’re starting a family or have an already growing one, consider how your house will adapt as your kids get older. Create a vision of transformation for your home that will suit your family as the years go by, one where your home essentially grows with you. The baby room might be practical right next to yours for now, but later on, your teen may want a bit more of their own space. If you like hosting parties, consider several small entertainment nooks beyond just one main one.

Tying together everything you need and wish to have into one solid plan of action may be daunting. Calling in the help of experts who are dedicated to designing and building custom homes that truly make you feel at home will quickly put your concerns to rest and leave you excited about the day your dream home is a reality.
