New Family Home Design Checklist

As your family grows, it is only normal to think about moving. Maybe you need more space for the kids. Perhaps you’ve outgrown the home’s current layout. You might want to get in a better school district as the children reach kindergarten or elementary ages. Custom-building could be the perfect opportunity to create exactly the space your family needs.
Home Design
While designing a house involves a lot of decisions, the truth is, any time you need to move, there are numerous factors to consider. Houses may have some, but not all, of the characteristics you desire. However, if you decide to have the home built from scratch, you can custom-make the house to suit you.
Yet when you’re the one prioritizing home features, how can you make sure you don’t end up with regrets? What can help you stay on track and not get distracted from the home features you desire most? One key is to have a checklist.
With a ready list of must-haves for your new home, you can determine what is important to you and your household. With that in mind, here are a few examples of what is worth considering:
  1. An overall size and layout to fit your family
  2. The appropriate number of bedrooms
  3. Room for a dedicated play area
  4. An office/work area, if needed
  5. At least one bathroom with a tub, for kids’ baths
