6 Tips on Designing a Custom Home

When it comes to homes, especially building a custom home, it’s important to pay attention to the finer details. Unlike renting a place where you know at the end of your lease, you’ll be turning over the keys and giving it back, a home is yours until you sell it. When you design a custom home, this all applies even more.

Today, we’re going to give you six tips to get you started on your custom home construction journey.

6 tips on designing a custom home

1. Start Small and Basic

The key to going custom is having a strong foundation to build on. When you’re first starting out in the planning phase, choose what essentials you’re looking for from chimneys to winding staircases. 

2. Imagine What You Want Down the Line

Now that you know what major elements you want to be included, it’s time to envision what you might want in the future, after all, you can’t get a pool if you don’t plan the backyard first.

3. Focus on What You Want First

When designing your custom home, you always want to make sure that you nail down what you want first. That should always be the top priority. 

If you start planning and leave out something major, then you’ll be kicking yourself later down the line. And it might even be hard to add what you wanted given the progress of the project. 

4. Make it Function

We covered the importance of making sure that you add everything that you want in terms of your custom home, but does it function properly?

For example, are you putting the deck in the right place or forgetting about a sewage line? Always double-check to make sure that your home will work in the design. 

5. Lighting

Lighting is one element that people tend to forget about until they have a giant sunroom placed where the sun never hits. While you plan out everything you want in your house while ensuring the design flows correctly, always check that your light sources are in the right place. 

6. Don’t Overthink It

When you customize your home, there’s a lot that goes into it all, sure. But you also want to allow yourself the ability to have a good time creating your dream home.
