Above all, a successfully designed home must accommodate the lifestyle needs of you and your family.
Who are the residents?
For comfortable living in your new home, consider the lifestyles of
your family members and prepare sufficient bedroom and storage
space for their needs.
What are your
Families often bond at meal-
times so think about setting aside space and a budget for appro-
priate kitchen appliances that will
take care of your food preparation.
Do you work from home?
If yes, consider allocating a comfortable, dedicated space so
that you can work undisturbed
for long stretches.
Do you entertain guests?
If so, think about the seating room
you require and consider ideas like
an open concept kitchen that allows guests to mingle while you cook.
What are your hobbies
Plan space and storage for your favourite past-times whether it is a display for your toy collection or a
rack for your sporting equipment.
What does the future hold?
Your home should meet your needs
for years to come. If you intend to start a family, consider a multi-purpose
room that can be converted into a bedroom when needed.
