Well-designed new homes are being built with must-have features for your new home in common, including:
Surely, we can see the value of each of these items as we realize our vision of a dream space to sleep, eat, store things, and enjoy our moments together with family and friends.
Still, if we dig a little deeper, we’ll enter a higher level of comfort based on easy livability.
Here, then, is a more detailed list of what a newly constructed dream home can include both inside and out-of-doors:
A large home needs significant electrical power. All outlets should be located next to where lamps and appliances are and at the correct height. Adding-on outdoor electrical PVC piping conduits puts all core systems into easy-to-work-with locations.
Investing in a secondary generator system will keep your food cold and your wine regulated when weather comes.
Include stoves with convection, grilling, and slow cooking operations; internal temperature wands accessories for bread warming, marinating and separate holding bins make it a cinch to cook meat correctly.
Built-in surround-sound speakers, multiple TVs, a CD/vinyl/streaming music system, theatre seats, and a smart security system are big winners.
Building a specific room for pool and shuffleboard tables, foosball, card tables, trophy cases, a wine cellar, wet bar, and beverage refrigerators will keep the family together for nights-in.
These will keep inclement weather out of your weekend entertaining, food, and beverage events.
Internal garage upgrades for workshops, loft storage, electrical needs, and vehicle display areas make men happy.
Add a counter space, a slop sink, incoming laundry chute, hot water loop and the ‘guts’ of a central vacuum system are key comforts when undertaking household duties.
Solar panels, deep insulation for soundproofing and keeping out the weather is popular and sustainable. Adding a roof/fan system that will return fresh air throughout the house in conjunction with a radiant floor heating system, for specific rooms of the house, will help keep air conditioning and heating costs down by determining spaces where it’s needed. Bonus: you this help save energy!
These systems use double/triple-paned glass for insulation and soundproofing; gradient, dark-to-light transition window film keeps it cool; large, fashionable windows in high ceilinged rooms will show off breathtaking exterior landscapes; plus, direct, indirect and recessed lighting capabilities work with the windows to create beautiful light throughout. Another way to stay green and energy-efficient.
Adding second sinks, high vanities, shower seats, dual shower heads, tall ceilings, hidden hallways, dual staircases, book nooks, hidden pooch beds, a hidden safe or ‘safe room’ can help in a pinch.
As you can see, the opportunities are many when you hire an excellent builder and architectural team who can guide you through remodeling your new home or building one from scratch.
Plus, something you should do now: maximize your mortgage!
Historically, mortgage interest rates are at all-time lows.
Scoop that up.
Then, put all the elements we’ve just discussed into that mortgage loan.
Do not use your charge card!
Unless you plan to use airline miles and hotel rooms that are offered, why pay 18% to borrow when you can condense it into one low-interest note?
