You Need to Consider these Things Before You Building Your Own Property

Monday, August 08, 2016

Building your own property can be the ultimate adventure and a great challenge for anyone that is a homeaholic like me. You get to put your very own place together, in your very own way. But it can be difficult, especially if you are not familiar with the architecture and planning industries. Read on to find out what sort of things you need to consider before you get going.


House Design


Before all of the inside details can be dealt with, you must, first of all, have a design for the property and how it will look on the piece of land you are using. Of course, there are so many different designs you can choose from, or even get a customer designed property. Why not check out some home design ideas to get you inspired for your new home. Then you can get a sense of what would work for you and your family before you speak to your architect.


It's also important in the design stage that you factor in the right amount of outside space for your needs. Gardens can be a fantastic place to unwind and relax, but make sure it actual fits your requirements.

If mobility is an issue, get the garden levelled and add paving so you can move around it easily. If you are older and not too keen on gardening, why not get a large deck and law so you can still enjoy the outside, without too much maintenance?


One you have the designs finalised you can move onto the fun bit of planning the interior. This is a good time to consider what sort of vibe you want your home to give off. Are you more concerned with space and light? Or do you want somewhere to cosy up in and act as your personal haven from the strains and stress of the world? Depending on what you pick, you may go for entirely different looks inside.

Walls or open plan

For example, if you want a cosy retreat for reading and sitting by the fire, you might be better to plan your property design to include interior walls. Then you have the privacy of individual rooms, which will also keep it more economical to heat, as you only need to heat the room you are in at the time.
Alternatively, if you live in a hot country, an open plan space might be a more sensible idea. This allows the free movement of air and provides a light, bright space for all the family to enjoy. But remember to include enough storage for items that you don't want on show.

Carpets or hardwood

Something else you will need to think about is whether you want carpets or wooden floors. Carpets give that luxe feel and are so soft to walk on. But can dirty quickly and cost a lot to maintain. Hardwood floors are much more hard wearing and can be swept and dusted easily. But some people don't like the echoing effect that they produce in a room. Whichever you choose make sure it reflects your design aesthetics.
