The most important things to consider when building your forever home?
When it comes to building your forever home, there are so many things to take into consideration. From selecting the right location and custom home builder, design and light options, you can’t stop dreaming of the day you finally move into your new home.

First of all, it’s not enough to choose a great location for your home if it’s not really accessible. This is actually one of the main challenges in building a forever home: to remain accessible for the many years to come.
For instance, you can ask your builder to recess your sliding doors into the concrete slab during construction in order to minimise the size of the step to the outdoor spaces. These simple details will make you feel thankful later in life.
Room to grow vs. adaptability
Another important factor to consider is the size of your home. In fact, it may not be large from the very beginning but, as your family grows and also their need for space, you will most probably want to extend at some point in life.
But if you wish to avoid all these, try to predict what that space will be used for later in life so that it serves its current and future purposes, too. In fact, anticipating how the room may need to change will minimise the amount of construction needed for future alterations. You maybe want to convert a bedroom into a large walk-in wardrobe or a home office when the kids leave home. Long-term thinking is key.
Kitchen and bathroom basics
Moreover, you should carefully think about your kitchen design and facilities as you will want them to serve you for the years to come. But how can you keep the balance between aesthetics and practicability? Ask your custom home builder to create a design that will suit your lifestyle, your needs and your preferences.
Similarly, bathrooms should also be very carefully planned. Most of the times, they are one of the biggest challenges in the design process. In order to avoid possible argues and discomfort later in life, ask yourselves the following questions: how many bathrooms and how many people will be using them? Would you opt out for open-plan bathrooms or separate ones? How will they be accessed? The more answers you have, the easier will be to make proper planning.
Last but definitely not least, think about how you can make your home sustainable in the long term. This will not only reduce your carbon footprint but also save you money on your utility bills. Still, with so many eco-friendly features available today, it is important to know which ones are more suitable for you and your family. That is why things like orientation, window system and materials have an important role in the decision-making process.
