You already know that you have to tackle the big, important issues when designing a new home, but there are also some little things that can make a big difference when you plan to live in your home for a lifetime. Here are a few of those smaller new home construction considerations that many people forget to think about:
- Where will the Christmas tree go? Even though you may only have a tree up for two to four weeks each year, having to completely rearrange your living room each year can take the fun out of getting ready for the holidays. It can also be disheartening to learn that you can’t get the nice, tall tree you envisioned because you don’t have a place where the ceiling is high enough.
- Will your current furniture fit? The square footage of the new home’s living room, dining room, and bedrooms may be similar to your current home, but the layout could be different enough to make it impossible to get your furniture to look right or even fit at all. Since you are probably putting the bulk of your money into the home build, it could be problematic to have to buy new furniture, too. On the other hand, if the idea of getting new furniture is appealing, just be sure the new home’s layout is conducive to what you plan to buy.
- Do you need more outlets in certain areas of your new home? The number of outlets that are standard during new home construction may not be sufficient if you have added power needs. It is always a good idea to have extra outlets in an office area and media room, for example. Consider how and where you utilize power and don’t be afraid to ask your builder to upgrade during the build, which is far easier than adding circuits later.
