In today’s age, having a house of our own is an expensive dream. Some are able to fulfill it, and unfortunately, some are not. If you luckily belong to the former group that can afford to own a house, I have a few tips for you to build the most beautiful house of your dream. Read on to know more…
My House, My Design!
Typically, when we plan to build a house, we rush to engineers and builders to design a house for you. But really? Do you want someone else to design your dream house? Nah, right? So do not fear to bring your ideas to life, because no one knows your house and needs better than you!
Grab a pencil and a piece of paper. Make a list of features that you want to have in, say – the bedroom, the living room, the balcony, and even the toilet! Accordingly, make a rough sketch of how you imagine your dream house to look like.
Once you are ready with your design, then go to the engineer and ask him to design a house that has all the features you have mentioned. That way, your dream house is customized according to your needs and wishes!
Long Term Plan
Remember – this is an important thing to always keep in mind before constructing any house. Why did you ask? Because imagine – you might be a bachelor now, but how long do you plan to remain a bachelor? You will marry and have kids in the future. But have you planned the perfect kids’ room that your children might love, in the future? Now you got it!
To summarize, keep the future in mind while planning so that you do not need to renovate or alter your house at a later stage.
Don’t Be In The Dark!
Don’t worry, I am not warning you of any scam here! All I wanted to say is – when you design your home, make sure the even spread of natural light everywhere in the house and it’s not dark in the house even during the day!
Place windows strategically so that your house is filled with both natural light and air at all available times. This will not lead you to suffocation, and bright home will lead you to positivity.
Lighter Colors On The Walls
As far as possible, try not to paint your interior walls with dark colors. Because darker colors will absorb the natural light coming in, and it will again make your house look dark and dull.
Try painting your house with lighter colors. You might find it to be too mainstream, but consider painting with white color. It will reflect each ray of light and your house will always be bright with the spread of positive energy psychologically and Happiness!
