Building a home can be an exciting new venture with many moving parts. Thomsen Homes has a team to help you through the process and make your vision come together. Part of this process is to reflect on what your lifestyle is like and what areas of your home really are the most used or important to you. For example, if you love to cook, spend some time thinking about your kitchen space and how you would like it to function.
Below are a couple of questions to get you started on the design of your home while working with a Thomsen Homes Design Studio Specialists to bring your vision to life.
What is your budget?
Setting a budget can get tricky but making sure you have some parameters in place will help you in the long run. Try to break down your budget in to categories by what is most important to you. For example, if you want to spend more on specific items like having granite in the bathrooms.
This also is an area where you can make note of upgrades you would like to make. Ask your Thomsen Homes Design Studio Specialist about common upgrades and get some insight on what clients have done etc. This will help you get an idea of what is within your budget and what is important to you.
What will work for your family? Your lifestyle?
This is such an important part of the design process and really can get you thinking about what you want in a home and what will work for your family. Start by making a list of things that are important to you to organize your thoughts. If you enjoy entertaining, focus on the space in your home where you would be entertaining, whether it’s a dining area or a basement area with space for a bar. What works best for your lifestyle?
You may have a vision of your dream home so use inspiration from social platforms like Pinterest or Houzz when working with your Thomsen Homes Design Studio Specialist to show them ideas of what you’re thinking. Or if you have other ideas of inspiration from personal photos or magazines these are all great ways to visually communicate your vision of your home.
What are the top 5 things you want in your home?
Making a top 5 list can help prioritize what is most important to you. There is a lot to think about when building a home and don’t be afraid to use your team at Thomsen as a resource for questions you may have. Enjoy this experience of building a home for your family!
