How to start house building?
So you’ve decided to build your dream home and now you want to make sure that the inside of your home will be set up by your contractor just right. So how do you go about designing your kitchen with the contractor?
- Remember the kitchen is the ‘heart of the home’. Whether you are a major foodie and enjoy cooking or just use it as a place to store the cold cuts and brews, people often end up hanging out in the kitchen. So you want to make sure it’s spacious enough to fit several members of your family or your typical crew of friends. Consider your current home or apartment – is it big enough, too big or a little bit small? That will give you a great starting point.
- Kitchen finishes- like granite countertops and special cupboards- are long term investments as they can be costly to replace and shouldn’t need to be switched out for a decade or longer. So try to choose neutral colors. This will also help as a selling point if you decide to sell your home in the future.
- Consider mixing finishes with wooden countertops, tiled backsplashes or floor tile. This will create contrast and interest in the room.
