Especially when building a custom, new construction home, a major question is “what type of project you should choose?” This also applies to remodeling. How big should your house be? How many bedrooms do you want? How much space is devoted to living space? How many bathrooms do you want? These are common questions, along with others. Today, with the help of a general contractor Chicago trusts, we offer a few tips on choosing the best house project.
- Know your budget. It is all well and good to picture a huge mansion with ten bedrooms and three bathrooms in your dreams. For most families, that’s not practical. A larger floor plan requires more expenses. Remodeling one room is less expensive than a full remodel.
- Think long term. If you are planning to be in your home a long time, think long term. What may change in the future? Do you plan to have kids? How many? That may affect factors such as the number of bedrooms or bathrooms.
- Think practically first. Don’t give up your dreams. Those are great to have. But make sure your practical needs are met first (i.e. functional bathroom, kitchen, storage space, etc.)
