If you are contemplating building your own home, you are bound to have some ideas in mind as to how you want the space to look. You may have looked online for design ideas and interior themes. Maybe you have picked up some ideas on your travels abroad and have some specific ideas when it comes to a home plan and design. However, when you actually start planning your custom-built luxury home, you want to be sure that the builder you hire for the job will be able to bring that vision to life and give it form.
Points to remember
If you hire an experienced and expert custom home builder, they would work very closely with you, and ensure that your ideas are incorporated into the design and planning. While this ensures you get the kind of living spaces you want, here are a few pointers about things you should keep in mind when getting your home built:
#1 Choose your builder with care
This is probably one of the most important things to keep in view. When you take care to choose your builder, you can be assured that they will provide you solutions that match your requirements. The things you should look for are a longstanding history of outstanding work and a good reputation in the market.
The builder should also be able to provide you customised solutions and personalised services. They should be willing to work closely with you and incorporate your ideas into the plans and architectural elements. The builder should be communicative and willing to make the alterations in plans in the designing phase, to ensure the final product meets your needs.
#2 The design concept
As a homeowner you will have certain ideas and may want to include various luxury features in your home. However, you also need to ensure there is no major clash of themes in the different spaces in your home. Your home builder and designer should work closely with you to ensure that you get the kind of spaces you want, and that the different features are included, without any design incompatibility. For instance, if you start designing the façade of the house in a classic architectural style and the interiors are all modernistic in steel, chrome and glass, the overall look of the property may become very jarring.
#3 Don’t blindly follow trends
While you are sure to want a home that is in-sync with the latest trends, you shouldn’t follow them blindly. Home design trends ebb and tide and something that was stylish at one point of time may lose its trendy quotient over time.
This is why you should be careful while incorporating trends in your home design. Ensure that the features and elements you opt for are aesthetic and functional. Above all, they should be luxurious and comfortable too. After all, you don’t want to be just living in a home that looks like a museum, but isn’t comfortable to live in.
#4 Choose your amenities smartly
Since you are building a luxury home, you want to be sure that it has all the elements that will add to this quotient. And so you may want to add anything ranging from pool houses and spas to tennis courts, mini golf greens and movie theatres etc.
While all of this sounds like good features to have on your property, you should still choose features and installations based on functionality. For example, if you like to socialise and entertain a lot, you might want to create stunning alfresco spaces with all the latest amenities like smart lighting systems, entertainment and media systems etc.
