There are so many different definitions of what a dream home is. Not only does the location change from one family to another, but so does the home itself. One family might look at a photo of an expansive luxury home and fall in love with it, while another would dismiss it entirely as being too large for their needs. So, how does one go about defining their dream home? Here are a few factors to consider:
- Size – The overall square footage of a home needs to match a family’s idea of enough space. It isn’t just about having enough room, such as sufficient bedrooms and bathrooms, but also having a place where each family member feels comfortable.
- Style – Every country in the world has different architectural standards when it comes to a family’s home. Within each country, there are differences, too. In the United States, for example, there are many different styles, including modern farmhouse, rustic, craftsman, ranch, colonial, Tudor, Victorian, southwest, mid-century modern, Cape Cod, log homes, and more. To define your dream home, you must consider your personal preferences and what will look right in the community you have chosen.
- Features – Consider features you simply would not want to live without. It doesn’t matter if they are in the “need” category or the “want” category, provided they fit into your budget. If your goal is a dream home that you’ll love for many years to come, you’ll need to know which features you do not want to compromise with.
