I’m sure you have your own checklist for what to add to build the house of your dreams. But it’s always good to listen to experts when it comes to home improvement. Today, I’ve brought here five of the top features for building a dream house.
With the right planning, these common features can transform your own home into a more luxurious retreat, just like those residences featured in magazines and TV shows with outstanding design, but without going too much over the budget. Are you ready? Hope you enjoy them!
“Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful. - William Morris
The open house concept is becoming more popular these last couple of years, and it has this luxurious vibe that just makes any home look dreamy. Open-plan living areas are no longer divided by walls, but by half walls, counters, rugs, or even planned architectural elements.
The space becomes more airy and full of light!
High Ceilings and Skylights
High ceilings complete very well the open-plan house idea I was talking about. They make the house look more airy and bright, which will be a great cue to also add a skylight to your design! Skylights are a wonderful way of bringing a little bit of the outside world indoors. Besides, they’re super fancy, don’t you think? I feel like I would be living in a million dollar home if I had a skylight to look through every day and night.
A fancy staircase is also a reason to feel like living in a million dollar home. A unique layout, with enough space, and a staircase that makes unusual connections (connecting floors and the attic all at once, for example) are all items to check off your list of home improvement for a dream home.
More than that,
Staircases are often a great place to add storage solutions to your home! But remember, the type of material and painting of your staircase will make a difference. So make sure to have a professional service to take care of it!
A dream home usually has a lot of space everywhere, but especially in the bedroom! For that extra wow factor, a walk-in closet will be the cherry on top of the cake. There are many ways to customize a walk-in closet that will make your home the dream (and envy) of every neighbor.
There’s not a shadow of doubt your outdoor space also counts to make a home look more luxurious and a dream to live in. Adding a patio in your backyard is a great way to enjoy the space and create outdoor living space to gather friends and family on the weekends. Enhance your landscape with the best patio ideas to both create a dream home and boost your resale value!
