5 New Home Must-Haves

blog-hero-musthaves Are you in the process of designing your dream home? Today we are going to share with you 5 things you should consider when building your dream home!


1. Energy Efficiency

Investing in double pane windows, LED lighting, Energy Star appliances and more is a great way to save money on utility bills in the long run.


2. Indoor - Outdoor Connections

For those of us who love entertaining, creating a space that opens up your indoors to your outdoor space is a great way to create the ultimate place for guests to hangout. French doors or a patio door that open wide will create flow making the outdoors feel like it’s a part of your home.


3. Extra Electrical Outlets

With more family members needing to charge cell phones, tablets, and laptops, homeowners are adding more and more outlets. Whether it be adding charging stations to the main living areas, selecting outlets with USB ports, or just adding extra outlets to each room, this is a great bonus home feature that will make your home stand out above the rest.


4. More Windows

The desire for natural lighting continues to grow as homeowners choose to add more and more windows to their home design. You can also achieve more natural lighting by adding skylights or solar tubes to spaces that traditional windows won't work.


5. First Floor Master Suite

When it comes to designing your dream home, consider the longevity of your floor plan. Putting your master bedroom on your first floor not only makes it easier to go to and from throughout the day without climbing the stairs, but it also is almost necessary if you’re building your forever home that you plan to grow old in.
