Is Your Family Going to Grow?

Really think about this. Even if you’re not planning on having a child, or another one, miracles do happen! If there is any possibility that your family will be growing, or there is a chance that a relative may need to move in, you’re going to want to be sure that there is enough room and a spare bedroom in your home. Having a spare bedroom is beneficial even if this doesn’t happen since it can be used as a guest room when family and friends come to visit!


Do You Plan on Entertaining?

Do you mostly go out to socialize or do you always find yourself being the party host? This is important to think about as it relates to your new home. If you entertain constantly, then you’re going to want to have the space for it, whether it be a large dining area, a media room, maybe a place to play poker? However, you may entertain your guests, think about how your dream home can be designed to provide the best space for it.

How Much Time Will You Spend Outdoors?

While the winters here in Northern Colorado have the occasional cold weather and snow flurries, the sun is shining the majority of the year, and the spring and summer seasons are absolutely beautiful. If you tend to spend a lot of time outdoors reading, lounging, entertaining, etc. then think about having a backyard that’s ideal for hanging out. A fire pit is a great addition that can be used year round!

How Many Bathrooms Do You Need?

You don’t want to mess this up. It’s not a good time when you’re already running late to work, try getting into the bathroom to get ready, but it’s already occupied. Take into account how many people are in your family, how many bathrooms are absolutely necessary, and then add one. Remember that you will likely be having guests, and it’s possible that your family will possibly expand.

There are many other things to think about when planning the layout of your new custom home in Northern Colorado, but these are some great questions to get started. If you’re ready to go or would like our input, contact us today!
