What Do You Dislike?
Even if you’re not totally sure exactly what you want in a home you can start with a list of dislikes. If you hate open concept homes make this known. Homes come in different architectural styles. If a Victorian style home, for example, is not your cup of tea be sure to communicate this. A list of dislikes will help a custom home builder in Tampa know which styles, finishes, and materials to stay away from when crafting your luxury home.
Do You Like to Entertain?
Your current entertainment habits will mirror your future entertainment habits. If you are known for hosting potlucks, birthday parties, and holiday shindigs, you’ll want to plan your kitchen, guest bedroom and bathroom, and outdoor living space with this in mind. You’ll want a kitchen that doesn’t isolate you from guests. You may also desire an outdoor living space with enough seating and picturesque views for your guests.
Just the Basics or All the Bells and Whistles
Luxury homes can be built for the minimalist and the lavish-minded home buyer. Minimalistic homes are all about simplicity. Their design is simple and straightforward, finishes are uncomplicated, and spaces are clean and open. There is less decoration and limited use of color palettes. The opposite of that is the extravagant home, which can range in its lavishness and include everything from state-of-the-art entertainment and technology, private gyms and spas, wine cellars, and separate guest quarters.
In conclusion, your dream home is just a design away but the more thought and detail you put into creating your luxury home wish list, the better your initial preliminary design and final results will be.
