Whether you’re looking to buy a new house this month or do a little remodeling, take advantage of the opportunity to give some thought to your wish list for your new home.
Below are a few ideas for housing priorities and renovation projects that typically rate high on new home owners wish lists.
Open Living Areas
The open floor plan is usually a big plus for any family. They want to be able to cook dinner in the kitchen while monitoring their children’s schoolwork at the dining table.
So look for a house that affords this visual luxury when you’re designing your new home and possibly save yourself the time and money of knocking down walls later on.
What woman doesn’t need more room for her clothes, shoes and purses? If you’re looking at houses, keep in mind how much closet space will work for both of you.
If it’s not enough, see if there’s another area you could convert to create a custom closet. A great gift would be to upgrade a closet with a new shelving and organizing storage system.
And great storage doesn’t stop in the bedroom. If you like to keep the family’s things organized and put away, think about upgrading some of the other cupboards and closets in the home as well.
Some couples are expert gardeners or love home-improvement projects; however, many just want to leave those tasks to someone else.
Many couples love easy-to-wipe-down granite counters and hardwood floors. These can be beautiful and functional home upgrades all at the same time.
Easy-to-Use Security System
While security is important to everyone, it ranks high on most couple’s list of priorities. Research providers and have a security system installed.
