Things to Consider When Designing a Home

If you are interested in home designs and perhaps even considering designing your own home, then you may want a little help with where to start. It’s not every day you get to design a property and, when you get started it will probably become a little overwhelming. A plan of attack will be a good place to get the ball rolling and help you to get things in order;

Location 

First things first, you will need some idea of where you want your property located and a plot of land. This needs to be a mix between a dream and reality as, you want to live somewhere that you like, but it also needs to be practical when it comes to things like work and schools, if you have children that is.

 Budget

How much money do you have at your disposal? If you are considering a 3 storey house (called แบบแปลนบ้าน 3 ชั้น in Thai) plan, then it will likely cost more than a 2-storey home. Your budget will likely determine everything that happens throughout the design and build stage, it may even determine the location, choose so, you probably want to look at things like budget and location at roughly the same time. 

Positioning 

How you want your property situated on your land is really important factor that some people overlook until the build is already underway and they discover that they could have made better use of their land if the property was positioned differently.

 Size

When looking at size this really will depend on a mix of personal preference and practicality, you might be single person, but, if you want to resell you will want a home big enough to appeal to a wide range of people. If you have a family, then you will need to think about their needs and design accordingly.

 Details

For most people, this is one of the most enjoyable parts of the design process because you can, depending upon your budget of course, choose all aspects of your homes design. How do you want your property to look? This is where you can really have some fun. 

Storage 

The amount of storage you have within your home can determine how neat it looks, if you haven’t looked into modern day storage techniques, then you will likely be very impressed with how some of the methods make full use of ‘empty space’ in order to help keep your living areas clutter free.
