Building a new home is an exciting process, with so many questions to consider and important decisions that need to be made. While it may be obvious what your family’s needs are now, it’s also important to think about the future and how these needs might change over time. Putting in some extra effort at the start of the project can help you make the most of your home for many years to come.

Growing Families

Perhaps one of the most obvious things to consider is if you’re thinking about adding to your family. Will there be enough bedrooms and play space for your growing brood? Are there enough bathrooms to ensure everyone has privacy? How many car spots will you need? And equally important, will parents have a private space to retreat? Factoring in a second living room can be a very practical consideration, serving as a rumpus room for younger children, then later down the track, as an entertainment space, study room or home office for young adults.

The Smart Home

Future-proofing your new home also means designing for the unforeseeable, which includes the development of tomorrow’s technologies. More home buyers are choosing to include flexible pre-wiring and digital infrastructure in their home plans, putting them in a position to take advantage of smart home technology as soon as it arrives.

Guest Bedrooms

In recent years, more and more families are choosing to invite grandparents to join the household. Are you able to easily adapt your current floorplan to provide your parents with a private and independent area of their own? Does the space offer easy access for reduced mobility? If your plans are to one day convert an area into a guest bedroom and ensuite, you may be able to configure the plumbing now so that future disruption and renovation costs are kept to a minimum.
