5 MISTAKES TO AVOID WHEN BUILDING A NEW HOME….

Building a home should be, and often is, an exciting journey of fulfilling lifelong dreams. However, it needs to be approached carefully. You should make sure you get everything right the first time around, as mistakes are costly and hard to fix. Read on to find out some of the most common building mistakes to avoid when building a New Home…

1)Think about your Space Needs before deciding on a Floor Plan

By far, one of the most common design mistakes we see is short-term space planning. If you’re designing a custom home, you’re likely to live in it for a while. That means the spaces you need now may change over the next few years. Consider how long you’ll stay in this home and what types of spaces you’ll need during that time.

When you’re looking at your space requirements, make sure to include bedrooms, closets, storage areas and living spaces. Asking yourself the following questions may help you accurately gauge how much space you’re going to want:

  • How many bedrooms do you need?
  • Where do you spend most of your time at home?
  • Do you cook regularly, or are you rarely in the kitchen?
  • Do you work at home? Do you need a home office?
  • How often do you entertain?
  • Do you have family or friends who visit regularly?
  • Do you need space for a guest room?
  • Do you have or plan to have children and need bedrooms for them?
  • Do you have older children who will be moving out?
  • If you’re building a play room or game room, what will it be used for in a few years?
  • Do you have hobbies and activities that need extensive storage?

Good space planning can help keep your home useful throughout your time in it. If you anticipate lots of changes, it can help to design multi-purpose rooms. Consider whether a guest room can be converted to an office, or whether you’ll need two different rooms.

2) Don’t Do It Yourself

Doing it alone might seem like a money-saving idea, but this is a major task and choosing not to use professionals can be a costly mistake. Experienced designers and builders will have the knowledge and tools to help you plan and build a house that is safe and well-crafted, within a set time frame and budget. Do your research when choosing professionals, ask for their recent references and view some of their previous building projects.

Some Architect firms provide both design and build services, it is better to hire them, because they will be the single point contact for you from start to completion of the project.

3) Make Changes during the Design Phase, Not the Construction Phase

It’s common to make a few changes to a custom floor plan. You may find that you want to change the materials you use for flooring or cabinetry. You might also realize that you want to make larger changes like adding a room or changing the layout.

However, remember that changes during the construction process are more expensive than changes during the design phase — and that cost isn’t just financial. There may also be delays in acquiring the supplies needed, and your timeline might be slowed down by these delays. Additionally, the extra construction may add to the total cost.

So, discuss with your Architect and make the necessary changes in designing stage itself.

4) Avoid Taking Shortcuts

It can be easy to choose basic materials and fittings, especially when your budget is a bit tight. Keep in mind that doing this can be very costly in the long run. While it is important not to overspend, careful planning should go into buying good-quality materials that will last over the years. This is especially vital when deciding on fundamentals such as walls and floors, and plumbing fixtures and fittings. Even if it means you have to save a little longer before you can start building, it’s worth it to avoid a house that starts falling apart after a year or two.

5) Having a budget without a buffer

It’s important to establish a budget when building a home. The budget should include a slush fund that takes into consideration unforeseen circumstances and overages, because even with the best-intentioned estimate, incidentals will likely still come up.

All of these answers can help you to find the right professional to build for your home.

Choose the Right Dining Table!!

A dining table is one of the most important pieces of furniture you’ll buy for your home. Not only does it function as a place to eat, it’s also a place for family gatherings, newspaper sprawl, and homework sessions. It can be the centre piece of a room where friends and loved ones hang out, talking and enjoy each other’s company.

But before you run out and buy the first thing you fall in love with, you’ll need to consider a few factors first.


Style:

Start with your lifestyle. One of the most important considerations is how and where will you use your table?

If your table is an extension of your kitchen or family room, chances are you’ll use it more often, such as for food prep, homework or crafts. You’ll want something that’s more casual in style with a durable surface that won’t damage easily.

Obviously, your own personal style preferences—eclectic, modern, traditional—will help inform the style of table as well.
Size:

It’s so important to have a table and chairs that are comfortable and fit the scale of the room.
As a general rule, allow a minimum of 90cm space between the walls or other furniture in the room and the table.
It’s also important to measure the table to chair height to ensure you can comfortably sit without cutting of the circulation in your legs. Leave about 20cm from the seat to the table top, although 30cm would be more generous.

Shape:

The shape of the table is equally important in creating a beautiful and comfortable space.

Rectangular

A rectangular table is the most common shape because most dining rooms are rectangular. It’s also a great shape for seating more than four people. Rectangular tables are often more flexible since many come with leaves that extend the length.

Square

A square table looks best in a square room. It’s also a great solution when you have a small guest list – a large table can be off-putting. You can always put two square tables together and make a rectangular table for special occasions.

Round

A round table works well in small rooms and smaller square shaped rooms. It creates a cozy and intimate setting, so it’s the best shape for a small group of people. A large round table, however, can make guests feel very far away from each other. For versatility, get one with a leaf that changes into an oval shape that accommodates a larger group of people.

 Material:

If you want a dining table to last a lifetime, choosing hardwood over materials like MDF or engineered timber is best. It may be a little cheaper to buy, but they won’t be as strong and durable as a solid timber table.

Solid timber also ages well and over time the table will develop character and tell stories of rowdy dinner parties, growing children, and many delightful home cooked meals.

Glass can work well in modern spaces and those lacking in room because it allows light to filter through and visually, it isn’t too heavy. Unfortunately, glass will incur some scratches and doesn’t pair well with little fingers.

Marble is another option for a strong dining table that will last and work well in both a contemporary and traditional setting. Pay close attention to the table sealant, as a nasty red wine stain will ruin the entire top. Also consider how often you might move, marble is not only extremely heavy, it’s also costly. So you wouldn’t want to take the risk of dropping or knocking the top very often.

Choose the Right TV Unit!!

TV units have become so much more than just a place for putting your beloved TV. The reality is that the TV unit for many of us is the focal point of our living room. And if statistics are correct, we apparently spend an average of 4 hours per day watching TV. It’s our go to place for pure entertainment and relaxation at the end (or the beginning) of our day. TV units offer a host of functions – they can be used as a storage unit, wall shelving, display nooks and even electronic and media storage. There are number of factors that have to consider before choosing the right TV unit. Here are some basic tips that will help you in Choosing the Right TV Unit.

Consider the Size of the TV

The basic thing which you need to consider before selecting the TV unit is size of the TV. It should be able to fit the in the panel and should not be too big or too small. TV comes along with its digital accessories like the cable box, USB wires and more. A TV unit should be able to provide good support for these as well. A good suggestion would be to opt for the one which is wider than the TV so that they complement each other by maintaining a proper proportion and balance.

The size of the TV includes its weight as well. If it is on the bulkier side, opt for a TV unit which is sturdy and can withstand pressure.

Size of the Room Is Important

TV unit has to be well complemented with the entire room and not just the television. So, selecting the TV unit that fits the size of your room is very important. If you have big room, opt for a unit which has a lot of storage space. For a room with space crunch, choose a sleek and sturdy TV unit.

Storage Requirements

Choose a TV unit which endows you with enough storage to keep the TV accessories intact as well as other stuff which can be housed inside it. If you have sound speakers or other big devices, then you might need more spacious storage furniture.

Design and Style of TV Unit

Just like all the furniture items that are reflecting your taste and choice in your home, a TV unit design should also be able to do the same.  The TV unit design should complement to the rest of your interiors of the room.

Choose the Right Kitchen Appliances !!

Appliances, alone, do not make a kitchen. But, they are the most important aspect of your kitchen. Choosing the right appliances for your kitchen to function efficiently can be quite confusing when trying to find the best ones for you. Follow the guide below on choosing the ideal appliance given your space and requirement.

  • Hob

With frequent use, the hob is an important piece of kitchen equipment. Based on the way you like to cook, you can choose whether you like to go with gas hob or induction. In India, maximum people will go with traditional glass hob, which create uniform flame, with cooking gas supplied from a cylinder or pipeline. And it is available in glass and steel materials, varying number of burners, as well as built-in options.

  • Chimney

Kitchen chimney is an appliance that absorbs smoke, fumes from kitchen and makes kitchen clean and oil, smoke free. In fact, modern kitchen chimney adds style and decor to your modular kitchen. There are different types of chimney based on size, filter types, design, and ducting. So choose the chimney that fits your needs

  • Ovens: 

The options are endless in ovens: wall ovens, double ovens, and even ovens with warming drawers. In a modular kitchen, the wall oven is extremely popular as they save significant floor space. The wall oven adds to the modern look and ensures the baking and cooking areas of the kitchen are separate.

  • Refrigerators

The next large appliance is the refrigerator. It takes up significant visual space, and you have to really assess how much food needs to be stored while using the kitchen. The refrigerator is the one appliance that is running all the time, and it prevents the food from spoiling or rotting. Depending on the space allowed, you can either go for a single door or a double door fridge to store your food. Side-By-Side refrigerators are usually the easiest to organize, while smaller models have narrower freezers. Therefore, in choosing the refrigerator assesses the space and storage required to find the perfect fit.

  • Microwaves

The next step is the microwave. There are a variety of microwaves available, but first things first: where is it going to be placed? This question alone allows you to answer whether it should be placed on the counter or built-in. The built-in microwaves require finalization in the design process, and they save more space, while microwaves placed on the counter take up space, yet allow more flexibility in choosing the size and of your preference.

  • Dishwasher

Dishwashers range from high-end international models to more economical options. When finalizing one for your kitchen, ensure the dishwashers are quieter, making less noise to avoid disruption within the home. Also ensure the dishwashers are eco-friendly or have an eco-friendly option to use less power within the home. With a modular kitchen, space will be created for a dishwasher within the kitchen design. While doing so, make sure the dishwasher you desire fits below the counter and in between the cabinetry.

  • Sinks

The sink might not be the most prominent kitchen element but it provides so much more than water. Important things to consider here are the sink material and garbage disposal. What also matters is the shape, size, and depth of the sink. There are various types, ranging from single, double-bowled or three-part sinks that usually have one smaller side that houses the garbage disposal. Even for tiny kitchens, there’s no need to worry as now, there are cleverly designed corner sinks that make use of those underutilized kitchen corners and save more counter space.

The kitchen appliances are just as important as the design. They enhance the processes and are meant to ease the user experience. While choosing your appliances, ensure they complement your design, enhance your space, and ease the routine!
