So, you’re building a custom home – what an exciting time! While the options are virtually endless, making that many decisions can also be a daunting task. To help the process become less daunting, we recommend building a custom home wish list that you can use as a baseline for your Victoria BC custom home. Below are some tips on how to develop your wish list.
- Go for it: Your custom home should be your dream home, so don’t be afraid to dream big! Start by listing everything you could want in your dream home, and look for inspiration online, in magazines, or even just around your neighbourhood. Would you want an open plan kitchen/dining room? Heated floors? A fireplace? A walk-in closet? Once you are done your research, make sure your list has everything you could want – even things that you may think are out of your price range.
- Prioritize: Once you’ve got a list of the features that you would like in your dream custom home, it’s time to prioritize these elements into “must-haves” and “nice-to-haves”. If it helps, create a table where you can sort your list into things you definitely want in your home, things you would prefer to have but can live without, and things that would be ideal in a perfect world. While you are doing this, keep your lifestyle and budget in mind.
- Call in the experts: Once you have your wishlist drafted, you’ll want to speak with an expert who is knowledgeable on pricing and timelines. You might be surprised how many things from the “nice-to-have” or “perfect world” lists can be included in your home design! Once you have worked together to finalize the list, this will become the base for your custom home design.
