Planning The Building Of Your Luxury Home

Aug 18, 2007
Everyone dreams of someday owning their very own luxurious home. Unfortunately, for most people, the cost of buying a luxury home is just too great. One alternative, however, is to build your own luxury home. By doing so, you can save a great deal of money and you can have the home built to exactly suit your desires.

Creating a Basic Design

The first step you will have to take when building a luxury home is to create the design you want for your home. Start off by deciding how many bedrooms and bathrooms you will want in your home. Consider the number of children you currently have and plan on having in order to help guide you in determining the number of rooms you will need.

Next, determine how many stories you would like the home to be. Typically, luxury homes are at least two stories. Nonetheless, your definition of luxury may be a single story home.

Finally, plan your floor layout. Will there be a bathroom between two of the bedrooms? Will the master bedroom have a master bathroom and a walk-in closet? How large will the kitchen be? What types of appliances will be in the kitchen? What size bathroom do you wish to have?

Planning Out the Details

Now that you have the basic floor plan determined for your luxury home, it is time to start hammering out the details. For most, the two rooms that require the most attention to details are the kitchen and the bathroom. Cabinetry and countertops for both of these rooms are two elements that help make a luxury home stand apart from an every day, run of the mill home. Splurge on counters made of quality materials - steer clear of laminate countertops. In addition, be certain to purchase solid, high-quality cabinetry. Your cabinets should be dovetailed and have easy gliding capabilities that allow them to open and close easily.

Your details will also include the appliance you choose to include in your kitchen and in your bathroom. Luxury homes often have stainless steel kitchen appliances, which are both attractive and capable of being cleaned easily. Similarly, luxury bathrooms typically have large showers that are capable of holding more than one person as well as large, whirlpool tubs.

The fine detailing throughout your home will also set your luxury home apart from other homes. Ceramic tiling for the backsplash in your kitchen, crown molding in your living room and bedroom, and special use of lighting are all fine details that will give your home an extra splash that will make it the most eye-catching home in your neighborhood - and, you don't have to spend a fortune when you do the work yourself.
