We can understand if you think that building a house is complex and costs a lot of money. However, there is always another way to do everything. Ask any architect, and they will say that you can design and build a house in a far more economical way. The good news, we will leak this secret right now! If you are thinking about a plan to build a house, our advice will remove all your worries.
1. Determine the style of the facade of your home
This is the first thing you must do. You need to determine the desired style of the house, because this is what will determine the various elements such as material, size, and finishing touches used. If you fail to make a plan, it means you plan to fail, so the wise say. So, make a concrete design and don’t be tempted to change your mind when the development process has begun.
2. Make accurate measurements
Windows and doors must be airtight and neat, not hollow. Ask for expert help in the installation of doors and windows to do it.
3. Divide the area according to land height
Do not build anything on the land, unless the land has been divided into sections with the help of stairs, access roads or dykes. This applies especially to land with fluctuating or uneven surfaces. If you are determined to build a house on sloping land without footpaths or stairs, the work will be more difficult and take longer and cost more.
4. Choose a durable flooring material
After the structure of the new house has been established, it’s time you think about the interior and start tightening the belt. Think of a vital element to start arranging the interior and focus on it. For example, flooring or flooring. You want a durable, inexpensive, but beautiful floor. Sound too idealistic? Who knows such floor material really exists. Try to do surveys in building shops.
5. Decide on finishing interior walls
Interior walls will always need attention. But the finishing touches on the interior walls can have a big impact on the budget and duration of development. Finished concrete walls are a popular wall finishing and produce a semi-finished look similar to industrial style. Plaster walls are also one way to save costs.
6. Bathtub or shower?
You might not think that the bathroom is an area in the house that can absorb the development budget. Luxurious bathroom furniture, waterproof coating, automatic faucets, high-tech closets … none of this is cheap. Decide which one you will use, bathtub or shower? Choosing one and not both will save your budget.
7. Take advantage of narrow spaces
Even if you plan to build a house with a high level of detail, there is always a bit of empty space here and there. Don’t waste this kind of space. Use this kind of space to support daily life, for example turning it into a storage area. This method also allows you to save space usage.
8. Choose a harmonious color palette
Surely you do not want a pretty house to be chaotic because of improper interior color selection. Mistakes in choosing colors can take time and money to fix. When in doubt, just choose neutral colors and mix with light colored furniture and accessories.
9. Don’t reduce the kitchen budget
Even if you’re downsizing, don’t hesitate to spend your budget on buying quality furniture. Especially kitchen furniture. If you are married, the kitchen will be used every day. There is a risk of exposure to fire, splashing water and oil, scattered dirt that requires high-strength furniture.
10. Maximize comfort
After the house is standing, all furniture is installed and finishing is perfect, make the spaces as comfortable as you have planned. Don’t add more furniture than you need. Keep the air and light circulation in the house, and more importantly … don’t forget to enjoy your home! There will be times when you can enjoy the remaining housing construction budget.
