Map out your perfect home with the help of Californian design and building experts

Designing your own dream home is a significant and daunting task. While you may have many ideas you want to incorporate, you also need to be practical and work within a budget to create the right home for your needs. Whether you have a set vision in mind or are open to artistic suggestion, there are some essential steps in keep in mind while designing a floor plan for your home.

Bringing the Vision to Life
The first step is to know what you want your dream home to look like. Perhaps you like the open floor plan feel. Maybe you like cozy, compact rooms. To start, you’ll need some inspiration by looking at other homes or sitting with a designer or architect to discuss what you envision. An excellent Californian home construction needs to incorporate innovative design, functionality and should represent your lifestyle.

It’s all well and good looking at floor plans and houses online for inspiration. However, nothing quite matches stepping into a home and knowing that you like certain elements enough to use them in your home design. Visit showrooms and open houses for potential pointers and get plenty of photographs of elements that you like. If there is a theme or idea that you particularly like, don’t let it slip by you as you may be able to incorporate it.

Once you have collected sufficient references and inspiration, you will need to organize your findings. File references, photographs, and magazine clippings neatly so that you can source them easily when needed. It’s also wise to know the basics of what you want, such as: how many bedrooms you’ll need, how many people will be staying in the house at any given time, if you will have pets at home, whether it will be an urban or rural home, and what your budget looks like.

Laying Out a Final Plan
Once you have the floor plan crystal clear in your mind, it’s time to work with a design professional to get it down on paper. The first stage is to lay out a rough idea of a floor plan. This is beginning of the design stage, and it will help solidify your dreams on paper. You should be presented with 3d renderings for final approval that will help you visualize how the final product will look like. A professional will be able to help you overcome obstacles as well as spot potential red flags that could be issued later on down the road.
