Start with your budget
Even though we all need to think big when it comes to designing our dream homes, it is very important that you start with a realistic budget and know your limits. This make it easier to choose the home that will give you the best value in terms of design and it makes it easier to communicate with your team in terms of what’s off limits. We at Titan Construction, Building Contractors, Cork can assist you with creating your budget and will always consider the actual budget of our clients when we design your dream homes. We will help you to find suitable alternatives for more expensive options and we will aim to build the home of your dream within your actual budget.
Find the perfect location
As the phrase goes: “location, location, location”. It is very important when designing your dream home that you choose the right location for you. If you are hoping to build in an urban area, finding an empty plot of land can be difficult so it may be worthwhile looking at demolition or renovation of existing run down houses. This can add to your budget so be mindful of the budget you have set out when choosing where and what type of land to buy. Also when choosing a location, it’s important to think about planning permission and whether the site has full existing, outline or no planning permission. There are certain restrictions on planning permission in areas of Ireland. See our section on planning permission Cork for further details.
Hire your team
Building your dream home will take a lot of different professionals from architects to design your home, quantity surveyors to cost the project, building contractors to oversee and complete the construction, utilities providers and other tradesmen to provide the necessary utilities and fit outs. At Titan Construction, we have a team of professionals that can assist you in creating your dream home design from concept to completion.
Analyse your lifestyle
Speak to your team about your lifestyle. What do you do day to day? What are the elements of your new home that will be the most important to you and your family. Designing your dream home is different for everybody and looking at what areas of your life you wish to improve or maintain is an important step.
Create the goals for your dream home design
Having analysed your lifestyle you can now create the goals for your dream home. Do you need a special space to practise yoga, do you need to incorporate a large utility room or a downstairs bedroom? Creating this list of what you would like your home to do for you can help you to prioritise your budget and have your home fit your needs.
Think about the style of your dream home design
There are many different types of home from modern homes to traditional style homes and everything in between. A good place to start when designing your dream home is through looking at other homes that you like and can picture yourself living in. If you like a lot of modern homes, perhaps this is the style that would best suit your dream home. We can show you some examples of homes in different styles, and we can help you to develop your own style of new build home.
Look carefully at the details
Knowing your style and your goals for your home, it now becomes a lot easier to start the design process with your team. This is where the details come in. Speak to us about what particular details you have in mind and we will try to incorporate your ideas into your new home design. A good place to start when looking ta the details for your new home is Pinterest where you will find lots of ideas for every style of home and every room of the house.
