It is absolutely possible for a dream home to make sense for the needs and desires of your family. Here are our top 5 ways to make a dream home family friendly!
1. Understand what kind of homeowner you are.
Based on what your tastes and interests are in regards to your home, select fabrics and finishes that serve your family’s lifestyle. Whether you’re a family of 2 or a family of 6, it’s important for a home to be layered with fabrics and finishes that ride out design trends and is filled with thoughtfully-made furniture that withstands more than the everyday wear.
2. Make sure every family member has a place they can call their own.
For those designated spaces of each family member, add their personality into the detailing of that room. Those thoughtful details will make it feel much more like home.
3. Lots of storage!
If you have kids, then you know how quickly the living space can become cluttered with toys. It’s a real game changer when you have storage space on hand, not just for the things you use seasonally, but for the items you use everyday! You can make things easily accessible, but still store it away when you don’t need it.
4. Have a great kitchen!
The kitchen is the heart of the home and often the gathering place when you entertain. Give your kitchen a great sense of flow, making it comfortable and welcoming.
5. Don’t forget to budget for the outdoor area of your home.
A great way to make a dream home family friendly is investing in the outdoor area of your home! The outdoor area extends a home’s enjoyment when there is a space for the kids to play and a place for adults to gather outdoors.
