Bigger Isn't Always Better: Deciding on a Home Size

Bigger Isn't Always Better: Deciding on a Home Size

If you ask most people what they would desire most in a new home, it's likely that many would prioritize size. While the need for more space might certainly be a major concern for you, the amount of extra space you actually need—or don't need—might surprise you. Here are a few things to consider when taking size into account during the home buying process.

How Do You Use Your Space?

Would your idea of a new home include rarely used spaces that just collect dust? There's certainly nothing wrong with splurging on what you want most, like a nice master bedroom with a private bathroom and walk-in closet, but it may be worth considering what you would use each room for before deciding on which home plan works best for you. Think about which size and layout would provide just the right amount of space for the comfort of you and your family.

What's Your Plan for Bedrooms?

Do you plan to have your kids share rooms, or will they each have their own? The upside of sharing rooms is that it gives you less area to maintain, but the downside is that the shared living space often reflects the number of bedrooms. If you prefer that they share, you might consider ways to create more common areas, like finishing the basement. Of course, kids also tend to outgrow shared bedrooms, so you may want to consider a home with additional bedrooms to ensure that every member of the family has enough personal space.

What Is It That Makes Your Home Feel Like Home?

Chances are, it's not the size that drives the sentiment of home. Personal touches and individualized features go much further in giving a home a cozy, secure feeling than unnecessary space does. Think about features like linear fireplaces, big bay windows, accent ceilings, the gourmet kitchen layout you've always wanted, or even design options like cabinetry and fixtures.
