One of the first things many homeowners run out of in their homes is storage space.

Even a home that seems like it has ample storage space can quickly feel crowded when you start to move in with all of your belongings. If you are considering building your home, think about including a walk-in closet design, or choose floor plans that already incorporate a walk-in wardrobe closet in the bedrooms. When considering design ideas for your new home, walk-in closets can be one of the most beneficial.

Features To Add While Building Your New Home

Building a new home provides an amazing opportunity to including everything you could need or want.

Many types of additions are easier and more affordable to add while the home is being built, rather than waiting until it is complete and performing a renovation. By adding features to the home during the construction process, you can save money and frustration in the long term. If you have made the commitment to build your new home, think about whether you would want one of these features at some point, and consider adding them now.

Bathroom trends today cannot be easily characterized. Traditional formulas no longer apply, but there is a dizzying array of choice — from traditional bathroom vanities to a modern bathroom sink and tub that resemble sculpture. As you make choices for your new home, keep in mind that today’s bathrooms have evolved; they should be filled with personality. Whether it’s a spacious master retreat or a tiny powder room, there is no reason each bathroom can’t fulfill its primary purpose and make a style statement at the same time.

CREATING A HOME PLAN RENDERING – PART 3

In this three part series, we walk you through the artistic process of creating a home plan rendering!

A home plan rendering really comes to life when color is added. See Anita’s final steps as she colors in the sky and landscaping and selects a color scheme for the home’s exterior.

Part 3 – Creating a Home Plan Rendering:

Here, I have begun to add color. I usually start with the sky because it immediately gives a 3D look. I have switched from my library of hardline black/white brushes to my color/painting brushes.
