Weighing the pros and cons can be daunting, but something to consider is what your ideal vision for a new home looks like. Think about your lifestyle! Are you a cooking connoisseur? Do you appreciate entertaining guests? Will you have extended family members living with you?
There are many ways you can personalize your home to suit your lifestyle. At Parkwood Master Builder, we have thoughtfully designed our floor plans to include unique options that you can use to modify your favourite layout and give your home every feature it needs to be perfect for you and your loved ones.
Benefits of Buying a Personalized Home
Did you know that you do not necessarily have to build from scratch if you would like to personalize your home? At Parkwood, we build a number of model homes in each community for home buyers who may not have time to start from the ground up but would still appreciate buying a new build. That said, you can purchase a model home at any stage of construction, so depending on what stage your desired home is at, there may be plenty of room to put a personal spin on your layout.
How You Can Personalize Your Home
Personalizing your space gives you an opportunity to consider what would make settling into your new home as efficient as it is exciting! Our Parkwood team has been building personalized homes in St. Albert, Edmonton, and surrounding areas for upwards of 35 years, which has given us plenty of insight into how people choose to modify their spaces.
If you’re looking for some inspiration, here are four ways you can personalize your Parkwood home to suit your lifestyle:
- Main Floor Bed + Bath
Does someone in your family have a hard time using the stairs? Having a bedroom and full bathroom on the main floor can be very beneficial for a comfortable living space. It is also a convenient place for a guest room if you like to host friends and family members overnight. Having a bedroom with a full bathroom across the hall gives multi-generational family members (or your guests) everything they need to live comfortably without feeling like they are taking up someone else’s space.
- Mud Room Tech Area
If you are someone who handles a lot of paperwork at home, has a ton of different electronic charging cords to wrangle, or generally has a lot of “stuff” that needs a home, incorporating a dedicated tech area or homework desk off the mud room might solve your storage situation. At Parkwood, our tech area option features a built-in desk with enough room to store documents, electronics, and other frequently used accessories in a convenient spot.
- Side Entry
Turning your basement into a legal suite can be an effective way to supplement your mortgage payment. You can make this concept a reality by personalizing your new home with a separate side entry so renters can access their living space privately and enjoy the convenience of having their own mailing address for their suite.
- Chef’s Kitchen
Master your cooking skills and embrace an entertainer’s lifestyle by putting a chef’s kitchen into your new home! A chef’s kitchen is designed with functionality and convenience in mind, including ample storage solutions, an oversized island with room for guests to sit at, and even two separate sinks if required for the ultimate prep space.
