Things To Consider

The first things that you need to consider are the changes in your lifestyle once you get the house of your own. For example, the size of the family that is going to live in the house (you and your partner plus your son/daughter or no son/daughters) can be a major determinant as to how wide or big the house is. It can also determine how many rooms your house needs.

You will also need to consider the fact that you will have to invite guests. How often do you and your partner invite guests in the house? If you have certain rooms for extra, will you let them stay for long time periods?

The areas where you and the people in the house usually congregate is also a major determining factor in the characteristics of your house. For example, you as a family will usually spend most of their time talking and having fun in the living room or in the kitchen. The area for congregation should be large and comfortable for you and your family.

The work spaces in your house need to be congruent with your lifestyle. For example, you may find yourself a person who likes to work in the yard very often. If this is the case, then you may want to set up a workshop or a washroom in your yard. If your son/daughter likes to play really loud music, then you may want to do something about noise control, or the set-up of his/her room in accordance to yours or your neighborsĂ­.


Your need for privacy is one of the most important things to consider in choosing your own house. Most houses are shaped to an L letter or U letter. These houses usually provide more privacy in comparison to rectangular shaped houses. You will also need to consider where the windows have been placed, and how they relate to your privacy and your property in accordance to your neighbors. If you are concerned for you outdoor privacy, then you may want to take a look at homes with patios, porches and/or decks that have been enclosed.


You can envision the layout of the rooms present in the house (if the house does not have specific rooms yet). You can also envision the furniture being placed, and how much of it is needed in your new house. Make sure your furniture are not very tightly placed to one another or your house will feel very tacky in the long run. A good ratio in comfort would be 3 feet (or more) of walking space of every furniture placed. Furnishing plans is one of the most important things to consider when choosing a house.
