Marc Vandenhoeck's Blog on Designing a Luxury Home
Updated: Jun 25
When you're investing your money on a home, you want it to be perfect. Here are a few tips you'll want to follow when designing your customized home.
Choosing the Right Contractor
When you build a custom home, you can either tailor an existing floor plan or create a one-of-a-kind home to include everything on your list, but both options require a skilled architect and a reputable home builder.
Forming a Budget
Many clients have their custom home design concept in their head, but they have no idea of the cost associated with this design. Before starting this process, you need to have a realistic budget of what you can invest into your home. Riverside Design and Build LLC can help you determine your budget by providing you with a cost estimate of the homes in your neighborhood. It is not a good idea to be the most expensive home in your area. We can also provide you with a precise estimate to build your custom home.
Putting Function First
Have you been in a luxury home that feels a little empty? You want a home that communicates warmth. If your architect doesn’t plan each space to be functional, furnishable and flow with the house as a whole, a luxury home can easily feel unwelcoming. It’s up to you and your architect and builder to plan how to optimize each space, so your entire home feels warm and inviting.
The true definition of a custom luxury home is a home that provides a great family setting. At the same time, you need a friendly and engaging space for entertaining guests. Talk to your architect/builder about how you’ll spend time in your home, to ensure your home functions the way you want it to.
Every detail in your custom luxury home matters. Even something such as the duct work has an effect on how you live in your home. Contact Riverside Design and Build today at 914-764-1094 to start designing your luxury home.
