Perhaps you are considering buying a new construction home in Maryland. If so, you are making an excellent decision! Buying new has plenty of advantages, such as having little to fix, higher energy efficiency, and contemporary features. Even better, you could build it yourself through a custom home building company like Viking Custom Homes! Customization allows you to have everything you want in a new home down to the structural level. Of course, there are other ways to make a new build feel like home. Read on to learn strategies on how to make your new house feel homey from the start!
Customize the House
Everyone has a different style and lifestyle, and these factors will affect your custom home design in an intuitive way. You might prefer a floor plan and square footage that is formal and spacious, with separate rooms for main living areas. Alternatively, you might feel most at home with the TV room just across the way from the open kitchen. Adding details such as a fireplace, a soaker tub to your liking, and stylish architectural details can bring out your family’s style.
Color & Fill the Home with Home
Once the bare bones are there, you can think about how to color the rooms and fill them with things that make home home to you. Viking Custom Homes’ houses come with a two-tone Sherwin Williams paint treatment throughout, so you have room to choose a color and shade that suits your home perfectly. When you move in, fill the house with all of your favorite objects, smells, and sounds. Light a candle, make a home-cooked meal, and play some music.
Complete the Landscaping
Every Viking Custom Homes house comes with a complete landscaping package, so when you move in, you already have a verdant lawn and garden on your property. Without this touch, it is harder to make a new build feel like home. For more information on what’s involved, talk with Viking Custom Homes!
Decorate with Art & Photos
Back in the house, don’t rush to put up all your artwork and photos on the walls. Decorating the walls comes last after arranging the furniture and unpacking clothes, dishware, and other amenities. Take your time to plan the arrangement of your wall art before hanging them up.
Host a Housewarming Party
Nothing makes a new build feel like home than filling it with your family and friends. Moving into a new custom home is very exciting and something to share with loved ones. One can host a housewarming party and infuse the house with blessing, company, and cheer.
