Begin by brainstorming for ideas. Browse magazines and design blogs and go to home expos to come up with ways to make your home as luxurious as possible. Besides conventional luxuries like stainless steel kitchens and jetted bathtubs, think of ways to make bedrooms, living rooms and even closets nicer.
It’s very easy to go over budget with home projects so it’s important to set a budget top and stick to it. Are there things you must have like a three-car garage, marble floors, two fireplaces, or a swimming pool with attached spa? List everything you would like in your dream home with itemized costs.
Now that you have a budget set, it’s time to narrow down the list you created while brainstorming. Decide which items that are absolutely necessary to your family and which items are optional, prioritizing your list. If you’re over budget, keep making adjustments until your budget is met.
Of course, a luxury home doesn’t have to be huge or filled with all the latest high-tech gadgets. For some, luxury is a simple front porch with a beautiful view or a family room where everyone can get together and have a good time. Happy building and enjoy your new home.
