One of the best things about having a custom built home is the freedom to make your own design choices. Working closely with a design builder, you can achieve a truly one of a kind, bespoke home that reflects everything you love in your living space.
But will your home design choices age well? Every year around this time, there’s a lot of media attention about the home design choices that are no longer trendy. Conveniently presented shortly in advance of most home shows and renovation season, these articles make homeowners look at the space they currently have and second-guess the choices they made. It’s a conversation to drive demand that exists independently from conversations about what good home design actually is.
Your home design choices will age well if they continue to delight you over the course of time. That’s the most meaningful metric to consider: the pleasure and comfort you take from being in your house. As custom home builders in Wayland, we’ve found that trends play a relatively small role in individual homeowner happiness. When people do choose to have a custom home built, or they are making existing renovations to their existing home, it tends to be due to the changing needs of the family.
It may not be trendy, for example, to need a six bedroom house. Or to have a home designed for someone who uses a wheelchair. Or to have a home set up for three generations to live together all at once – while making sure everyone has privacy! Good custom home design addresses the unique needs of the family first. The design process does take a little more time and energy on the part of the homeowner, but the end results are well worth it. If you’re interested in truly timeless home design, we’re the custom home builders in Wayland who can make it happen.
