So you’ve decided to build the home of your dreams. You’ve picked your lot, you’ve got your financing, and now you’re talking numbers. It can be overwhelming to figure out your budget, but it can be even more difficult to decide where those numbers go. Do you want to spend most of your design budget in the kitchen? Do you have an expensive project in the living room that you want to focus on?
The good news is, just like creating a custom home build, you can create a custom budget. It doesn’t matter if you go for frugal flooring in the kitchen and bare minimum cabinets if you want to save your money for a big garden bathtub. Your budget doesn’t have to be evenly dispersed throughout the house and you don’t have to splurge on every room. You make it work for you.
Start by figuring out your custom home must-haves. Whether that includes dreaming of a huge master bathroom and a walk-in closet or a family room you’ve had planned for years doesn’t matter. Make a list of everything you definitely want, even little things like open shelving in the kitchen or built-in bookshelves in the bedroom.
Once you have your must-haves, look at your budget and make sure everything is feasible. If it’s not, you’ll have to pare down your list again so that you remain within budget, but still get the items in the house you want.
It sounds overwhelming, but it’s all about planning, scheming, and dreaming — you’ve probably been doing all three for a while if you’re building a custom home. Your builders can also help you with your budget and help you decide which projects are worth the money and which ones can be less expensive than you originally thought.
