Flexible Room Layouts 

One great way to create a house that can change with your family’s needs is to start with a room! Creating rooms that can adapt to changing needs is a surefire way to increase their life. Some examples of this would be a nursery that can become a home office or guest room later on, or building an outdoor storage shed and initially using it as a children’s playhouse.

Open Floor Plans

Consider open floor plans to allow easy reconfiguration of space as your family grows and needs change. For example, an open living room area allows you to easily upgrade couches, chairs, and other furniture, to match your family’s size or style preferences. 

Timeless Design Choices

Choose finishes and fixtures that won’t go out of style quickly so they can grow with your family’s evolving tastes. There are always trendy design choices that come and go, but timeless design choices will stay true to their name and last for years to come. Some popular yet timeless choices include: neutral color palettes, hardwood floors, granite or quartz countertops, built-in shelving, and classic lighting fixtures.

Flexible Storage Solutions

Consider flexible storage solutions by implementing built-in storage in some of your rooms. By selecting flexible storage solutions from the start, you are making a choice that will continue to serve you well for years to come, ultimately saving both time and money. Whether adjusting to a growing family, shifting work needs, or new hobbies, flexible storage accommodates these shifts without the need for constant replacements.

Quality Materials

Invest in quality materials that will hold up to long-term wear and tear. At Meinhart Homes, we use high-quality materials that are sure to withstand the test of time and your changing family.

Outdoor Living Spaces

Design your outdoor spaces to accommodate people of all ages, ensuring that various family activities can be enjoyed together in a welcoming and versatile environment. Consider adding features like wide pathways for easy walking access, comfortable seating areas, and well-lit areas for evening entertainment, all contributing to a space that encourages family bonding and relaxation.

Consider Future Accessibility

Think about the needs of aging family members with features like wider doorways or a bedroom on the main floor, which may be helpful down the line.

Involve the Family

When planning a custom home build, it’s wise to involve family members in the decision-making process to ensure that the design caters to everyone’s individual needs and preferences, both now and in the future. This inclusive approach helps understand each family member’s unique requirements, such as specific room layouts, accessibility considerations, or hobby-related spaces.
