Planning, Space

Planning the design and layout of your new home is very important and requires time and consideration.
A key tip that we have picked up along the way is to think about how your requirements will change over the coming years. Consider how space will need to be planned and used while a family grows. Think about how the needs of a family will change as children get bigger and grow older. Having space for kids to have their friends over can be very important ..... if their friends are comfortable around you when they are young they will be more likely to hang out in the house as they grow through their teens, and this will be important as you want to know where they are and who they are socialising with.
Children will also need extra space to study as they get older. It can be a good idea to have a space for younger kids to call their playroom, which can evolve into a teenage hang-out area, and then become part of your own living space.
