    This question is difficult as there are so many designers and architects with different ideas. What I can say what all people agree on greed for space, solitude to work without interruptions, well-designed spaces which work together and plenty of storage. So this article is just a stab in the dark based on personal preference and nothing professional! Warning: coming from an unqualified amateur who just prefers natural materials over plastics and who also has small children crazy enough to paint walls to sleep. Some pointers: So if you're looking for design ideas, here's my totally uninformed opinion.

    The idea of what home design ideas are must varies from person to person. It is important to focus on the needs of the individual rather than be swayed by popular trends. Keep in mind that homeownership costs are one solid indication of just how much space you can afford-not to mention, where "home design" should be emphasized! Designers recommend not spending more than 30% of your gross income on owning a home. For many people, even renting or staying with family may be more viable an option if freeing up monthly resources for other endeavors prove preferable over accruing this amount of debt. Focusing on lessening clutter creates open spaces for decluttering both your house and life!

    Every home is different and every homeowner needs to take into account a large number of factors, but a general design idea can be helpful. One thing to consider here is the lot type. Building a three-story house on an irregularly shaped lot with little parking might not be feasible, but you could build the same house on a level vacant lot with plenty of off-street parking. The most important design decision? Location relative to public amenities such as schools, commercial districts, and parks. Inexpensive subdivision homes that are very close together will lack any sense of community while larger homes built in areas near public amenities will feel more like living in one (LINK) (HERE).

    A high-end designer and author of the book "Designing Your Dream House," Trisha Knox offers up these must-have design ideas. Light colors - They create a feeling of space, openness and well-being. The sun should be able to penetrate rooms because natural light provides positive moods and can even improve skin tone (Eleanor Roosevelt's advice). Bright colors should only be used sparingly, while dark colors tend to create a sense of mystery or drama that suits some specific locations such as hallways. Protective layers - Whether it's preventing issues like mold and/or insects from entering your house and damaging your property, it is worth taking measures to protect from these potential problems.

    I linked a post on what home design trends to expect this year. Check out our latest article on what will be hot in home design in 2017. With homeownership rates at an all-time low, prospective buyers are starting to view renting properties as viable options for longer stays and more flexibility. As such, we can definitely expect that open floor plans and layouts that encourage flourishing family life will remain the norm when it comes to construction and renovation requests. Homeowners who spent time in their homes over the years have seen costs of living rise while incomes remained stagnant, which has put financial strain on America's middle class families who were already feeling stretched thin before the recession hit.

    It is important to remember that you will spend a third of your day in your home, and plan accordingly. That said, in general it's a good idea to create a living space that has an emphasis on keeping it simple and relaxing in the place where you spend most of your time. A few things include making sure there is plenty light with windows from all angles, paying attention to where the sun falls at different times of year when deciding what rooms should be or if placing landscape for privacy might be needed. Designers recommend incorporating textures with changing patterns for appeal, incorporate lighting with dimmers for intimate evenings and noise-free naps. Lastly but not least - do not forget about pets!
