Small Home Changes Can Improve Your Family's Health

My husband and I both suffer from allergies and asthma and, unfortunately, two of our children inherited our health problems. Living with both can be a struggle, but we take every step we can to keep our family healthy. One spring, when our seasonal allergies were especially bad, we decided to finally have our carpeting replaced with natural tile flooring and that was a great decision. Even though it seemed like we vacuumed constantly, I guess our carpets harbored more dust and mites than we ever expected! Since then, we have invested in other upgrades to improve our family's health, including antimicrobial kitchen counter tops. I enjoy helping others, so I decided to start a blog to share what we have learned about home upgrades and renovations. I plan to post on a variety of topics, so there will be something of interest to everyone!

A Couple Of Reasons To Use A Custom Home Builder For Your Next House

If you have decided that you want to have your home built, you probably have ideas for what you want in the house. While you can go to a general home builder and look through the different models they build, they might not give you everything you want. You should not have to settle for something that does not fit all your requirements just because they don't have the right blueprints, or they are only comfortable building things they have built before. You can avoid this when you go to a custom home builder. While the process may take a little longer, you will be much happier with the end result and less likely to look for a new place in a few years. Here are just a few of the benefits you get when you have the place built to fit your dreams.

Rooms the Way You Want Them

Some people like to have large kitchens for big family meals while others may want a smaller kitchen but a really big living room. You choose how big each room is going to be and how they are arranged in the house to fit your needs. You don't need to have the dining area next to the kitchen or the bedrooms all in one area if you don't want them that way. You figure out the best way to set up your home and then have the builder and architect create the plans for the construction.

Attention to Details

Most regular home builders will give you a few options for flooring, cabinetry, and walls. These items come in a variety of different packages available at different costs. However, you do not get to go through the different stores to pick out what you want. When you use a custom home builder, you get to customize everything. While they are building the shell, go to a flooring store and find the different styles and types you want for each room. You can have one room all ceramic tile, another room done with a solid wood floor, and different types of carpeting for the bedrooms if you like. Do the same thing with cabinets and their handles if you want. There is no need to have all the rooms painted when you can choose to have real wood paneling or choose to go with a stone accent wall in the living room.

When you decide to have a home built, go ahead and dream a bit. Then, have your dream become a reality.
