BUILDING TIPS  This is a view of my kitchen not often seen, it’s just not as “sexy” 😂 however I get a lot of DMs about what I wish I knew before building and this view is a perfect example (for reference this is my 4th home, 2nd build, but we renovated the other two so definitely not new to this). TIPS:
1. Know what you want your home to look like. There is a difference between what you like and appreciate and what you want to wake up to every day, it’s important to know the difference to avoid costly mistakes. An interior designer can help with this.
2. Determine a budget. Make it realistic and then stick to it. Do this BEFORE you start picking out stuff with the marble you “have to have”
3. Make a list of wants, must haves and nice to haves. There’s a difference between these and it will save you going over budget if you know these things in advance, if you need to cut you cut the nice to haves.
4. Determine what is structural or would be hard to do after building, think layout, walls etc (for us cabinets to the ceiling was a must have to give us the kitchen look we wanted and would have had to replace them all after the fact to get them after closing) do these things when feasible
5. Things you could save on or are easy to acccomplish later is a good place to save. (Our backsplash was done after closing and through our builder it would have cost 3x as much)
6. Remember it’s your home and the only rules that apply are your own. 🖤
