Whether you are shopping for a new house or planning to build your dream home, here are some great examples of what not to do. Sure, you want this next house to create the look and feel you love and but some just don’t have what it takes to be classic house.
Keep reading to find out why.
This not-to-be-missed post about what kind of house to shop for and what constitutes ‘good bones’ in an exterior or interior has been percolating in my head for months. I could not figure out the best way to articulate it, until today.
Sadly, I did not write this post. Joni from Cote de Texas did instead. However, it is so good, I want to make sure you don’t miss it because I was nodding Amen throughout the whole thing.
There are so many houses that I see with awkward and unnecessary high ceilings, corner fireplaces, rooms that make furniture arrangement a nightmare, in addition to windows that are impossible to cover. Who builds these houses I’d like to know?
Don’t get me started on exterior. In the west coast, our weather doesn’t require brick homes so instead we use stone and/or brick as decoration. There are so many multi-million dollar homes that I would never remotely consider past the exterior because there’s so much unnecessary decorative stone with clashing brick.
I totally agree with Joni when she says you should have your designer look at the house you’re about to buy to make sure you can create the look and feel you want. Many homeowners will say ‘I have had no problem decorating my last four houses, but this one has me totally stumped.’
Well, when you’re dealing with some of the design challenges Joni brings up in her post, it’s no wonder!
