Building a custom home is an exciting endeavor and one that requires planning to create a home that accommodates your family’s needs now and in the future. So what’s the best way to create a home that’s flexible enough for all of your family’s life stages?
One of the advantages of building a custom new Iowa home is that you can create rooms designed for flexible use. All Castle Pointe Homes are designed based on the four principles of Woman Centric Design: entertaining, storage, de-stressing and flexible living. Homes designed based on these principles will ensure that your home is built for your needs today as well as tomorrow.
Here are just a few of the ways that flexible design can help you create a home that your family will love for years to come:
Design Flexibility: After Children
One of the most common life stages for families is how to adjust to an empty nest once the children have moved out of the house. Building a custom home with flexible design rooms makes it easy to transition kids out of (and sometimes back into) your home with ease.
Secondary bedrooms that are designed with double doors or built in shelving can easily be converted into a home office, library or a crafter’s dream room. Secondary bedrooms that are designed with en suite baths become perfect guest or in-law suites.
Design Flexibility: Rethinking the Den
The den is one of the most flexible rooms in a new Iowa home. The versatility of a den allows for a study/extra-guest room combination, an enchanting reading nook or even a downstairs play room when kids are small. As children become teenagers you can convert the larger game room into an entertainment space with flat screen televisions, built in buffet serving area and a luxury bar.
Design Flexibility: A Home that Grows with You
The key to building a custom home that will grow with you and your family’s ever changing lives is flexibility. By designing floor plans and rooms that are easy to convert as your needs change over time, you will give your house extended functionality and lower remodeling costs down the road.
