The decision to purchase a house is one of the biggest ones you’ll make in your life. So, you’ve probably wondered what it is about certain properties that makes them so desirable and, therefore, more expensive than others? Well wonder no more because we are here to break down the characteristics of what we at Dream Design Property dub “dream property”.
We cover everything from proximity to public transport and high-tech entertainment options, through to the size of backyards or proximity to award-winning schools. All this knowledge is sure to get you closer than ever before (pun intended) to finding your dream property.
Take a look at our infographic below to find out what you need to consider when buying your next property.
To start with, it goes without saying that your dream house needs a garage. How else are you going to protect valuables such as bikes or cars? Or simply keep them clean if it’s raining outside? This is especially important for those of us living in the UK where it rains most of the time and we can’t stand our vehicles getting dirty. A garage also means there’s room for both indoor and external activities.
It might not be top of everyone’s wishlist but how about a wetroom in your dream property? What is a wetroom, I hear you ask. Well, for those who don’t know a wetroom is when you have a shower or bath in your room. You don’t need to take up any space by installing a shower – it’s all in the room. What’s more is that it makes cleaning the whole bathroom easier because you can clean more efficiently and effectively. Perfect for people with busy lives!
It isn’t just bathrooms where wetrooms come into their own; they are also great for those with kids who need a bath, but parents want to avoid the slippery floors that can sometimes occur with the use of a bath tub. It also works well for anyone who feels they struggle to balance when taking a shower.
Keeping the house smelling fresh is one of the hardest things to do. Undoubtedly, a good air-freshener is a must, but what about flowers or fruit trees? Do you want to hang something from your wall that makes for a nice decoration without adding clutter? Well, if so then plant them there. Gardening is another way of keeping your dream property smelling fresh and natural.
Both animals and plants are great ways of decorating a house; however, animals can be expensive. That’s why it’s important that the type of pet you choose is suited to the location as well as its size and personality. Does the location allow for a pet? Think about what the pet will have to come in contact with. Pets can spread illnesses – especially if your pet is small, or allergic to certain things.
When it comes to decorating it’s important that you choose colours that suit you and not everyone else. It’s nice when everyone mixes and matches their furniture but not so nice when it gets too noisy! It’s all down to personal choice as to whether you want a window seat on your windowsill or not.
