Deciding on a Home Design with Your Partner

When choosing a home design, you want to reflect a bit of your personality to it. But this can be a cause for arguments when you’re choosing a concept with your significant other. So, to avoid any misunderstanding, it’s important that both you and your partner sit down and talk about the things you want to have in your house design before approaching a contracting company in Phuket for a decoration project. This is especially important for couples with differing tastes.

Take notes

The first thing you need to do is jot down the things both you and your special someone need to agree on. These include the choosing the design and construction company, overall design of the house, number of floors, paint, etc.

Concede

There are things that you can concede on. For example, you might agree to have free rein in designing specific areas. If you dominate the kitchen, for example, you can ask your spouse to be able to freely choose how it will like. Similarly, if you’re building a garage, then your husband should have the same freedom to design it, since he’ll be using it more often than you would.

Consensus

Now, for common areas like the master bedroom, living area, dining room and family room, you need to come to a consensus. This means that you need to put each other’s needs and wants in mind when discussing the design with your construction contractor. That way, the overall look and feel of your home will reflect both your personalities.

It would be a waste of time and money if your building contractor will need to change from one concept to another in the middle of the construction project. This is why it’s extremely important to discuss it with your spouse before work on your new home begins.
