Features of a good home
A good home presents to its occupant’s satisfaction without factoring in the locality or the vicinity of the home. A home is not a house; a house becomes a home when it fulfills its owner’s satisfaction and gives them a reason to go home at the end of the day schedule away from home. There are some of the essential elements that qualify and need to find a place at the top of your home shopping list.
1. Single level houses
Single level houses are popular because of their ease of reach without the need for a staircase to reach the upper storeys. Everything is within reach, especially when performing minor home repairs. It is also easy to regulate room temperatures in a single level house. It is an ideal choice for those who wish to spend their retirement and aging people because staircases are difficult to climb.
2. Nine-foot ceilings
A nine-foot ceiling is far better than eight-foot ceiling homes, the amount of lighting and airflow is sufficient for its occupants. It also creates a comfortable atmosphere to relax in.
3. South exposure
A south exposure of a home, especially during the winter season helps let in the sunshine which leads to heating free from cost. The lighting from the sunshine enhances the moods of the home occupants. On the other hand, during summertime, planting trees against windows will help shield the room and keep it cool as well as improve the air quality flowing in.
4. Outdoor living space
It is healthy and enjoyable to have your living space outdoors. Spending some of your time outdoors helps reduce stress levels. Homes with outdoor space tend to fetch more money for their owners when listed than those without. Adding a patio or a deck to your home will earn you more money than all-rounded space living rooms.
5. Maximized insulation
By maximising insulation in your home, you reduce the amount of energy needed to keep indoor temperatures constant. You will feel comfortable staying in a well-insulated room. The return on investment of your home insulation is easily realised.
