Design elements to look for when buying a home

Part of the process of buying a home is finding one that you love. Once your budget and requirements are set, what follows is deciding which design elements you like and want in your house. Single family homes make a great choice when buying a home because they give you the freedom to customize some of its spaces. 

You might decide on a contemporary home over a more traditional one or lean more towards minimalist design that prioritizes open spaces. Whatever your choice is, you should always focus on finding homes with useful design elements that will elevate your home and your overall home experience.

Here are some design elements to look for when buying a home:

Natural light

Most interiors make use of both natural daylight and artificial illumination, but focusing on finding a house that is open and that has strategically placed windows can be a huge benefit. Having natural light can completely transform any space. It can instantly make a space feel more open and spacious, but it also has measurable effects on mood. Centering design around natural light in your home makes it feel that much more comfortable, plus it has the added benefit of saving energy. 

Our in-house team of experts – architects, interior designers, and builders- consider natural light a crucial design element  in each Paradisa home because we understand how important it is. 

Open and flexible floor plans


One of the first things you must keep in mind when looking for a new home is the layout. Contemporary homes often offer open floor plans because they allow for flexibility and more design freedom. Buying a home often means living in it for a long time, so it’s important to find spaces and environments in which we can feel comfortable in.

At Paradisa we provide spaces that prioritize functionality because we understand that our clients’ needs can change over time. Some of these areas are often office spaces with closets and adjacent bathrooms for ease of a future office-to-bedroom conversion. We also often include utility rooms that feature both a gas and electric dryer hookup for a convenient change in appliance power sourcing.

A well-designed interior will often be a hassle-free home. 

High-grade material features


Remember that good design goes in hand with good workmanship. When buying a house, having great finished and high-grade material is a must. This is a way to make sure that the house has quality finishes that will elevate the overall design and show attention to detail. Our homes include designer-picked fixtures and finishes that create a balanced design that is both stylish and practical. 

Having luxurious countertops is one of the design trends that buyers often look for. At Paradisa we often include quartz countertops to our kitchens and bathrooms since they offer a great look, feel and overall superior functionality. Quartz countertops are less likely to crack or chip than granite which allows it to maintain its beauty through time. It is also scratch resistant and doesn’t stain as easily. 

Although some may be more important than others, all of these design elements inherently add to your living experience.
