Friday Facts: 7 Things That Will Fill You With Buyers Remorse

Excerpts from an article by Angela Colley in

  1. Don’t go big, just go home: What rooms will you actually use? Big means appropriate furniture, higher utility bills and a lot of space to clean.
  2. Don’t get boxed in: Does the house style allow for future expansion?
  3. Don’t let your stairs become an uphill battle: Think of how you’ll use the space. Where’s the laundry?
  4. Get off the island …maybe. Kitchen islands can be a mistake if you don’t take your “work triangle” into account.
  5. Pay attention to what’s missing: There’s a trend to eliminate the bathtub in favor of just a shower. Will you want a nice long soak at days end?
  6. Pools may not be so cool…if you can’t afford the maintenance expense.

Don’t fall for fads … Today’s popular ice white appliances and Edison bulb light are yesterday’s saloon doors and brass hardware.
