HR Deserves A Better Reputation

Hello, my name is Pamela Flowers. I am very glad you have found my website focused on HR. I have always felt that HR departments get a bad reputation. There are some HR departments that make life difficult for the workforce, but this doesn't have to be the case. I have stayed abreast on the changing world of HR and it is really amazing how some HR departments are training employees and the creative ways that they recognize the achievements of these employees. So in defense of HR, I have decided to create a blog that covers all the great work they often do.

Future Perspective: Planning Your Custom Home with a Focus on the Future

Business Blog

Having a home custom-designed is the only way to truly create your dream home. Unfortunately, one of the common mistakes people make when designing a custom home is only planning for the here and now. Taking the future into consideration when having a home custom-made will help you enjoy your home now and in the future.

Pick your passion

What is the one area of your dream home you cannot imagine living without? Is it a huge kitchen, a unique home office, or a lavish home gym? Allotting plenty of money in your design and building budget for the one thing you want most will go a long way in keeping you satisfied with your home now and in the future.

Plan wisely

Designing a great home plan is not something you can rush. Look for ideas, sketch plans, make changes, and do not decide on a final plan until you are sure it is what you want. You also need to consider the future when sketching out your design.

Several levels may seem like a great idea now, but they can be difficult to navigate as you age. A spare room may not seem necessary now but it may come in handy if you need to care for aging parents in the future. Homes that are built with multiple architectural features can be pretty, but replacing the roof in a home with lots of nooks and crannies can get expensive in the future.

Be willing to compromise

Unless you have unlimited funds, most homeowners will need to find a few areas they are willing to compromise on to stay within their budget. Find the few areas you will be willing to compromise on by listing what is most important and what is least important to you in a home layout and design. This will help you narrow down your options.

Too much space is better than too little

Erring in regard to how much space you need will be a mistake that is hard to correct later. It is best to design your home with a little extra space now. As your family structure changes, you can always find additional uses for unused bedrooms or leftover space.

Planning for the future may not seem that important when you are designing your dream home now, but it can make a difference in how well your home works for you as your family structure changes and you age. Unless you are planning to sell your home one day, designing a home that will work well for you throughout the course of your life can save you money later.
