How Much House Does Your Family Really Need?

floorplan 1-01

Discover the floorplan that suits you best

If you’ve been searching for a new Meridian area home, then you know that “square footage” is one of the first topics many realtors want to discuss. It’s an important consideration, but determining that magic number can be a challenge! How do you balance your family’s needs with your “new home wish list” to decide upon an ideal size? Grab a pen and paper and give some thought to these factors:

Consider your lifestyle

Begin by asking yourself some questions about your family’s regular pastimes. Do you like to entertain company? What about overnight guests? Do you need a home office or room to accommodate an RV? Are cozy bedrooms okay, while a generous gourmet kitchen is a must? Examining your family’s preferences can help you begin to clarify the parameters of your new home.

Estimate your future needs

Households are always evolving, so it’s helpful to remember that what’s comfortable for you today might not be ideal tomorrow.  Will you be starting a family soon or making yours larger? Will you need to care for an aging parent or in-law? Do you have adult kids who might return to the nest? Weighing the possibility of these future changes can help you identify your space requirements.

Think about your priorities

More square footage means more commitment. Larger homes require increased time and income devoted to cleaning, yardwork, snow removal, and other upkeep – and don’t forget that you’ll need to invest in heating those square feet in the winter and cooling them in the summer. If you enjoy managing household tasks and you have resources at the ready, a larger house could be a great choice for your family.

Focus on function

Ultimately, your home’s usability is more important than its size; some of today’s mini-mansions offer the same amount of livable space as smaller layouts.  Search for a tried-and-true floorplan that makes the most of every square inch, and take advantage of opportunities to adapt specific features. With a thoughtfully-designed floorplan that’s tailored to fit your family, you might be comfortable in fewer square feet than you originally estimated.

Need more practical tips for discovering a new Meridian area home that’s just right for you?  Visit the Floorplans page at mycolemanhome.com! You’ll find twenty-six smart, family-tested layouts and an Interactive Floorplan Tool that lets you personalize each one with the features you love. And if you’ve got questions or need some help, reach out to our Team of Experts! They’ll be glad to provide more details, or schedule a tour at our communities.

Finish & Feature Spotlight — Kitchen Countertops

kitchen countertops 1-01

Select the Surface That’s Right for You

If you’re making selections for your brand new Meridian home, you know that choosing a kitchen countertop can be a challenge! Countertops experience regular exposure to heat, moisture, sharp knives, and more, so you want a surface that’s durable, but also one that complements your décor and your budget.  Here’s a quick run-down of three of the most popular countertop options – granite, quartz and laminate.

kitchen countertops 2

From the Quarry to Your Kitchen:  Granite Countertops

With a gleaming surface and variegated hues, granite makes an elegant statement in any kitchen! Granite is quarried from the earth in enormous chunks and then cut and polished into countertop slabs to create a surface that offers natural style and strength. Inherent variations in color and texture give each stone a unique charm, so remember that the samples you see will differ slightly from the countertop you receive. Here are some defining characteristics of countertops made from granite:

  • Granite offers a durable, heat-resistant surface and a classic beauty that complements any décor.
  • Since stone is naturally porous, granite countertops need to be sealed at installation and require regular re-sealing to maintain their appearance and integrity.

kitchen countertops 3

Engineered to Endure:  Quartz Countertops

Unlike granite slabs which are mined from the ground, quartz countertops are created in a factory. The primary ingredient is ground quartzite – one of the hardest minerals on earth – along with resins and colorants. Quartz countertops offer the look and feel of natural stone, but because they are engineered, they come in a wide variety of uniform colors and textures. Here are some things to remember about quartz countertops:

  • They are a great choice for homeowners who want the strength and beauty of stone along with the color consistency of a factory product.
  • Quartz countertops are heat and stain resistant and require no sealant — but remember to avoid abrasive cleansers.

kitchen countertops 4

Versatile and Value-Friendly:  Laminate Countertops

Laminate countertops are constructed of resin covering plywood or particleboard, and today’s technology means they’re available in more color and texture options than ever before. Laminate is heat, stain and scratch-resistant, and requires virtually no maintenance. It’s a great option for homeowners who want a particular color at a budget-friendly price! Here are some considerations when choosing a laminate surface:

  • Be careful with sharp knives or hot pans, as scorching, deep scratches or cracks in laminate cannot be repaired.
  • Consider countertop edging in a contrasting woodgrain, to add variety and style.
