It is very common for people who live in the same residence year after year to begin imagining their home looking a different way. Some might envision their bathroom being a different color, or a different layout, or even a brand new look altogether. Others might daydream about having a bigger kitchen. I mean, who couldn’t use a little more counter space and a few more cabinets? Or perhaps one might consider replacing their wooden floors with some pearl white granite or dark blue tiles? The truth is, seeing the same thing over and over year after year can eventually become dull and boring. So, in order to liven things up and keep the excitement flowing we often try new things to help stimulate our minds and satisfy our need to see change.
Although, most of us might enjoy seeing a change in the scenery around our home, it’s also very important to understand the pros and cons of building your dream home.
