Is there such thing as too much room inside your home? Well it seems there is – and that number isn’t magically generated by factors of inhabitants. It’s easy to get caught in the numbers and complicated formulas offered online and elsewhere; however, choosing a home should be a decision of practicality, not overstrung calculation.

Plan for the future

1,500 square feet in an open-concept floor plan looks and operates much differently than the same space in compartmentalized rooms. For this reason, home spaces are better looked upon as templates for your family and needs both now and in the future. For example, a family of four should weed out any homes that do not have ample room for two children. Planning for your future needs is paramount to ensuring you don’t outgrow your home.

Be conservative, in reason

This is the most difficult part of choosing home size. You want to strike a balance in functionality while still allowing yourself the room you need. With that said, being conservative in your size choice can save you money upfront and overtime because of energy costs.

Consider all your needs

Family needs come first but storage comes in second to footage in homes. Your mileage may vary depending on the home’s configuration, but having adequate space to store your belongings and comfortably fit furniture is important too. What’s equally important to storage is overall comfort level throughout the home. Think about yourself too, and how much personal space you may need to function on a day-to-day basis. It’s not selfish to give yourself a game room, it’s healthy!
