Keep Rooms Flexible
Does your home have a unique specialty room like this relaxing plant sanctuary/lounge room? No one’s saying you need to give up your ‘special place,’ but it’s important to hold back a little. Too much customization can be a problem if you ever plan to sell your home, so try not to overdo it. Things like hardwood floors, wiring for cable, phone and DSL, and plenty of windows are good ways to customize while keeping the room versatile. Another idea is to make the space one that can easily be converted into a guest suite, studio, family room or a den.
