I think that is the most common question I hear when I speak to new construction homeowners. New home buyers are a lot like the average new business owner. They are in a position where they are creating an investment, but because their business is so new, they don’t know how to take advantage of the right opportunities. I’m always surprised how many times I see new construction homes with little or no carpet or paint, which would have made the home feel like a home.
The problem with too few surfaces is that it means that the overall look of the home is not great. Also, too many surfaces means that the number of people inside the house will be limited and that can be a good thing or bad thing. If there is little or no carpet, then you are restricting the amount of furniture you can have inside the home. If you want to have a large family, it makes sense to have lots of chairs and couches inside the home.
If you want to have a home that is comfortable, stylish, and welcoming then it is much better to have a large number of surfaces. The bigger the surface the more “stuff” you can have, both inside and out. When you have a larger number of surfaces, then the more furniture you can have, so your home will be comfortable and elegant.
When a person wants to have a home that is comfortable and elegant, it is best to have a large number of surfaces. The larger the surface, the more stuff you can have inside, the more comfortable and the more welcoming the home will be.
