If you had told me five or so years ago that I would look at random houses for fun I would have said you were insane. Most of the ones I like looking at are way out of my price range and more than I would ever be able to afford in this lifetime. Although those houses are honestly way too big unless you have like 20 people living there. I’ve realized that I’m drawn to houses with specific qualities.
Open floor plans
I’ve found I love the houses that have the living room/ dining room/ kitchen all as one. I love the openness that comes with it and it just seems like you can breathe.
Honestly every time I see one with giant floor to ceiling windows I just want to roll out my yoga mat and do yoga in front of it. I would love it if this was in one of the bedrooms because I do want an office/ library space and it’d be so nice to have a yoga area next to it.
I’m just going to keep going with this open space idea because have you ever looked at a place that has cathedral ceilings? Gorgeous. And spacious and perfect.
Loft walkways or rooms
This goes along with the cathedral ceilings. Just being able to look down on the openness is amazing. It just adds an extra something to a house.
This is one of those things I’ll eventually do when I get a house and it’ll just have to grow slowly but I would love to have a stationary bike, some weights, a pull-up bar.
I mean did anyone really think this wasn’t going to make the list? Do I even have to explain myself? Although I would like my future library be 90% read… at least.
I actually don’t want a woodburning one because that would be the fastest way to burn my dream house to the ground but a nice electric one would be perfect.
Balcony or sundeck
The more I think about this the more I would love a sundeck. I love being outside but I also hate bugs and laying on the ground is only comfortable for so long. This way I’d get the fresh air and the comfort level of being indoors.
Again…. do I have to explain? Also I hate shoveling.
Very modern design
I actually keep going back and forth between a modern design and a rustic design. Both are amazing in their own ways. A modern design is very clean and minimalist so I’d keep it clean (maybe) but a rustic design would be so comfy and relaxing and would be exactly what I want at the end of a long day at work.
