Your Home Your Decision!
We all have heard about the “5 Things You Need To Know before Building a Home”, the internet is full of websites with these little reminders. But how do we know exactly what are those five things that you need to keep in mind. After all it all depends from person to but we can safely say that we are here to tell you exactly what you need to know.
To begin with your budget matters a lot, you need to know exactly how much are you willing to spend. Once your numbers are in order only then you can proceed onto the next step. The initial budget that you plan to spend, you always have to keep some extra cash at hand in case the cost during the construction rises at anytime. A safe keeping, just so you know that you will not run out of cash.
After your numbers are decided, you need to find a very reliable and reputable architect. One who understands what you need and one who knows how to work with your given budget. The architect can come up with solutions to your requirements without exceeding your given budget. So find one that you believe would be the best in line.
We never know when hard times strike or what circumstances we might ourselves in later in life. So you have to build a house keeping in mind resale. Now the resale value of your home is something to work over, it’s not the matter of a simple construction. You need to add in rooms, bathrooms along with other things such as laundries, garages, heating and cooling systems and also something that is energy efficient.
It is essential to have a green place at your home, as it not only helps regulate the oxygen but all keeps the heat away. A beautifully landscaped garden or backyard is something that you should be looking for. In summers it should provide you with shade, a place for the kids to play and have your evening tea and in winters to share coffees and have little get together with friends and family.
Finally, the last part of the whole home, is taking in little notes with your builder or your architect as to what still needs to be done and what is missing. What should be added and what is suppose to be removed.
With these simple little things you should be ready with the basic info you need to get started on your dream home. This way you would know what are you looking at what input you would have in your dream home.
A Different Concept
It is not necessary to think that you live in Pakistan and you can not have something that comes from a UK or a USA magazine. The concept of people wanting things for their home these days has changed dramatically. People are more now into westren ideas and standards of constructing homes. Ideas are evolving with personal touches hence creating a whole new look.
Clients as we call them are now more open to options that will last for the next 5 years to come, after all it is not easy renovating or remodelling a home every other year or so. So now the concept of sunrooms, solariums, garden spaces and back yards are more in than anything else. People want to make the most of the space they have usually its 1 kanal or 2. And if you have a clever architect then that space can be fitted in with these ideas as well. It’s all about who you are paying and for what, one thing I can assure you of is @ Amer Adnan Associates we first listen to the concept of a home from your point fo view. We know this is probably a one time opportunity for you and you want it to be the best. So why not?
There are just some things you have to keep in mind and discuss with your architect so that he and you both understand where you are heading. You can grab a concept from any magazine or wesbite and work with your architect around it so that from a technical point of view its all possible and from a personal point of view its applicable as well.
Times, technology and wishes have a whole new meaning now which means anything you want can be possible now, you only have to work around it to make it a reality.

Even individual rooms are usually of the same colour, which till date is practiced quite a lot. But now a hanfdull of teens and some adults have started experimenting with colours to see what would work. We have to keep in mind that colours that we choose all have different impacts on our home. Some colours make a partiuclar place look twice in size and give a new and bolder look and some reduce the size of the place all together. Some colours get you hyper and some soothe the mind completely.
The colour White is mostly associated with purity, innocence, cleanliness, sense of space, neutrality and mourning (in some cultures/societies). Which does not mean that you have to associate your self with mourning but it cna be all the other things for you too.
Now on the other hand when we come to the colour black it is most associated with authority, power, strength, ilintelligence, thinning / slimming and death or mourning. Black also for a majority of the people can mean being in a bleak and depressing mood. But lately it has come into notice that the youth is more into the colour black for the peace it provides them and the thinking ability it gives them.
The colour grey stands out to be more neutral, timeless and no non sense and practical colour. It can give you the serious edge you look for or simple the plainness you might seek.
The Color Red has the most intense effect ever known for a colour, its love, romance, gentle, warmth, comfort, energy, excitement, intensity, life and blood for all most all the cultures around the world. It is mostly associated with happiness and positive hyperness.

The Color Blue is more the colour of a bachelor its calmness, serenity, cold, uncaring, wisdom, loyalty, truth, focused, and un-appetizing. We must keep in mind that like everything else colors have a nagtive impact too, but it depends on us which side we choose.
