Defining Your Dream Home

What does your dream home look like? Does it have a fireplace? A big space for entertaining? Extra room as you work from home? Add it all to your wish list as you build a home that checks off all your must-haves. Below are several home design and decorating ideas  to use as inspiration.

Must-have: Serene spaces

Enjoy a quieter evening at home thanks to spray foam insulation, which forms a barrier between the outside and inside of the house. It insulates the home and helps maintain an even temperature, saving you on bills.

Must-have: Open and airy floorplan 

An open floorplan can give your home an airy feeling and keep you connected to your family (and the TV), even if you’re in the kitchen cooking. Do you dream of being cozy by a fireplace as you watch your favorite show? Make sure to add that to your dream home’s wish list.

Must-have: Stylish and functional kitchen 

The kitchen is the center of the home for most families. So if you enjoy company while cooking, a kitchen island provides extra prep space and additional seating for family and friends. Double-stacked cabinets are great if you love to entertain and need more storage space. Need more inspiration? Check out the latest kitchen design trends!

Must-have: Dining area for your lifestyle 

Whether you’re sharing a delicious meal with a few close friends or a romantic candlelit dinner with your spouse, the dining room is a crucial part of the home that connects people. Choose between a walled-off space for a formal, more intimate feel or an open dining room that flows into the kitchen and other living areas for a more casual feel.

Must-have: Dreamy bedrooms 

Your bedroom doesn’t just have to be a room to sleep in. If you dream of enjoying a quiet cup of coffee in the morning, make sure your new bedroom has space to add a seating area for a relaxing retreat.

Must-have: Ease and convenience 

Do you need a quiet space to be able to work from home? A storage room to keep items organized? Consider the features that will make your life easier. Ever dream of having a space to entertain and shake up those cocktails? Take your home to the next level with a wet bar, complete with a minifridge and cabinets for all the essentials.

Must-have: Spa-inspired bathrooms 

Imagine coming home to relax in the tub with a glass of wine and a good book after work. You can get that in-home spa with a big bathtub in addition to a shower. A walk-in closet connected to the bathroom gives you plenty of space as you get ready in the morning.

Must-have: Outdoor spaces and amenities

If you’ve always wanted to live in a neighborhood where you could host barbecues and entertain, Meritage Homes offers community amenities such as outdoor spaces with grills and gorgeous seating areas for all your family members and friends to enjoy. Or, if you want to throw a small birthday or dinner party, use the indoor communal space. If you prefer to use your own backyard to host gatherings, make sure to add an outdoor grilling area and leave room for a pool, so you can have your own outdoor oasis.
