My Ideal Dream Home

I’m saving up to buy a new house, and designing my dream home has become a new hobby for me. My wife and I are hoping to move out of our apartment soon, and in the meantime, I’ve taken the liberty to indulge in my wildest home design fantasies. There are plenty of homes around the United States that come with many more features than I could ever imagine. I won’t be able to afford those homes anytime soon, but that doesn’t mean I can’t use my imagination to create the ideal dwelling.

For starters, I want a beautiful lawn with lots of trees, exotic plants, and a healthy, natural vibe. I found a useful website about landscaping that discusses some of the things you need to contemplate. I didn’t even think to consider how landscaping the yard might influence my decision on what type of grass I might plant. My house wouldn’t get a lot of sunshine because of the large trees in the yard, so I’ll need to landscape using a grass that can withstand a lot of shade.

The front of my dream house will have two enormous statues of lions and a horseshoe driveway. I want lots of windows facing the north and south, so I can leave the blinds open all the time without too much sun. My bedroom windows should face the east. I love waking up naturally to sunshine, and it helps me get the day started on a good note. The apartment I’m currently staying in only has one window in the bedroom, and I feel like I’m living in a cave! A word to the wise: never live in an apartment that only has windows facing the north or south.

Another essential feature in my dream house is the kitchen. My wife and I love to cook, and we are always showing off by making amazing meals. I want to have a gas stove that has at least six burners, a high-quality ventilation hood, and two ovens. I’ve found the secret to baking is not overloading the oven with too much food. If there are too many dishes in the oven, the moisture levels will be off, and the food doesn’t turn out as good.

I’d like to have a deep sink with a partition down the middle, made of stainless steel of course. My current sink is white porcelain, and I have to clean it regularly to remove tiny scratches on the surface. It’s a minor issue, but it still bothers me. I plan on having stainless steel for all of my kitchen appliances.

The last thing my dream home needs is a dedicated space that I can call my own. I enjoy reading and playing guitar, and it would be nice to have a creative space where I can escape inside my own home. It might take me a long time to be in a financial position to afford all of these things, but that’s why I’m saving early. One day, I hope to have a house like this that my wife and I can call our own.
