Too much storage
You’ve always dreamed of having a spacious walk-in closet and a two door garage, but depending on the size of the rest of your home you may end up regretting your wish for extra storage space. Your plot of land may seem large, but once you tack on extra storage space to your floor plan that plot is going to get much smaller. Your big closets, basement, and garage will eat into space in your home, and your other rooms may have to lose some square feet in order to fit it all.
In a state where air conditioners are considered a necessity and not a luxury, it can be easy to take fresh air and air circulation for granted. Some people choose to have certain windows permanently sealed so that they can avoid robbery attempts. If you’re truly concerned about safety look into getting a home security system instead of sealing up your home. Sealed windows pose a significant safety hazard, especially in case of a house fire or a need to evacuate quickly.
There are countless home owners that envision having a sewing room, a home office, a game room, or a workout room, but sometimes those visions don’t turn out the way they want them to. Unless you’re an avid worker, exerciser, or gamer, you really don’t need an extra room solely devoted to that activity. It’s more likely for your game room to turn into a storage center for boxes and other possessions than it is to become an actual game room. Instead of designing a room to server one purpose, leave it open for other possible ideas.
