Houston Custom Home Design: What You Need to Know


If you are in the process of creating your ideal living space, including renovating or building a unique Houston custom home, you are probably overwhelmed with design ideas. From the outdoor décor to the perfect dining room furniture, it is not only difficult to choose a starting point, but even more challenging to collect your thoughts and plans into one unified design plan. Houston custom home builder and designer Jonathon Casada has been forming luxurious homes for over forty years, and has some advice for homeowners starting on their design journey.

Set a Design Budget

You may not stick to it completely, but establishing an estimated budget at the beginning of your project gives you some guidelines on how much you can afford to spend. Consult with your custom home designer to determine a realistic budget for décor and design modifications.  In addition, figure out how much leeway is possible with the budget that you have set.
