New Home Construction in St. Louis Offers the Right-Sized Residence for Your Family in Flux

One of the most consistent aspects of modern family life is that things are always changing. As your circumstances fluctuate, you may find that your current home is no longer the right size for yourneeds. Thankfully, professional builders such as the Rolwes Company specialize in accommodating dynamic families. Whether you need less space, more room to grow or simply a different layout that is arranged in a refreshing way — new home construction in St. Louis is presenting an abundance of buyer opportunities. 

As you assess your current circumstances, consider which of the following ideas addresses your needs. You can be “resizing” your living situation to match changing lifestyles, “upsizing” for an expanding family, or “downsizing” to eliminate unneeded square footage from your household equation. Your unique situation can define your layout choices for a new home that perfectly accommodates your lifestyle. 

Find the Right Fit

“Rightsizing” is all about assessing your short-term and long-term living needs. If your ideal residence includes a home office, plenty of storage, a first floor master bedroom, a garage big enough for three vehicles — now is the time to determine these factors and make them part of your qualification criteria for a new home.

Perhaps you have acquired a wealth of clutter over the years and you plan on eliminating the storage burden. Resizing can help you purge unnecessary items by simply allotting less room for storage. If you anticipate major household or lifestyle changes, perhaps a drastic transition in square footage is in order. 

Go Big to Fit More

If your household is growing with more on the way, “upsizing” is an excellent strategy for accommodating a large family. You can optimize your new home construction in St. Louisby choosing a design with enough bedrooms for numerous children, and perhaps a layout that includes living quarters for in-laws, dependents or frequent visitors. 

Plenty of people in the home means a large kitchen and spacious common areas. Consider an open floor plan for a lifestyle that will accommodate activity and open communication, one that favors quality family time for meals, weekends, evenings and holidays. 

Pare Down for Practicality

Changing lifestyles can also include “downsizing” — a sensible option when teenagers are going off to college or career changes are afoot. If a large floor plan is unnecessary, you can choose a layout with less square footage so that you are not heating, cooling and paying for unused space. 

In the event that professional obligations present frequent travel, perhaps a compact, energy efficient design is ideal rather than an expansive square footage, large living areas and multiple bedrooms.

As your lifestyle changes, so too does the ideal size home for your circumstances. Rolwes Company offers a realm of choices within 17 communities in and around the St. Louis area. With a collection of 22 home styles designed to accomodate every level of living, new home buyers are sure to find the right fit in a new home.
