Question: When you think of your ideal home, what does it look like? Do you think in terms of aesthetics? For instance, yellow siding, Victorian style, pretty windows and doors.... Do you think in terms of features? Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, large yard.... Or is it all about location? In the country, near a park, in the middle of a bustling city....
I must admit, when we were housing hunting about three years ago, I thought of an ideal house almost entirely in terms of features: We need to have two bathrooms. We should have an enclosed front porch. Etc.
Looking back on this, I wonder if this perspective comes from only ever being a renter. As when you're renting, space is the thing that you're concerned most about: how much room are we getting in relation to how much rent we're forking out each month?
Now, while I love the interior space that we have - and our features - I think about houses almost entirely in terms of aesthetics. Of course, with the market such as it is, we won't be selling + buying anytime soon. But it is something that may affect the choice we make whenever we do end up moving.
What about you??
