There can be few things worse than getting to the end of your restoration project and only then realizing that you have forgotten an important feature that could enhance your project’s overall effect and finish.
In fact, it is far better to try and include as much as possible when you are in the planning stages and remove ideas that you either have no room for (or simply cannot afford) as you go along.
#1 Feature kitchen with top gadgets

For instance, having a feature kitchen to focus your home life around is incredibly desirable, but finding that you have not left space for a desirable gadget can be frustrating. Modern kitchens, for instance, are now being designed with a tech garage to house additional kitchen gadgets that may not be in use all the time or, for that matter, take up too much counter space.
If your new kitchen lacks this area, you are likely to have an overly cluttered kitchen – which never looks attractive, regardless of how new or in fashion it is.
#2 Outdoor pool area
If you have a medium to large backyard area, incorporating a heated outdoor pool could provide your outdoor space with a space that everyone can enjoy. If you use the right contractors to create it, it won’t be cheap, but it is vital that it is done properly to reduce future maintenance costs.
This is because only professional pool installers will have access to suppliers such as Texas Pool Supply, who offer only the best products on the market. Installing or using lesser quality products just because they are cheaper will no doubt cost you more in the long run as they are more likely to stop working or be less reliable.
#3 Plenty of parking for visitors
If your property has the room to install off-road parking, then incorporating this into your design is a good idea. Providing your guests with safe parking choices and not causing congestion issues along your road or, for that matter, issues with your neighbors is good for everyone.
Plenty of options are available to you as to the fabric of your parking area, depending on how much you can afford and how hard-wearing you require your parking area to be. It is a good idea to speak to multiple companies before deciding on which is best for you and suits your needs the most, as well as which products offer the best aesthetically pleasing finish to the front of your property.
So, to wrap it all up
You likely already have a wishlist that you would like to incorporate into your restoration project. However, as most restoration projects take time, it is a good idea to keep an eye on new trends as and when they happen, so you can ensure that your project isn’t lacking in any important touches. You should also keep in mind how you would like the project to look when it is finished and what certain areas will be used for.
A large backyard may seem like a good idea, but when the only time it gets used is when the mower comes out, it can make it seem more like wasted space. On the other hand, installing a heated pool could mean it is rarely empty and used to its fullest. Of course, for this, you should also consider the convenience of supplying parking facilities close to your property for yourself and your guests.
