Continued from Finding the Perfect Home: Part 1
How many bedrooms do you need for your home? You will need to make this consideration based on the number of people who are staying with you. Typically, a lot of people missed out on this point due to budget and location, and the normal, average number of bedrooms which a home has is three. Is it enough for you?
The decision can be very personal. One couple, for example, decided that they will need a bedroom for themselves, a bedroom for the wife’s mom, a room where the couple may share as a home office for the husband and a study for the wife, and of course a couple of bedrooms for the children. Also, the husband also promised a special prayers room for the wife due to the different deities which they worship in terms of religious needs. You may imagine that this couple may need a bungalow which has at least five rooms, and the AV room converted into the prayer room for the wife.
This seem to be trivial, but in reality, it may mean a lot in the long run. You may have children who need to get to school, clashing their bathroom times with you when you need to rush for work. If you have only one bathroom, you need to time yourselves very well just to be sure that your child and you will not be late for school or for work. Also, couples might even be fighting with each other each morning for the use of the bathroom, which is not going to be healthy for the relationship in the long run.
Number of Storeys
Usually, single storey homes in Malaysia has a standard of three, maximum four, bedrooms, with the option of probably two bathrooms. For houses which are two storeys or more, there can be the options of up to, maybe five bedrooms. Sometimes, you might want to be sure that you have a proper bedroom (not a maid’s bedroom) on the ground floor if you have elderly parents living with you, if your house is two or three storeys high.
These ideals which will make your perfect home should be thought about, and carefully decided when you search for a house or apartment for sale. Let’s not shortchange yourself in the process.
