The Must-Have Features when Building a Country Home

Country Home

Country HomeBuying a house is not always the wisest, most budget-friendly move. A common mistake of most first-time homebuyers is to look for a previously built home, remodel it or install additions on their own, thinking that they can save money by doing it. Sure, in some situations it is a great move. But, there are situations where you should build a quality system-built home instead.

As Manor Homes puts it: “When you build a new home, you want it to be yours – you want it to reflect your style, your taste and your personality. You also want it to function easily and comfortably around the way your family lives their day-to-day lives.” If you are planning to build a new home in the country, you need to know the must-have features before making that brave yet exciting decision.

Open Plan

To create the perfect country home, it needs an open plan living area. When achieving this style, the property must have a seamless transition between indoors and outdoors. It simply means spacious living room, dining room and kitchen. Country house plans seem bigger than they are to make the most of the view.

Rustic Appeal

A country home should provide a rustic, timeless appeal and energetic, youthful vibe. With sleek décors, crisp colours and smooth finishes, you can achieve the overall look of country style. It’s ideal to choose wooden furniture with maple tones, milk-paint finishes and vintage fabrics. If you desire some tailored design in the kitchen, go for bulkheads above the cabinets, vinyl-wrap patterned cupboard doors or granite bench tops.


To give your home a warm and peaceful feel, choose the right flooring – from polished timber flooring and carpets to vinyls or ceramic tiles. Pick one that will allow you to look forward to lazy afternoons and happy gatherings.

When building a country-style home, it should provide a relaxing, rural lifestyle. Without one or two of these interior must-haves, your home could feel a bit boring or lifeless. With design tips in mind, you can build a home that’s suitable to your budget and needs.
