Are you thinking about the furniture for your custom home? The first thing you need to worry about as far as the furniture is concerned is how the layout of the furniture is going to be in your new custom home. Many homeowners make the mistake buying all the furniture items without giving any thought about the layout of the home. Once the home gets completed, a lot of the furniture items look out of place in the house. This can hamper the design of the house itself.
You should integrate the furniture layout designing process with the overall home designing process itself. You should have a detailed discussion with your home designer about your furniture requirements and ask him to integrate the furniture layout along with the home design. You never know, the designer might come up with a better layout for the furniture which works even better for your custom home than you imagined. It is good that you gave a thought about the furniture early on in the project itself. But, at the same time, you should not decide things unilaterally because the designer knows a thing or two which you might miss out.
