Women participate in the decision of purchasing a new home but, most of the times homes are designed and built for men. Builders should gradually consider to design women-friendly homes. Women directly purchase homes these days or influences the buying of a new home.
Yet most architects, engineers and homebuilders are men. It is true that more and more home buyers are single females so it is time that home builders try to build and design homes for women. Today, homes are generally built with a male perspective. But, now women’s perspective has to be considered with new solutions for innovative and functional living spaces.
Storage is a quite a challenge so pantries are getting larger and even walking closets are getting larger. Bedroom need not be large anymore because, storage is removed. Aesthetics are extremely important to attract women buyers or influencers. The house has to look attractive from the exterior before looking inside.
Tweak your plan to accommodate a few of these extras to suit women.
Most women don’t use a bathtub attached to the bedroom. Infact, it tiers them to keep dusting the tub and they feel guilty about all the water that it take to fill the tub. Thus, it only makes sense for the tub to be not there or be placed elsewhere. There is no preference for a big bath tub rather for over sized showers. This is especially for bigger homes and people who live in row houses or bunglows.
Storage space in kitchen is essential but kitchens are being projected as entertaining spaces too. Work-in pantry should have enough storage space along with space for food preparation. It should typically have a sink and a dishwasher.
There should be enough space to dry clothes in the house and should not come in the way of other rooms. Now a days the rooms are smaller and homes are getting compact. So, in such homes its best to have space for important activities. One such work is to dry clothes. If the home design gives enough space for it, women would love it.
Also, it would be convenient to grab clothes straight out of the dryer and dry them just a few steps away.
Women love pets so there should be enough space to accommodate pets. While planning a new home it is good to address the needs of the pet- kennels for feeding, washing, etc. This makes the home more liveable and enjoyable. There should be place for washing and storage space for the pet.

These are some ways in which you can design a home to suit and appeal women buyers or decision makers.
