When seeking out a new home, we here at Apartment Therapy have discussed deal-breakers here, here, and here. But what about deal-makers? What features of a home do you look for that you simply can't pass up? The "good bones".
For me, good bones include those elements of the home that I can't easily change due to their vintage or their cost of replacement. The short list includes:
- A good ceiling height.
- Solid floors in good condition.
- Plenty of light from at least large-ish windows.
- One unusual detail that sets the place apart from the other contenders: plaster moldings, oversized trim, or wider-than-average floor planks, for instance.
What's on your list of what constitutes good bones? Let's hear it below.
