If you’re like most people, you’ve envisioned your dream home. It’s safe to say that you want a custom home if you watch HGTV shows or scroll through Pinterest and look at unique houses. Many details distinguish custom homes from the rest.
When hiring a custom home builder, knowing what elements mean the most to you and what will work for your budget is best. The Carroll County Times deemed us as ‘Carroll’s Best’ home remodeling company for several years in a row for a reason.
Our team of construction and remodeling experts understands what it takes to make a home customized. Here are a few game-changers for an incredible custom home.
Outdoor Fireplace and Grill
When you customize your home, you can pick out every detail from the ground up, including the layout, finishes, and whatever else your heart desires. A home’s exterior often takes precedence. However, we also encourage you to focus on the details of your outdoor living space.
Consider enhancing your outdoor living space by adding a fireplace and grill to your yard. This type of space allows you to relax, feel cozy, and immerse yourself in nature. Imagine the tranquility of sitting under the stars by your fireplace with a warm cup of cocoa.
Then, consider all of the BBQs you could host and how many unforgettable memories could happen in your yard. You can grill all your food in one space for the ultimate convenience. A built-in grill is functional because you don’t have to move far to flip burgers.
An Inviting Staircase
The finest homes throughout history have the best architecture, from the home’s exterior down to its staircases. A traditional staircase is practical and functional, but a custom staircase adds drama and interest to your home. Consider the different materials and finishes you can use to create a unique look.
A Custom Lighting Plan
Recessed lighting is no longer the only option you have. Some excellent lighting options for your custom home can include the following:
- You can use task lighting for specific tasks such as cooking, cleaning, and working.
- Accent lighting that draws attention to features in your home, such as art, photos, and sculptures
- Ambient lighting makes a room appear lighter and emits more warmth and depth.
- Natural lighting means you can use windows, skylights, and other openings in your home to produce a lot of natural light.
It’s best to pick the proper lighting because it impacts mood. Psychology Today reported that indoor light has a powerful impact on the life you lead, enhancing mood, creativity, and cognitive performance.
A Bathroom Oasis for Your Custom Home
You deserve a bathroom oasis. Where you bathe and shower should be a place where you can escape. This space should recenter you before you start your work day and soothe you when you come home from an exhausting day at work. Bathroom game-changers include the following:
- Double vanities
- Large walk-in showers
- Clawfoot tubs
- Heated floors
- Plenty of natural light
