High tech items may be all the rage in today’s custom home building world, and a few items and very fascinating and functional for modern living. On the other hand, a few old-fashioned technologies for homes prove quite useful as well. You do not have to invest in insane luxury smart appliances in order to have an innovative home design. After all, a custom home is all about what you want in it. Read on for a couple of low-tech custom home ideas you should consider.
The laundry chute will consist of a small flap close to the floor of a second-story room that leads right down into another flap opening to the laundry room below. This cute can save you the step of carrying a whole load of laundry downstairs. Instead, one could store their hamper in the laundry room, where the laundry machines are ready to go to clean them. This is a very convenient appliance to have in your custom home.
Another nice design that you could request from Robin Ford Builders is a garage-to-pantry doorway. A smaller, insulated door around the floor can open up from the garage to your walk-in pantry, making it a lot easier to put away all of your groceries. Your pantry items will be in the pantry when you do get inside your home!
Under-Stairs Storage Space
Another low-tech custom home design idea is a straightforward and in-style option: and that is creating as much storage space as you can. The most efficient and easy way to use your space will reward you with plenty of room for storage and perhaps some monetary savings in the home design. While custom kitchen cabinets are a great space to start, you can also make use of fewer common spaces, like underneath your stairs. This often unused space can become your dog house, pantry, cupboard for board games, or a cleaning closet.
Nothing says “low-tech custom home ideas” like hidden rooms or a hidden passageway. Historic homes may have a hidden door to make it a little less conspicuous when servers bring food into the dining room from the kitchen. Some could use the hidden room to hide away their collection room, studio, home office, or hobby room.
