There’s a lot to think about when building a custom home. From layout to design finishes, the features you add to your custom build home will last a long time. Below, we’ve created a list of features to consider when building a custom home. Read on to learn how to maximize your custom home design with these feature ideas.
Consider splurging in taller ceilings if you want to open up your space. There’s a difference in the look and feel between 6 to 8 feet tall ceilings in how luxurious it appears. Tall ceilings will also allow you to receive a little more dramatic finishing touches, such as fixtures and wall art.
Speaking of opening up your space, you can also add some custom shelving to your custom home design. With more space, custom shelving has a ton of utility. Think about the rooms where you can utilize the additional storage. Then collaborate with your home builder to analyze any custom options you could incorporate.
His and Hers Closets
Why share a closet if you don’t need to? Go for his and her closets, and you and your other half will have sufficient room to store everything. This is becoming popular in new home builds, with homeowners finding appeal in having functional areas of the home. If it’s outside your original custom home design, call Robin Ford Building! We’ll determine if it would be possible to take some unnecessary square footage from the bathroom or master bedroom and apply it toward a dual closet solution.
Never Underestimate Extra Outlets
Although there’s nothing glamourous about additional outlets in your new home, it doesn’t mean they’re not worthwhile. When you are working on finalizing your custom home design, think long and hard about where you may benefit from an extra outlet. Additionally, think about areas where you know you’ll consume a lot of electronics.
If you can expand your garage, go for a three-car garage or add additional depth. You’ll never regret having plenty of garage space; even two or three feet in direction will make a difference. Plus, this goes double if you utilize your garage for storing more than cars since tools, bikes, and other belongings might take up a whole of space.
