Designing a Custom Home: Don’t Forget These Must-Have Features!

t&G builders designing a custom home

Adding wood floors is one thing to consider when designing a custom home.

You’ll discover that there are many decisions to make when designing a custom home. You’ll ask questions such as the following: 

  • How big do I want this house to be?
  • What type of land do I want my house to sit on?
  • What kind of floor plan do I want my custom home to have?

However, we encourage you not to get too overwhelmed by obsessing over all the intricate details. It’s best to hone in on all the essentials, which T&G Builders is here to help you do. Here is a list of must-have features when designing a custom home. 

A Mud Room

People often overlook the convenience of having a place designated to store wet and dirty gear, boots, jackets, hats, and other outdoor items when they walk in the house. It’s best not to track mud and water throughout the house. You’ll preserve your floors and keep your home cleaner when designing a custom home with a mud room.

Wood Floors

You can always upgrade a tiled or concrete floor to wood flooring. Wood floors look fantastic in any room, especially family rooms and dens, where you can sit and enjoy the company of friends. A high-quality wood floor is a subtle way to add charm to an otherwise neutral space. We recommend finding the right hardwood flooring for your room’s design scheme. If you choose the flooring that’s too light, it can throw off the entire design scheme. 

A Freestanding Tub

Designing a custom home with a freestanding tub is a dream come true for homeowners who love to take baths. You won’t have to worry about space for a tub since you can put it anywhere you like. 

A Dedicated Spice Rack

Do you call yourself a chef? If so, you’ll appreciate having a dedicated spice rack because cooking can get messy. A kitchen island with spice racks will help keep you organized and make your kitchen appear more elegant. 

Built-in Shelving

Built-in living room or den shelves add a touch of personality to any room. It’s best to have a place to store all your books, magazines, and other reading materials if you’re designing a custom home. Built-in shelving can also serve as a place where you add décor. 

Under-Cabinet Lights

Under-cabinet lights are available in various finishes, whether you use them in your kitchen, bathroom, or both. You can choose lights that match the room’s décor or a different color to add visual interest.
