Designing your custom home is a fun process, but it can be overwhelming to sort through the countless options available to you. Here are some of the top custom features you can use to ensure that your home is the perfect space for you and your family now and in the future.
Take Your Ceilings Higher
Taller ceilings are one of the most impressive custom features you can use when building your home. Vaulted and tray ceilings are a simple way to make your rooms feel more significant and luxurious. You can use the ceilings throughout the house or focus on using them on the lower level in high-impact places like the entrance and living room.
Use an Open Floor Plan
Open floor plans are popular for a reason, as they provide you with endless options for decorating and organizing your home. Many homeowners find that an open floor plan allows them to stay connected to their family, as someone in the living room watching TV can easily chat with someone in the kitchen cooking dinner. There are many custom features that can further enhance your open floor plan, and this type of home design is great for people who want plenty of light and open space throughout the house.
A Mudroom to Keep the House Tidy
Another one of the best custom features for your new home is a mudroom. Mudrooms let you keep messes contained, which is especially important if you have children or pets. These do not need to be large, as even a small 3-foot by 4-foot area can provide enough space for some cubbies and bins to stash things as you come inside on a wet day.
A Cozy Fireplace
Fireplaces are the perfect place to gather at the end of a long day or on a cold winter night, so it’s no surprise that they are one of the top custom features that homeowners add to their custom properties. Fireplaces are not an overly expensive addition to your property, and you can choose from wood-burning fireplaces that are more traditional or convenient gas fireplaces.
