Arguably the best part about building a custom home is that it’s just that – custom. You get to design it the way you want it, provided that what you want fits into your budget, of course. Naturally, some design choices will rank higher on your priority list than others. So what sorts of design choices should you prioritize?
Kitchens are often thought of as being the heart of the home. It’s where delicious meals are cooked and memories are made. Of course, it’s a lot easier to have happy memories of time spent in your kitchen if it’s a high quality kitchen. According to the Kitchen Specialist, you should choose your kitchen layout carefully, keeping the flow of movement in mind. Select quality flooring materials are durable and will hold up against water. Make sure you design it to have great lighting 24/7 too.
What will your roof be made from? Have you considered a metal roof? They are extremely durable and are one of the longest lasting options out there. Worried about rain and snow? Don’t be. According to Pierce Design + Build, metal roofs can resist rain and snow better than other roofing materials. In fact, a metal roof that is properly cared for could be the only roof you ever need to have installed on that home. Don’t worry too much about how it looks either. You might be surprised by just how nice they can be.
You need to have enough room to store your belongings in your home. One of the great things about custom homes is the opportunity to customize your storage space. Design your home with custom shelving. Include closets built with your things in mind. Add a mudroom. Build in some extra storage in each bathroom as well as in a laundry room. Whether you want shelves built into your walls or staircase, floating shelves, or some other option, you have a ton of ways you can build storage space into your home that will allow you to keep your home clean and organized and free of clutter.
Having a custom home built for you is an excellent opportunity to make sure that you’re getting the home design and features that you think are the most important. Consider prioritizing things like your kitchen, your roof, and your storage. That will help you live a comfortable life in your home for years to come.
