Many people yearn to design their custom-built dream home. Being able to provide input on every aspect of your living space is a unique experience. How many of us spend years and excessive amounts of money trying to renovate our current homes to create our dream kitchens and must-have master baths?
The benefits of a custom-built home
Having the ability to determine how the sunshine fills your home, how it is best situated upon the property and how to utilize every inch of your square footage are just a few of the bonuses of opting for a custom home. Choosing your favorite materials to work with is another excellent feature. Building a custom log home is distinctly different from building a custom Craftsman style home. Having your inner personality reflected in the aesthetics and layout of your home makes it exceptionally personal — and exceptionally yours.
Owning Your Space
Having the right amount of bedrooms and bathrooms to suit your family is ideal. Perhaps you would prefer to have the kids in their own wing and some space between their rooms, the guest bedroom and the master suite. The beauty of designing your own home is that you can take every aspect into consideration.
Communal eating areas may be more your style as opposed to having a formal dining room. Or vice versa. Maybe a breakfast bar with stools is more conducive for the kids’ snacktime and can double as a homework or laptop station. Incorporating a library into the family room is another popular option. Don’t forget reading nooks, bay windows with built-in seating options and functional fireplaces.
Determining Your Family’s Needs
Individuals who have special needs can dramatically benefit from a custom-built home. Incorporating wider hallways and ramps for wheelchair access, elevators or stair-lift systems can be a wonderful solution for accommodating those with mobility issues. Similarly, having complete control over building materials is extremely helpful for those who suffer from severe allergies.
Figure out where you and your loved ones spend the most time and elaborate on those areas. Look at your family’s favorite extracurricular activities and where you spend time for your entertainment. Perhaps constructing a home gym or home theater room is a priority. If you live to swim, maybe incorporating a built-in pool and/or hot tub should be a part of your plan.
Have you always dreamed of skylights and vaulted ceilings? Are jet tubs and walk-in, multi-spray showers at the top of the list? Do you want your master bathroom to resemble a spa? Would a changing room, poolside gazebo or a mud room make life easier? Marrying the style and functionality of your dream home takes a talented skill set.
