Some people prefer to search for the perfect home, while others opt to design their dream house.
If you belong to the latter group, there are many advantages, including getting all the things you want in a home. For example, suppose you’ve always wanted an energy-efficient house. In that case, it’s usually easier and less costly to put energy-saving features during the building phase than green remodeling an older home.
Another advantage is the possibilities for customization are almost limitless. To make your new house genuinely personalized, though, you need to think about what unique custom home features it should have.
Here, we’ll list some options that will hopefully inspire your very own creative custom home design ideas, so keep reading to learn more.
1. Smart Home Technology
A smart home is one of the best ways to save on your utility bills since it’s built for convenience and energy efficiency. Smart home features include home automation advances such as Wi-Fi-controlled security systems, programmable thermostats, and energy-saving kitchen appliances.
Other features to consider are built-in speaker systems, extra outlets in areas where you’ll use many electronics, and unexpected spots such as under cabinets to keep you and guests plugged in.
2. Hidden or Bonus Rooms
Did someone say interesting custom home features?
What could be more interesting than a secret room? It can be a hidden library, home theater, rock-climbing studio, or a speakeasy-style bar. Think beyond the essentials, and work with an experienced building to create space/s that can enhance your lifestyle.
3. Custom Shelving
Most custom homes have built-in shelving. It doesn’t mean, however, that you can’t get experimental with it.
Beyond its purpose, think about how custom shelving can be the focal point for a room. Bookshelves around an archway, customized cubbies for each family member, and floating corner shelves for your succulents are just some ideas you can play around with when it comes to custom shelving.
4. Large Mudroom and Other Unique Custom Home Features
Oh, where oh where to hang your coat or take off your muddy shoes, especially on rainy or snowy days?
A hall closet? Sure. But why not go from a small hall closet to a spacious mudroom where you can store not only housecoats but also shoes, sporting equipment, etc.?
Besides a large mudroom, other custom home features to think about are kitchen finishes such as a breakfast nook, walk-in pantry, and oversized island. You might also want to consider a luxurious outdoor living space with a custom pool, kitchen, and lounge area.
