Each of us is unique, and we want our home to be a reflection of that individuality. Personalization can make that special something a little more special. It’s why we put bumper stickers on our cars or engrave our monograms into our possessions. Conversely, impersonalization can make a jacket, a vehicle, and even your new home feel one-size-fits-all. If you’re eager to put your special touch on your custom-built home, look to these popular customization options.
Master on the Main
Traditionally, master bedrooms have gone on the second floor of the home. With an eye towards future mobility issues, though, many homebuyers are eager to find a property with a master bedroom on the ground floor. Not just for retirees, masters on the main level can also be beneficial to those with young children. Tuck the little ones in upstairs and enjoy your evening without worrying about waking up the kids.
High Ceilings (and Higher Style)
High ceilings are a simple way to make a home feel more spacious, luxurious and inviting. The high ceilings lend themselves well to higher doors, windows and tray ceilings, all of which add a wow factor to the home. Generally, high ceilings can add value to your home, so if you’re considering re-selling at some point, this is a great investment in your future.
Doors and walls are great for bedrooms, but when it comes to entertaining, they can make a space feel cramped. If you and your family love to have dinner parties, consider opting for an open concept floor plan. Not only does removing walls create better flow of traffic, but it can also bring more light into a space. Your friends and family are sure to love the spacious feel of such a home.
Keep your high-trafficked areas clutter free and your entire home a little cleaner with a custom mudroom. Serving as a functional command center of the house, mudrooms are a great spot to hang coats, store boots and set up Fido’s food and water bowl. Your mudroom can even be customized to allow room for a washer and dryer, ensuring that you’ll never again need to track muddy clothes or boots through the house.
When it comes to creating your dream home, the sky’s the limit!
