Consider These Ideas When Building a Custom Home
When it comes to how to build a custom home, there are many options for you so don’t get overwhelmed. These are some ideas to help you get started.
1. Built-in Shelves
You know how you like to store your things and you might have special things that you want to display. Built-in shelves are the perfect ways to maximize your home’s space and they can be a great place to show off the things you’re most proud of.
2. Accessory Dwelling Unit
When you’re building your custom home, try an accessory dwelling unit. These units cannot be sold separately and the owner of the primary residence is the owner of the ADU.
You might have a pool house, unit over the garage or another unit where people can live.
3. Put in a Hidden Room
Do you enjoy mystery and privacy? Hidden rooms can be a lot of fun and they can also be great for safety.
You might choose to have a hidden room as an entertainment area or you might want to be cautious and create a panic room. Whether you’re a kid or an adult, you’ve seen enough movies to know that the hidden room is where all of the excitement takes place.
4. Kitchen Nook
Having a dining room is one thing but when you want to make your home extra special, consider a kitchen nook where you can watch the sunrise. Dinner with the sunset and breakfast with the sunrise.
When you’re creating this part of your kitchen, you should think about putting in big windows so you can easily see this gorgeous view.
5. Laundry Rooms
We have more laundry than we’d care to admit but you have to take care of it. Why not make the laundry room a place that is not only functional but is also enjoyable.
You can build in counters where you can fold your clothing. You can also put in cabinetry and storage space for all things laundry. You can design an area where you don’t have to see your laundry soap and other containers but instead, you have a place for wicker baskets and other cute containers.
