Building a custom home is a dream for many, but it can be incredibly overwhelming. It takes a lot of time and research to find where you want to build and the type of house you want, but making it custom is where the real work begins. You want a home that fits your family and your lifestyle. Considering a few of these things can make sure you get the house of your dreams.
1. Laundry Room
Your laundry room may be one of the smaller rooms in your house, but it deserves your full attention. Think about the type of work you’ll be doing in there. Do you have a house full of mud-loving children? Do you have a dog that likes to shed all over the rug? Imagine the amount of time you’ll spend it there and what you need to make your job as easy as possible. For some, that means a utility sink. For others, they need room for racks so clothes can drip-dry.
2. Hallway Width
A hallway seems like a pretty simple design, right? But one that’s too small can be a huge inconvenience. Consider your furniture, if someone in a wheelchair might need access, or if a wide hallway might give your home an openness it’s currently lacking.
3. Electrical Outlets
If you’re planning on having a Christmas tree in a certain corner every year, it helps to install an electrical outlet nearby. Planning on having lamps on either side of a window? You’ll need outlets.
Everyone loves ample storage in a home, so why skimp it when creating your custom house? Whether you need an extra closet or just want built-in shelving near your fireplace, it’s all your design for what you need.
5. Kitchen Plans
Maybe you’d like a motion-sensor light in your pantry or a built-in paper towel holder with your cabinets. Take a good, hard look at your kitchen and determine your needs. If you know that Christmas means a sink full of dishes, but you still need a place to wash veggies, that’s a great reason to install a smaller sink in an island.
