As leading providers of custom homes for all lifestyles, the team at Alderidge Construction knows how difficult it can be to create a space that offers the aesthetics you want without compromising liveability. That is why our team has provided a list of fun and functional room ideas for your custom home project.

3 Fun and Functional Room Ideas for Your Custom Home
The following ideas can be utilized for your custom home project to create a functional and beautiful living space:
1. Multi-Functional Mudroom
Mudrooms are a popular feature for most custom homes, especially in areas with frequent rain or snow. While they are often regarded as a simple space for coats and boots, they can be utilized for many other purposes. For example, a sink or small shower area can be included to create a dog bathing area or a location to rinse dirty boots off before setting them down to dry. A linen closet can also be added to ensure that you always have towels for drying your dog off or wiping your boots.
Things to consider when designing a laundry room.
2. Space Under the Stairs
The space under the stairs is often underutilized or completely overlooked by homeowners. In most homes, the space under your stairs can be used for a variety of purposes. Whether you wish to create a gallery hallway that runs under your stairs or transform this space into a cozy reading lounge, the possibilities are nearly endless.
3. Walk-in Rooms
Pocket doors (sliding doors) allow you to create several smaller rooms around your home without disrupting the layout or flow. Small walk-in rooms can be used to create a dedicated pantry next to your kitchen, a playroom for young children, or a dedicated office space when working from home. The best part about walk-in rooms is that your custom home can be designed to include several of them, allowing you to create the perfect spaces for your wants and needs.
