If you are thinking of building a custom home, several unique features can be implemented to make it more comfortable, efficient, and modern. As part of the custom home building checklist, you will be able to decide which unique features you want in your home. When faced with so many potential possibilities, it can be difficult to determine where to start. That is why the team at Alderidge Construction has created a list of custom home building ideas that are great additions to nearly any home.
Custom Features for Every Home
When building a custom home, you can request to have several unique features installed. Below, we have compiled a list of some common and effective ideas that suit and benefit nearly any home.
Include Built-In Shelves
Optimizing storage space is a great way to free up living space in any room of your house. By installing shelves as part of walls or implementing pull-out drawers under stairs, these under-utilized spaces now serve a distinct purpose. Wall-based shelving can also add a stylized touch to any room.
Install Skylights or Sun Tunnels
Maximizing natural light can be a great method of reducing energy costs throughout the year. In addition to windows, skylights are an effective way to increase natural light, especially in hallways.
Plan for Outlets Everywhere
With more and more devices being added to homes, it is important to ensure that there are enough outlets to power them. It can also be beneficial to add them to less conventional locations such as under cabinets and on the side of counters to power small appliances and smart home devices.
Consider a Central Vacuum System
Central vacuum systems make cleaning your floors easier than ever, allowing you to spend less time cleaning and more time enjoying your home. These systems are available in a variety of configurations that can meet the layout of nearly any home.
Build a Smart Home
A fully modernized home includes a variety of smart technology that optimizes everything from house temperature and security to personal entertainment. By accounting for the placement and installation of smart home technology, you will be able to adjust various aspects of your home with nothing more than your voice or an input from your mobile phone.
Build a Net Zero Home
A Net Zero Home produces as much clean energy as it consumes through the use of solar panels or another renewable energy source. This ensures that the home is completely sustainable while having a minimal environmental footprint. In addition to being environmentally responsible, Net Zero homes offer exceptional value, greater comfort, and healthier living.
An Upstairs Laundry Room
By opting for a laundry room that is on the same floor as the bedrooms, you can spend less time on laundry by making fewer trips between floors.
