Here we are going to share with you some custom home ideas that will not only make your home beautiful, but a home that is uniquely yours.
When you build a house it is just a house, but when building a custom home there are so many unique ideas that make it your “home” – and we are going to share a few favorites.
First impressions are everything and there’s no better way to make a great one than with a stunning entry. It’s the first thing everyone will see in your new home. When designing your dream home, your entry can be as unique as you desire from high ceilings to open floor plans or a breathtaking staircase. It’s not only amazing to see, but it’s also very functional. This part of your home is ideal for keeping your keys, umbrellas, and everything else you may need to start your day. The entryway of your home deserves an extra bit of detail because it’s what welcomes your guests into your home.
High Home Ceilings
High ceilings are always a must when building your own home. High ceilings allow rooms to feel open and spacious so you never feel cramped. They allow rooms to cool off much easier and faster, adding some much-needed comfort in the Florida heat and increasing your custom home’s energy efficiency.
If you love to cook, why not cook in a luxury kitchen? You’ll appreciate having custom storage options that specifically cater to you. Have your favorite spices right where you need them and your best chef’s knife an arms reach away. From the built-in spice rack corner, drawers, pullout shelves and countless other storage options when building a custom home, why wouldn’t you tailor your kitchen to fit your culinary needs?
A chef’s pantry is a separate room that holds everything else that your luxury kitchen will need. From all your ingredients, additional appliances and even a separate area for cooking. An example of when to use a Chef’s pantry would be when you’re hosting a casual dinner event. By having a separate cooking area, you or your caterer can prepare your meals while keeping the mess hidden and out of the way from your guests.
This is a common custom home idea, but it definitely deserves a mention. If you’re looking for a low maintenance flooring option, wood is a great choice. It’s easy to clean and often lasts longer than carpet. Plus, it has a sleek look that will add to the value of your home.
Home Movie Theater
Have you ever thought about having your own personal movie theater? If so, then consider a home cinema when building your custom home. All you need is a large screen, surround sound and comfortable seating to make one of the rooms of your home into your own movie theater. This room can be enjoyed by the whole family for a movie night or a spontaneous date night, but there are many other uses than just watching movies. Make watching the game feel as close to being there as possible or take your video game setup to a whole new level. A home cinema lets you enjoy the best parts of going to the movies without ever leaving your home.
Accent lighting is the use of lighting to draw the focus to a certain area of your house to help add style and elegance. There are many different ways to use accent lighting and each helps an area of your custom home stand out. From recessed lights for cabinets and shelves to wall lights to help light a staircase, or even light a beautiful piece of art.
Home Bar Room
Entertain your guests with your personal private bar where you can practice your bartending skills and store a variety of beverages. A wine cellar can be just as useful when entertaining a more relaxed mood to catching up with some of your friends. Both can provide a very elegant and fun setting for your home.
An outdoor kitchen is another kitchen for your home that is located outside so you can cook, clean and entertain while enjoying the outdoors. While designing your dream home, outdoor kitchens help you never miss the party while avoiding the back and forth travel from inside and outside. Also, when cooking outside you will keep all the smell and mess out of your new home. An outdoor kitchen is super useful for pool parties, family barbecues and many other outdoor activities.
