When talking about custom homes, people tend to focus on things like appearance and technology. Does your home have the latest in smart-fridge appliances? Do you have heated floors? Well, maybe you do. However, there are 3 really great features of custom houses that go unpraised by the average architecture enthusiast. Heidan Construction is intimately familiar with what makes a custom home great, so we’re here to share.
The first thing may seem obvious but, to many, it isn’t. People get so focused on having the flooring or paint color they want that they forget about the floorplan. All of those little things that get on your nerves in the average house can be completely done away with.
Tired of your toilet being crammed between the tub and sink? Give your bathroom lots of free space and a comfortable margin around the toilet. Is it your pet peeve waking up to sunlight in your eyes? It’s within your power to put your bedroom window on the north wall! Like your kitchen in the front of the house but don’t want the entry to go directly into it? You can position everything exactly how you like it so that, when you come home, you feel truly at home.
Made with a Purpose
If you enjoy planning with detail, you probably have ideas about your custom home design and exactly how it will look. When you plan each room down to where the furniture goes, you can design the actual house to fit each purpose exactly. This is one of the most convenient features of custom houses.
If you plan on having an office space, if you know where your desk is going, you can put your light fixture right overhead. Know how you want your living room arranged? Position your fireplace, light fixtures, or built-in entertainment center right where you need it. You can say goodbye to adapting to houses that weren’t made for you. Instead, unload your moving van and put everything right where it goes. When each area of your home is made with a purpose, you can plan it right down to crafting an alcove for that one decoration you never have a spot for. It all fits like a glove.
The Perfect Fit
Speaking of the perfect fit, one of the features of custom houses means building exactly the amount of space you need. For growing families, you may have to make some guesses regarding future needs. However, if you’re done having kids, or don’t intend to have any to begin with, you won’t need to do much guessing.
You can put in exactly as many bedrooms as you need. Or, you can put in exactly as many rooms as you need for your various hobbies. Therefore, if you’ve got family that likes to visit, you know you need a guest room. Your art studio can be designed to accommodate exactly the supplies and equipment you have or plan to buy. All of those spaces you’ve found yourself dreaming of having for yourself will be right there. You won’t have to constantly think about expanding rooms or moving to a bigger home that has something closer to what you need. You’ll have exactly what you’re after.
