When the day comes that you are able to build a custom home, you might be excited about the idea of all the things that you will be able to customize, such as the size and number of your rooms or the overall floorplan and design. If you are getting ready to build a custom home or start the process of designing your custom home, we here at Eden Construction have a few features that you might want to add.
- Outlets. Outlets Everywhere. With so many devices and items that we want plugged in and charging these days, the addition of outlets is something that everyone could use a little more of. Add USB capable outlets to areas where you frequently charge your phones or tablets. Try adding outlets to the inside of your drawers in the bathrooms or kitchens. Add outlets to the underside of a fireplace mantel for lights during the holidays.
- Design Features. A custom home is where you can let loose on design and have some fun. Make a secret room from a built-in bookcase or consider adding a slide from one floor to another. A movie room with stadium seating can be a great addition, too.
- Environmentally Friendly Features. Choosing to add features that will make your home more environmentally friendly is much easier to do at the beginning stages. Things like extra insulation and a smart thermostat are excellent options.
- Aging in Place Features. Many people design custom homes with the intent of staying there forever. This means adding features like main floor master suites, large showers and even flooring will help you to age in place.
