Custom Home Building Ideas

6 Feb 2020 Custom Building

Getting to know some simple custom home building ideas will help you decide which elements should be included in your new home’s design. At Jaheny Custom Builders, they understand how important it is to design a home that is both beautiful and functional. That is why their team will work closely with you to ensure that your custom home is everything you dreamed it would be.

1. Create a Hidden Room

Adding a hidden room into your home can be a great way to create a secret kid space or an adult relaxation space. Consider creating a hidden movie theatre loft, secret library, or a speakeasy-style bar.

2. Design a Large Mudroom

When designing a new home, creating ample space for coats, shoes, and sporting equipment can go a long way toward keeping your home neat and tidy. A great way to make expansive mudrooms even more organized is to utilize built-in lockers or shelves.

3. Plan for an Upstairs Laundry Room

While the laundry room can often be overlooked when planning a new custom home, it is important to consider building this frequently used space on the second floor. Putting in a laundry room closer to the bedrooms will help cut down on time spent doing this particular chore, as you will not have to travel as far from one room to the next.

4. Save Room for a Spa

One of the best elements that can be incorporated into a custom home design is a spa-like bathroom. Adding a large master bathroom into the design will allow you to make room for a soaking tub, walk-in shower, and even a sauna.

5. Design an Outdoor Living Space

Consider making an outdoor living space a permanent part of your home by connecting a sunroom to the deck or by installing huge sliding doors that open into the backyard. Doing so will help blend the indoors and outdoors, creating a more cohesive feel to the space.

6. Opt for a Heated Driveway

Since living in Canada can often lead to unpredictable winter weather conditions, incorporating a heated driveway into your custom home design can help prevent you from having to spend hours shovelling snow.
