For most of us, building a brand-new custom home means we’ll be living in it for many years to come, so it’s important to make it as comfortable and enjoyable to live in as possible. When it comes to new home construction, there is so much to do and think about. Fortunately, there are professionals who can help make the process easier so you can spend more time coming up with fun and creative ideas to make your space truly special.
From choosing the layout of each room in your home to the design finishes, there are many opportunities to incorporate custom features that will transform your space into a home that is truly unique and original.
Here, we’ll aim to get your creative juices flowing as we discuss the latest in home construction trends and explore these cool ideas to incorporate into your new home construction.
Custom shelving is a great way to ensure your new home is kept neat and organized by creating extra storage space that’s nice to look at.
There are many ways you can incorporate custom shelving into your new home construction. Built-in shelves are the perfect addition to your bathroom, so there’s no clutter around your bath, shower, or vanity areas. They can also add a unique aesthetic if you decide to add a mosaic or decor tile in the center.
Another way to incorporate custom shelving in your new home construction is by making it the focal point for a room. For example, you can build a floating shelf for your TV, or a built-in bookshelf to store books and other decor pieces. Shelves are a great way to showcase your decor, rather than having it appearing like clutter.
Cabinet lighting is a great idea — especially inside closets and underneath your kitchen cabinets. It is both practical and adds a charming light into your space. You can choose from stand-alone bulbs or LED strips that are wired into your main light switch, making it easy to turn your cabinet lighting on and off.
What better way to encourage your kids to read than to create their very own reading nook? You can do this in a number of ways; it is a great way to take full advantage of your home space. If you’ve got a well-lit dining room, you can utilize this by adding in a window seat along the slide of the wall to create the perfect afternoon reading area.
Another way to create a reading nook is to take advantage of the small nooks and crannies in your home by building a seat for cuddling up with a good book! Explore all the different parts of your home and discover how to create a cozy reading nook for your kids.
Dual Walk-In Closets
Another option that is likely to be on all of our wish lists is a walk-in closet! This is a really great feature if you’ve got some space to spare in your master bedroom. Creating a dual walk-in closet is perfect to allow for both you and your partner to have your own closet space, but still allowing for your things to be kept separate and organized. This feature is also a really great value-add if you’re thinking of selling your home at a later stage, and hoping to get a greater return on your investment.
If you’ve got kids constantly coming in and out of your home, then you know the struggle of trying to keep your entrance hall shoe-free! A mudroom is the perfect addition to any family home that wants to appear neat and tidy. You can even speak to your home architect or designer to have a custom bench and hooks built-in so you can have somewhere to sit while getting your shoes on and off, and have a place to hang jackets.
Extra Wall Outlets
Wall outlets are something we all desperately need more of, but are the last things we think about. Extra outlets can truly make your life easier, and they’re really fun to get creative with! Think about all the extra spots in your home where having a wall outlet would be convenient: near the stairs so you can have somewhere to plug in your Christmas lights, or on the side of your kitchen counter, so you can charge your phone or laptop while cooking or working from home. It’s easier to get this done now than to leave them as an afterthought and have someone install them once your home is already complete.
