When it comes to planning a custom luxury home, the possibilities are endless!
But sometimes, the endless possibilities become a problem: many people freeze up when facing such a wide-open prospect. Is there such a thing as too many options?
That’s why we put together this list of our top-five favorite features—the amenities every custom home should have.
Trust us, you won’t want to skip these!
1. Fully Loaded Kitchen
The kitchen is the heart of the home, as they say—so why not go all in? When planning and designing their luxury homes, our clients typically spare no expense when it comes to kitchen features that are both practical and visually interesting. For example, they go for:
- High-end, stainless steel appliances
- Combination of open shelving and closed cabinets
- Marble counter tops
- Butcher blocks
- Spacious islands with extra storage and premium seating close to the action
- Eye-grabbing tile backsplashes
2. Plush Outdoor Amenities
One of the biggest trends we see right now in our custom home plans is a lavish outdoor space. Luxury homeowners want patios and backyards decked out with cozy furniture, appliances, and decor that makes the outside feel like an extension of the inside.
Typically, they add:
- Outdoor kitchens
- Top-of-the-line grills
- Covered seating
- Dining space
3. Extra Rooms With Dedicated Purposes
When building your dream home, you want to make space to enjoy your favorite hobbies and activities. Many of our clients choose to dedicate one or two rooms to something they really love, whether it’s working out, watching classic movies, or sipping barrel-aged whisky. Popular room choices include:
- Home gym
- Home theater
- Game room
- Wine cellar
4. Souped-Up Master Suite
Turn your master bedroom into an oasis! Our luxury homeowners love adding features like:
- Spa bathrooms
- Walk-in closets
- King beds
- Private balconies or courtyard access
- Cozy seating nooks
- Black-out curtains
5. “Smart Home” Technology
With smart home technology, you can digitally monitor, adjust, and control a growing number of household items. Usually you can access them straight from your smartphone. This technology brings home customization to a whole new level!
Many of our clients are interested in smart home technology for things like:
- State-of-the-art security systems
- Whole-house Bluetooth sound systems
- And more!
We hope these ideas give you some inspiration as you continue to plan your dream home!
