When it comes to custom homes, adaptability and creativity are literally built right in. You call the shots every step of the way, from the biggest considerations right down to the smallest detail. But did you know that the opportunities don’t stop there? Instead, each month offers new ways to make your custom home stand out.
The start of a new year is an ideal time to showcase all of the exciting and innovative features of your custom home. That includes interior design and personalized décor. Use this advice to take the comfort and style of your residence to a new level in 2019.
1) Think Outside the Box
Adopting trends can be tough. On the one hand, it’s nice to be part of a new craze. On the other, you might be hesitant to make drastic changes to your home’s décor that you might regret later on. Luckily, it’s easy to find a middle ground to satisfy the desires of every member of your family.
For example, according to design experts, mixed textures are hot this year. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different materials, including wood, varied textile fibers, metal, leather, and more. You can even incorporate recycled objects (such as glass and tin) into your overall design. When you live in a high-quality custom home tailored to your exact requirements, decorating is fun and relaxing.
2) Focus on High Traffic Areas
The most used areas of any home (according to REALTORs®) are the kitchen, bathroom, and bedrooms. That’s why it’s essential that these room match your unique personality. You want to feel comfortable in your residence. By creating a separate ambiance for each space, you provide guests and loved ones with a new experience as they move about your house.
For instance, metal kitchen accents (especially copper) are fashionable this year. So are butcher block countertops or those made of solid granite and even concrete. Two-tone cabinets and colorful accents set a welcoming mood. Open shelving and black appliances that rose to popularity in 2018 remain in style.
In the bathroom, display your stylish flair by generating an elegant atmosphere. Place candles, antiques, and interesting décor throughout the space. Your guests will be pleasantly impressed, and your loved ones will feel like they’re staying in a five-star hotel every day of the year.
3) Make the Most of Your Spare Room
The possibilities are nearly endless for your spare room. After you’ve secured all the essentials for your custom home, let the fun begin by discovering new and exciting uses for this extra space.
For example, you could make an entertainment area where the whole family can enjoy weekly movie screenings. Perhaps a home bar or café is more your style. This room is also ideal for yoga/meditation and exercise. Many people today use a spare room to work from home all or part of the time. You could even convert the space to a study/reading area or hobby room. When guests visit, your spare room is the perfect spot for comfortable accommodations.
4) Dream It, Then Do It
As mentioned, custom homes are all about personalization. Is sustainability and environmental responsibility important to you? Your home builder can design a dwelling that honors this commitment. You’ll likely have other important considerations in mind. The first step is to partner with reliable builders with a proven track record of success.
