Building a custom home is exciting! Not only can you look forward to the home of your dreams, where you can live your entirelife, raise a family, and build amazing memories, but you also don’t have to “fit” your dream into pre-existing home features and finishes.
But before you start planning, here are some features to consider when building a new home in 2022. Use them for inspiration and to make sure you create the home of your dreams!
More and more custom homes are opting for a mudroom to help keep things organized and clean. Think of it as a small addition to your home where you can keep coats, shoes, backpacks, and other items you may need just as you’re about to head out. Put this on a list of must haves when building your new home.
The mudroom frees up a lot of space inside your home with built in shelves and allows you to be more creative with your interior design. Not only that, but you can rest assured the home will stay a lot cleaner thanks to the mudroom, as you can quickly change shoes and avoid tracking in dust, mud, sand, and other outside elements.
It’s no secret that the number of people starting to work at him has skyrocketed. While some companies are trying to get workers back into the office, a lot of people are choosing to either work from home entirely, or go for a hybrid model.
One of the issues with working from home is separating your personal activities from your job. This is not a problem with a home office specifically designed to help you stay productive and work, while in the comfort of your home. When considering a new home design, develop a floor plan that allows you to easily separate your personal activities from your job. This means a place that is easy to focus that does not put you in a place to be distracted often.
California homeowners who want to take advantage of the sun and warmth should consider adding an outdoor kitchen. If you’re already known to host garden parties, think of what you can achieve with an outdoor kitchen instead of a simple grill. Adding an outdoor kitchen can go a long way to transforming your outdoor living space, and add value to your custom property.
When building a new home more and more homeowners are opting for walk-in closets and pantries, and for good reason. Interior design trends are becoming more simple and minimalistic, and a walk-in closet or pantry helps free up a lot of room or kitchen space.
Not only that, but if you have a big family or generous collection of clothes, walk-ins can help you stay organized, and always find what you need easily.
Pet owners are now thinking about how to make their homes more accommodating for their furry friends. Since pet-proofing the entire home may not be the ideal solution, a specially-designated area is a great way to give your pet a room where they can feel most comfortable. If you have pets that love to get dirty, this is one of the must have features to consider when building a new home in 2022.
And the entire space can be designed to accommodate your pet’s needs, such as built-in litter boxes for cats or doorways to allow your pets to go outside when they need a bit of fresh air.
Of course, pets shouldn’t have all the fun, which is why adding a game room to your custom home is becoming a more and more common add-on. This room is specifically designed for the entire family to unwind, play games, watch movies, and bond.
