Today, we look around at homes, and even high-tiered homes are, more or less, cookie-cutter homes. These large developments that are going up all over the country are nothing more than a dozen or so designs that get mixed into the neighborhood. From the outside, it may look like they are unique, but most of these homeowners are only able to make moderate modifications to their homes. This is hardly the “custom” experience for which many of you are looking.
What is the answer? To design a home that is custom fit to your needs. Simply put, the advantages of bespoke living far outweigh the price increase of having a custom home, especially when considering future family plans that you generally cannot address when purchasing a pre-designed home, even if it allows some modifications.
Personalized Functionality and Aesthetics
Generally speaking, a custom-designed home is probably going to be your forever home, which means resale is not really a concern. Point being, you are able to customize the home for functionality and aesthetics without having to worry if some future home buyer would find something attractive or useful.
For instance, if you enjoy cooking and entertaining, the main focus of the home may be an oversized gourmet kitchen that opens into a dining room.
When you are dealing with what we can call volume builders, it is all about the bottom line, which generally means some corners are going to be cut from time to time. They decide on the materials and often many of the finer details. By choosing to go totally custom, you make all the decisions, right down to the quality of the cabinet handles and light fixtures.
Efficient Use of Space
When you design a custom home, you are no longer trying to fit your lifestyle into someone else’s design. The design of the home is to fit your lifestyle and believe me, it makes a big difference. Every space in the house is accounted for.
When you buy a pre-designed home, it may have some features you really like, but it is still not you. When you design a custom home, believe me, there will be an emotional connection to the house. The pride you will have in the home alone is a game changer, not to mention that satisfying feeling you have after it call comes together of, “I did this.”
You are not creating a house… You are creating a sanctuary for you and your family, meant to suit your needs, from top to bottom.
