Whenever you look to add to the design of your custom home, every choice is intended to make it stand out. Even though your previous home had a vast amount of personalization available, you can still make sure your house doesn’t look like every other one in the neighborhood. Here are some ways to pull that off.
Include the Details
Everyone has a different personality and different interests, even if they share those hobbies with someone else, they will still have a unique look at it. Think about how the flooring in your home, along with carpets and rugs might indicate that. Do you have bamboo mats or yoga mats to increase the number of places where people can sit? Don’t overlook the importance of lighting in your custom home – wherever you go, you need to be able to see. Plus, getting the storage space you need is something that many custom homeowners fail to consider. Without all of this needed storage, your home could soon become a cluttered dumping ground instead of a comfy place to live.
Look for Art and Decorations
You don’t have to follow through with old rules and preconceived notions about what you can and can’t do with the art and decorations in your custom home. The only rule of thumb that you should use to guide your process is to make sure everything is tasteful – if you veer too much on the side of tacky, then your guests will have something to complain about to the HOA.
Avoiding outdated hardware is another good idea. Choose the faucets, doorknobs, and locksets that you know will impress all of your visitors. You can recover old pieces that are still functional, and incorporate antiques and heirlooms into your home that can still reflect your family’s past while helping to bring you into a bright new future.
Add Small Touches
One last tip is to add some small touches that can really surprise everyone, even the people in your family who live with you. Add more sinks, expand the kitchen, and include more power outlets too, just in case.
