What Are Your Specific Requirements and Wish List Items?

When it comes to your home, your family will have different individual needs than other families. Maybe you need a bigger mudroom so that your kids have somewhere to put all of their backpacks and shoes when they come in. Maybe you need to have extra counter space in your kitchen because you love baking elaborate desserts and big family meals. Maybe you just need to be part of the 22% of homes with more than 4,000 square feet of space because you’re planning on growing your family. Whatever it is that you specifically need to set your home apart from other new homes, you should make sure you discuss it with your home builders. Brainstorming some dream ideas is never a bad idea and your custom home builders can help you decide what’s realistic and within your budget.

What Finishes Do You Like?

There are so many different, unique design trends that are popular right now, and picking the one that’s best for you is something that gets easier when you collaborate with your custom home builder. If you like certain styles like open floorplans or large ensuite bathrooms, your custom builder can make sure that those details are included in the home’s design. Any smaller details, like certain shapes in doorways or the size and placement of windows, can also be an interesting design component that you can customize in new homes.

Choose Your Flooring

The flooring in your new home can help to create a sense of separation in open floor plans, help resist wear and tear, and add a lot to the overall decor of a room. That’s why choosing the right flooring to fit in your new custom home is so important — it will really impact the feeling of the space. Though it may not be the focal point or get a lot of attention, choosing great flooring will really help you get the most out of the room. Whether you want a bold tile in your kitchen or classic hardwood floors in your living spaces, you should make sure to discuss all of your options with your custom home builder.

By working with a custom home builder in South Carolina like Kristopher Homes, you can design a home that works for your family. Your new house will start feeling like home in no time.
