New Home Construction: 4 Design Features You Should Include When Building Your Home
It’s no surprise that with the competitive housing market we’ve seen so far in 2022, finding a home in the Hampton Roads or Cape Charles areas of Virginia – that fits your family’s specific needs, doesn’t require endless renovations, and is within your desired price range – can feel like a losing battle. This article will provide yo with 4 Design Features you should include when building your home.
Building a new, custom construction home is the best way to guarantee you the home of your dreams: one with features that not only make your daily life more efficient, but also hits the mark on your unique design preferences.
That’s where we at K.M. Cash Construction can help, by not only checking off the items on your home must-have list, but by also incorporating custom design details that provide you with the highest quality, ultimate luxury for your family. Unsure of what to include when building your new home? We’ve created a list of 4 Design Features to consider when building your home:
1. Large Mud Room – Contains the mess!
The entryway into your house provides your guests with their first impression of your beloved home. Unfortunately, the entryway or foyer often acts as a catch-all space for your family as you
enter and leave the home, and keeping it clutter-free can be exhausting.
Functional but stylish, a mudroom is the perfect solution, and the options are endless for this kind of space. Built in cubbies for your children to hang their school bags on or a dedicated space for dirty
shoes mean no more muddy footprints throughout the home.
Trying to avoid muddy paw prints instead? This space acts as a great buffer from all things outdoors.
2. Ceiling Features – Showcase an overlooked canvas!
Ceilings often don’t get the attention they’re truly due, but don’t underestimate them! They can have a huge impact on the visual appeal of a space.
With your custom-built K.M. Cash Construction home, you can incorporate unique ceilings in the living room at the heart of your home, or provide a dramatic, elevated feel to a home office or library
3. Heated flooring. The ultimate winter luxury!
Although tile and hardwood flooring provide timeless, easy-to clean flooring for your home, the cold winter season means floors that are cool to the touch in the early morning. Heated floors are one way to make your Hampton Roads or Cape Charles home comfortable and cozy despite the winter weather. Although you can’t see it, you can certainly feel the difference.
4. Butler Pantry. Optimize kitchen organization.
Instead of cluttering your kitchen counters with appliances galore, building a butler’s pantry adjacent to your kitchen not only provides a space to tuck the mess away, but is also a magnificent prep-space perfect for hosting.
Including this historic home feature in your new build home not only adds charm and vintage appeal, but provides endless storage options for storing and serving food and countless other kitchen needs.
