Your custom home is a reflection of your personal taste and lifestyle. When you build a home from scratch you get to pick and choose those features that will bring you the most joy, comfort, and convenience. Here are our picks for the top 7 features to consider when building new (or renovating your existing home).
1. Wine Cellar
A wine cellar is ideal for wine-enthusiasts who enjoy a glass or two of their favorite beverage during the week and want to store their bottles in a setting where the temperature can be adjusted and controlled. The cellar will work as a conversation piece and can allow you to put your wine on display.

2. Spa Bathroom
Spa bathrooms will make you feel pampered and at ease in a place where you can unwind after a long day. Consider installing a pedestal tub, which can feature spa jets that massage your muscles as you soak in the suds. A walk-in shower will also create a space that feels like a spa and can provide you with more room to bathe. You can also install your very own at home steam room using a combination of a bench (with access panel for your steam unit) and pivoting transom glass door.
3. Dressing Room
Upgrade your closet or even walk in closet with a dressing room. This is ideal for women who need more space to store their clothing items and accessories. The dressing room can include a full-length mirror with drawers, countertop space, and racks as well as a seating area for comfort.
4. Outdoor Kitchen
With only a few prime patio months each year, make the most of every day by creating an outdoor kitchen.
The outdoor kitchen will prove to be a useful space for entertaining your guests with a stainless food prep area, a built-in gas grill, and lavish stone patio seating. You’ll have plenty of room to host a party and serve meals without having to head indoors.
5. Home Office
Many custom homes now feature home offices where you can stay productive and complete work that you need to finish throughout the day. A home office is ideal for those who telecommute or own their own business. Consider adding a coffee station to stay energized, or even a breakfast nook to prepare your meal before your workday starts. Consider smart lighting and built in speakers to keep you motivated throughout your work day..
6. Commercial-grade Kitchen
Commercial-grade kitchens are in demand for their upscale features that include warming drawers, double dishwashers, and restaurant-quality appliances that can improve your ability to cook and prep food. The kitchen is also one of the areas of the home with the highest returns on investment should you decide to sell your home later on.
7. Home Automation
Allow your lights, locks, and alarm system to be automated with tech tools that sync to your home and can be controlled with a push of a button.
