Making the Right Decision on Custom Homes

a woman imagining her kitchen in future custom homesWhen you decide on custom homes, you’re given the chance to pick and choose every detail. Choice equals options. It also means that you have to keep many things in mind. Getting to choose almost every aspect of your home’s design takes time, but some rooms should take more time than others. Palo Verde Homes can help you decide on the details. 

Where to Begin

On one hand, deciding on room size and closet space should not take too much time. On the other hand, deciding on living room feature might. For your first custom home experience, it is best to begin with the kitchen and bathrooms. These two rooms will usually take longest to decide on, and will need more time than other parts of the house. The team at Palo Verde Homes is ready to help make your dream home a reality!

The Kitchen in Custom Homes

The first room to think about in your future custom home is the kitchen. Whether or not you spend a good amount of time in the kitchen, it is the room with the most mileage. Kitchens are usually built as the focal point of a home. You will want to take your time deciding on the layout of the kitchen. Sleep on it and compare the top two design side by side if possible. After you have the layout, the next thing you should decide is the color scheme. Decide on the countertops and cabinets first and make sure they match! After you have those features picked, you can then move onto handles and sink features. Depending on the type of customs homes you go with, there may already be some options available to you. Lastly, pick out the appliances and their colors.

The Bathroom in Custom Homes

The next room to think about is the bathroom. Like the kitchen, begin with the layout. This will include shower and tub design along with the sink and toilet design. You want to pick something you are very comfortable with. Do not just go with what looks pretty, but rather what you can use every day. It helps to think about who will likely use this bathroom and for what. If you are looking for the master bath, go with something both you and your spouse feel comfortable with. When looking at the other bathrooms, think about use before beauty.

happy young couple getting the keys to their custom homeWorking with custom builders to construct a dream home is an exciting and creative process. Between the light fixture selections, the options for built in furniture, and the opportunity to design custom floor plans, prospective homeowners have a lot of decisions to make. This may feel somewhat overwhelming, but it is also really empowering experience. By picking and choosing the elements that they want in their new home, homeowners are participants in the building process. People who choose to go the route of custom building are sure to have a residence that expresses their unique lifestyles and personalities. Palo Verde Homes can help!

The Beginning of the Design Process

When beginning the design process, it is always a good idea to start with a theme. While the theme options for custom floor plans are as diverse as the homeowners themselves, we have outlined a few general style ideas for inspiration.

Floor Plan Styles

Minimalist

Minimalist design is currently en vogue, and for good reason – it is crazy stylish and easy to accomplish. Think straight lines, natural lighting, cool colors, functional utilities, and an open and airy floor plan.

Zen

For a zen vibe, spacing is key. Zen spaces have big windows, minimal walls, and strategically placed fixtures. People who are aiming for a zen look probably want to avoid built in furniture in case they want to rearrange in the future.

Welcoming

For the hosts and hostesses of the world, a welcoming floor plan is ideal. A wide entrance, a kitchen that is close to the dining room, and a comfortable space for entertaining are necessities for hosting. High ceilings are also helpful, as they make the home feel bigger.

Cozy

For those who prefer cuddling up with a book and a blanket to hosting a giant party, a cozy floor plan is the way to go. To accomplish a cozy atmosphere, low ceilings and soft lighting are helpful. A reading nook and a sunroom are added bonuses.

Chic

Think Parisian flat chic. If homeowners are aiming for a sophisticated vibe in their new home but are dealing with a lower amount of square footage, a chic floor plan is is a great option. Partitions and creative storage options can be included in the building process, and these elements can make a small space feel like it is straight out of a European dream.

Get Personal with Custom Floor Plans

Our homes are reflections of our personalities, and there is no better way to be true to ourselves in the home building process than by designing our own floor plans. This takes vision and inspiration, but it is a privilege to be able to decide the ascetic elements that will make up our new home.
