Features to Consider Including in Your Custom Home

When considering which features to include in your new custom home there are plenty of routes to go in terms of interior design, but there are certain major features that just about every homebuyer is seriously considering these days. By choosing Glenn Layton Homes, a leading custom home builder in Jacksonville FL, you can feel confident that you’ll get the best custom features anyone could want.

Probably the most common feature that buyers want to customize is the kitchen. Everyone wants that perfect kitchen. Big, spacious chef’s kitchens open to the family room with room for dining and a dine-in island are must haves for most buyers. When it comes to special features, people are looking at soft-close doors and drawers, walk-in pantries, cabinets that hide appliances, while still making them accessible, and in some cases, even butler pantries for those who truly like to entertain. The kitchen is the heart of the home, for both the family and for entertaining. It’s the rare party that doesn’t end up congregating in the kitchen at some point, so you want a space that can house friends and family comfortably and provide plenty of space for preparing and enjoying meals.

Realistically, the home office is becoming more and more important. It’s already been a desirable feature over the past few years, and now it’s almost indispensable. Buyers want a space where they can work in peace and stay focused, while having a setup that meets their needs and perhaps inspires them. A room specifically designed to meet a home office’s needs, in layout and technology, will make work flow easier.

When it comes to coastal homes, one of the biggest custom features is the option of indoor/outdoor living combining seamlessly. Glenn Layton Homes is an expert at creating spaces that turn the outdoors into another living area. Attractive flooring, large windows and doors, as well as lighting, fans, a home entertainment system, and even an outdoor kitchen can expand your living space, letting you make the most of the warmer weather throughout the year. Glenn Layton Homes creates homes that beautifully blur the boundaries between indoors and out.

Finally, one of the biggest changes in the past decade has been the growing inclusion of smarthome technology being built into homes. Buyers are looking for homes with custom technology that not only keeps them safer, but also makes their homes more energy efficient — another huge demand — and also more comfortable and fun. Glenn Layton Homes is a leader in smarthome technology, having built the HGTV SmartHome 2013, and they’ve continued to increase their knowledge of this technology and all of their homes now come with many features as standard. From programmable thermometers to the ability to control music throughout the home, and so much more, today’s custom home buyers want an app for just about everything!

These are just a few of the biggest features in demand for custom homes today. The joy of choosing a custom home builder in Jacksonville FL, such as Glenn Layton Homes, is the fact that you can feel confident that you will get your dream custom home with everything that is important to you.
