Building a custom home comes with many perks, one of which is being able to incorporate what are considered “luxuries” into the design and many times paying considerably less than if you installed the luxury into your existing home. We posted another blog post a few weeks back about our favorite luxuries to consider for your South Texas home, here are a few more that we also love.
Self-Closing Drawers and Cabinets
Your dream kitchen and bathrooms will be all the better with this tiny improvement; not expensive to add, you will love how softly everything closes and how tidy this makes your home.
Underfloor or Radiant Heat Flooring
A subtle addition to your dream home, you’ll definitely notice the difference in the winter months. Imagine stepping out of your shower, or poking your feet out of bed and being met by a soft warmth instead of ice cold. Now that would be a luxury worth paying a bit extra to obtain. The great thing is that radiant heat flooring can be energy efficient as well. You can read more about radiant heat flooring here.
We’ve all heard the hype about double ovens, but have you considered double dishwashers? They’re just the thing for entertaining or large family gatherings. You can install the second one in a bar or in your island, or just about anywhere you find convenient.
Pullout Cabinet Shelving
Pantries and cabinets can benefit from having pullout shelves that help you access those difficult to reach spots in the back. This way you won’t be losing cans of soup, or buying two hand mixers because you can find one. These are easy to install and won’t cost you much more, but we guarantee that you’ll love the convenience of them.
Light Switch Dimmers
Whether you’re installing lights in your new custom home, switching out existing lights, or just want something to combat the harsh lighting in your home, dimmers might be an excellent option for you.
