Five Trending Custom Home Upgrades for 2022

Building your new custom home is one of the most significant investments you’ll probably make in your lifetime. So make sure you plan to include upgrades to your home design that will boost your home’s value. Here are some of the home upgrades that most of our clients choose when designing their new homes.

High Ceilings

Ever walk into a home, and the first thing you notice is how spacious it feels? One of the easiest ways to open up your floor plan is by incorporating high ceilings in your entryway or great room. We offer many plans created to add this option into the design. And with the extra ceiling height, you’ll want to make sure to add a bit of statement lighting to your great room interior design concept.

Covered Outdoor Living Area

More and more outdoor living areas are becoming a part of the home’s interior plan. And because of that, the outdoor living area often contains all the necessary items to stay comfortable outside year-round.

Many of our most popular additions to the outdoor living area include fireplaces, fire pits, and outdoor kitchens. You may also like to include custom landscaping to add to your outdoor area’s overall look and feel. Designing outdoor living areas is one of our specialties, so we’re confident we’ll find the perfect solution for your home.


Walk-in Butler’s Pantry

For a large house, a butler’s pantry is a beautiful upgrade to your kitchen design. Traditionally, butler’s pantries, or scullery’s, were used for staging, service items, and storage. Our modern butler’s pantries also include extra refrigerators, wine storage, and custom shelving for your small packages. Having a butler’s pantry is a great way to keep the kitchen organized when entertaining large groups or hosting dinner parties.

Floor to Ceiling Fireplace

The fireplace is the centerpiece of your great room design. Make a statement by incorporating a ceiling-high fireplace with an eye-catching custom finish. Whether you prefer a stone, tile, or wood finish, we can help you find the right treatment for your home’s interior design.

Oversized Island

With more people working from home, many families find they spend more time in the kitchen. And the island has become a place not only for quick meals but also for doing homework and remote work. So, having an oversized island kitchen is a fantastic way to create an elegant look and give your family more flexibility when using this space.
