Upgrades You’ll Want To Consider When Building Your Custom Home

What to Consider With Your Custom Home

A custom home is one of the biggest investments that you will ever make. It should be your personal sanctuary, as well as a reflection of your taste and style, providing you with both comfort and safety.

Custom Home

That being said, there are a lot of decisions that come with building a custom home and the add-on options can be overwhelming. The following are some upgrades to consider that will help add luxury to your custom home as well as helping you get the most out of your investment:


  • Islands – The kitchen is truly the “heart of the home” for today’s busy families. It is a place to gather, entertain, eat a meal, and share stories. It allows more room for cooking prep, extra storage, extra seating, and is a perfect “homework zone” for kids.
  • Countertops – Many custom home builders offer a wide selection of granite countertops to suit any taste. Considering that the kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the home, and the best upgrade investment in terms of resale value, it always pays to upgrade your countertops.
  • Backsplash – A backsplash adds character to your kitchen, and can either blend in or contrast with your current cabinetry and color scheme, depending on the look you wish to achieve.


  • Cabinets – The bathroom is the second most important room in your home in terms of return on investment. Be sure to choose cabinetry that is durable as well as aesthetically pleasing, and adding decorative hardware adds additional style.
  • Granite Countertops – As one of the busiest rooms in the home, a bathroom countertop sees its share of water. Upgrading the countertops can actually save you money from having to replace cheaper ones down the road that warp with water damage over time.
  • Whirlpool Tub – In addition to being a relaxing soak that many custom homeowners cite as their favorite upgrade, whirlpool bathtubs are known to relieve stress and anxiety, improve circulation, provide pain relief, and have positive effects on your skin.


  • Hardwood or Ceramic Flooring – While hardwood floors continue to reign in today’s custom home marketplace, it is a matter of personal style and taste. Each have their advantages, are easy to clean, and allow for a more “open floor” feeling. Both hardwood and ceramic flooring options have a variety of styles and finishes that are sure to match any taste and decor.
  • Custom Lighting – Nothing enhances the interior of a custom home more than strategically placed lighting. Whether it be recessed lighting in the kitchen or exterior lighting that enhances your landscaping, custom lighting adds both a warm touch and a dramatic flair at the same time.

The upgrades that you decide on for your custom home should ultimately be the ones that you feel suit your needs and your lifestyle. Your custom home builder can sit down and discuss with you the various home upgrades available, and help you choose which fit your needs and your budget.
