What Rooms Should You Splurge on in the Building Process?

So you’re finally ready to build your dream home. You’ve spent days and days looking at existing homes, possibly growing frustrated that every floor plan lacks that little something you’re looking for in the kitchen, or the bedroom is just a smidge too small.

Take a second to consider that one thing that will get you to ‘just right.’ If you had to pick a room to splurge on, which would it be?

The way to the heart is through the stomach.

Do you enjoy cooking? Are you looking for a gathering place for your family, a place to enjoy each other’s company as you eat, make messes, create exotic meals? We spend a lot of time in our kitchens, so it’s no surprise that an updated kitchen is a top selling point for many buyers. You can’t go wrong with a custom kitchen, a place where so many memories are made, and the added resale value is a big bonus.



A quiet sanctuary.

Most of us dream of a custom master bathroom. From an oversized walk-in shower with any number of shower heads, to a walk-in closet bigger than your bedroom, an ensuite bathroom is the perfect getaway. It can be a place to gear up for your morning, or decompress after a long day. The master bathroom is a great option when picking a room to splurge on when building your custom home.

The family hangout.

Whether it’s watching the big game or having friends over to play cards, splurging on your living room is always a good idea. For some, a spacious living room is the single most important room in your custom home. Your living room is where the fun happens, and it’s where you’re most comfortable. Add a custom fireplace, laminate floors, and big picture windows to make this room the center of your home.




A not-so-quiet sanctuary.

The garage. Rows of power tools hanging from their individual pegs on the wall, an engine block in pieces on a tarp off to one side, the quiet buzz of the small television mounted on the wall. For some, the garage is the perfect room to splurge on and is where many wonderful creations are made and repaired. Custom shelving along one wall, a perfectly sealed floor, and a small heating unit so that you can work in the winter are all well worth the costs. Don’t neglect this underutilized section of your home!
