custom homeThere several things you need to consider when it comes to custom home building. From the layout to the design finishes, the features you decide to add to your custom home will be with you for several years. This is the time you need to be creative and put in a few distinct features that you won’t be able to find if you buy a preowned home.

Features To Add To Your New Custom Home

Customized Shelves

The first one on the list is custom shelving. If they are well-built and properly placed, your custom shelves could be one of the focal points in your house. Custom shelves can serve a lot of purposes. Consider the rooms where you can use more storage space and work with your custom home builder to determine if there are any other options that you can add in.

Slab Versus Crawl Space Foundation

If you have a sloped lot wherein you can use the footers to level the flooring of the house then a crawl space is an ideal solution. It is also a wonderful option for places that are prone to earthquakes. If you are located in an area with a drier climate or a place that is prone to flooding then a crawl space foundation is a wonderful option as well.

Meanwhile, a concrete slab foundation is highly recommended in areas that are wet but not prone to flooding. There’s a vapor barrier under the slab and this will discourage mold growth.

Higher Ceilings

Taller ceilings are one of the features you have to consider. High ceilings offer a different look and feel. It appears luxurious and gives your home a dramatic flair once you add in the wall art and other fixtures.

Laundry Room Upstairs

Unless you have a single-story home, taking the laundry up and down the stairs isn’t something that you would want to do. You can make your laundry much less of a chore if you have a laundry room upstairs. It will also make this task much more convenient.


Adding a mudroom is also a good idea. It’s a place where you can hang your coat or keep your muddy shoes. It doesn’t have to be big. It can be as small as a closet. What’s important is the function it serves.

His and Hers closets

Why share a closet if you can have your own? Install a closet for you and another one for your spouse. Make sure that your closets will be big enough to accommodate all your stuff. This is a popular option these days, especially among those who wish to build a custom home.

Cabinet Lighting

Make the cabinets in your living room, bedroom, or kitchen look visually appealing by adding in and under cabinet lights. You can use LED strips or bulbs and have them wired to the main switch so you can easily turn them on or off.

Heated Floors

Radiant heated floors are also becoming increasingly popular among custom homes in Myrtle Beach. They are wonderful additions to your bathrooms. They can also be used to warm floor in areas of your new home that are cooler like those built over slabs.
