Best Custom Home Features in 2020

Customized Bonus Rooms

Every home comes standard with the essentials, such as bathrooms and a kitchen. However, to truly enhance your living space to reflect your unique tastes, homeowners must think beyond the basic necessities and incorporate spaces that facilitate your passions. As such, flex space within a home has become a cherished commodity. Not only can these spaces transition from one purpose to another as our needs change, they can be utilized as bonus rooms to embrace the ways that we spend our time at home. Convert your bonus room to a home theater for movie night or try a studio for yoga and meditation. No matter what you are into, flex space is perfect for filling with preferred features.


Coat racks and closets simply are not cutting it anymore and homeowners are now coveting mudrooms instead. These spaces offer a practical and stylish alternative to placemats of old, and help homeowners keep their front entryways clean by providing space via coat hooks, shoe storage, and a cubby system for any messy clothing and equipment being brought in from outside. Mudrooms are perfect for separate storage for everyone’s respective possessions, as well as cleaning supplies and any other miscellaneous items you may not have a spot for.

Updated Kitchen Finishes

As the heart of the home, it is important for the kitchen to be as beautiful as it is functional. Touching it up with some new finishes can help elevate your kitchen to something more special. Under-cabinet lighting does not just illuminate your prep space, it also adds some extra wow factor: the increased lighting will help your counters and cabinets pop. Furthermore, turn your kitchen into the best hangout spot in the home with an oversized island or breakfast bar, where people can pull up a seat and relax amidst the aroma of a home-cooked meal.

Stand-Alone Bathtubs

Add a fresh dash of luxury to your master bath with the addition of a stand-alone tub. Our bathrooms should be our spa-like sanctuaries that we are able to retreat to for some relaxation, and there is no better way than to sink into the warm water of a standing bathtub. Adding this to your bathroom is a surefire way to boost the comfort and luxury levels right away.

Covered Outdoor Spaces

More than ever, families are utilizing outdoor spaces to make the most of their enjoyable climates or scenic surroundings. Open up directly from your living room into your covered patio with big glass doors that allow the fresh sunlight right in. Also, decorate your patio with cozy design elements and furniture, such as big sofas, that muddy the transition outdoors so that you never have to compromise any comfort of the indoors. Add a grill or wet bar for the perfect summer luau or try a fireplace to keep warm even outside during the winter months.
