Top Design Areas Where Your Custom Home Can Shine 

When designing your custom home with a Calgary custom home builder, there are many areas where your home can shine. Key rooms to focus on include your kitchen area, great room, and master suite. You should also consider extra features to make your home custom and functional to you, including; a mudroom, skylights, and perhaps a specialty room to match your lifestyle. 

Designing Your Custom Kitchen Area

The kitchen is a well-loved room, and so it has ample opportunity to shine in your custom home design. So what are important features to consider incorporating? 

  • Walk-in pantry: A walk-in pantry in your custom kitchen will allow for optimal storage and functionality. Consider varying shelf heights and mixing open shelves and cabinets. 
  • Countertops: Quartz is a trending material for countertops as it is durable, easy to clean, and stylish. Multi-functional islands are recommended as they allow for surface area, seating, and storage all in one space. 
  • Traffic: A Calgary custom home builder can help you design a layout for your kitchen that allows for easy flow of foot traffic; accommodating space for family baking night!
