12 New Home Construction Features to Consider Adding

 
 

You’re getting ready to build a new home, and you couldn’t be more excited. You want to have the home of your dreams, so consider adding a few extra features to the plans.

1.     Built-in Storage

It is much easier to add closets, cabinets, under-the-stair systems, and garage shelves when the home is being built. Think of all of your storage needs and add them to the home’s plans.

2.     On-Demand Water Heater

You’ll never have a cold shower again if you go with an on-demand water heater. It heats water as you need it, so you can stay in the shower as long as you like without it running cold.

3.     Pullout Cabinet

Pullout cabinets provide you with extra counter space as needed. Pull the cabinet out when you need some counter space, and then slide it back underneath the counters when you’re done.

4.     Wiring for a Backup Generator

No one likes to go without power. Have the builder add wiring for a backup generator so you’ll have an extra power source. Your builder can also add the generator, or you can add it to the home later.

5.     Technology

Built-in technology, such as voice-controlled lighting and remote blinds, can make your life easier. Build a cutting-edge home by adding some cool technology.

6.     Central Vacuum

Forget about lugging your vacuum around. Have the builder add a central vacuum in a hidden spot in your home. Then, you can pull it out whenever you need it.

7.     Jetted Laundry Sink

You might have a top-of-the-line washing machine, but you’ll have to hand wash items from time to time. Make it easier with a jetted laundry sink.

8.     Drain in the Garage

You might want to clean the dogs or your car in the garage, and that’s much easier with a drain in the floor. The water will run right down the drain so cleanup will be a cinch.

9.     Driveway Alarm

If you don’t like to be surprised when people come to the door, add a driveway alarm. That way, you’ll always know when someone pulls up.

10.     Outdoor Kitchen

An outdoor kitchen adds extra value and function to your home. You can even have your builder add an outdoor fireplace and other nice features.

11.     Keyless Entry Systems

Standard locks and keys are going out of style. Now, more people are using keyless entry systems. When you have one of these systems, you can also tell family and friends how to get into your home if necessary.

12.     Sponge Storage Drawer

Keep your sponges handy but out of sight with a sponge storage drawer in the kitchen. Use the area right under the sink to stow your sponges away until you need them.

These features will enhance your home and help you get more out of it. Let us know what features you want to add so you can have the perfect home.
