Ways to Make a Custom Home Unique

Custom homes are anything but boring. Here are a few unique ideas one can use in their design!

A custom home is already unique in that its rooms, layout, and style have your family’s needs in mind. The big picture of the custom home is automatically special. However, there are other ways to make a home one-of-a-kind, namely in the details. Below are some of the best ways to make a custom home unique indeed.

Built-In Furniture

Built-in furniture, particularly storage, is one way to create a one-of-a-kind house. Craftsman-style homes are especially fond of built-in cabinetry, but any house can enjoy this feature. Common rooms to have it besides the kitchen include the living room, the basement, the home office, and the mudroom. 


Nooks always make a home feel special. Nooks come in all forms, some subtle and some hidden away. One can separate two areas in a house by simply lowering the header, creating a sense of a doorway into another space. One could also use a bay window, a turret, or a loft.


When one thinks of adding gadgets to a house, one usually thinks of smart devices. One could use smart devices to give your lifestyle a whole new dimension; today, one can have a smart tv, smart mirror, smart refrigerator, and much more. On the other hand, one can go “low tech” and have a laundry chute, intercom, phone nook, and pocket shutters.

Grand Staircase

The staircase is one of the most functional features of the house, but has the most potential for ornamentation. It is a feature in its own right and can take on any shape and coloration that you choose. The best staircase will provide the best traffic flow while making a statement.

Specialty Rooms

Everyone has a particular lifestyle, which leads to having particular activities. Some custom homes have specialty rooms to meet those needs. For example, some custom homeowners have a home gym, a room for their prized collections, a hobby room, a game room, or a homeschooling station. The options are wide and far!

Energy Efficiency

Most homes use central heating and cooling systems, but there are other options. To save on the bills, one can consider solar photovoltaic, geothermal systems, or both. Taking energy from the sun and the earth can significantly cut your energy costs. To learn more, contact Shore-Line Construction!
