Family-Friendly Custom Home Ideas

Preventing Mold in a Waterfront Home

Creating a custom home for your family? Consider these design ideas!

In many instances, people who choose to build a custom home do so to raise their families. If you are creating a family home, your house design will fit for the present and be future-proof for changing purposes as the children grow up. Below, you’ll find several family-friendly custom home ideas that you might want to consider for your custom home in Maryland.

A Mudroom

At the main entryway, you will want to have a convenient space to transition from the outdoors to the indoors. Whether you travel most often through your garage or your front door or both, you can design a custom space for washing up, storing kids’ backpacks and supplies, shoes, etc. With solid, easy-to-clean floors, you have yourself a mudroom.

Convenient Bathrooms

The arrangement of the bathrooms can influence how your kids will function in daily life. The parents typically have a master bathroom connected to the master bedroom. Meanwhile, the kids typically share a bathroom located either in the hallway or between bedrooms. A bathroom located between two bedrooms would be a Jack-and-Jill bathroom.


One of the biggest questions parents must ask is how many bedrooms they should have in a home. Some kids have their own bedrooms, and some share bedrooms until they move out. Both options have excellent pros; ultimately, it is the parents’ decision which way to go.

A Play Room

Having a dedicated room for toys and games is a great family-friendly custom home idea. You can keep the rest of the house free from toys and a space for kids to play. The playroom can double as homework space and eventually become a bonus room for the parents or guests down the road.

A Family Room

A family-friendly custom home would not be complete without a family room. A family room is typically located near the back of the house and may also feature a television. It is a private living room where the family can enjoy one another’s company.
