Popular Features for Custom Homes 2023

2023 tastes mean many custom homes have these features!

Designing and building a custom home is a dream for many, and what that custom home will look like depends on each family or person involved. While everyone is unique, some trends come and go with the lifestyle of the time. What are the most popular features for custom homes in 2023? Find out here.

Open-Concept Kitchens

An open-concept kitchen has been popular for at least a decade now and continues to be the most desired kitchen layout today. It allows adults to supervise their children or aging parents while preparing meals and to entertain and engage with guests. 

Functional Laundry Rooms

Laundry rooms are also a must; a full laundry room would contain a washer, dryer, large sink, and storage for cleaning supplies. It might even include the bottom of a laundry chute and a basket for dirty clothes. Other useful tools to add are an iron, ironing board, and drying rack.

Ample Outdoor Living Spaces

Spending time outdoors is healthful for the mind, body, and soul. Whether you use the space to work outside or get away from the screen, it can be the best meeting point between outdoors and indoors, including covered or enclosed areas, an outdoor kitchen, and much more.

Wet or Dry Bars

The open kitchen is not the only room in which to entertain guests. If you host guests in your front living room or basement rec room, a wet or dry bar would give convenient access to snacks and drinks, alcoholic or non-alcoholic.

Bonus Rooms

People usually want to have a house that will be their home for many years. It can see their family through raising children to retirement and beyond. Plus, needs may change. Homeowners today are looking for rooms that are flexible in purpose.

Dedicated Home Office

That being said, a dedicated home office is high on the must-have list, especially with the lasting legacy of remote work. It is better for many to have work and home spaces separate. If you have clients that visit you, your home office could use the front or a separate entrance.

Unique Bathroom Features

Bathrooms are starting to change. It is a place to feature unique elements and details such as wall-mounted faucets, luxurious bathtubs, and separate toilet rooms.

Farmhouse/Craftsman Elements

For a time, the interior design world focused on industrial, modern styles with neutral tones, concrete, and sleek lines. Today, natural wood is making a comeback.
