The smallest details can make all the difference. See these ideas to get inspired.

A custom home isn’t just a utilitarian place for you to sleep at night. It is a work of art, a home, and a place built just for you. When you build a custom home, you have the chance to make it exactly how you like it, from the big picture to the minute detail. If you are looking for ideas, here are some fabulous ways to add details to your custom home.

Windows and Doors

Windows and doors can be standard of custom. It doesn’t hurt to have a mix of both. You could order a handmade front door, for instance, or install stained glass windows at distinct locations throughout your home. Curved or circular windows add interest as well.

Ceiling Trims and Baseboards

While it is true that there are only so many truly unique ceiling trim and baseboard patterns, having them can elevate your home to new heights of luxury and personal taste. Adding beadboard, shiplap, or another type of wall paneling in specific rooms, like a guest bedroom or a bathroom, will also give your home a custom feel.

Indoor and Outdoor Railings

Stair railings and deck railings alike are fantastic opportunities to add details to your custom home. Railings can be as minimalistic or decorative as you prefer, and either choice will be a custom one. They could be mere geometric lines or have ornaments welded onto them.


Speaking of railings, staircases are another home customization opportunity. The staircase from the first to the second floor can be as hidden or grandiloquent as you please. It can be modern and industrial or traditional and floral. 

Unique Features

Adding features you aren’t likely to see in other homes is another way to make your home stand out through details. For example, consider adding a wood-burning fireplace in the bedroom, or inserting a bay window seat in the living room. Give your kitchen a climbing wall, or hang a statement chandelier in the bathroom.

Finishing Touches

Don’t underestimate the difference small details like your hardware or walls can make in a room. Wallpapers, paint colors, flooring choices, and doorknobs alone can completely change how your home looks and feels.
