bh8-DSC_0593When you’re deciding on one of the many custom home builders in NC to build your dream home part of the appeal is being able to customize your home for your lifestyle and taste. There is a huge range of options for people who want a custom home, but when it comes to really pulling together a unique and personal style that will make your home feel like it was designed just for you, the details are what matter.  

Custom details that are personalized for your taste and lifestyle are what really give a custom home the function that you want and a sense of familiarity from the minute you walk in the door. So, when you’re designing a custom home that you want to truly reflect your personal style, pay attention to finishing details like: 

Flooring To Suit Any Taste And Budget 

The flooring that you choose really sets the tone of your home. From dark luxe hardwoods to sunny low-maintenance laminates, customizing your flooring is one finishing touch that will define the look of your home. With so many beautiful and practically maintenance free flooring options in a wide range of prices it will be easy to find a color and material that will give your home the function that you need while defining your unique personal style.  

Cabinetry and Hardware To Make Your Home Functional And Beautiful 

One of the best ways to customize your home is to have custom cabinetry created. No home can have too much storage, but a custom home allows you to put custom storage where it makes sense for you and your lifestyle.  

You might choose to have custom storage and cabinetry put in the playroom so that your kids can have plenty of space to store their toys, or you might want a totally customized storage system built into your master bedroom closet to suit your style and accommodate your favorite wardrobe items like shoes, ties, or hats. Consider having some custom cabinetry built into the mudroom so that each person in the family has a designated place to put their shoes, coats, backpacks, and other items. 

 You can work with your custom home designer to have storage and cabinetry built into any part of the home. Don’t forget to choose custom hardware for those cabinets as well. Small details like cabinetry hardware and crown molding have a big impact on the style of a home.  

Lighting That Makes Your Home Unique  

Another finishing touch that personalizes your custom home is the lighting fixtures that you choose. From track lighting to under cabinet lighting, there are lots of options for builtin lighting that will give you additional function in your home. And lighting fixtures such as farmhouse style lighting or industrial light fixtures can give your new custom home a unique style that will be all yours. Smart lighting is also a very ontrend finish for this year.  

Reclaimed Materials Bring Vintage Warmth To New Homes  

Nothing makes custom homes more unique than one of a kind reclaimed materials used throughout the home. When you have a custom home built you can use unique reclaimed doors, barn wood flooring, wood beams, and other items to make your home as unique as you are. Reusing old front doors from vintage homes or installing vintage barn doors in places like the bathroom, mudroom, or laundry room is a fun way to make your home really stand out. You can also have reclaimed wood used as molding or wainscoting in the home to give it a more personal touch. If you choose one of the top custom home builders in NC, they should always be willing to work with you and incorporate repurposed materials into your home.
