Custom Home Features for Busy Families

When building a custom home or working with clients on large home renovation projects, we incorporate features into the design that are unique to the homeowner’s lifestyle. Our experienced team is able to create a unique, comfortable space for you and your family that is completely functional and fits your specific needs. Here are a few practical features we love to incorporate in our designs.

Mudroom or Drop Zone

An area dedicated to jackets, shoes, and all of the last minute items you grab for when walking out the door can save you the hassle of messy kitchen and living room floors. Lockers are a great way for each member of the family to have their own designated spot. No more tossing your coat on a chair or throwing your shoes in the closet. Everything is hidden away in an easily accessible spot that is convenient for families who are always on the go.


Pantries come in all different shapes and sizes. We design this area depending on your preference. Cabinets and drawers can be added to store small appliances, and open shelving is great for food and snacks. Having a decent size pantry eliminates clutter on countertops and gives you more storage options to organize.

Soaking Tub

After a long day, it’s essential that you wind down and give yourself a moment to yourself. A soaking tub brings the relaxation of a spa into your own home. While standard tubs are usually sufficient for kids, they generally aren’t comfortable for an adult. Soaking tubs are usually longer, wider, and deeper making it a great bonus feature in the primary bath. Plus, they look amazing as a focal point in a bathroom design.

Finished Basement

A finished basement allows extra room for gatherings, privacy, and storage. Craft the basement design after your hobbies, interests and family life to make the most out of the space available to you. A finished basement can be designed to adapt to your growing family, can be a great space to accommodate visitors, and gives you the extra square footage if you enjoy entertaining.
