Six Features Busy Families Need in a Home

At Kimberley Development, we love to build and remodel homes to meet all your family needs. Here are some practical features we think families like to see in their home.

Mudroom Bench/Locker System

We love to stay organized! Lockers are a great way for each member of the family to have their own designated spot. No more tossing your coat or throwing your shoes in the corner. Plus, look how amazing these locker systems looks!

Drop Zone

Everyone from a single home buyer, to a family of 5, to empty nesters need a “catch all” counter. A place to put car keys, mail, dock your phone and so much more.


Having a designated place to store small appliances, food and snacks help eliminate clutter throughout the kitchen. Most our plans feature walk-in pantries and some even have hidden doors which help give the kitchen a seamless look. The amount of customization that goes into your pantry is up you.

Soaking Tub

Do you have those days where you need some “me” time? Cue in the soaking tub! Nothing better than a book, glass of wine and a hot bath after a long day. While standard tubs are usually sufficient for kids, they generally don’t hold enough water to cover an adult, nor are they very comfortable. Soaking tubs however are usually longer, wider and deeper and will allow water to cover most or all of an adult.

Finished Basement

A finished basement allows for extra space for the kids, adults or the entire family. And, if you’re like some of us at Kimberley Development with kids, toys seem to accumulate faster than we’d like! There are great ways to craft practical storage to accommodate any and all your needs. Many of our buyers use their basements to entertain, accommodate extra bedrooms, house their own in-home gym equipment and/or create an in-home office space.


A fenced in back yard is a great way to safely spend these spring days outside. Only thing better would be to add an in-ground pool!
