Must-Have Features For Your Custom Home Utah

Congratulations on your plans to build a custom home in Utah! This is an exciting time, and there are many possibilities for making your dream home a reality. As you plan your custom home, be sure to consider some of the must-have features that are popular among Utah homeowners.

Home Office

The past few years have brought about many changes in our work. With more and more people working remotely, a home office has become a desirable feature for many homeowners. You can customize it to feature the style and amenities that will help you be productive, including built-in shelving, soundproofing, and natural light.

If you plan to work from home, include a dedicated space for your office in your custom home plans. Add an outside door that gives you direct access to your own private patio or garden for a real treat.

First-Floor Laundry

Laundry isn’t the most exciting part of homeownership, but it is a necessary evil. Like most homeowners, you probably don’t want to lug your laundry up and down the stairs daily. When you’re planning your custom home, be sure to include a first-floor laundry room.

Dress it up with custom cabinets and a sink to make it more functional and attractive. This will make doing laundry much more convenient, and it can also be an excellent space for storage. Also, consider a window to let in some natural light and fresh air while you work.

Attached Mudroom

We know Utah for its winter weather, so an attached mudroom is a must-have feature for many homeowners. This great space stores your winter gear, including boots, coats, and hats. You can also use it as a place to take off your shoes before coming into the house, which will help keep your home clean.

Many newer homes have a bathroom off the mudroom, so you can also use it as a place to clean up before coming inside. Rather than a half-bath, consider a full bath with a shower, so you can really make use of this space.

Add Heated Flooring

Nothing is worse than cold feet in the winter. Heated flooring is a luxurious custom home feature that keeps your feet toasty warm all winter. You can add this feature to your mudroom, bathroom, or any other space in your home where you want to keep the floor warm. The most common type of heated flooring is radiant floor heating, which uses electricity or water to heat the floor.

These are just a few must-have features you should consider as you plan your custom home in Utah. With so many possibilities, you can make your dream home a reality. Contact us today to get started on your custom home plans. We can’t wait to help you create the home of your dreams.
