One of the best reasons to build your own home is that you get to customize it. This means creating a space that works for you, whether that includes a home gym, a swimming pool, or a library. It is incredible what can be included in custom-built homes without inflating the cost but making it more fun and functional. It can even add to the resale value.
All you have to do is let your imagination run wild. The following five fun and practical ideas may help you to get started.
Steam Shower Room
Steam showers have become very popular in recent years as they have been shown to offer an array of health benefits. Of course, you need a special room to trap the steam and to dispose of it properly after use. The moisture in steam is not good for the rest of your house.
The advantage of this idea is that it is easy to add into any space in your home and be fun and functional.
The obvious choice when creating a custom house is to have space where you can play games undisturbed. A games room can feature pool tables, dart boards, or focus on computer games and consoles. The choice is yours, but it is a fun and helpful use of space in your home.
Panic Or Safe Room
A panic or safe room can be used for a variety of purposes daily. It also needs to be stocked to allow you to survive for several days or weeks inside it. Alongside this, you can add a sophisticated camera system to the space and make it a great place to get away from everyone!
That makes it practical while still being a useable and fun space in your home. Just let your imagination run wild!
This may not seem like a lot of fun or particularly imaginative. But, a modern walk-in closet can be easily created within your home, and it can incorporate all the latest closet designs, including a smart system to help you choose the right outfit.
It will be far more practical and fun than you think!
There is little more fun at the other end of the scale than a hidden garage, although this is not a DIY project! You’ll want to dig a hole under your house or in front of your home. It will need to have an opening that you can drive your car down but is completely hidden the rest of the time. In addition, the garage should connect to your home, allowing you to enter from underneath.
It’s fun, great to show off, and practical use of limited space while safely storing your car!
There is no limit to what you can create in your home. It would be best if you thought about what you find fun and what is a practical addition.
