One of the main reasons why people want to oversee the building of their homes is so that they have the option of customization. Customizations can make your home feel truly unique and personalized when you work with custom home builders.

A recent survey conducted by the National Association of Home Builders reports that some common customizations include energy-efficient features (90%), separate laundry rooms (81%), walk-in pantries (78%), and home offices (76%). Let’s take an in-depth look at some of the most commonly requested customizations custom home builders can help you with.

Main Level Primary Bedrooms

Having the master bedroom placed on the main level is an increasingly popular home customization. Many families are choosing this option so aging in place and growing with the home is that much easier. A primary bedroom on the main floor gives you greater flexibility if you have mobility issues or if you simply don’t want to deal with steps all day long as you move about your home.

Nine-Foot Ceilings

Ceiling height trends come and go depending on a lot of factors. Nine-foot ceilings, however, are currently a popular customization option. These ceilings can make your home feel bigger without going too extreme. A 9-foot ceiling is still a decent height at which to appropriately heat and cool your home without issues as well.

Open Concept Floorplans

In the past, many homes had each room severely separated from every other room. Today, an open concept is preferred. This often involves the removal of walls altogether, especially in the living area, dining area, and kitchen area. Combining all of these into one large area where everyone can interact and spend time together is very important to many families.

Bonus Rooms

Bonus rooms are often sought out by people having a custom home built. A bonus room is often not considered to be a bedroom, but it can be used for many purposes. Bonus rooms are often found over garages or in other areas of the home in which space would have simply been wasted otherwise. A bonus room expands the livable space in the home without committing the space to any particular purpose. It can be used for storage, an office, a play area, or even a pet’s toy area.
