When it comes to remodeling your home or building a new one, you have two options. You can use builder-grade materials and plans, or you can use custom materials and design. If you choose the first option, you can spend less money, but your home will be more “cookie cutter,” having features that are premade and less expensive. Unfortunately, often these do not fit your house and lifestyle. If you go with custom materials and design, you will have several benefits.
First, when you choose to custom architectural design your project, you get a design that is unique, unlike any of your neighbors. So often a neighborhood feels like repeated design down multiple streets. With a custom design, your house will not feel like the rest. It will be uniquely yours. Your house will stand out if you ever put it on the market.
Fitting to Your Needs
Second, custom design suits your needs and how you live in your space. A large kitchen, for example, is great, but if it does not fit how you work and what you need for the way you cook, it is just a simple kitchen. If you design it to fit your lifestyle, you can add the types of cabinets and features that will make being in your kitchen all the more enjoyable. There is also the added bonus of not having wasted space because you have designed it to suit your needs.
Third, when you hire a custom designer, that usually means quality work. The designer has put the effort into your design and the materials chosen and knows you and your needs. That knowledge will usually translate into quality workmanship and a quality home.
If you have the money to go beyond builder grade, go custom. Your home will truly be yours to enjoy.
