A home that is in a community will have its perks, and make life easier in some case. That being said, it can also be really restricting on what you can do to your home. Making your home custom to your wants and needs can be challenging but can be done.
Make the Living Space Open
When homes in communities are built there are usually a few floor plans to choose from, making your house basically the same as the next guys. An open floor plan can be achieved to make your home custom to what you like, you can knock down walls, and remove unnecessary wasted space.
Custom landscape can make your home feel homier, and inviting. Simple landscape in the front yard with flower beds, and bushes. The backyard is where you can really customize your home. Add a simple pergola that would be perfect for sunny days to relax, a fire pit with custom seating to enjoy with your friends and family, and an outdoor bar area with a built-in grill, mini fridge, cutting boards, and a sink for easy prep, and clean up.
A lot of homes that are built in communities come with cookie cutter kitchen, but some builders have great incentives and upgrades. If your home didn’t come with those options it can be done with some extra time, and money. The kitchen of your dreams can be a reality. Upgrading the cabinets, or painting them to your desired color, adding some extra tall upper cabinets for extra storage so you aren’t wasting space. If you don’t like the idea of extra-long cabinets you can always add some custom crown molding pieces to cover up the open spaces. You can add any type of counter tops that you like from quartz, granite, or even a butcher’s block. If there is space a island can be all that ties the whole space together.
Upgrade the Master Suite
At the end of the day wouldn’t it be great to go to your master suite that you absolutely love? Making this space custom is easy. Think about all that you want for this area and make it happen. Custom flooring, a magnificent walk in closet with built ins for easy storage, and keeping all of your clothes, and shoes organized. What is a master suite without a master bathroom? This can be a great area with double vanity sinks, a soak in tub, and a shower with the double shower heads. Your master suite will be your favorite space in the whole house.
