Building a custom home is a major investment, but one that’s well worth the money. For what you’re paying to build your new house, you want it to stand out from others in your neighborhood—and not just on the outside. You want your interior to take the breath away from anyone who walks inside.
Unfortunately, updating and upgrading everything around the house can significantly increase your overall cost. For that reason, we find many homeowners stick with the basics. We’re here to tell you that you can stun your visitors without breaking the bank.
These tips from your custom home designer can help beautify your new home and help your house stand out without costing a fortune.
Focus on the trim
Trim often gets overlooked when folks are building a new house. They figure it’s a minor aspect of the interior, so there’s no real point in spending money on it—but that’s not the case! The right style and color of trim will draw attention to your walls, windows and staircases.
All it takes is a few buckets of paint on the trim to make your home stand out from any others you may see. Talk to your interior designer about which colors are right for you.
Add some contrast
Speaking of colors, consider contrasting the colors throughout your home. For example, you can paint a single wall a unique color to create a focal point in a room.
You can also create contrast in the kitchen by choosing a stone for the backsplash that’s a different color than that of the other countertops. Subway may be a good choice for your backsplash, as it’s affordable and adds a unique touch to the kitchen.
Light fixtures are another small but mighty aspect of any home. Unique fixtures make each room stand out while providing plenty of light. There are tons of options for fixtures and switches, so making a choice isn’t always easy. Your custom home designer can give you tips and point you in the right direction.
Upgrade to a tile shower
Give your master bathroom a spa-like feel by upgrading to a tile shower. A large shower with tile walls and a nice showerhead provides a luxurious look and feel, but it’s affordable on any budget. Your designer will help you pick out some low-cost tiles that have a high-end feel.
Buy new kitchen appliances
You may be tempted to bring over your old appliances when you’re moving into a new home. Even though that old fridge or oven might still work just fine, we advise investing in some new kitchen appliances. Nice, new appliances can give your kitchen a fresh look and can be wallet-friendly.
