When building a custom home, there are a lot of decisions to juggle. It can be confusing and stressful, but it’s important to remember the end goal. Often in the haze of decision making, people forget about their final design. A good luxury custom home should feel consistent as you move throughout it. Having flow style-wise is what makes a home feel high-end instead of jumbled. So here are a few tips to making sure your custom home flows well!
Keep Flooring Transitions to a Minimum
Flooring plays a major role in custom home design. A great way to make sure your home flows is to use the same flooring throughout. Having consistent flooring in the home will not only help it flow, but it will also make it feel larger! Private spaces such as bathrooms, laundry rooms, and bedrooms can have different flooring, but these days most people prefer living spaces to have the same flooring. A good tip is to have no more than two different floorings visible from any spot in the home!
Stick to One Trim Style
Trim, such as baseboards and crown molding, does more than protect your walls and add style. It’s a key feature in making a home flow together. All trim in the home should be the same style and color. There might be times where you have to change the size due to ceiling height changes, and sometimes it’s acceptable to change trim color in a private room such as a bathroom, but it’s best to keep these changes to a minimum.
Use the Same Interior Doors
Interior doors aren’t often given much thought. Most people prefer for them to blend in, but a select few want them to stand out. Regardless of which you prefer, make sure they’re consistent throughout the home. Only key doors such as pantry doors or exterior doors can be different. This means using the same door handles and hinges for all of them. It’s also a good idea to use the same style and color throughout your custom home as well.
Be Consistent With Style
Defining your custom home’s style can be tricky, especially when eat rooms serves a different purpose. However, it’s important that as people move through your home it feels like they all belong together. There is nothing worse than a custom home that has an ultra-modern kitchen but a traditional dining room. Pick one style and stick to it!
