Our 5 Favorite Customizing Features When Custom Building

Perhaps one of the most exciting perks of custom building your home is the freedom to customize the space. Having the option to customize your home allows you to truly reflect your family’s lifestyle, easily matching the home design to your needs. This is the time to get creative within the space, taking full advantage of working with a builder who is just as determined. The design team at Oberer Homes are sharing our 5 favorite optional features when custom building!

Include a Game Room

If your selected floor plan does not have a game room, consider adding one to the existing design. Including a game room in your home is great to keep kids and guests entertained. Who doesn’t love a fun game of ping pong or foosball? If you’re interested in adding this extra space into your floor plan, we encourage you to discuss the idea with our design team!

Explore Styles of Flooring

When customizing your new home, every choice is yours! Exploring different flooring options is a fun step where you can get creative with your decisions. Perhaps you’re attracted to hardwood in the kitchen and dining area, but prefer soft carpet in the bedrooms. Or maybe you envision a bold, black tile in your master bath. Taking time to browse various textures, stains, and hues will help set the tone of the house and prepare you for decorating accordingly.

Add a Finished Basement

A basement can be included into the design of most Oberer Home floor plans with no issues, depending on the lot selected. Adding a finished basement gives your family extra space, allowing you to make use of the space however you please. A few ideas include:

  • Man cave
  • Workout area
  • Extra storage space
  • Extra living space
  • Home movie theater
  • Spare playroom

Incorporate a Home Office

If your chosen floor plan doesn’t include a study, don’t hesitate to add one in your design! As we previously mentioned, we believe in your home should truly reflect your lifestyle. Adding a home office is great for those who work from home or crave privacy. This quiet space is perfect for catching up on news, kids completing homework, and storing laptop and files in an organized area.

Choose Kitchen Appliances

For those who love the idea of cooking and entertaining, choosing new and updated kitchen appliances is an excited step! This is the perfect time to take advantage of exploring features that are available and match your needs. Perhaps your home is the gathering point of friends and family, where a double oven is more beneficial than a single oven. Building a new home is the perfect opportunity to choose your dream kitchen appliances.
