3 Unique Features to Build into Your Custom Home, Ewa, Hawaii

When you’re developing a custom home design for your new house, you have the unique opportunity to include features that you’ve always wanted. Consider options that are both functional and fun to fit your space to your family and lifestyle. Below, explore some popular features, including a few found in luxury home design.

Ideas for Your Dream Home Design

1. A Hidden Room

Using a built-in bookshelf or a seamless door in the wall, your home designer can create an instant hidden room. Create one for the kids’ playroom and one for yourself. Try using it as a movie theater loft, a speakeasy bar to entertain in, or even as a panic room so you can feel safer in your home.

2. First-Floor Master Bedroom

You may not mind climbing the stairs to your bedroom now, but it could become more difficult as you get older. With the boomer generation entering retirement, many home buyers are looking for homes that offer single-level living. This means that even if you don’t intend to retire in your custom home, it can make your home more desirable when you choose to sell.

3. Indoor-Outdoor Living

When you live in a climate that allows you to enjoy the outdoors all year round, it’s wise to take advantage of it. An outdoor living area expands your home’s square footage. Consider installing huge sliding or folding doors in the kitchen or main living area to an outdoor deck. You can include a covered outdoor living room or even a full kitchen.
