12 Luxury Custom Home features you didn’t know you wanted

The beauty of being a Custom Home Builder is that our menu of options increases with every client’s “Wish List”. We not only embrace these requests but also have featured some of them in our Model Homes.

Below you’ll find a list of our latest upgrade requests. Which ones would you like to add to your Wish List?

 Attic/ Whole House

Full spray foam encapsulation: whether it be 100 or 30 degrees outside, going into your attic doesn’t have to be a dreaded seasonal chore. Fully encapsulating the attic makes your home more energy efficient, gives you more storage space, and protects your cooling and heating system from the blasting heat.

 Wine/ Bourbon tasting room: no matter your drink of choice, having an area where you can display your collection or share your favorite bottle with friends, these designated areas are getting our homeowners attention.

 Storage lift: usually installed in the garage, this storage lift system safely lifts your storage items up to the attic and lowers them back down to the floor level when needed. It eliminates the time consuming, dangerous task of lifting or pushing items up and down your pull-down attic stairway.

Home automation system: Imagine being able to control most components of your home from your phone, no matter where you are. Lights on and off? Check! Open and close the door remotely? Yes! Gone on vacation and forgot to change the setting on your AC? No problem! With a home automation system, accessing your home can literally be at the touch your fingertips.

Kitchen

Under counter filtered water dispenser or Whole House water filter: Improve the taste, the quality and reduce harmful contaminants from your drinking water.

Large (or even a double) kitchen island: The kitchen is the center of the action in most houses. And our Homeowners list many of the benefits a large island brings: casual seating, more storage and extra workspace to name a few. Whether you use it for a gathering of friends or to gather up ingredients a large island is one of the most popular requests nowadays.

Large pantries: Clutter-free is in! By adding a countertop to your pantry, your kitchen has a better chance of looking like the one you fell in love with at the Model Home. You can still access the small appliances you use every day like the toaster and coffee maker but without having that mess visible. Bonus that if you close the door, your whole house doesn’t end up smelling like the food you have in your Instapot.

 Prep kitchen: If a large pantry has become the standard amenity, we’re starting to see an increase in requests for a prep kitchen by adding a second dishwasher, sink and even a refrigerator to the pantry. For our homeowners who enjoy entertaining a large number of people, having the ability to have the food prepped behind close doors is one of those dream items on the list.

Bathrooms

Electric Towel warmers: complete the comfort and convenience of your spa-like bathroom by adding the luxury of freshly warm towels.

   

Laundry Room

Dog washing station: Many of our clients are opting to adding a dog-washing station in the laundry room for when Fido gets muddy. You get a clean dog without leaving the house or risking a backache.

Patio

Outdoor Living Area: Considering how many mild weather days we have in N. Texas, more and more homeowners are increasing the square footage of their patios and turning them into another living area. Popular layouts include room for seating area, dining and cooking station.

Automatic drop down shade screens: As seen in our Colleyville Model Home, these automated drop-down shades can decrease the amount of sunlight in your porch – perfect for west-facing homes- and keep the bugs out so you can enjoy your dinner al fresco. This feature works best if decided before framing stage.

As you can see the possibilities are endless when you build a Providential Custom Home. Call us today at 817-724-7777 and let’s discuss your Wish List!

Benefits of a Total Home Makeover

You love where you live. You have great neighbors. The kids don’t want to change schools. You have an amazing lot. Your same house new would cost twice what you are paying.

Yet, your house feels dated. Pinterest and HGTV are not much help because let’s face it, while remodeling a bathroom here and another room there sounds more economical the prospect of having to live in a construction zone for months is not at all appealing.

If this sounds familiar, a Complete Home Makeover might be right for you.

What is a Complete Home Makeover?

Also known as Whole House Renovation, it’s the term used when you add, change or remodel 50 percent or more of your living space under one remodeling agreement – as opposed to several remodeling agreements for different projects over a longer span of time.

Providential Custom Homes specializes in larger, un-occupied and more all-encompassing projects like room additions, interior and exterior major renovations. A Complete Home Makeover has many benefits:

 

·        CONVENIENCE:

As daunting a task as it sounds, imagine having it all done at once. Imagine not having to live in the chaos. Imagine not having to schedule workers when someone is home. You move out, we take care of everything, you move back into a house that looks and feels brand new.

·        COHESIVE DESIGN:

Practicality is not the only benefit. With a Whole Home remodel, you can ensure design consistency throughout, making the transitions from room to room seamless. While standalone rooms like bedrooms can be independently designed, the main areas of the house usually connect and thus it becomes apparent when one area has had a facelift and the others are waiting for their turn.

·        COST SAVINGS: Sure, overall a whole house renovation will cost more than say, a kitchen remodel. But if you were to quote all the separate projects you want done, chances are you’ll be saving a lot when you do it all at once.

Building Trends: Multi-generational living, AKA the “In-law suite”

One of the benefits of multi-generation living is having daily interactions and creating memories

We have been getting more and more requests for “In-law-Suites”. A common occurrence in other countries, Americans have started to see the benefits of being closer to aging parents while being able to oversee their care in a more comfortable and practical way.

 If you are considering multi-generational living, here are some common themes we are seeing throughout the projects we have recently completed:

  • Independent living:

More than just a room for Grandma and Grandpa to stay in, the latest requests have incorporated features like a separate living area, kitchenette, large bathrooms and independent entrances, allowing them privacy and a sense of their own space.

  • One room living:

One of the benefits of the larger lots Providential currently offers is the possibility of building most – if not all- of your living space in one floor. This helps not only with the livability of the house but with resale as well. Having the “fun” areas of the home on the first floor - like Game and/or Media Rooms - creates an inviting atmosphere where the different generations can gather without obstacles.

  • Versatility:

Yet another benefit of an ‘In-Law-Suite’ is that it does not apply only for older parents. Kids who move back after college, guests who need to stay for an extended amount of time or grown children who come to visit for the Holidays with their families might all appreciate the extra privacy and space.
