A Custom Home vs A Regular Home

If one were to just merely look at a custom home and regular home, they may think they’re quite similar. In actuality, that couldn’t be more untrue.

Many houses, especially ones in suburban neighborhoods, are what is called production homes. These are houses that use designs that are made to build many similar homes over and over again. This is good for quickly and efficiently making homes to fill out a neighborhood, but it also means the homes lack a lot of individuality and generally look nearly identical to the surrounding homes.

Then there’s custom homes. These homes are one of a kind. Just about everything from the foundation to the type of flooring used is chosen by you. Building a custom house ensures that your home truly reflects you in a way that a standard house just can’t. It also can mean your home is a higher quality than a typical production home since you can choose to build it with materials that will make your home sturdy and built to last.

Why a Custom Bathroom?

Choosing to build a custom bathroom offers you a lot of freedoms that you aren’t granted with a premade bathroom. One such freedom is the ability to decide the layout of your bathroom.

In a custom bathroom you decide the placement of just about everything in your bathroom, so everything is exactly where you want it. Not only that you decide what goes in the bathroom to begin with, this guarantees that your bathroom is one of a kind and will have everything that you and your family need.

Choosing Your Own Materials.

With a premade bathroom you really have no control over the materials used to make your bathroom. That’s not the case with a custom bathroom though.

YOU decide what materials are used when building everything in your bathroom which allows you to only use the highest quality materials. You decide what type of floor you want, the type of cabinets, the tub, etc. that way you not only can ensure that the quality of the materials used is top notch, but you also make sure that your bathroom is designed exactly to your liking.

Custom Bathroom Layouts.

Designing a custom bathroom gives you the control to make your bathroom exactly the way you personally want it. This includes deciding the style and layout of your bathroom. Some examples of different layouts and styles of bathrooms you can consider when building your custom bathroom include:

  • Modern Style: A more clean, sleek, and minimal bathroom style.
  • Craftsman Style: Emphases wood pieces on things like cabinets
  • Victorian Style: A more ornate style of bathroom.
  • Contemporary Style: A more open space and elegant bathroom style.

Building a custom bathroom really allows you the freedom to create the exact kind of bathroom you want. The only limit is your imagination.

Types of Baths/Showers

One of the many things that you get to choose when designing a custom bathroom is the type of bath or shower to put in your bathroom. There are many kinds of tubs and showers to choose from so it’s important to find what works best for you and your family. Here are just a handful of the many different kinds of tubs and showers out there that you can choose to put in your custom bathroom:

  • Alcove Bathtub: A simple and convenient bathtub that is surrounded by 3 walls. These tubs also very often have showerheads towards the top of them.
  • Freestanding Tubs: Tubs that are not connected to the walls and instead sit in the bathroom like a piece of furniture.
  • Jetted Tubs: Bathtubs that can function kind of like a hot tub.
  • Waterfall Shower: A shower where the head of the shower is mounted in the wall or ceiling in a way to create a waterfall like effect.
  • Body Shower: A more luxurious shower where water sprays from all directions of the shower.

Ensuring that your shower or bathtub is suitable for you and your family is crucial. That’s why the freedom granted by building a custom bathroom is so helpful. You get to be the one to decide what tub or shower goes into your bathroom which guarantees you get exactly the kind of tub or shower you need. You can’t really say the same about a premade bathroom.

What are the costs associated with a Custom Home?

Building a custom home does come with some costs that often aren’t present when simply buying a prebuilt house. Custom homes are typically built from scratch meaning everything for the house needs to be built. The foundation, the flooring, the interiors, etc. All of it needs to be built from the ground up. This takes quite a bit of time and money.

Despite all this however, the level of choice and flexibility you have when getting your home built far outweighs the costs. A custom home is truly one of a kind and can be designed to suit your families wants and needs in a way that a prebuilt, production home cannot. Not only that, since decide what materials to use when building your home, you can ensure that you build your house using only the best materials to guarantee the longevity of your home.
