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 Kitchen?

There are a lot of reasons you’d want to have a custom kitchen, not the least of which is the control you have over the look of your kitchen. When building a custom kitchen, you get to make your kitchen truly yours in a way you wouldn’t be able to if you didn’t get a custom kitchen.

With a custom kitchen YOU decide just about everything about your kitchen. You decide the look, placement, size, etc. of everything in your kitchen which ensures that your kitchen is one of a kind. Not to mention getting a custom-built kitchen guarantees that your kitchen has everything that you and your family need in it.

Choosing Your Own Materials.

Building a custom kitchen means you get decide how your kitchen is made. This includes the quality of material used to bring your dream kitchen to life. A custom kitchen can ensure that the materials used to build your kitchen are of the highest possible quality.

Stock kitchens just can’t guarantee the quality of your kitchen quite like a custom one can. You decide what materials the cabinets, island, countertop, etc. which ensures that the quality of everything in your kitchen is to your liking. The ability to choose the highest quality materials when building a custom kitchen also will help to make your kitchen last. Everything in a stock kitchen may be made of inferior materials which could lead to problems. Custom building your kitchen, however, can guarantee that your kitchen is made up of only the highest quality materials which means your kitchen is built to last.

Custom Kitchen Layouts.

With a custom kitchen, you get to decide just about everything about it, meaning you also get to decide the look and layout of your kitchen to make it truly your own. When deciding the look of your kitchen there’s many different styles to consider. Some examples of different kitchen styles and layouts include:

  • Bright and White: A kitchen style where your cabinets, counter, etc. are all white.
  • Dark and Moody: A style where everything is black to convey a moody feeling.
  • Open Concept: A layout with no walls to separate your kitchen from the rest of your home.
  • L Shaped: A layout where cabinets and appliances form an “L” shape around the island.
  • Modern Style: A more sleek and minimal style.

When custom building, the sky’s the limit to the layout and style of your kitchen. Stock kitchens just don’t offer this level of creative freedom.

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.
