Top 5 Things To Splurge On When Building A Custom Home

Building a custom home is one of the biggest investments most people make in their lifetime.  Unless you have an unlimited budget, you will likely have a few choices to make throughout the process.  At Mueller Homes, we have been helping homeowners navigate these choices for over 30 years.

There will be areas in your home where you’ll want to splurge a little.  These are the areas that you will live in and enjoy the most.  When you begin the design process, we’ve compiled a list of the areas that our clients get the most impact and long-term benefit:

  1. Location – Location is the most important aspect for resale and return on investment. It’s also the one element where you should not compromise. Strategically located property will have stronger growth in value. Get a great location, build a beautiful home you love, and you’ve got a win/win!
  2. Design Services – You can add enormous value to your home by investing in the services of a competent interior designer. Your dream home may not feel so dreamy when you bring in that 15-year-old sofa or chipped up bedroom suite.  Make it easy on yourself and include a design budget in your custom home plan.  You’ll enjoy the colors, furniture, and finishes selected when you work with a designer to create practical, functional, or lavish pieces that complement your lifestyle dream home.
  3. Kitchen – No one ever complains about a kitchen being too big, having too much counter space, or too many cabinets. It is the heart of the home every day and on special occasions. Be sure you invest wisely in your kitchen planning for your needs today and down the road.
  4. Family Room – Oversize, never undersize, your family room. Make this room a little larger than you think you need and you’ll be glad you did!
  5. Room Size – Once your home is built, it’s often costly and a nuisance to expand a room once you realize it’s too small. If you’re on a limited budget, It’s better to hold off on some of the finishes or upgrades rather than cut down the size of the rooms.  You can add or change finishes later.  Make sure the rooms meet your needs now and later.

Invest your money in the areas of your new custom home that will bring you the most enjoyable experience and add long term value!  Contact Mueller Homes today for more ways to enhance your custom home building experience.  Mueller Homes – Handcrafting Homes for your Lifestyle!
