7 Must Haves For Your Custom Home

7 Must Haves For Your Custom Home

When you build your own custom home, you can design it just the way you want it. While making decisions on your new home in Victoria BC can be an amazing part of the building process, it can also become overwhelming and easy to forget simple things! Below we have put together a list of 7 “must haves” that you should consider adding to your custom home design. 

Deep Kitchen Drawers 

Instead of going for traditional cabinets, try adding in deep kitchen drawers. These offer the same amount of storage with better accessibility!

Closet Organizers

If you are considering adding a spacious walk-in closet to your custom home, be sure to add in a closet organization system. These include shelving, drawers, shoe compartments, and hanging space to keep your wardrobe clean and organized.


In today’s digital world, there are many appliances and technologies that require an outlet. Adding outlets and USB ports to places such as your mantel, under cabinets, outdoor space, or bathroom can make your space convenient and adaptable to modern life.

Luxury Master Bathroom

The master bedroom should be a place to relax and unwind, so why not extend that to the master bathroom? Many custom home owners choose to add a jacuzzi tub, walk in shower, or sauna to help them create their very own oasis.

Wine Cellar

What wine connoisseur doesn’t dream of their own wine cellar? When you are building a custom home, you can make that happen! A home wine cellar is both a great selling feature and a fun addition for you and your guests to enjoy.

Outdoor Living Space

Blend the indoors with the outdoors with an outdoor living room or kitchenette – perfect for warm summer days. This adds large value to a home and increases the square footage of living space!

Mud Room

Say goodbye to tiny hall closets and hello to mud rooms! These are great versatile rooms to hold coats, shoes, umbrellas, pet items, sports equipment and even laundry!

These are a few of the most popular requests for custom homes, and it’s a great place to start when you begin your own planning process. Your Victoria BC custom home builders will work closely with you to make sure that every decision is as stress free and easy as possible.
