Home Design with the Holidays in mind
Building a new custom home can be an exciting, and at times, overwhelming endeavor. There are endless items to consider. If you love the holidays and entertaining, it is important to determine what must-have elements you need for your holiday décor, entertaining and more.
Consider a design that complements your favorite holiday decorations and treasures. Ample wall space, well-placed outlets, and built-in shelving can make all forms of decorating easier.
A neutral color palette in your main interior spaces might be a better accent for your holiday decorations to stand out and pop.
An open floor plan is functional for entertaining or hosting holiday gatherings. An open-concept layout offers ample space for guests to mingle and move around freely.
Love to cook and bake? Design a spacious and well-equipped kitchen with ample counter space, storage, and multiple well-spaced outlets to make holiday meal preparation a breeze.
Outdoor Entertaining Spaces
Design an outdoor space that extends your interior to the outside. A concrete patio, or concrete deck is ideal for holiday gatherings. A fireplace and or fire pit is a wonderful way to provide warmth and ambiance during the cooler months as well.
A fireplace provides a cozy centerpiece of the home. Especially, surrounding the holidays.
Guest Rooms and Accommodations
If you plan to host guests overnight, design comfortable guest rooms appointed with luxurious touches and amenities. Bathrobes, candles, extra blankets, pillows, and holiday-themed décor is a wonderful touch to make any house guest feel welcome.
Smart Home Technology
Integrate smart home technology to control lighting, heating, audio and entertainment systems. This can enhance the ambiance during holiday celebrations.
Storage for Holiday Decorations
Include ample storage space to house your holiday decorations throughout the year. Shelving, closets, and storage systems are important elements to store your holiday trees, wreaths, lighting, tubs and festive décor.
Consider energy-efficient features like LED lighting, smart thermostats, and well-insulated windows to reduce energy costs during the winter months.
Custom Holiday Lighting
Plan for custom lighting options, such as pendant lights or chandeliers that can be adjusted to create the perfect holiday ambiance. Make sure to have plenty of exterior and interior outlets surrounding your home.
Incorporate lighten bookshelves, built-in furniture, and cubbies to showcase artwork, photos, or family heirlooms.
Remember to work closely with your builder to incorporate these features seamlessly into your home’s design. For more information about building your new home for the holidays contact us today at 316-990-0000.
