5 Features To Consider When Building A New Home

May 24, 2024

Congratulations! You’ve decided to embark on the exciting journey of building your dream home. Building a new home is an opportunity for you to create a home that includes everything you could want and need. A home that suits your lifestyle and infuses your tastes. You’ll choose everything from the homesite to the layout and the finishes. When it comes to building your home, you’re sure to have many features on your wish list, but here are five features to consider.

1. Mudroom

A mudroom, or sand room at our beach communities, is a great home feature perfect for keeping your home clean from the day-to-day clutter and messy weather conditions. It’s not only a great storage space but it also is a pit stop for everything you need before leaving and returning to your home. Stash leashes for the dog, backpacks for the kids, coats and umbrellas for rainy weather, and so much more. It’s the ultimate functional space.

2. Walk-In Pantry

Whether you’re a culinary enthusiast with tons of seasonings or a snackaholic needing to grab a quick protein bar, a walk-in pantry is an ideal home feature. The ample storage space offers room for frequently used food items and oversized appliances that aren’t used as frequently. A walk-in pantry also keeps things organized and clutter-free, while leaving extra space in your cabinets for glassware and tupperware.

3. Pet-Friendly Spaces

At McKee Builders, we understand wanting a designated space for your furry family members. From small built-in areas to whole rooms, a pet-friendly space is a great home feature that your pets will love. Consider feeding stations, sleeping nooks, and climbing perches to make your pets more comfortable.

4. Luxury Primary Bathroom

When building your new home, your primary bathroom should be relaxing, organized, and stylish. Afterall, it’s where you spend time getting ready for the day, whether it’s a beauty routine, getting cleaned, or simply freshening up. Touches like a spacious shower with rainfall showerheads, a steam shower, a double vanity, large mirrors, and ample lighting can make all the difference. McKee Builders home designs include shower seats for added space and functionality. Combine ambient lighting, a sound system, and other luxurious finishes to create the perfect environment for a relaxing spa day right at home.

5. Smart Home Technology

The convenience of controlling everything from your smart devices or through voice commands is unbeatable. Homes with built-in smart features and connectivity are convenient and efficient. From smart thermostats to doorbells to garages and more, smart home features allow you to easily control your home’s systems and enjoy energy savings and an elevated lifestyle.
