When one starts to build a custom home, it can be easy to focus on the big things, such as the layout of the home or the type of floors or counter materials used in the home. However, if you want to have a really nice custom home, comfort is often hidden in the details. Don't overlook the small details that make a home more comfortable as you work on designing and building your custom home.

#1 Go for Deep Drawers in Your Kitchen

In the kitchen, it is easy to get caught up in the appliances, countertop materials, and flooring. However, you should spend as much attention to the configuration of the drawers.

When it comes to the drawers, go for drawers that are taller and that will allow you to easily store a variety of items in them. Also go for deep kitchen drawers that go all the way to the back of the cabinet. You may as well make use of all that space, and installing deep drawers can greatly increase the storage space of your kitchen.

If you have corner spaces, add in corner drawers that allow you to take full advantage of the often-neglected corner space in kitchens.

#2 Add Functional Cabinets in Your Kitchen

Really start thinking about how you want your cabinets configured. Since you are building your home, you can customize the cabinets. For example, you could add a drawer to your cabinets to make it easier to pull out and store pots and pans. You can make a special vertical cabinet with slots for storing your cookie sheets. Talk to your builder and find other ways to make your kitchen more functional.

#3 Organize Your Closet Space

An open closet space often doesn't give you the space to work that you think it will. Instead of starting with a large open closet, think about how you want to use the space and have your custom home builder create custom shelving for your clothing and custom shoe compartments. Building a closet space with storage that meets your specific needs will make your closet space a more functional and useful space from the start.

#4 Go Overboard With the Outlets

It is much easier to put outlets into a home during the building process, so go overboard with the outlets. Electronic devices have become more prevalent, and you will not regret adding extra outlets to your space. Adding more outlets to your rooms will also give you more options for how you organize the layout of the space.

Remember to add outlets to rooms you may not think about needing electricity, such as bathrooms, outdoor living area, and your kitchen.

Once you have the layout of your custom home planned, focus on the details that will make your new home a more comfortable place to hang out.
