4 Features to Consider for a Functional Home

Are you building a new house in Livonia and looking to have a functional space for your family? If so, the new home design contractors at DJL Builders Inc. can provide you with a fully-functional home that fits your family’s needs and lifestyle. Below are five functional features that homeowners often request for their custom-built homes.  

4 Features to Consider for a Functional Home

1. Large Mudroom

If there’s one thing we hear often, it’s that families want a large, usable mudroom. Having a place where the kids can store all of their gear, from backpacks and jackets to winter gear and sports equipment, means less clutter in the main living area. Even if you are empty-nesters, wouldn’t it be nice to have a place for shoes, coats, pet supplies, packages to mail, and more?

2. Kitchen Nook

While some homeowners enjoy having a dining space separate from their kitchen, others are opting for a home office or dedicated guest suite instead. If that’s you, then a kitchen nook may be the eating space solution you need. We can design one that flows seamlessly with your kitchen, so you can still sit and eat as a family when time allows.

3. Built-in Shelving

Ample storage is just as important as functionality for your Livonia home. A tried-and-true feature that you often see in older homes is built-in shelving. Our new home construction team can design built-in shelving anywhere in your home. Think of in-wall shelves in the bathrooms, shelving for entertainment equipment in the family room, and built-in shelving in any of the bedrooms. 

4. Second Floor Laundry

Installing second-floor laundry rooms has become quite a popular option for new or remodeled homes. Gone are the days of going up and down the basement stairs to do loads of laundry. Having a dedicated laundry room on the second floor is convenient and can save time and your aching back, too.
