Build Your Home with Personality
Our homes should be an expression or reflection of our personality. How you decorate and design you home often tell visitors a bit about who you are and what you enjoy. It also makes it a comfortable place for you to nest.
I once bought a very poorly taken care of and damaged home because it had built -in corner cabinets with glass doors, crown molding, rich looking woodwork, and an adorable telephone niche. The house had great bones and I loved the cape cod lannon stone exterior. The previous owners destroyed much of the house and allowed the landscaping to become entirely overgrown, but I saw beyond all of that because of the telephone niche and built-ins.
When designing and building your new home, I encourage you to add something that reflects you. If you love to bake , maybe you want to add a baking station or if music is your passion, build a music room. For those bibliophiles, put bookcases under the stairs or built-in shelving to display your collectibles and books. I recently saw a finished lower level that reflected the owners love of aviation. They incorporated airplane propellers into the ceiling fan and made the bar out of an airplane wing. The rest of the decor tastefully used different maps and airplane parts making the room a reflection of the owners’ passions.
While we often want our homes to be a showcase for others to admire, it is more important to make it yours. The advantage of working with a custom home designer such as Midwest Design Homes and Jon Huss Custom Homes is that your home will be unique to you. We don’t build cookie cutter homes nor do we develop whole neighborhoods, rather we prefer to enhance them with beautiful high quality custom designs that reflect you and make your home your castle.
