5 Irresistible New Custom Home Features for Melbourne

Beginning your custom home build will be an experience filled with a significant amount of decisions and choices. With endless custom home features that can be added to make the perfect dream home, it may seem all too much to choose.

In a city like Melbourne, where the temperamental climate can leave you warm one day and freezing the next; attention must be paid to your custom home features. As expert custom home builders in Melbourne, we have created a list of popular, irresistible custom home features that will leave you feeling comfortable and completely luxurious all year round.

Underfloor Heating

One of the best kinds of investments to make when choosing your custom home features is to opt for underfloor heating. Although this may not be at the top of your list initially, installing underfloor heating may just be the thing that sets your home apart from the rest.

Although some may see underfloor heating as an unnecessary luxury, living in Australia means that temperatures are unpredictable. Nothing quite beats the feeling of stepping onto warm floor tiles first thing on a cold winter morning, so it is definitely a feature that should be considered. Another bonus – underfloor heating is not overly expensive to run and can decrease your need for central heating during the colder months.


Latest Advancements in Technology

Through the developments in technology over the recent years, we have changed and added new ways to complete things around the house. Adding technology to your home can create a more functional and smarter place for you to live in.

Whether it’s adding remote controlled lights, a smart TV or even lining your toaster up to your iPad; the possibilities are endless! As well as making it a much more entertaining place to live, this can help to streamline the properties of your home, allowing you the potential to access appliances remotely can ensure reduced electricity and gas bills. Although not for everyone, adding technology into your home can be an irresistible addition.

Luxurious Kitchens

Whether it is your first home or tenth, everyone can agree that the kitchen is the heart of the home. It is the place where families interact and memories are made, preparing dinner, creating the perfect Christmas lunch with your family and friends and refining your hosting abilities with dinner parties with friends.

These days, high quality and large kitchens are at the top of every buyer’s list. Adding state of the art appliances, large bench tops and increased lighting can turn anyone into a professional chef. It allows smooth transitions from meals to socialising and ensures easy functionality to all who use it.


Floor to Ceiling Windows

Floor to ceiling windows is the perfect way to turn a drab wall into an ever-changing landscape. Whether it’s the middle of winter, watching the rainfall while sitting cosily by the TV, to watching the flowers bloom in spring; nothing quite beats the feeling of watching the world around us.

Not only this but installing large windows can also help to decrease your electricity bills in the summer – who needs the lights on when you have natural sunlight. Measurements can be discussed and customised with your custom home builder, as the flood of sunshine is a perfect addition to any home.

Blind Coverage

While floor to ceiling windows make such an incredible statement in your home, there is nothing worse than being prematurely woken by unwelcome sunlight. Window furnishings are the perfect way to discreetly hide away the rest of the world to get some much-needed rest and relaxation.

The incredible new designs allow you to customise your lighting around your house, from fully lit to pitch black at the touch of a button. Blinds can also help insulate your home; making for a beneficial and also cost effective investment. This kind of attention to detail will help to elevate your custom home, making it the kind of place you love spending time.
