Being able to join in the design and floor plan of a new luxury home gives you a great opportunity to build the home of your dreams. When you work with architects and home builders you are able to let them know your vision for the home and clearly express what you need to make your new home match your unique lifestyle. At By Carrier we work very closely with each new homeowner to ensure their vision becomes a reality and if you are thinking about building a new luxury home in Connecticut consider some features and amenities that should be at the top of your wish list.
Energy Efficient Floor Plans – Maybe you don’t consider energy a luxury but you will when you see the utility bills. Heating and cooling costs won’t be going down anytime soon and wasting money on energy you are not using is like throwing cash out the window. You new luxury home will be much more comfortable and affordable with a energy efficient floor plan and Energy Smart appliances that not only cut down on energy costs but also reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants caused by the inefficient use of energy.
Space – Perhaps the most common gripe among people who look at existing homes is the lack of space. From the kitchen and bathrooms to master bedrooms and the entrance it’s hard to find homes that have the spaciousness you need to live life on your terms. Planning a new luxury home from scratch gives you the ability to work closely with the builders to ensure you get the space necessary for you and your family to live comfortably.
Custom Woodwork – After living in apartments and homes that you had no say in designing, the chance to build a new luxury home is your chance to add exquisite and unique custom woodworking. Many custom homes have the same features when it comes to first floor master suites and hardwood flooring but where you really make your mark is in the details. Handcrafted custom woodwork on the kitchen and bathroom cabinets will really make your interior stand out and differentiate your home from all the others.
Landscaping – When planning your new luxury home in Connecticut, don’t forget the landscape. Making decisions about interior finishes and space is important but so are the surroundings. Your luxury home won’t be very inviting if you neglect the grounds. Spend time with a professional landscape artist to go over ideas you have for the lawn, gardens, pools and patios so you create a beautiful and lush landscape that will compliment the design of your home.
