Custom Creates Value in Homebuilding

The market for luxury homes in the US is booming right now. In some areas, there are more buyers than there are homes for sale. If you plan on capitalizing on this current luxury home trend now or you are thinking about your future, one thing is for certain, custom will add value.

Luxury Home Upgrades to Consider 

These are some of the most popular luxury home upgrades right now.

Custom Kitchen

A high-end quality kitchen is a must-have whether you have the cooking skills that would give Top Chef a run for its money, or you can barely boil water. An updated, modern, custom kitchen will really increase your home’s value. Add sought-after appliances like a wine fridge and professional quality stove, but don’t forget the little touches like an instant boiling water tap.

Wood floors, custom lighting fixtures, and unique, stylish cabinet hardware are nice touches that have a big impact. The kitchen backsplash is another key area to upgrade. As the focal point of most kitchens, you want it to really make a statement to add to the overall high-end feel of your home.

Heated Flooring

There are so many advantages to having a heated floor. It is a great way to keep your home warm in the cooler months and is very nice to walk on. What makes it really nice is that it evenly distributes heat, so you don’t need radiators, leaving your walls free for more flexibility in your furniture arrangement.

Pipework is installed in the floor which can be wood, stone, tile, or carpet. This luxury heating system radiates the heat from the floor up so drafts, and cold spots are mostly eliminated. It’s also a very popular selling point.

Statement Landscaping

Statement landscaping is like the icing on the luxury home cake. It ups your curb appeal and creates a pleasant space for you to enjoy the outdoor areas of your home. A professional landscaper can makeover your entire yard to your specifications or work with you to create something breathtaking and comfortable.

Your landscaping project may be as simple as putting in a couple of flower beds and planting some trees, or it could be more high-end with luxury touches like constructing stone benches and a fire pit, adding custom lighting, carving winding paths through your property, or creating a beautiful fountain.


The two areas that home buyers focus on the most in a home they are touring are the kitchen and the bathroom. The master bath is at the top of the list but the other bathrooms in the home are very important too. A spa-quality bathroom is a hot item for luxury home buyers right now and there are so many little touches you can add to really make it pop. Simple upgrades like a waterfall showerhead or a power shower head will not only give you a great shower experience, but it will also add value to your home.

Another luxurious addition you may want to consider is a steam room. It is relaxing and is beneficial to your health, but it also adds a glamorous touch to your bathroom.


Custom millwork can give your home a more elegant feel while reflecting your own style. It is a luxurious touch that can be seen in your custom kitchen cabinets, bathroom cabinets, the mantel over your fireplace, crown moldings, and more. These subtle touches add an element of sophistication and luxury to your home. Buyers will appreciate the unique quality that sets your home apart from the rest.
