Features You Should Consider for Your New Home Construction

Features You Should Consider for Your New Home Construction

Are you considering purchasing a new home in Toronto? Whether you are working with a custom home builder on a new home construction or buying an existing newly built property, today’s new homes have more features and choices than ever.

The following are a few features you should consider incorporating into your new home construction:

1, Built-in shelving – we all know how storage and display space can get to be a premium in any home. Bookcases that don’t quite fit the wall or that are mismatched can look pretty terrible. Custom shelving on the other hand, looks great in any space and it can be a real selling feature
should you ever decide to move.

2,  A deeper basement – Many homes in Toronto – especially those that were built back in the 50s and 60s have shallow basements. If you are lucky enough to be able to stand completely upright in them, it can still feel like the ceiling is right on top of your head. Deeper basements will not
only give you more head space, but they will also be able to give you more uses and enjoyment out of your basement. You will appreciate higher basement ceilings if you want to use your basement for a family room, a home office or a basement apartment.

3,  Upstairs laundry room – Now, there is nothing wrong with having your laundry room in the basement, but wouldn’t it be better if you didn’t have to lug multiple loads of laundry up and down the stairs every week? Or even better, wouldn’t it be great if you could have a laundry room with a window, so you could enjoy some natural sunlight while doing mundane tasks like ironing and folding?

4, Heated floors – winters in Toronto can get downright cold! Heated floors might seem like a luxury but once you have them, you’ll wonder why you ever wanted to live without them! You don’t have to have them everywhere in the house, but they are especially nice in the bathroom. No more stepping out of the shower onto an ice-cold floor.

5, Smart devices – finally, no discussion about cool features to include in your new home construction would be complete without mentioning smart technology. The list of available smart devices for your Toronto home is extensive ranging from home security and keypads that can be controlled with your smart phone, to shades that open and close based on how much heat and light is coming through the windows, to sound systems that use algorithms to predict the kind of music that you like to listen to at any given time.
