Asking us to choose our favorite home we ever built would be like asking us to pick our favorite child, it’s just not possible to pick! But, if you were to ask us about some of our favorite unique features we’ve built in custom homes on LBI, we could give you one or two from every home. So, in some of our recent projects we’re able to narrow it down a bit and give you some of our favorites. If you are thinking of building a custom home on LBI, you may want to consider adding some (or all) of these great features.
You’ve probably seen this picture before from us, but we have to include it, as it really is the most unique kitchen we’ve built to date. The open shelving in the kitchen is a very forward thinking design element which is currently trending. The idea is to have the flexibility to organize and display your kitchen wares as part of the décor of the room. If we are being completely honest, the open shelving is not the only thing we love about this unique kitchen design. From the paneling on the center island, to the oversized farmhouse sink, and the wood beam detailing in the ceiling, the whole room is one of our favorites!
Moving on to our favorite specialty sinks, the powder room is definitely a place to showcase your creativity that all of your guests will have the opportunity to see. We’ve done many custom sinks in the past for many powder rooms, but this recent custom waterfall sink and faucet are truly beautiful. And, we don’t want to forget to mention that beautiful wood countertop!
Sometimes the little details are really what makes a design stand out. In our opinion, this unique barn-door style hardware on this glass shower enclosure is one of those details. The brushed chrome finish and heavy industrial look create an interest and focal point in the bathroom that makes us want to use these more!
We recently posted a blog about Gunite pools that explains the what, how, and why. As we were posting up that blog, we were actually building a couple of Gunite pools for different projects we are building on LBI. Here is one of those pools, completed and we love it! The unique, custom shape, the stacked stone waterfall, and the finished edges and pavers all come together to make this one of our favorite, unique features we’ve built in a custom home.
Whether it’s the focal point of the home, or a small detail that our homeowner chooses for a specific room or feature, there is no denying that these unique features can truly define your custom home on LBI. If you are looking to build a new home and have land, or need property to build on, we can help you achieve the look, style, features, and designs that will be perfect for your family. Contact us today to get started and enjoy your new custom home on LBI next summer!
