If you are building or remodeling your dream home, then the possibilities are endless. When you custom build, what your home becomes and where it is located are really up to you. So, as long as you are freeing yourself from all constraints, we thought we would share some ideas with you. By the way, these are not impossible new concepts. They have been accomplished many times in many wonderful custom homes. SeBern Custom Homes, in St. Charles, Illinois, can accomplish any or all of these for you:
Heated indoor pool: Sure, swimming pools are fantastic in the summer. But if you live in the Chicago area, you know that your time outside is limited by the weather. So, build one inside and enjoy it any day, at any time. Also, an indoor pool is much more private than an outdoor pool. Doing laps every day is one of the best exercises in the world. Live longer, healthier, and more relaxed with a heated indoor pool.
Hot tub: Do you think this is for Colorado only? You and your friends can hop into a heated outdoor hot tub in the coldest weather and laugh at the ice and snow.
A wall of windows: The right windows, with a high energy efficiency rating, can brighten rooms with warm, natural light all year round, and still insulate your home, keeping in cool air in the summer and warm air in the winter. Long draperies can ensure privacy; high-tech blinds can be programmed to open at sunrise and close at sunset.
Bedroom coffee bar: How about waking up to a steaming hot cup of Joe each morning? It’s fun, elegant and simple to do.
The modern bathroom: Here are a few bathroom ideas you may not have considered: radiant heated floors for when you step out of the shower, a shower with colored lighting, televisions, music, different shower heads coming from different directions, a whirlpool, a seat in the shower and a shelf for soap, shampoo, towels, etc., walk-in showers for two or more at a time, computer screens, steam showers, steam rooms, saunas, etc.
Multi-media rooms and home theaters: With Netflix and Amazon creating their own award-winning programming, staying at home sounds better and better. Do you desire a theater atmosphere? Put in a big screen TV (we mean REALLY big…100” or more!) and a professional popcorn maker. Include a shelf with candy and a soda pop dispenser…plus a bar with pints of cold, foaming Guinness, fine wine, and/or, perhaps, fine brandy. If you enjoy wine, include a wine cellar, cooled to the exact temperature required for perfection. Perhaps include a cigar room. How about leather reclining seats, pillows and blankets for dozing off, surround sound…you name it! And talk about Super Bowl parties!
Dog areas: Don’t forget man’s best friend! Have a basement entrance from your fenced back yard and dog run, directly to a dog showering and grooming area.
Exercise rooms: Don’t let your crazy-busy schedule stop you from staying fit. Exercise rooms with music and TV’s are commonplace in custom homes. Do rain, mud, snow, ice, sweltering days or below-zero evenings stop you from exercising? Treadmills, stationary cycles, weightlifting equipment, rowers, and other machines are simple solutions. And we aren’t even mentioning basketball courts, golf practice driving screens, etc. Stay healthy, stay happy, and love your custom home.
Entertaining: This is what Great Rooms and big screen TVs were made for! Not to mention spectacular kitchens – the catering companies love these!
Landscaping: Love spectacular gardens, ponds, patios, walking paths or just being outdoors? Then you will love what professional landscapers can create around your beautiful new home.
Time off: SeBern can also create quiet reading nooks and areas with soft, restful lighting.
