Custom Home Features That Will Make Your Property More Desirable

Posted by Lauren Spencer on Saturday, August 17th, 2013 at 9:01am.

If you are looking to renovate your Santa Cruz home before selling, what are some of the luxurious home features you can add that will really make the home special? These features will not only make your home more impressive, they will also improve your quality of life as you spend time in the home. Another advantage of having these special features in your home is that they will make the property more attractive to buyers when you eventually resell. 

Walk In Closet

A walk in closet is a dream-come-true for any fashionista, with enough space for clothing, accessories and dozens of pairs of shoes. This luxurious home feature can give you much more space to organize your belongings and make your home feel much more spacious. When you are selling the home again, a large walk in closet in the master bedroom is a very desirable feature which will make an impression on your potential buyers.

Sitting Area Within The Master Bedroom

If the master bedroom within your home is large enough, you can incorporate a sitting area with a lounge or a sectional sofa. This gives you a space to sit and read and relax within the privacy of your own room. This living area might even include a television or a bookshelf filled with interesting books to enjoy.

Open Plan Kitchen

A large and spacious open plan kitchen is a very desirable design feature in a new home. The kitchen is where you will be spending a lot of time, so if it is spacious and well organized it will be much easier to use. This type of kitchen makes it easy to cook while socializing with guests at the same time, especially if it has an island with stools where they can sit. The kitchen can also be joined together with the dining room so that you can serve more formal meals around the table.

Covered Entrance

This can be a covered porch or a stoop which provides shelter as you walk into the front entrance of the home. Not only does this feature improve the curb appeal of the home, it also shelters you from the weather as you are entering the house. It also makes the front entrance of the property feel more private and luxurious and will protect it from the elements.
