While the holiday spirit graces every home at this time of the year, the experience of celebrating the holidays is definitely enriched in a custom-built home. The freedom of making your own choices to shape your abode according to what your family’s personal preferences are, is an unparalleled advantage.
Drawing on decades of experience, our team of custom home builders in Volusia County, Florida, have put together a list of top home design features that can enhance the joy of the festive season.
The Openness of Merrymaking Season
The holidays are all about opening your heart to love, family, giving, and making memories. An open-floor plan in your custom-built house allows you to do just that. Cozy evenings are spent with family in the living area, which you are still part of as you prepare dinner. Guests can wander over to the dining table to pick a freshly baked cookie, to the kitchen to help themselves to some mulled wine, then back to the living room and not miss a beat in the conversation. Aromas from the oven or fragrances from scented candles can waft openly in every zone.
An open floor plan also allows you to be efficient in your holiday decor. The festive Christmas tree, which the whole family has decorated with so much passion, is a heart-warming sight from every corner. A show-stopping dinner table centerpiece is not just confined to the dining area but instead adds a festive vibe to the entire floor. A sprinkle of glitter from some well-chosen lights and natural elements here and there are all you need to achieve the look.
The Holiday Glow
In a custom-built home, you have the advantage of implementing a diversity of lighting options. From recessed lights to brighten the area for parties, to beautiful hanging lights that can be dimmed to set the mood, you can be confident of illuminating your home according to whatever the situation calls for.
Outdoor lighting too can dazzle onlookers, not just during the holiday season but throughout the year. Our team of lighting experts at Kargar Homes can help you choose a permanent installation of landscape lighting or well-lit walkways that will make a glowing first impression all year round.
The Charm of Outdoors
Even if the outdoor area in a custom home is not designed to host a large party but is more of a cozy retreat for close family, it goes a long way in adding value to your home. In a subtropical state like Florida, where we are blessed to have temperate weather most of the year, an outdoor kitchen allows countless opportunities to bond with family and friends during the holidays. Just opting for an intimate courtyard setup with custom patterned flooring gives you the opportunity to kick back and relax with a couple of friends and some hot cocoa to get into the Christmassy mood.
At Kargar Homes, we have helped countless families step into their ideal home. We focus on building individual works of art personalized for our clients so that they can build their memories for decades to come.
