Check out these Design Features at our Parade of Homes Models
This year, Mike Rygh and Custom One Homes celebrates 30 years in business. Every home we build has its own unique features. But over the years, we’ve learned that there are four specific design elements that are important to every customer: storing, entertaining, de-stressing, and flexible living.
Today our focus is on “storing.”
This goes way beyond an extra cabinet in the kitchen, or an unfinished room with shelving in the basement. Homeowners want unique storage areas throughout their homes.
For example, take a look at these photos:
In the entry way from the garage, we’ve added a coat closet or storage closet, a countertop (that has an electrical plug-in – perfect for “overflow” from the neighboring kitchen while entertaining), a bench that is perfect for putting on your shoes, and stowing away baseball gloves or mittens. The hooks are perfect for jackets, backpacks, or even hanging your car keys.
Check out our “ultimate mud room.” This is a lower level room that has a stairway leading to it from the garage. Send your hockey enthusiasts straight to the mud room to unload their gear, or turn it into that “overflow pantry” since it has easy access from the garage.
Take a look at the “work-in pantry.” This will delight every cook in the house because it provides great storage space, but also has electrical outlets so you can plugin that crock pot or another coffee maker.
Check out our built-ins in this family room. Who wants stacks of DVDs sitting out in the open? Store them in these cabinets that are styled to match the decor of your home.
And yes – we even have lots of storage in the laundry room. It includes cupboards, shelves, and a hanging rack for those delicate items you need to keep out of the dryer.
One more example is shown in this master bath. Think of it as “his and hers storage.” Drawers, cupboards, and additional shelf-space for those items that you use frequently and want within “grabbing distance.” Note the large linen closet along the back wall where you can keep those extra towels and supplies.
These are just a few examples of how we consider storing in every home we design and build.
Take note of it as you visit us during the Parade of Homes.
