Don’t settle for standard building materials or cookie-cutter designs. The materials you choose for your custom home at Parker Built Homes should fit your style and help you make a lasting impression by setting your home apart from other, more traditional homes. Building a new, custom home may be the biggest investment you ever make; therefore, it’s important to get the dream home you want that will last for generations to come.
Consider Quality in Your Custom Home Material
The use of top quality materials really do make the difference. Brass accessories and materials made of rare or high-quality woods and grained aluminum not only are aesthetically pleasing and add an air of timelessness to your home, but are long-lasting, high-quality products.
When planning your custom home, select materials:
- That will enhance the appearance of your home
- That will provide maximum energy efficiency
- With high insulating R-Values
The cabinetry you choose for your kitchen gets a lot of attention, so storage isn’t the only factor to consider. Kitchen cabinets help create atmosphere and style. If you are looking for kitchen cabinets with a rich, dark finish, cherry wood offers both beauty and durability. To create a more exotic appeal, mahogany or bamboo can be stained or lacquered. However, if cabinets with a sleek finish aren’t to your taste, kitchen cupboards with a textured look may offer a more natural appeal.
Other features to look for in kitchen cabinets:
- Pie-corner base cabinet
- Pull-out pantries and spice organizers
- Lazy-Susan spin shelf
- Recessed bottoms
- Decorative cupboard hardware
Kitchen Counter Tops
Kitchen counter tops are available in materials to fit most any lifestyle. You can buy granite in different colors, patterns, and thicknesses. Quartz surfaces – also offered in a range of colors – are aesthetically appealing as well as stain- and scratch-resistant. If you are looking for a counter top that exudes an historic appeal, soapstone’s pewter tone may fit your home’s style.
With the broad variety of garage doors available in different designs and sizes, you can choose a style that complements the architecture of your home. No need to worry about coordinating paint colors. Garage doors can be custom painted to match the color of your home’s siding, trim, window shutters, or stone or brick exterior.
Add to your home’s curb appeal with a wood garage door that you stain or paint. But if you want the look of a real wood garage door without the maintenance it requires, go with a door that combines the durability of steel construction with a natural-looking, wood-grain fiberglass surface. Windows are another asset to a garage door that not only let in natural light, but also make an impact on the door’s overall appearance.
