It’s called a dream home for a reason. And when you’re designing your dream home, you deserve to consider adding some of the luxuries that transform a house into the home you’ve always dreamed of owning. We’ve gathered some of the best ideas from previous projects (and our own dreams) to help inspire your design.

The Dream Kitchen

There are a number of ways you can make your kitchen into a dream kitchen. Some of the most popular ways to do this are by upgrading to luxury countertops and by creating an outdoor escape just off the kitchen. Other ideas to inspire your kitchen:

  • A second dishwasher
  • Walk-in pantry area
  • A second oven or commercial range
  • Water filtration system

Dream Bathroom

One of the most popular home design trends this year is an upscale master bathroom. From a separate soaker tub to rainfall shower head, luxury is the key. Consider these ideas:

  • Radiant heating in the floor of the bathroom
  • Towel warmer
  • Dimmable lights
  • Steam room/sauna
  • Built-in TV in shower or bathroom mirror

Dream Bedroom

One of the other very popular trends lately is a master bedroom that is designed to be more than just a sleeping area. Larger rooms with private outdoor space have become essential for the luxury master bedroom, but here is more inspiration:

  • Light switch next to the bed
  • Charging station in closet for electronics
  • Full walk-in closet with plenty of light and plenty of room for shoes and accessories
  • Additional space in the master suite for an office, breakfast/coffee nook, or reading room


Building an energy efficient home is easier than ever, especially if you are building new and can incorporate these ideas into your design:

  • Hot water recirculation/tankless water heater
  • Rain barrels/gray water systems
  • Solar panels/UV glass
  • Low flow toilets
  • Windows on opposite sides for better breezes

Don’t Forget Convenience

No matter what size or style of house you’re building, these conveniences make it all so much better:

  • More electrical outlets, in more places, than you would ever think you would need
  • HVAC/central vac system
  • Speakers wired through the house
  • Gas line ran outside for the grill (no more propane tanks)
  • Heavy duty electric outlets outside
  • Electronics charging station
  • Extra storage in every room

What would you add to this list?
