What are the top 3 rooms clients customize when building?

Since KTS Homes is a custom home builder, all of our clients customize their homes, absolutely nothing is cookie cutter. What are the top three rooms that we see clients spend more that the average amount clients spend there budget on?

Kitchens and master bathrooms are at the top the list for the largest dollar amount spent when customizing. There’s no one area in these spaces that we can point to that would a top item to customize a home. By room, kitchens are the most expensive to customize in the home. Some things to consider, kitchens are very ‘finish’ and ‘material’ intensive (What does this amount to: Countertops, backsplash, cabinetry, appliances and various types of lighting, plumbing to consider and labor costs)

The next largest dollar amount is the master bathroom, like the aforementioned kitchen, bathrooms are very finish and material intensive as well (This amounts to: Labor, plumbing, electrical, intricate tile and or stone as well as custom lighting, large cabinetry and expansive countertops). Guest bathrooms in most cases are smaller and therefore don’t require as much finish, material and plumbing. In the living areas, clients request high quality built-ins, recessed ceilings/lighting, custom lighting/fans, pocketing and or sliding doors that lead out to the outdoor spaces.

As its popularity grows, the concept of outdoor living is quickly evolving to take on new meaning. Rather than a simple dining set on a patio or door walls that open completely for a smooth transition from the indoors out.

Since we live in a warm climate in Southwest Florida, we have the gorgeous weather on our side! Since the transition from indoor to outdoors space occurs, clients are looking for a more seamless approach, such as pocketing sliding glass doors or folding doors with a view to take advantage of. Most clients are requesting outdoor kitchens for entertaining guests and the wow factor. These outdoor kitchens can become elaborate quickly, depending on the clients budget and needs. For example, an elaborate  outdoor kitchen can consist of a high end grill with vegetable sink, exotic countertops, wine cooler, a bar with seating, a separate space for a fire pit, fountain(s), pond, and so much more!

Scott Kish II owner of KTS Homes says, “Customizing a home is a very personal thing that all clients view from very different vantage points. For example, the quality of finishes to the overall look and feel. All of our clients think differently, and therefore there is no one right way to build or remodel a home. It’s personal to every client in different ways, therefore customizing a home is absolutely essential if you don’t want your home to look like everyone else’s.”
