6 Features to Expect In Your Brand New Home

Posted on Feb 23, 2021 in Blog

One of the many perks in purchasing a new construction home is the number of contemporary features modern home builders incorporate into each and every model they build. If you’ve been dreaming about life in a brand-new Edmonton home, here are just a few of the many fabulous features to expect.

6 Features to Expect In Your Brand New Home

1. Roomy, Open-Concept Main Floors

Whether you love to entertain or stay connected with the family throughout the day, an open-concept floor plan is an absolute must-have. A combined living space that includes the kitchen, dining areas and great room (or living room), this space-maximizing layout is ideal for moving seamlessly from room to room. It also serves to highlight your beautifully finished kitchen (the heart of the home) and your oversized kitchen island.

2. Spacious Master Suites 

Imagine being able to escape to your own private getaway at the end of a long day. Yet another must-have among today’s home buyers, most builds on the Edmonton market come equipped with a generous master suite, complete with walk-in master closet and spa-like master bath. More often than not, the ensuite is its own retreat, often accompanied by a large soaker tub, separate shower and, in some cases, dual vanities.

3. Ample Storage Space 

Another benefit of buying into a new construction home? The endless amount of storage space (and we’re not just talking closets and cupboards). Brand-new homes typically feature expansive kitchen pantries (with walk-thru versions available for added convenience), oversized single or double (attached or detached) garages, built-in shelving and more. Depending on the model, you may even enjoy an enormous mudroom, ideal for keeping everyone organized on those busy weekday mornings.

4. Functional Family-Friendly Living  

With new home features such as upper floor laundry and roomy, oversized secondary bedrooms and bathrooms, you’ll have everything you need to enjoy a functional (family-friendly) lifestyle. Other features to look forward to may include convertible, upper floor bonus rooms (perfect for family movie nights, game nights, extra entertaining space and more) as well as additional flex rooms, ideal for a home office, study area, guest space or den.

5. Additional Features 

While the above features typically come standard to most new home builds in Edmonton, every new home will come with its own unique characteristics, specific to that model and floor plan. These features may include an eye-catching open-to-below feature, 9-foot ceilings, additional bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as the option to pay your mortgage off faster with a fully-finished legal basement suite.

6. Have It Your Way 

Keep in mind, when it comes to your new home’s features and finishes, nothing is set in stone. When working with an Edmonton custom home builder, especially, you have the unique opportunity to choose every fit and finish, from the model and floorplan, right down to the colour of the tile backsplash. Even better, if the right custom builder doesn’t have exactly what you’re looking for via their diverse design portfolio, they will create a tailor-made solution to your specifications.
