Let Your Light Shine

Set the tone or mood of your choice in each room of your home by getting creative with lighting. Play around with recessed lighting, stylish hanging fixtures, dimmer switches, and even different light bulb shades. Don’t underestimate the power of natural light, and consider installing windows of varying shapes and sizes, depending on the room. Consider skylights in hallways or bathrooms.

Heart(h) of the Home

A fireplace is so much more than just a place for a fire. It’s so much more than the physical warmth it can generate.

A fireplace creates a feeling that defies description. It’s the feeling of luxury, comfort, and safety. It’s the feeling of being where you belong, with the people who mean most to you in the world. It’s the feeling of truly being home!

With this in mind, your custom home definitely needs one of these. Furthermore, you do not want to cut corners or skimp on the design. From the style of fireplace to the details of the mantel to the materials used to accent the surrounding wall, every aspect of your fireplace can reflect who you are and what’s important to you.

Bathe in Luxury

Bathrooms serve a very mundane, practical purpose, but by no means do they have to be boring! Imagine having all the luxury of a spa, in the privacy of your own home. Make your bathroom as spacious as you’d like; there are no rules that say it must be small and cramped.

How you fill that space is completely up to you. There are so many styles of whirlpool bathtubs and shower fixtures to choose from on the market today that you can let your imagination run wild.

Be True to Your Roots

Incorporating your own personal history into the design of your home is a wonderful way to let your personality shine through. Was there a particular architectural detail you loved about your childhood home, such as a great room, a window seat, or a breakfast nook? Have you held on to antique furniture that’s been passed down through generations? You can work it all into your new home’s design and decor, telling your own special story in every detail.

Now that you’ve got a few ideas, check out this quick slideshow video to see how Rotelle Studio(e) can help you execute them!
