What does it mean to design SMART? It means a home that’s the perfect fit for you and your budget. Designing a dream home doesn’t have to mean expensive finishes and over-the-top options. Most often, it’s about editing. Eliminating square footage and features you don’t want or won’t use and making your space functional and beautiful everyday.

Here are some simple home ideas that are very popular with our Adair Homes customers (and why we think you will love them too).

A Laundry Room Sink

Sure, you will probably never show it off at a dinner party, but a laundry room sink is one insanely simple way to add tons of functionality to your home without breaking the bank. Clean off muddy boots (before they track mud through your house), give Fido a bath without making a mess in the bathroom, hand wash delicates instead of spending a fortune in dry cleaning, or even expand your laundry room into a craft room.

Built-In Media Center

Everyone has a different idea of the perfect media center. He wants a giant tv for the big game. She wants the tv out of sight (along with the cords, the consoles, the remote, and other clutter that she is constantly organizing). Fortunately everyone can get what he or she wants with a media built-in. At Adair Homes, you can add an optional built in into any room, and then design it based on your specific needs. Add a media center, storage space, bookshelves, even a display area for your prized trophy collection.

Kitchen Island Storage

They say you can never be too rich or too thin, but we say you can never have too much kitchen storage space. From specialty appliances (like a pasta machine or spiralizer) to holiday linens and cookbooks that have been passed from generation to generation, every host or hostess needs a fully stocked kitchen to make a house feel like home. Storage in the kitchen island puts everything within easy reach.

Flex Spaces

Do you remember what you were doing 20 years ago, back when the world wide web was still the “world wide what?” Just imagine how different the next 20 years will be. That’s why flex rooms are such an insanely useful part of designing a custom home. A flex room is open space such as a loft, a bonus room, or even a privacy suite with an en suite bath that you can repurpose over the years as your priorities change. A playroom today can be a teen den tomorrow. A first floor master makes a convenient in-law suite for now and the perfect guest suite later.
