The good news is that at Compass Homes, we pride ourselves on guiding homeowners through these decisions and have been doing so for more than 20 years.

To ensure that your brand-new custom home makes your life just a little bit easier and is a reflection of your day-to-day life, it’s important to know what you should splurge on and what you should not. At Compass Homes, our process focuses on the areas that you will live in and enjoy the most and provide “more thought per square foot.” So, let’s take a look at some top Indulgences when building a custom home …

Know your home is built in the right community for you.

It really is about location, location, location. In fact, oftentimes, where we build is more important than what we build. Choosing the right location for your home can help to maximize appraisal values and safeguards equity in your home. 

If you already own your lot, our team can evaluate the homesite to build the perfect home to fit both your lot and your family. Don’t have a lot?  No worries, we have searched for the best lots—in the best neighborhoods—in Central Ohio, and we can help you find your perfect fit.

Focus on the heart of your home.

Your home’s kitchen design is about so much more than being a place to prepare meals. In many homes, the kitchen is the very heart of the house, where families gather for meals, friends celebrate life’s everyday moments, and kids carve out a space for after-school snacks & homework. So be sure to focus on the details because it really is the little things that make a huge difference in creating the kitchen – and home – of your dreams.

Maximize space and comfort.

Your new home should include spaces that are creatively efficient and open new possibilities for the way you want to live. Morning Rooms that encourage large family gatherings, Flex Rooms that are able to change as your family grows, and plenty of storage to help you to stay organized. Every square foot serves the purpose of helping your family to live better.

Create a personal sanctuary.

Life can be chaotic, so it’s important that the Owners’ Suite feels like an escape, where you can leave the pace of the day behind and get a peaceful night’s sleep. It should feel calm, simple, and spacious, with distractions kept to a minimum. Splurge on the lighting, architecture, flooring, and decor of your bedroom and consider it an investment in yourself.

We don’t build houses, we build homes—the kind with warmth, grace, charm, and character, and with the highest quality craftsmanship. And we are here to make designing and building your dream home thoughtful, simple, painless, and most importantly, fun, and stress-free (all while including your top indulgences when building a custom home 😍).
