6 Custom Home Design Ideas for Autumn

It’s that time of year when we celebrate the end of summer and look ahead as the leaves begin to turn and long summer nights give way to early morning frost.

At Wayne Homes, we believe that one of the best things about building a custom home is creating a space that your family will love during every season of the year. From outdoor rooms in summer to the perfect kitchens for holiday entertaining, when you build a custom home with Wayne Homes almost anything is possible.

Here are 6 ways to design a home that’s perfect for chilly autumn days:

Casual Kitchens

Kitchen design ideas for your custom home Whether it’s a hearty stew in the slow cooker or homemade chocolate chip cookies baking in the oven, no room brings a family together like a kitchen. Design a kitchen with plenty of seating for casual meals, homework, or a late night cup of cocoa (with marshmallows, of course).

Craft Room

Craft room ideas for your custom designed home

One of the best things about fall is that’s it’s a great time to get creative. Create holiday decorations, begin making gifts, create a scrapbook of your family’s summer memories, or sew some new curtains. Design a custom home with an expanded laundry room or dedicated craft room to keep tools and materials well-organized and out of sight.

Home Theater

Media room design ideas for your custom built home

Cold and rainy days are the perfect time to watch old movies, host a Netflix marathon of your favorite tv show, or cheer on your favorite team during the big Sunday game.  Build a custom home with a finished basement for a theater, music room, home gym, or any room where louder is better.

Cozy Corners

fireplace design ideas for building your custom home

When you design your custom home, create cozy corners where you can light a fire, pull up an overstuffed chair and soft blanket, and open up a good book on a rainy autumn afternoon. At Wayne Homes, you can design any style of fireplace that you want to create a cozy corner that’s all yours.

Bonus Room

Finished basement ideas for your custom home

When the weather gets too chilly for an afternoon barbeque by the pool, bring the fun indoors with a custom home floor plan that includes a flexible bonus room with built-in bar. A bonus room can be a finished basement, an upstairs loft area, or a traditional entertaining area that’s expanded to accommodate all of your family and friends.

Warm Up

Master Bath design ideas for your new custom home

One of the best ways to enjoy the chillier weather is to create a deluxe Master Suite with a jet tub or expanded shower for warming up when temperatures begin to drop. At Wayne Homes, we can help you design a Master Suite that is the perfect end to a day of raking leaves or picking pumpkins.
