Building a custom home is one of life’s most rewarding undertakings. Given the resources, you can personalize your home, crafting it to suit your every need and desire. While every project is different, Mitchell Homes’ customers are always excited to plan and build the home of their dreams.

Future custom homeowners don’t always know what they want, though. While all of our homes come with beautiful, durable, modern standard features, there’s no restriction on what we can craft. When customers contact us with uncertainty, we walk them through some of our most popular home upgrades for inspiration.

1. Custom Home Designs

Many of our projects begin when customers bring us the home of their dreams on a napkin, and end when we make those dreams a reality. We have received and fulfilled requests for anything from a small two-bedroom hunting cabin to a Colonial home in downtown Richmond. Mitchell Homes’ 32 unique floorplans cover a broad variety of needs and tastes, from the cozy 954-square-foot James to the expansive 3323-square-foot Berkeley.

Still, we won’t claim to satisfy every limit of the imagination with our pre-designed floor plans. We’re happy to build anything our customers desire, and we offer a whole host of custom upgrade options.

Custom options include anything that is non-standard. While Mitchell Homes offers thousands of upgrade options, there’s no boundary to what we’re willing to build. Our customers love finding unique custom upgrades on sites like Houzz and Pinterest and bringing them to us. If you can describe the project or show us what you want, we can make it happen!

2. Custom Cabinets for Kitchens and Bathrooms

It’s no wonder that many of our customers want to focus their home renovations on kitchens and bathrooms. Kitchens are truly the heart of the home, a space where families and friends congregate to share food, drinks, and memories.

Adding custom cabinets to your home carries a number of benefits. You can match your cabinet styles to your home’s design, create additional storage and organizational space, or add features such as glass-pane doors and internal lights to create beautiful showcase areas.

3. Flooring

What do people want? Hardwood flooring. Many customers have always dreamed of adding the comfort and class of hard wood to their homes. With a variety of options from solid wood to engineered wood floors, we’ve got a personalized solution to match any home’s design.

Hardwood isn’t your only flooring upgrade option, though. Hardwoods are perennially popular, but lately we’ve seen an influx of requests for laminate flooring and ceramic tile, especially in kitchens, bathrooms, mudrooms, and foyers. These classic and easy to maintain floors are perfect for families with children and pets.

4. Master Bath Customization

There’s no extent to the luxury that our customers desire in their master bathrooms. Bathrooms have a lot of small pieces that add up to an experience as indulgent as you’d like.

Mitchell Homes has upgrade options for every part of your bathroom. Our customers have requested all sorts of custom bath projects, including:

  • Changing from a tub-shower combo to a roll-in shower and walk-in bathtub. Custom bathrooms are our specialty, and that certainly includes handicap-accessible bath fixtures to cater to the unique needs of our elderly or disabled customers.
  • Upgrading a regular shower to a luxury shower spa and Jacuzzi tub with internal heaters. There’s nothing quite like relaxing in a hot bath after a long week, and Jacuzzi offers a world-class spa experience in your own home.
  • Upgrading to comfort height and water reducing toilets, faucets, and sinks. Water fixtures are small pieces of a puzzle that can come together to create a true luxury bathroom.
  • Upgrading advanced showers. Popular choices include new showerheads, steam showers, and the ioDigital shower system from Moen. The ioDigital includes an easy-to-use interface that allows you to set and maintain the perfect temperature and flow with digital precision. The LED indicators flash until the requested settings are achieved, taking the guesswork out of creating the perfect shower.

5. Site Work and Land Development

As a professional homebuilder, Mitchell Homes’ customization projects aren’t limited to home interiors. We help with all aspects as our buyers need. As part of the homebuilding process, we aid in all necessary site work and land development tasks on your property, including:

  • Grading to ensure a level surface and sound structural foundation for your entire home
  • Drainage control using up to 400’ or silt fence to prevent long-term damage from erosion, sediment loss, and standing water on your property
  • Paving, including stamped patterned pavement for a distinct custom home exterior.

These may be our most popular options, but they only represent the tip of the iceberg for what Mitchell Homes can create in your home! What upgrade options does your custom dream home include? For more inspiration, be sure to request a plan book from Mitchell Homes!
