Kitchen Design: Modern Features You Won’t Want to Live Without

By | New Homes

Modern design is king in today’s home. Clean lines, contemporary touches throughout and a host of other upgrades have been making their way through each room of the home for years, and the kitchen is no exception. In the busiest room of the home, shouldn’t there be modern touches as well? Doesn’t the kitchen deserve the very best that designers and builders can offer? We think so! When it comes to kitchen design, here are some modern features you won’t want to live without.

Smart Kitchens

Smart home technology is taking over virtually every space in the home, including the kitchen. In the days of making life easier, perhaps the kitchen is the room that can benefit the most from these technological upgrades. Everything from smart appliances to smart tech gadgets can be found to make life a bit easier in the kitchen. Smart ovens allow you to control the temperature and cook time from your smartphone and touchless faucets are dominating this space in the home. Other smart additions to the kitchen include:

  • Refrigerators

  • Coffee makers

  • Wi-Fi enabled crockpots

  • Microwaves

  • Thermometers & scales

  • Blenders

Smart devices make cooking easier with less worry, making smart technology a top feature that many homeowners desire. Builders and designers are also focusing on this aspect for their new homes to appeal to the masses.

Sleek Design

Many homeowners and designers and seeking to minimize the “stuff” in the kitchen by implementing a more sleek, low profile design. Clean lines and simplicity reign in the home, which means that the kitchen should naturally follow suit. Many homeowners are also choosing to remove the upper cabinets to allow for a less cluttered look in the space, but seek other ways to avoid this area from looking too boring. Bringing in materials with texture, such as reclaimed wood has been a trend, giving this space more depth in its design.

Quartz Counters & Dark Cabinets

The white shaker cabinet style that we loved so much is on its way to saying good-bye as its darker counterparts are now taking center stage. More designers and builders are choosing the dark style to “break up” the space and add an element of color to the kitchen. Homeowners are gravitating toward darker cabinetry, because it doesn’t get dirty as easily. This coupled with the sleek look of quartz counter tops gives off an air of luxury in the space. Quartz counter tops are not only extremely beautiful, they’re strong and are easily maintained.

Modern Kitchen Design

In the days of all things modern, it seems as though the kitchen has a tendency to lag behind. With some of these modern additions, you’re able to function at top capacity in this space, while maintaining a beautiful contemporary appearance at the same time. When it comes to the kitchen, adding in touches of technology, clean lines and durable materials will bring your space into the modern world in no time.

At GH Builders, our team is excited to help you build a beautiful home in Southwest Florida, complete with a modern kitchen! Call (239) 451-6157 or visit www.ghbuildersnaples.com to learn more.

Top Home Building Lessons Learned from Hurricane Irma

By | New Homes

It has been quite some time since we have experienced something so powerful, so catastrophic as Hurricane Irma in our tranquil city. The sheer force of Hurricane Irma as she crashed upon our shores is something that not many of us will ever forget, not to mention the absolute devastation that followed. In the wake of Irma’s wrath, home builders across the state came to a conclusion…changes needed to be made. It’s been almost two years since Irma made landfall and there have been lessons learned in all facets of our lives. Here are the top home building lessons learned from Hurricane Irma.

Stronger Roofing Techniques

In the aftermath, it was noticed that many new construction homes weathered the storm quite well, as opposed to older homes that saw ample damage to many areas of the structure. This is true in most all areas, except one…roofing. Roofing techniques since Hurricane Irma have been seen to undergo a transformation. More expensive roofing techniques and materials are being implemented into homes to offer a higher level of protection at storm time. Metal roofs seemed to be spared a lot of damage, resulting in many builders considering this as an option for their homes, and many homeowners opting for metal roofing materials after the storm.

Home Material Upgrades

Concrete block homes stood against Hurricane Irma and her violent winds more so than wood frame homes. This is why you’ll see many home builders choosing concrete block and implementing concrete construction in many areas of the home. These include:

  • Concrete block exterior walls

  • Concrete culverts and aprons

  • Concrete covered lanais

  • Concrete driveways, walkways and entryways

New construction homes are also including either impact-resistant glass or storm panels with the home to make it easier for homeowners to stay protected during a storm. In not having to go out and buy storm panels, this can ensure that more homeowners are ready the next time a storm is on its way.

Flooding Precautions

Flooding is a major concern in our area, especially during a storm of epic proportions, like Irma. Not only are homeowners required by lenders to carry flood insurance if they live in a FEMA designated flood zone, home builders are taking flooding into consideration when they are building new homes as well. Many home builders are elevating their homes to help alleviate the risk of flooding during this dangerous time.

New Home Building Practices

No one could have known what Irma carried with her and how strong of a storm she was going to be, but what we know now is that anything is possible. Home builders across the state are constantly learning new building practices and techniques to better prepare their homes during a catastrophe. The risk is too much for the building industry. That’s why new building techniques and more superior materials are being implemented into new construction homes, and many homeowners are seeking to upgrade their homes to withstand some of the most violent winds that Mother Nature can bring. As we prepare for whatever comes our way, we get stronger, as an industry and as a community. We don’t know what the future holds, but we’re ready for it.

At GH Builders, our team implements some of the most cutting-edge building practices in Southwest Florida. Get started with our team by calling (239) 451-6157 or visiting www.ghbuildersnaples.com.

Benefits of Owning a Home with Land

By | New Homes

You’ve got a lot of options when it comes to finding the perfect home here in Southwest Florida. Among the condos and town homes, attached villas and single-family neighborhoods, you may be finding yourself wanting more. You may have always wanted a home with land, so that you could have more freedom to partake in various hobbies or build the outdoor oasis you’ve always dreamed of, so why not make that a reality? Having the land that you desire can affect so many aspects of your lifestyle. Here are our top benefits of owning a home with land.

Privacy & Space

Many homeowners don’t want to be able to wave to their neighbor from their kitchen window. That’s why more and more homeowners are looking for homes with land, so that they can have more privacy and space. In owning a home with land, you’re able to take advantage of the space and customize it to meet your needs. Having more space on your property allows you to add elements, such as:

You may even opt to install a fence or some lush landscaping to further enhance the privacy of your space. More space also means more places to put your belongings. This is extremely helpful for items, such as lawn and garden equipment, trailers, boats and other large items that need proper storage. You can even choose to have outbuildings on the land, which can house:

  • A shed for storage

  • A garage for RVs, boats, motorcycles and other vehicles

  • A workshop for projects

  • A barn for horses, goats, etc.

  • A guest house for friends or multiple generations

  • A man cave

Having the extra space makes for endless possibilities when you own a home with land.

Appreciate Nature

There’s something to be said about enjoying your morning coffee on the lanai, surrounded by the fresh scent of nature. That’s possible when you own a home with land, as you’re able to get more out of your property by way of plants, trees and other natural elements. It may also prompt you to explore your green thumb by planting a garden or incorporating some blooms around your property. Natural elements ease stress and provide unmatched beauty, often helping to increase the value of your property as well.

Enhanced Entertainment

Here in Southwest Florida, we embrace the outdoors, making outdoor living spaces key elements in many of our homes. When you have land, this space can become something truly spectacular, as you have the space to incorporate what you wish. You’re able to add in a pool and spa area and make entertaining guests easy with an outdoor living area, complete with an outdoor kitchen, so you don’t miss out on any of the festivities. When you have the space, you’re able to incorporate so much more to enhance your Southwest Florida lifestyle.

A Home with Land

When you’re on the market for a new home, there are so many aspects to take into consideration, and compromising on lot size can really impact how you live in your new home. More and more Southwest Florida residents are recognizing the importance of property size and are opting now to purchase homes with land, so that they can live easily with more privacy, space and beauty.

The Advantages of Building a New Home

By | New Homes

Looking for a place to call home can be both exciting and extremely stressful, especially with all of the homes to choose from in the area. From condos to single-family homes, single-story to multiple story designs, the options can be seemingly endless during your journey. There can also be a lot of disappointment, especially if the home you really love turns out to have too many problems. That’s why more and more homeowners are choosing to build a new home from the ground up. Not only is this a way to get everything you want in a home, it can also alleviate some issues along the way. Here are some of the top advantages of building a new home.

Starting Anew

For many potential home buyers, the idea of a home that needs ample repairs can turn them off and lead them to explore other avenues. When you build a new home, all aspects of that home are brand new. New appliances, new floors, new electrical, new roof…basically everything in the home should save you from having to make any significant repairs for quite some time. This can be a substantial money saver, as home repairs can really start to add up.

Customization Options

In building a new home, you have more of a chance to get the home that you actually want, instead of settling for something less. Often times, you’ll be able to customize your floorplan and home design elements down to the small details, choosing the design package that suits your taste to make the home your own. Many builders offer traditional, modern and coastal contemporary design packages, so choosing the right look for your space is simple. Finding the right plan for your family can be easy when you choose to build a new home. This can help you get most, if not all, of what you want up front, without making sacrifices.

Increased Energy Efficiency

A big cost of many older homes is lack of energy efficiency. Leaky A/C ducts and ill-fitting windows affected from years of use can cause your energy bill to skyrocket. In building a new home, you’ll be able to tackle this before it even becomes an issue with energy-efficient appliances and brand new windows and doors. This will help keep energy costs down.

Other Benefits of New Homes

There are many advantages to building a new home, as opposed to finding one that is already built that may or may not be the right home for you. Other benefits of building a new home include:

  • More control over the process

  • Less costly

  • More satisfaction

  • More modern features

Building a new home gets you the right place for you and your family with the features that you need and want in each space.

Your New Home

Instead of just settling for any home, make a home your own. Get the elements of design that you want with the functionality that you need, and rest easy knowing that mounting repairs aren’t in your future. In building a new home, you’ll not only get the home that you want, you’ll be able to customize it to meet your needs.
