Here are 9 of our favourite MUST-HAVE special features that are completely EXTRA but we would LOVE to have in our home.
1. WINE FRIDGE – when you absolutely have to keep your wine at the right temperature. And on display! 🍷
2. KITCHEN PANTRY – You might be hide all your foodstuffs away but pantry-owners never stop showing off their favourite room.
3. OUTDOOR PIZZA OVEN – Gone are the shoddy BBQs. Built-in outdoor kitchens are the thing now, and the ultimate feature is a custom wood-burning pizza oven.
4. MUDROOMS – A must for busy families to neatly hide all their coats, wellies and mess.
5. LAUNDRY CHUTE – Your kids will actually love tidying their dirty clothes into the chute!
6. CENTRAL VACUUM – No more dragging the big hoover around the house – or the handheld batteries constantly running out. Easier in new builds but can be retrofitted.
7. MOTORISED BLINDS – Now with advanced automatic in most homes, almost anything can be controlled by your phone or Alexa.
8. OPEN PLAN BATHROOMS – A new trend in master bedrooms, having open or semi-open bathrooms.
9. HIDDEN ROOMS – The ultimate extra feature. A hidden pantry or bathroom is more and more common, but how about a whole extra wing of the house or a secret kids play area?
