Custom Homes in Toronto: Ideas for Customizing Your Space

custom homes Toronto

The rising cost of homes in Canada has driven many Canadians to consider creating their own custom home built the way they want. Custom homes in Toronto are ideal for home buyers who are looking to create a dream home they love with the amenities they want.


A popular argument against custom homes is the inability to move in right away. However, when you decide to build a custom home, you have to take into account that your home will not be completed for a few months or a year. A new home is an investment worth waiting for because it is constructed to meet current buildings codes and you can add energy efficient amenities to save money in the future.


At RDA Homes, we build custom homes in Toronto that are constructed to meet your needs!


What Should You Include in Your Custom Home?


When you are building a custom home, the price can be daunting for some. Yet, included in the price are amenities and features that are suited for your family that you will not need to renovate later. Additionally, at RDA Homes we can work alongside you to stay within the budget you first decided upon. In your custom home, you will not face maintenance issues that can cost quite a bit of money to fix as well. In a pre-existing home, the floor plan you buy will be the floor plan you are stuck with for years to come.


Every part of your home will be customizable during the building process. Here is a list of our favourite features to work on for custom homes in Toronto:


  • Windows and Doors: Your front door and windows will leave a lasting impression on the guests that visit your home. You want a front door that represents your style and personality. For example, if you are looking towards owning a modern and elegant home, a wooden door may not be for you. In addition, for your windows, you must decide on the level of privacy you want in your home. Bay windows are excellent for letting in natural light and for a panoramic view of the outdoors but not for privacy. The best way to begin customizing your home is deciding the theme you want.
  • Roofing: Customizing a fundamental part of your home like the roof is a privilege to new home buyers. You have the choice of choosing a roof that is stylish yet functional, elegant but also durable. The roof slope, the materials used, and the condition it is in are things to consider when customizing your next home.
  • Flooring: Flooring is one of the most important parts of your home. You want to choose a material that works best for your home in terms of how suited it is for your family’s lifestyle as well as the longevity that it offers. For example, carpet is soft to walk on and can be suitable for a family with younger children who are learning to walk. However, carpet would not be recommended for families with dogs because of the potential for stains and trapping dirt. For your next custom home, consult your builder on what they believe is the best flooring for you.
