4 Custom Home Ideas Inspired By Your Vacations

Written by: Penny Siml on Monday, March 07, 2016

Your vacations can inspire your custom home features and design details.

Design inspiration for your custom home can come from anywhere. Whether you love the beaches of Maui or the mountains of Colorado, there are plenty of ways to incorporate your favorite trips into your dream home. Here are four custom home ideas inspired by your favorite vacation destinations:


  1. 1. Custom Pool & Patio

Whether you enjoy lounging by the pools in Vegas or the beaches in the Caribbean, a custom pool and patio can easily be your new oasis. Imagine stepping out your back door onto a sand colored patio to see a sparkling pool, built in benches, lounge chairs, and your own private cabana. It’ll feel like your favorite vacation every time you want to go for a swim.


  1. 2. Authentic Tiki Bar

Let your love of exotic vacation getaways and Mai Tias on the beach be your custom home idea inspired by a vacation. Image an authentic tiki bar complete with a custom bar, grass roof, and bamboo inspired stools right out your backdoor. And if you want to take your tiki bar to the next level, have it installed right in the middle of the pool, so you can swim up to the bar and enjoy your drink lounging in the water.


  1. 3. Rustic Stone Fireplace

If the beach isn’t your scene and you prefer the mountains, then a rustic stone fireplace is the perfect custom home idea inspired by your vacations. Picture yourself settling into a comfortable brown leather arm chair and watching a fire in a fireplace made from rough cut stones. In no time at all, you’ll feel like you’re back in the mountains.


  1. 4. Hollywood Theatre Room

When building your custom home, you want to keep your whole family in mind. Creating a space everyone can enjoy can be a little tricky. A theatre room is a place everyone can enjoy. If you want a space like this for your family, bring a little Hollywood or LA flair to the space with movie posters and comfy chairs. You can complete the theatre look with a built in snack bar and popcorn maker.
