“I Wish I Thought of That” Custom Home Features

At Bentley Built, we pride ourselves on crafting homes that perfectly blend functionality, style, and innovation. Over the years, we’ve encountered numerous “I wish I thought of that!” custom home features that have significantly enhanced the lives of our clients. Here are some of our favorite features that can add convenience, efficiency, and a touch of luxury to your custom home.

Dog Water Pot Filler & Dog Shower

For pet owners, a dedicated dog water pot filler and shower is a game-changer. Imagine the convenience of having a built-in station for filling water bowls or rinsing off muddy paws. This feature not only makes pet care easier but also keeps your home cleaner.

Floor Outlet for Open Concept

In open-concept homes, floor outlets provide a practical solution for placing lamps, charging devices, or powering holiday decorations without the hassle of unaesthetic cords. Strategically placed floor outlets enhance the functionality of large, open spaces.

Pop-Up Counter Outlets

These sleek, retractable outlets offer a modern solution for keeping your countertops clutter-free. When not in use, they sit flush with the surface, maintaining a clean, seamless look. When needed, they pop up to provide convenient access to power for appliances and devices.

Gas Line for BBQ

An outdoor gas line for your barbecue eliminates the need for propane tanks and ensures you have a consistent fuel supply. This feature is perfect for those who love outdoor cooking and entertaining, providing a reliable and efficient grilling experience.

Home Automation

Home automation systems allow you to control lighting, climate, security, and entertainment from your smartphone or voice-activated assistant. With home automation, you can create customized scenes, improve energy efficiency, and enhance home security, all with a few taps or voice commands.

Hidden Pantry

A hidden pantry offers both functionality and aesthetics. By integrating a pantry into the cabinetry or behind a concealed door, you can keep your kitchen looking tidy and organized while maximizing storage space. It’s a clever way to maintain a sleek kitchen design without sacrificing utility.

Low Voltage Lighting (Accent Lighting)

Low voltage lighting provides subtle, ambient illumination that enhances the atmosphere of your home. Ideal for accentuating architectural features, under-cabinet lighting, or outdoor pathways, this type of lighting creates a warm and inviting environment while being energy-efficient.

Electric Vehicle Charger

With the rise of electric vehicles, installing an electric vehicle charger in your garage is a forward-thinking feature that adds convenience and future-proofs your home. A charger at home ensures your electric vehicle is always ready to go, eliminating the need for frequent trips to public charging stations.

Generator Panel

A generator panel offers peace of mind during power outages by enabling your home to seamlessly switch to backup power. Whether you experience frequent outages or want to be prepared for emergencies, a generator panel ensures your essential systems and appliances remain operational.
