An RTM home attuned to your interests and lifestyle
Ready to Move homes aren’t the same as cookie-cutter modular homes, and many people don’t realize that an RTM home is equally customizable as a traditional site-built home. At Greystone Homes, we’ve got a handful of well-designed RTM home layouts that you can choose to start from, and our expert designers can help you customize the plans however you’d like. First you dream it, then we help you draw the plans and build it!
While you’re dreaming up your ideal home, explore these 10 customization ideas for inspiration:
1. Custom Shelving
Create the organization you need for your home library or entertainment system. Including a built-in desk, table or bench into your custom shelving is a great way to achieve both functionality and a sleek, streamlined design that looks great at the same time.
2. Radiant Heated Flooring
If you live anywhere with winters as cold as Saskatchewan, heated flooring is a real treat,
providing consistent heating in a room from the floor up. You’ll never have cold feet again!
3. Extra Outlets
Adding extra electrical outlets is a simple customization option that enhances the level of convenience and functionality of your home, especially when strategically placed to cater to the specific needs and regular activities of your family. Imagine having perfectly placed electrical outlets for everything in your home from the wall-mounted entertainment system to your kitchen appliances, bathroom vanity, home office, and charging stations for your smartphones or tablets.
4. High Ceilings
Living in spaces with high ceilings can increase your feelings of freedom, creativity, and comfort. Even raising the ceiling one or two feet above the average 8-9 foot ceiling height can make a space look and feel bigger, creating the illusion of added square footage and increasing the resale value and appeal of your home.
5. A Mudroom or Larger Entry
An especially smart feature for Saskatchewan winters which require extra dressing up and down before and after going anywhere. If you have a growing family, a singular hall closet simply won’t cut it. For your coats, shoes, sporting equipment, and all the other stuff that seems to accumulate naturally at the main entrance of your home, a mudroom with built-in storage is the perfect solution.
6. Main Floor Laundry
As much as we wish it weren’t, doing laundry is an essential part of housekeeping and there are ways we can make it feel like less of a chore. Consider placing your laundry room wherever it is most convenient for you to be running back and forth from, such as off of the kitchen, garage, or mudroom. Of course, if you want your laundry machines on the upper level next to a bedroom or a bathroom, that is your freedom to choose!
7. A Garage or Expanded Garage
Garage space is always a worthwhile investment to consider for any new home. With an attached or detached garage, you can capitalize on added space for a workshop, storage, or even an extra hangout area.
8. Sky Lights
A strategically placed sky light can fill an entire room with consistent, balanced daylight which is known to improve mood and energy as well as providing an ideal environment for indoor plants. When strategically placed, they can help you save on energy costs and improve air quality by adding or taking away heat generated by the sun or by increasing ventilation.
9. A Kitchen Nook
Maximize your kitchen space with a cozy breakfast nook. A built-in table and benches surrounded by windows could be your new favourite reading corner!
10. A Deck or Patio
Adapt the floor plan for your new home to accommodate a deck or patio space. Maybe you’ve always dreamed of a wrap-around deck, a rooftop patio, or you simply want to extend the length of a standard deck for an expanded outdoor oasis for relaxing and BBQing.
