3 Ways to Improve the Comfort of Your Home

Capstone Custom Homes - Zero Threshold Shower

There are a lot of elements that go into creating a comfortable home — including smaller features that a lot of homeowners overlook during the building process! The following are upgrades that may be less discussed when thinking about comfort in the home, but many of our homeowners choose them to complete their build and improve household comfort in small but meaningful ways.

Comfort Height Toilet

Comfort height toilets are designed to be a few inches taller than standard height toilets, with the seat usually standing 17 to 19 inches above the floor. These toilets are designed for ADA standards, and are more comfortable and easier to use for taller people, as well as elderly or disabled individuals. If your family meets these descriptions, it’s a good choice to consider.

Ceiling Fans

Using ceiling fans throughout the home (especially in places like the living room and bedrooms) is a great way to keep temperatures consistently comfortable during the summer. This can also help you not need to run your air conditioner as often so you can save on electricity. At Capstone Custom Homes, we can add supplement vents and fans to ensure your entire home is climate controlled.

Zero-Threshold Showers

This is one of the more expensive upgrades, but it’s well worth considering! Zero-threshold showers eliminate the lip or edge that you have to step over to enter a standard walk-in shower. This isn’t just a stylish upgrade for your home — it also improves accessibility and reduces the risk of tripping for older adults. It’s a great consideration if you’re planning on making this your forever home.
