EVERYTHING YOU NEVER KNEW YOU NEEDED
It’s all in the details. You’ve heard it over and over again, but may be wondering what these details are and why you should care. Tailor Built Homes carefully plans these little details into the homes we build (of course, as plans, individual lots and city requirements allow) that make a huge impact on the design, functionality and our buyers’ enjoyment of Tailor Built Homes.
HIDDEN TV CHASE
We know that one of the first things that will be placed in your new home is the TV. To make the process as easy and seamless as possible, we’ve pre-installed a discreet cord chase in both the master suite and the great room that allows you to mount your TV on the wall and put those ugly cords out of sight.
The last thing you want to do when you sneak out for a late-night Swig trip or an early morning cycling class is wake up the entire household with the rumble of a loud garage door. Cue: the Ultra Quiet LiftMaster. With a steel-reinforced rubber belt, LiftMaster has been able to eliminate the noise caused by older chain drive models, giving you a quiet garage door opener. The upgraded Clopay garage door itself adds to a quieter mechanism with an insulated polystyrene core. With the hot summers and cold winters we experience here in Utah, you don’t want to overlook the largest opening to your home when it comes to insulation. On top of the obvious energy-efficient bonuses, these insulated doors make operation even quieter, and provide the garage and home in general with an added sound barrier to outside noise.
We’ve decked out your brand new oversized garage even further with a man door and a wireless entry garage door keypad. When you want to pull out your lawnmower, take out the trash, or just get to your side and backyard through the garage, the man door is your quick and convenient gateway to the outside. You’re welcome.
If you’re looking for an even more extravagant garage, we’ve got you covered. Check out the POPLIN, LYONS, HERRINGBONE, CORDUROY and COBURG plans for features like a drive-through, detached, or 4+ car garage.
SOFT CLOSE DOORS & DRAWERS
Imagine a world where the items in your drawers stay put and your kitchens and bathrooms are free of the sound of slamming doors and drawers. We’re here to tell you it’s magical. The soft close mechanism allows drawers to close slowly, smoothly and quietly. If you’ve ever slammed your finger, or seen one of your kids catch their fingers in a drawer, you know how terrible it is. The soft close mechanism eliminates tiny (and big) fingers from getting pinched or slammed in the drawers.
QUARTZ COUNTERTOPS WITH UNDERMOUNT SINKS THROUGHOUT
Quartz has now surpassed granite in popularity for many reasons. It is low maintenance, strong, and provides the look of natural stone with a more consistent color – which is especially perfect for modern design. We pair our quartz countertops with under mount sinks throughout the home. Of course, the sleek, clean design of a quartz countertop merging with the sink without the interruption of a lip looks gorgeous! It also offers the functionality of more counter space and ease of cleaning.
A mud room transforms what would normally be dead space from the garage to the main living area of the home into a highly functional space for keeping your life organized. By including a built-in bench with cubbies and hooks, your Tailor Built Home now has a place to keep shoes, backpacks and coats out of the car and off the kitchen table.
We feel like every space should be attractive and well-designed while also providing function. This includes places behind closed doors like the pantry, linen closets and bedroom closets. That’s why we put paint grade MDF shelving in storage areas like the pantry and closets. They add function while maintaining a beautiful, finished look.
TALL CEILINGS, DOORWAYS, CABINETS AND VANITIES
The goal is to make #tallpeopleproblems a thing of the past, as least while you’re in your custom-built castle. Not to say that short people won’t love 9’ ceilings and 8’ doors too; really, who wouldn’t? Nine foot ceilings throughout the main, second and basement floors provide an open and airy feel, especially in the basement where lower ceilings can make a home feel especially crammed. We also add 10, 12, and 18 foot, or even double height ceilings in different areas of some of our floor plans to provide a truly elegant and extravagant design. Custom sized windows are meticulously planned out to complement the open floorplans and high ceilings of our homes by adding an abundance of natural light and capturing the best views of the Salt Lake Valley, from Mount Olympus to Dimple Dell Canyon. We round it all out by installing cabinets and vanities at a 36” height, as well as comfort height elongated toilets.
If you’re looking to build a custom home in Salt Lake or Davis county, we would love to hear from you! With communities from Draper to Farmington, including South Jordan and Millcreek, we have the perfect location for you. Our townhomes in Sandy and Draper are also underway, giving our buyers an even wider range of price points with the quality of Tailor Built Homes. Check out our GALLERY for even more inspiration!
