A Few Luxurious Building Materials to Consider for Your Custom Home
There are few experiences that are as thrilling as designing then building your own custom home.

That includes determining which materials you want each aspect made out of. And from classic materials that have been popular for decades (and even centuries), to new materials that offer cutting edge aesthetics and sustainability, there are a lot of options to choose from. Let’s take a look at a few luxury building materials that you might want for your custom home.
4 Luxury Building Materials for Your Custom Home in 2017
As anyone who has spent any amount of time living in Florida knows, it’s a place where you have to factor the sun into everything. Low-E windows ease the impact of the sun by allowing less heat to pass through. This both decreases your A/C costs, and protects furniture, artwork, and other possessions from sun damage.
Essentially, you get a cool roof for the same reason that you wear white rather than black on a hot day – because it will reflect the heat of the sun, ensuring that you stay cool indoors. While the initial cost of cool roofing is slightly higher than traditional roofing, the A/C savings make it worth it.
An oldie but a goodie, granite countertops are a big hit in 2017. Not only do they look nothing short of gorgeous, but they provide a durable, easy to clean cooking surface. Honorable mention: honed granite, which offers a nice matte aesthetic that makes a good alternative to its glossy cousin.
Offering a modern, sleek visual is stainless steel, which can be used in a variety of forms, from a clean, utilitarian looking metal staircase to a more tactile chain-mail or laser-cut aesthetic.
