Unique Features for New Homes

Unique Features for New Homes
One can get creative with the features one adds to their new home design. Here are just a few!

The design of your new construction home can be as unique or as standard as you please. Our goal at Ameri-Star Homes in Glen Burnie, MD, is to ensure you are completely satisfied with the results. Customization is flexible; after all, it is your home! The unique features for new homes below are sure to spark new ideas and stretch the imagination.

Laundry Chute

Older homes used to have multiple inventions built into them that are no longer in use today. One of these contraptions that is still relevant today, however, is the laundry chute. Instead of dragging your clothes down and up the stairs, a laundry chute located in a bedroom or linen closet could send them directly to the laundry room below.

Dumb Waiter

A dumb waiter serves a similar but broader function. It can carry your heavy suitcases downstairs when you go on vacation, deliver hot food upstairs, and bring laundry and cleaning supplies. It is also excellent for hauling groceries if your kitchen is upstairs.


If your home has more than two stories, an elevator could be one of your favorite features for new homes. It is also something to consider if you have family or you yourself might expect to need assistance getting upstairs presently or in the future.

Central Vacuum System

A central vacuum system takes all the dirt and dust you vacuum in each room into a central location. It takes all the debris into a tank located in a remote area, such as your basement. Another option is an automatic dustpan, which sucks up whatever you sweep toward it.

Hidden Storage

Creating hidden cabinets is an artistic, whimsical way to make more storage. You can create hidden panels in walls, under a staircase, etc. If you are storing a safe, you can also find creative ways to hide it.

Beautiful Outdoor Living

Outdoor Living greatly extends the value and enjoyment of your new home.  In the process of building, you have the opportunity to design and build decks, patios, outdoor fireplaces, outdoor kitchens, pools and pool houses, screened in porches, pergolas, beautiful gardens and more.  In the process of locating your home on the lot, Ameri-Star collaborates with you to ensure the greatest enjoyment of your home, both inside and out.
