6 Clever Home Features

Regardless of whether these installations are simply a few outlets on the mantle to help with Christmas decorating, or elaborately installed heated floors in the master bathroom, they’ll all make your home more comfortable and more valuable. So, if you plan on building a house this year, take a minute to consider incorporating these five helpful features into plans before you start construction.
