Luxury or Quality

Huntsville custom homes are a manifestation of cherished dreams and several years of tireless efforts. When the time to actually build these abodes comes, there is a lot that is considered. Ideal contractors, appropriate materials, latest designs and styles etc., all come under discussion. However, one of the most important discussions that owners are faced with is regarding the choice between luxury and quality.

In case you’re wondering, yes, both these factors can be implemented at the same time. At times, there are budget constraints that hinder the possibilities. However, more importantly, this is a choice that most people make knowingly. Whether to follow inspirations from celebrity homes or to go for higher quality can be a choice that leaves some people quite confused. Here, we try to address some of these issues:


When building a Huntsville custom home, the first option sometimes is to build one that has some luxurious features. Fireplaces, master bedrooms, exquisitely designed bathrooms, open-style kitchens with islands and bars etc. are just a few of the things that people consider. Choosing a luxurious build has its own merits and demerits, some of which are given below:

  • Pros

Without a doubt, the biggest appeal in luxury is the beauty and attractiveness that comes with it. People will be in awe of your house as soon as they enter the main door. Luxury also ensures peace of mind and satisfaction for you in the form of having achieved what you always wanted. Another benefit of luxury is the space and easy access throughout the house which gives an amazing ambiance to the entire place.

  • Cons

A luxurious build usually comes with a high price tag which can be an issue if you are on a budget. Another option might be that you have to compromise slightly on the quality of the materials to give the overall luxurious façade to the home. More importantly, luxurious homes are also difficult to maintain. The spick and span interiors that we see of celebrity homes require countless hours of cleaning for maintenance.


For most people building a Huntsville custom home, quality is of utmost importance. This is because letting go of the luxurious feel in favor of quality materials can be pocket-friendly and still continue to hold attractiveness to a large extent.

  • Pros

Focusing on quality by no means is an indication that the house doesn’t look beautiful. The only thing that is missing is the magnanimous and exclusive feel that you would expect from an upscale mansion. Quality makes up for this slight drawback in terms of value for money. High quality materials will last much longer, saving you large amounts in replacement and maintenance of different elements around the house.

  • Cons

Quality materials are also quite expensive and don’t have as many design choices like luxurious materials. Huntsville custom home owners who focus more on quality material have more difficulty in procuring and then having experienced people install them effectively.

Luxury and quality can be accomplished together but depending on the type of owner, each can take preference over the other. It is important to analyze the pros and cons of both before making a decision. On the contrary, you can simply skip the lengthy debate and opt for both at the same time if you have the budget that allows that choice. At the end of the day, it is your house and your choices.
