Here are some of the most common questions our homebuyers have before they get started—and the answers too, of course.
Think of the Design Studio as the creative playground where your house becomes a home. You’ll find a curated collection of product choices with interactive displays and resources to help you and your Design Consultant craft a home that fits your lifestyle and budget.
You’ll be working with a dedicated Design Consultant to ensure you have the best possible Design Studio experience, so yes, an appointment is required. After you’ve signed your Purchase Agreement, we’ll be reaching out to schedule a time that works for you. During your first appointment, we will review all your available choices and options, answer any questions, and help evaluate your selections to guide you through the process.
Depending on the size and complexity of your home, between one and three appointments is standard. At the first appointment we get to know your lifestyle needs and design preferences and select early deadline options like electrical, plumbing, appliances, and cabinets. During the second appointment we finish personalizing your home by selecting key elements of the kitchen, bath, light fixtures, and flooring. The final appointment is to review all your selections and put together the finishing touches to make it unique and personal.
The Design Studio is a thoughtfully curated space where you can personalize many aspects of your home. You’ll find a wide array of choices in flooring, window coverings, fixtures, kitchen and bathroom colors, finishes, and more. It’s all about making home personal and a unique reflection of your taste and lifestyle.
Design Studio hours and accessibility vary from location to location. The best approach is to reach out to your New Home Advisor and ask about a preview tour or other visit.
One of the most important things you can do to prepare for your appointment is to work with your Loan Officer and get a good understanding of your mortgage and your design budget. Then, start pulling together inspiration photos, swatches, pins, or a mood boards of things you like. We’ve even had people bring a favorite lamp to the Design Studio. And finally, think about how you want to live in your home and what’s important to you. Entertaining? Easy maintenance? Pets? Visiting our model homes is a great way to view different designs and help you feel more prepared.
We care about your kids’ safety, and given that the Design Studio may contain heavy and sharp objects and other potential safety concerns, we respectfully request that you make child care arrangements as we don’t have a child-care area. We understand the demands on your time, but hope that with your undivided attention, we’ll be able to maximize every minute of your appointment and ensure that you’re happy with all the decisions you’re making about your future home. Please feel free to take pictures during your appointment so you can share the experience later with your family and friends. We know this is exciting for everybody.
