Building a new home is exciting, but it can also be overwhelming. At W.B. Homes, we guide you through the process every step of the way. From home selection and design decisions to financing, construction and post-settlement, we help you navigate the entire process to ensure your new home reflects your personal style. These tips can give you an idea of what the home designing process entails and the steps you need to take to create the home of your dreams.
Create A Home Design List
Create a list of criteria for your home design, starting with the basics — the number of bedrooms, bathrooms and family areas and whether you’d like a more formal dining room or an open kitchen and living area design. Make sure to think about porch or deck styles and the size of the garage you’ll need. List features that are important to you in each room, including kitchen and master bath features, internet and phone connections and even audio wiring for speaker systems.
Select A Home Type
There are countless types and styles of homes available. Whether you’re upsizing or downsizing, it’s important to sit down and think about what type of home will best meet your needs and fit your lifestyle. Are you looking to build a brand-new single-family home on a lot, or would you prefer a carriage home or townhome that’s part of a resort-style or picturesque community? When you see something that appeals to you, jot down notes or create sketches of home design features that catch your eye.
Make Your Design Selections
Before you start construction, you’ll have a lot of important decisions to make. We can guide you through the home designs we offer and help you match your lifestyle and budget with one of our exciting floor plans. Decide if there are any structural or floor plan changes you’d like to make. At our Design Centers, you’ll find exciting and unique color, product and material options for cabinetry, flooring, countertops and more, hand-picked by creative design professionals. A design coordinator can help you choose, review and finalize all of your custom options and selections.
Think About Your Furniture and Décor
Consider the design of each room, paint and flooring choices, lighting and other factors that will affect how your furniture will work for entertaining and daily activities. Putting it on paper can help you create a flow that includes proper seating for dining and socializing. If you’re buying new furniture, now is a good time to start researching as you think about how you want to utilize each space.
Get Ready To Move
While your home is being built, organize your move and get rid of anything you don’t plan to take with you. And don’t forget to relax and enjoy the excitement of moving into your brand-new custom-built home.
