One of the many benefits of building your new home is selecting the finishes, materials & colors for all aspects of it. Hand selecting each attribute allows you & your family to truly personalize your home. It is one of the most exciting steps in the process for our customers- but it can also be stressful! There are quite a bit of selections to make & with differing tastes it can be somewhat of a task.
Our designers will walk this process with you but it still helps to do a little prep work beforehand! We’ve got you covered though with three tips to help you prepare & make the selection process easier & less stressful for you!
Do some research
It helps to know what your like & don’t like before heading to select your colors. Spend some time beforehand looking at different options for both the interior & exterior of your home. New trends are popping up every day that you might want in your new home. Pinterest is a great place to search for possible color combinations & ideas.
Know your budget
Each neighborhood has a distinct set of standard features that ultimately affect the sales price of your home. In the event you’d like to upgrade some of the features of your home, you’ll want a firm budget in mind before you start selecting finishes & colors. Decide what is most important to you & select those finishes first.
It is always best that the homeowner(s) be the sole deciding party in the color selection process. This will be your home, so your opinion & tastes are most important. As the old saying goes “too many cooks in the kitchen!” More voices & subsequently more opinions will make the process more stressful than it needs to be.
Keep these tips in mind when scheduling your color selection meeting for your new home!
