A lot of choices go into building one of the brand new Chelsea AL homes, but it’s the ability to make so many of the choices that makes a new home so appealing. Once you’ve made the initial choices on homesite and floor plan, it’s time to start thinking about what you want your home to look like in terms of colors, finishes and other materials. This is where our Design Studio comes in and this is also where you often have the most fun. Still, it helps to be prepared before you meet with the Design Studio staff so they can get a clear idea of what you’re interested in and help you find the perfect options.
Home design magazines are still a great option, but these days, people often turn to the internet and sites like Pinterest. Whether you’re scouring websites like Houzz or other online sources of inspiration, Pinterest lets you gather your ideas, even breaking it down into boards for each room. As you pin items and decor that appeal to you from other sites and Pinterest itself, you can start to get a feel for what you’re gravitating toward. This will help you narrow down your choices.
You can also create mood boards for each room or break it down into items you want throughout the home. This isn’t necessarily where you need to focus on furniture; that can come later. This is where you start nailing down your choices for things like flooring, paint colors, tile, countertops, hardware, cabinetry, appliances, doors, windows and window treatments, lights, trim work, exterior options, electrical outlets, and landscaping.
Figure out the items that are most important to you. In some cases, you can always choose to go with the building standard options to start and then make changes in the future on things that aren’t as important, especially if you’re working on a tighter budget. By having clear ideas, you can work with the Design Studio to find the best prices and determine what you absolutely want versus what can come later. It’s important to have a budget, but by also having clear examples of what you want, the design team may be able to help you find more affordable versions that will fit your budget.
Learn about what the standard features are and see what are considered upgrades. This will help you determine what are must haves and what you can live with for now. Also, take pictures of everything you end up choosing so that there’s no confusion down the line when everything is installed. It’s easy to forget which items you chose, and this way you won’t have any surprises.
Finally, try not to second-guess your choices after the fact. Easier said than done sometimes, but in the end, you chose those items for a reason and they’re sure to speak to you once again when you see everything in place in one of those beautiful Chelsea AL homes. Between your research and our Design Team’s assistance, you’re sure to have a home that is a beautiful reflection of your lifestyle and tastes.Tags: homebuilder in chelsea al, new homes in Chelsea AL
