Top 4 Ways to Personalize Your New Home
October 18, 2019
Building a brand new home offers a fresh start… a clean slate so to speak. One of the many advantages of building from scratch is the ability to personalize the space in the design stage. How many bedrooms do you need? Do you want a smart home? (Who doesn’t?!) Would a finished basement or a loft be a game-changer for your family?
With so many options, we recommend you first make a wish list and then prioritize the design elements that are most important to you and your family. Need a little inspiration? These are the trends we’re seeing here at Wonderland Homes with our new home buyers:
Hotspots for personalizing your new home
- Interior—Interior design finishes provide the greatest opportunity to personalize your new home, offering you the freedom to select the flooring, countertops, and paint colors that best embody your style. Sleek white cabinetry and stainless steel appliances are a popular choice, and glass tiles in a backsplash elevate the sophistication of a kitchen. Geometric shapes are timeless in tile patterns, and durable engineered wood flooring is not only beautiful but also stable, making it an optimal choice in our erratic Colorado climate.
- Floorplan—Open floorplans and vaulted ceilings are in vogue, and for good reason. These layouts accent a home’s natural lighting and make it feel more spacious and luxurious. At Wonderland Homes, we work with you to incorporate the elements you most desire in your new home. Need an additional bedroom? Want a study with a built-in desk? Whether you’d like an optional loft or a finished basement, we believe personalizing your floorplan to meet your unique needs (and even to indulge your wants) should be the foundation of the building design.
- Electrical options—A smart home is a convenient home. Incorporating modern technology is a huge advantage of building from the ground up and a perfect way to personalize your home. From security and entertainment to extra data ports and Wi-Fi-connected appliances and thermostats, it’s possible to manage your home with the touch of a button, all while maximizing the home’s energy efficiency.
- Exterior—At Wonderland Homes, we’ve removed the guesswork from what gives a home’s curbside view its wow factor. Our designers put their expertise to work matching the ideal textures and color palettes to create beautiful exteriors. Choosing a floorplan with an elevation you love, one that invokes pride every time you pull into your driveway, is the final key to ensuring your home exudes your style
Personalizing these few design elements transforms your house into a home. Through one-on-one consultation with expert designers at the Design Center, we’re here to help you capture the essence of your style. Now the only questions is, which floorplan will you choose?
