Making Design Decisions – Customizing Your Home
The first decision has been made…you’ve opted to buy new construction! It’s such an exciting process – you’ll get to experience the creation of your dream home from the ground up. But for some families, there’s more than a little bit of stress involved when it comes to making some of the design decisions they need to face. At Ernest Signature Custom Homes, our expert team of design consultants takes pride in walking our homebuyers through every step of the process, ensuring that everyone is completely comfortable at every stage of construction. Buyers usually fall into one of two categories; the ones who know exactly what they want, and those who have a general idea of what they might like, but aren’t completely sure. To be honest, more buyers of new construction fall into the latter category, not the first, so don’t feel at all overwhelmed if you find yourself in group two. An important part of our job is to make sure that we make the right suggestions and help you build a house that you’ll love for a lifetime. Once you’ve selected your floor plan, it’s time to get personal. Choosing the individual elements that set your home apart from the others you’ll see can be fun…so let’s get started! It’s time to visit our design studio – The Gallery at Ernest Signature Custom Homes. Within days of your new home purchase, your design consultant will call to schedule an appointment at your earliest convenience. We'll let you know what to expect, what to bring with you, who should come to the meeting and other important details. One of the logical places to begin is with the part of your home that everyone sees – the exterior. Exterior materials include doors, windows, siding and roofing. If you’re not sure what elements impress you the most while visiting our center, we recommend driving through our communities to see exactly how the roofing and siding, doors, windows and available colors look on completed homes. Our clients make most of their interior decisions, such as flooring, lighting, plumbing fixtures, cabinets and countertops during their visits to The Gallery. Our design center is unique in the fact that we have three fully furnished, functional kitchens that give you a fresh perspective into the appliances, styles and layouts that will work best for you. We also have a full line of bath options, including tubs, shower fixtures, sinks, decorative windows and mirrors. Don’t forget to browse our lighting gallery, flooring choices and our “Gadgets and Gizmos” section; a hive of technology choices including smart-thermostat systems, the latest remote controls and dimmer switches, closet systems, handicap bathroom capabilities and more. Regardless of whether you’re highly influenced by current design trends or tend toward a more traditional viewpoint, our design consultants can give you expert advice and make exceptional recommendations. If you’ve done some online research on decorating and home design before your visit, bring your ideas along! We can help match them to your available options and give you results you’ll love. Are you excited to begin your journey? We’re ready to go as soon as you are! Call us today at (912) 756-4135 or drop us an email. We can’t wait to help you simplify the decision making process when it comes to customizing your ultimate home!
