You may be surprised how difficult it is to design your dream home. Decisions as small as, how many bedrooms do you need and what kind of cabinets you like, can be intimidating.
Here are a few simple tips that will make designing your dream home not only doable, but enjoyable. Let’s get started.
Decide what you do and don’t like
Before you decide what your new house should include, you have to determine what you do and don’t like where you live now. What are your must-haves? What have you always wanted to change? Go room by room, creating a list of everything you can think of, big or small. Here are a few examples:
- Walk-in pantry space
- Extra cabinets in the kitchen
- Pocket office or butler’s pantry
- Kitchen island
- Deep kitchen drawers vs. cabinets
- Recreation room
- Built-in home entertainment centers and bookcases
- Walk-in closets
- Luxury shower with multiple showerheads
- A separate mudroom
- Smart technology
- Modern farmhouse or coastal exterior
Create a portfolio
Build a file of pictures, plans, and ideas you want to include in your house. You can start by visiting Fischer Homes online to browse pictures of model homes. You will also find floorplans and 360° tours of our most popular plans.
Pinterest and Facebook are great tools. Fischer Homes keeps these pages updated with photos of our newest models that feature the most up to date design trends.
Visit model homes
Model homes are professionally designed to showcase the features that buyers today are searching for in their next home. They also help you decide what kind of house is in your price range and what ideas you can emulate. No matter what stage of the process you’re in, our model homes are a great place to get ideas.
An upside to building your home is you can choose where you live. Drive and walk around neighborhoods, ask about local schools, find the nearest grocery stores, and discover information about whatever is important to you as you choose where to build your dream home.
Fischer Homes prides itself on building beautiful communities in the areas that are most popular to live. We even offer rewards for referring friends and family members to live in our communities.
Visit the design center
If you’re having a tough time choosing what you want, or just want to browse for ideas, visit a Fischer Homes Design Center for a showcase of options. We have locations in each of the 6 markets where we build. It doesn’t have to be intimidating.
In fact, a complimentary design center appointment is included in the purchase of a new home. This appointment allows you to see what’s available, as you choose floor plans, counters, cabinets, and so on. Making choices is easy and fun when the options are all in one place, and a designer is guiding you through the process.
“We offer thousands of combinations of options for you to choose from,” says Lindsay Alderson of Fischer Homes Lifestyle Design Center. “I’m happy to help ensure your style is represented in your new home and make the process as simple as possible.”
When you’re ready to make your dream home a reality, call or visit a Fischer Homes model home near you to meet with a Sales Counselor, schedule your design appointment, and start your building journey.
