Are You Having A Custom Home Built? Learn The Benefits Of Working With A Design Center

Posted on: 8 October 2017

If you are looking to work with a home builder to have a custom home built, one of the questions you should ask before selecting one is whether they use or work with a design center. A design center is a one stop shop for all of the finishing touches that go into your home, including flooring options, tile choice and different countertop choices. There are many benefits to working with home builders who use or work with design centers. Learning what these benefits are allows you to determine if you want a home builder that uses one or not. Here are a few of the benefits of selecting a home builder that uses a design center. 

You Can Pick Your Finishing Materials In One Spot

One of the major benefits to using a design center is that you can pick all of your finishing materials in one space. If you didn't work with a design center, you would have to go to various showrooms to select your cabinets, flooring materials, shower enclosures, plumbing fixtures and countertops. A design center has everything available for you at one location so you don't have to spend time traveling from one showroom to the next. 

You Can Ensure All of Your Materials Match

Another benefit to working with a design center is that you can ensure your materials match. If you work with individual showrooms, you have to take your material swatches from one place to another to coordinate all of your materials. If you forget one, you may have materials that don't match or flow well together. Having everything at one location makes it easier to ensure everything matches and flows. 

They Can Make Everything Come to Life

The last benefit to working with a design center is that the center can use computer simulations to allow you to see what your home will look like with your new finishes in place. The last thing you want is to install dark hardwood floors and then realize they are too dark for your space or to pick a bold cabinet color and hate it once it is installed. A computer simulation allows you to see what different materials will look like in your space so you can select materials that you love and that fit in with the aesthetic of your space. 

Selecting the finishing materials for your custom home helps to set the tone for the aesthetic and style of your home. Working with a design center, rather than individual finishing companies helps to minimize the number of places you have to go, allows you to ensure all your materials match and you can see your selections come to life before they get installed in your new home.
