Ideal Design Center Options and Solutions

Homeowners inside home under construction

April 12, 2021

If you’re thinking about building a custom home with Ideal Homes & Neighborhoods but worry the myriad of decisions will be overwhelming, rest easy. The Design Team stands ready to help you through the maze of turning a new house into a home. We can offer design advice on every aspect of the aesthetics of your new home – exterior finishes, cabinet styles and paint or stain colors, countertops, and backsplashes, flooring, faucets, lighting, and more. We can even help with all those small details like where to place your television. 

The Process

Our Design Center will help you focus on what is important when making decisions about options impacting the ambiance and livability of your new home. 

After you sign the purchase agreement for your new custom home, you will be matched with a Design Team member who will take you step-by-step through the entire process. The decisions are yours, but your designer can help you narrow the choices that interest you. 

First Meeting

In this meeting you will work with your designer to set your budget for any upgrades you may want and select the options for your home. You will be able to view samples to compare color and texture and make sure your choices are exactly what you want. After all, you’ll be living with these decisions for a while! This meeting is held at the Design Center with only you and the designer present. This is important decision-making time, so distractions should be held to a minimum. 

Final Meeting

After finishes and other options are selected, there will be a final meeting to sign off on all selections. 

After Final Sign-Off

Your selections and support documents will be converted into a building plan. Your new home will go through purchasing and permitting, purchase orders will be issued, and the details will be sent to the builder. You will receive more information from your builder at the beginning of construction to get things rolling. Before construction begins you will sit down with your builder to review the details of your home and make sure everything is correct.

Trust the Process!

We know you’re anxious to get into your new house so we’ll work hard to complete construction as quickly as possible. Your builder will update you weekly to keep you informed of progress.
