Visiting Before Buying

We’d love to have every homeowner visit our studio before their appointment. We really would. But what we’ve found is visiting ahead of your appointment can actually work against making the appointment easier.

Since our design studio experts are busy attending to the needs of their appointments that day, there usually isn’t someone available to answer questions you might have. That can be frustrating and we want this to be fun!

So instead of visiting to see what we have to offer, we suggest gathering examples of things you find inspiring from magazines, online websites and even Pinterest (we have our own Pinterest pages that can help, too!)

Arriving at your design studio appointment armed with your design ideas and desires makes your appointment that much smoother because it gives our design studio experts visual ideas of what YOU like. We can then guide you and your family to the design solutions that make the most sense.

Setting Your Budget

Everyone’s budget is different, so understanding what you can afford is a very important part of the design process. It allows our designers to make sure that your budget is evenly allocated across your entire home. Certain options definitely cost more than others. That’s why we’re here. To help you decide what makes sense for your budget.

When it comes to setting your design budget, a good rule of thumb is to expect to spend 20 percent of your home’s purchase price on design studio options. You could spend more or you could spend less. Remember, the 20 percent rule is just a guide. No matter what you decide, the point is that you’re in control. Pretty cool, right?

We’re here to help you design every square inch of your new Taylor Morrison home. You have expert design advice right at your fingertips! What could be better than that?

Preparing for Your Appointment

As we stated before, arriving at your design studio appointment armed with your design ideas and desires makes your appointment go that much smoother because it gives our design studio experts visual ideas of what YOU like. We use that information to help guide you and your family to the design solutions that make the most sense.

We suggest that you and your family gather examples of things you find inspiring. Creating a file of these inspiration points can help our design studio experts visually understand what your taste in design is and how we can turn those selections into the home you’ve always wanted.

Where can you gather these design ideas? Start with magazines, online websites and even Pinterest. We even have our own Pinterest pages that can help, too!

Another great way to collect ideas is to visit our models and take pictures...LOTS of pictures! This can help you get a general idea of styles, colors and textures that your and your family like. It also gives you a comprehensive understanding of the options available at a Taylor Morrison Design Studio.

And remember, you can expect to spend 3 to 4 hours in our design studio, picking out your finishes and options for your home. It may seem like a lot of time but it goes by fast! All the more reason to be prepared, don’t you think?

What’s Most Important?

With so many decisions in front of you and choices for you to contemplate, it only makes sense to start prioritizing what’s most important for your new home.

So what’s most important?

Actually, there’s no "one size fits all" answer to that question. What’s important to you and your family might not be important to your friends, neighbors or relatives. Ultimately, you and your family have to decide what’s most important for YOUR home. We suggest that you make a list of what you’d like to accomplish in your new home.

What should that list look like? We’d suggest starting by examining your lifestyle. Do you entertain? What are the needs of your growing family? Do your older children need more room to call their own? Do you have pets? Do you care about your resale value?

These are just some of the questions you should ask yourself as you get ready to visit our design studio. Knowing how you will use your house and what you expect to get out of it will go a long way toward helping our designers make your house an extension of your family.

What Design Elements Retain Their Value?

There are many different ways to personalize your home. And after visiting our design studio and seeing all of the possibilities, you can’t help but wonder what design options are the best choice.

Determining what’s the best value for your money is a personal decision. If you plan on staying in your home for an extended period of time you obviously want to make it a home that you will love. If you’re already contemplating your next home, you might also wonder what options will benefit you the most when it comes time to sell.

What buyers value changes with the times and also with your location. A California buyer might value something that a Texas buyer wouldn’t even consider.

Still, there are some things that you can’t go wrong adding to your new home.

Lighting

Accent lighting allows you to create a mood or ambiance in your home. It also allows you versatility and the opportunity to express yourself. More times than not, adding optional lighting components and fixtures turns out to be a sound investment.

Floor coverings

Is it worth it to upgrade your flooring? You bet! Floor coverings are one of the first things visitors to your home will notice. Hardwoods, tile, upgraded carpeting - all of these things add value to your home. Flooring also takes the most abuse in any setting, so make it a priority to get what you want and what fits your lifestyle.

Kitchens

The easiest place to find a return on your design center investment is in the kitchen. Taking the time to design your kitchen the right way can add value to your home. Upgraded cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and stone or granite countertops not only look beautiful, they add plenty of residual value.

Baths

In the bathroom, the little things can sometimes matter the most. Upgraded tile, counters and plumbing fixtures are always big winners. Opting for more expensive bath tubs, sinks and shower enclosures can add value but it’s important not to forget that nicer faucets and shower heads can accomplish the same effect for less money.

Window Coverings

Everyone’s home needs window coverings. They’re not only a decorative addition to any room, they also offer much needed privacy. The Taylor Morrison Design Studio will have plenty of options available for you to look at and consider and can assist in coordinating window coverings with all of your interior finishes. Having this done and installed during the construction process allows for less stress when you move into your beautiful new home.
