FAQs

What is the Taylor Morrison Charlotte Design Studio?
The Design Studio is available exclusively to our homebuyers. It’s where you’ll go to personalize your new Taylor Morrison home. With the help of a professional design consultant, you can select the options and upgrades that give your new home a custom finish that suits your style and taste.
What kinds of options and upgrades are available?
There are literally hundreds of choices and endless combinations. You’ll see different flooring, paint colors and treatments, window coverings, appliances, cabinetry, carpentry finishes such as molding and base boards, plumbing fixtures such as faucets, sinks and showerheads, electrical options such as added recess can lighting and junction boxes for future ceiling installations like fans and chandeliers and low-voltage wiring for digital technology, stair systems and tub enclosures.
How long is a typical Design Studio appointment?
You’ll have a lot of important decisions to make and you don’t want to feel rushed. That’s why we recommend you allow two to four hours.
Can I just walk in after my first appointment?
Design Studio visits are by appointment only to assure that every homeowner has a personalized, hands-on experience.
How can I best prepare for my Design Studio appointment?
That’s a great question! If you’re buying one of our modeled plans, you might want to revisit the model and take notes or photos of things you like. Take a look at the floor plan online and think about how you’ll live in each of the rooms and where your furniture will go. Will you need extra electrical outlets, lighting, surround sound wiring, ceiling fans or other things that will affect your lifestyle? Pull together a file of magazine pictures and website links of design elements that appeal to you. Bring along paint chips, fabric swatches and anything else that will help your Design Studio Consultant understand your personal taste and preferences.
What should I bring to my appointment?
Please bring a personal check. We do require a deposit for all options selected. Be aware that your deposit is non-refundable.
How much should I budget for?
Everyone’s budget is different. Whatever you decide to spend, your Design Consultant will work within your budget.
Can I finance my options and upgrades?
Yes. Most of the time, your choices can be included in your mortgage. Your Design Studio Consultant will know all about your add-to mortgage allowance and will work with you to stay within your guidelines.
How long do I have to approve my selections?
You will receive a cut-off date schedule at your first visit. All option decisions need to be made according to your schedule.
Can I bring my children?
You have a lot of very important decisions to make. That demands your undivided attention. In our experience, it’s difficult for little ones to sit patiently for two to four hours. We recommend that you arrange for someone to watch your children during your appointments.
