This week, myself and a colleague needed to make exterior and interior finish selections for one of our client’s new model homes. This part of the process is far and wide one of my favorites because I am allowed to use my real estate & new construction experience while being creative and coming up with new design ideas.
I understand that some of my new construction clients find this part of the process grueling but having a good resource and a one stop shop helps quite a lot with the decision making process.
Every interior and exterior material needed to be chosen in one day so we headed to Degeus Tile & Granite to hack away at our to do list. The studio itself is large and very accommodating. After 90 minutes we left having selected tile, granite & quartz counters, flooring, and backsplashes for an entire 3,500 sq ft home and we realized we were able to choose so efficiently due to a few factors:
- Everyone was friendly but did not hover or follow us around, pushing their ideas or sale items on us.
- The studio was set up in a way that allowed us to browse, set things down we liked, and see it all next to each other.
- There were a lot of really great options in different styles but the number of choices were at a level where we could freely decide without second (and third) guessing ourselves.
I can’t say enough about this place. It’s heaven on earth for someone building or assisting clients with the process. And for those of you who hate the idea of choosing your materials, the staff, (who have a passion for this) will be happy to make selection recommendations for you based on your budget. I mean… this doesn’t get easier.
