How to Choose the Right Home Finishes

Aside from designing your home with us, choosing the finishes can be the best part of the process. It’s the time you get to make your home truly yours. From paint, to floors, to hardware and countertops the choices are endless and you can be as creative or traditional as you wish.

Here are some tips when choosing the perfect finishes for your home.

Gather Ideas for Your Vision

Collaborating with us on how you want your finished home to look is important. Gather ideas online via Houzz or Pinterest or even while flipping through a home magazine. Choosing the right finishes that reflect your style and budget help make your vision become a reality. Remember, it’s your home so choose styles that compliment your way of living and your personal taste.

Start Big

There are hundreds of finish options to choose from, so we suggest starting with the big items first like paint color, flooring, appliances and countertops. Work your way down to smaller items like hardware, light fixtures and faucets. We can help guide you through this sometimes-overwhelming process so you can focus on what finishes matter most to you and what materials make the most sense for each space.

Create the Home You Want to Live In

We can’t stress this enough. If you plan to live in your house for some time choose the finishes and styles you love and forget what's the most popular at the time. Remember, you’re the one living in your new home.

Stick to Your Budget

Staying within a budget can be difficult, but it can actually make the selection process less overwhelming. Direct your attention to products and styles within your price range. Not sure where to start? We are here to help!


From the initial design all the way through the end of construction we are here to help make creating your dream home an easy, stress-free experience.

Ready to start? We’d love to hear from you!
