Getting ready for your design center meeting is thrilling! It can certainly feel overwhelming as you are getting ready to meet with Kristine and talk about your home’s finishings, because you want everything to look amazing.. You want the kitchen to look amazing, the bathroom to be spot-on, and you want your home’s design to look cohesive and well thought out. If you’re feeling nervous about making the right choices about your home’s finishings, no need to fear! Here are some resources that will help you put words to what you are visualizing.
1) Drive Around Town
One of the beauties of living in Northern Virginia is the unique homes each city has to offer. The styles driving from Aldie to Reston are like night and day! Whatever style you’re interested in: traditional, French country, modern farmhouse, or Mediterranean-you’ll find it. Hop in the car or put on your walking shoes and explore surrounding neighborhoods in the area.
We also encourage you to look at the homes we’ve built for past clients. Looking at other home’s exteriors are a lot of fun, but sometimes you just want to look inside! That is not a problem with our homes. If you contact our sales team they will give you access to our virtual tours library. In some cases we can schedule a home tour with our previous homeowners, so you can get a sneak peek of what your future home could look like.
