5 Things to Know Before Your First Visit to the Design Studio

Congratulations! You’ve made the decision to buy a beautiful new Quadrant home, and now it’s time to design your dream home–with a little help from our expert Design Consultants, of course.

Before your first visit to the Quadrant Homes Design Studio, here are a few tips that will help you know what to expect.

1. We’re in this together.
Designing a new home can seem daunting. The first thing you need to know about this experience is that, as a new Quadrant homeowner, you’ll have a professional designer working with you all along the way, from start to finish. Your personal Design Consultant is here for you, and they’ll do everything they can to support you throughout the whole process, one step at a time.

2. It’s all about discovery.
Your first trip to the Design Studio is all about discovering what your needs are, and what you’ve been dreaming of for your new home. This is the time for you and your Design Consultant to get to know each other, so that he or she has a clear picture of the look, feel and functionality you want to achieve in your home.

3. Think about your personal preferences.
Are there things you’ve seen in other homes that you’d love to replicate in yours? What do you definitely not want in your home? Don’t be afraid to dream out loud with your Design Consultant–this will help give them the best idea of how you want your home to look.

4. Consider how and who will live in your space.
At your first Design Studio appointment, your Design Consultant will introduce you to the Studio, as well as walk you through the floor plan you’ve purchased. They’ll also help you think about living in your new home–who will live there, and what will your everyday life look like? Will there be children living in the home? Grandparents? What kind of food will you often cook in your kitchen? Your Design Consultant will work with you to offer you the best options for your lifestyle.

5. Do some inspiration homework.
Got a Pinterest board of your favorite interior designs? Links to homes you love on Zillow or Houzz? Send all of these ideas to your Design Consultant before your first appointment to give them an idea of the direction you’re headed in. Looking through the model home images on www.quadranthomes.com or on our Quadrant Houzz page can be another source of inspiration. Is there a new Quadrant neighborhood in your area? Touring our model homes in person is also a great way of getting a feel for different approaches to design.
