Below we’ve listed some ways you can be prepared for your visit to a design center so that you can hone in on those features you love and truly want in your home. 

Stick to Your Budget & Pick Your Top Upgrades 

Budgeting is a high priority for any homeowner. It helps to know and understand your budget for your new home. These tips can help to stick to your budget when working with a home builder to plan your new home build. Once you know your budget, you can have a better understanding of what you’re able to spend for your new home including upgrades that fit into your budget. We offer many standard features that are included in the base price but also offer many upgrades as well. There may be features that you have always wanted or would work best for your lifestyle, so it helps to know your “must-have” home features that you’re willing to upgrade. Maybe it is a countertop upgrade for a kitchen that really wows or an upgrade on flooring throughout your new home. To help, here is a list of our standard features and some of our popular home upgrades. Knowing the home upgrades that fit your lifestyle and budget will help you make informed choices for your ideal home. Knowing financially what works and doesn’t work for your family makes this experience super easy and enjoyable! 

Madison Homebuilders offers various financial benefits, such as we do not require a down payment or construction loan and we pay your standard closing costs! Our financing perks can help you better afford your dream home and get the features you want.

Know What’s Best for Your Family’s Lifestyle 

Understanding how your family lives and may eventually grow into a space will help you make wise home design decisions. Give yourself and your family a bit of time to think about this and maybe sit down with your family to brainstorm what works and what doesn’t work in your current living space. Our guide on choosing a floor plan can help you through the steps to picking features that work well for your family’s lifestyle too.

Have an Idea of Your Color Palette and Home Colors

There are oh so many color palette options. Take a look at ideas online and in magazines to help you decide on color options that best suit your family. Having your new home colors in mind will help you navigate your options at the design center and stick to colors and hues you love. But you don’t have to have it all figured out, that’s what our design centers are for. For instance, let’s say you have an idea of the color cabinetry you’d like but are unsure what types of countertops or which granite pattern would go best with your ideal kitchen cabinets, our Building Consultants are here to help show you options that coordinate well with the elements you already have in mind. 

Research Home Styles You Like

Now that you have an idea of your budget, home colors, and features you want to prioritize, do some research so you can find options with that color palette you love. We recommend taking a look through our website, Facebook page, photo albums, and even creating a Pinterest board! This will help you gather ideas for various fixtures like hardware and lighting among other home features that look great with the colors and style you want in your new home.
