Taking a Closer Look at Our Design Studio Process

Design Studio team at Kay Builders excited to help you customize your new construction home

May 16, 2022

Whether you’re building your first home, or your fifth—having the opportunity to customize it to match both your personal style and your lifestyle is an extremely exciting part of the home building process. At Kay Builders, our design experts work day in and day out to assist our clients as they create their ideal CUSTOM-i-ZABLE Homes, and there’s nothing that makes us happier than seeing the joy on their faces as they begin to see their new home come to life right before their eyes. 

“We really want our homeowners to have an enjoyable experience, and we want it to be fun,” said Kate Follweiler, the Design Studio Manager at Kay Builders. “When I’m in my office and one of the girls is with a homeowner during their appointment—and I hear laughter—it makes my heart sing.”

As soon as the architectural plans are drawn up, approved and finalized, the fun can truly begin. Designing your home shouldn’t be stressful, and our team of experienced Design Coordinators knows all of the tips and tricks of the trade to ensure that your home expertly captures your ideas. Before the first appointment, we send our clients all of our current design options over email—allowing them to peruse the features and finishes whenever they’d like before their first meeting. This has given them much more time to look through each piece and truly begin to get a picture in their mind of what their home will look like. Before they come in for their first meeting, we suggest that our homeowners take some time to really think about what sort of design features they like and would like to incorporate into their own home. 

“There are thousands of ways to put our options together and each will bring a different look, so it’s helpful to have a general idea of what it is you are looking for before coming to the first meeting,” Kate explains. “There are plenty of resources out there for homeowners such as Pinterest, HGTV and design magazines to gather some incredible inspiration from.”

When you send your design studio coordinator a few photographs beforehand of design styles you love or you share your dream home Pinterest board with them, it allows them to get a clear picture in mind of some potential finishes we offer that would fit your style. Walking you through the first appointment takes roughly four hours, and in it, we cover everything from flooring options, cabinet preferences and color choices to the overall functionality of the home. Creating a clean, white kitchen is still at the forefront of home design trends today, but adding in some natural tones with wood cabinets has recently been on many homeowners’ minds. As long as you love the features and finishes you choose, your home design is sure to be perfect. 

As you get ready to come in for your first appointment, it’s important to have your budget clearly defined so each of the features and finishes your design studio coordinator shows you are within your price range. If you’ve previously sent photographs of home inspiration images to your design coordinator, you will easily be able to jump right into the process of picking out your favorite pieces as you make your way through each room. Although the options might look seemingly endless, with the help of our experts you will quickly see your home come to life right before your eyes.
