Tips and Tricks
- Create an inspiration file – collect magazine clippings, fabric swatches, or any pictures that will help to convey your own personal style to your Design Consultant. Click here to see a link of some of the most followed interior design accounts.
- Determine your budget for upgrades and discuss this with your Design Consultant so they can help you work within this budget. Keep in mind that the personal selections you choose may only translate into a few extra dollars on your mortgage payments – a small price to pay to turn your house into your dream home.
- Tread cautiously with trends. Trends can be great, but ask yourself if the design you implement today is something you want to look at years from now.
- Think in 3D! It's easy to forget about the ceiling when you are looking at a 2-dimensional plan on paper. But don't forget about lighting requirements. Lighting is the number one underestimated design dimension. It can take your interior décor from good to fabulous without costing a fortune. To accommodate your lighting needs, it's much easier to make changes now rather than after your home is built. Remember that Minto Communities uses licensed electricians to ensure safe and proper installation and peace of mind for you!
- Think about tomorrow. Think about what selections will translate into a higher resale value, such as kitchen upgrades or hardwood flooring. And when in doubt, neutrals are usually the safest bet.
