Celebrating the Grand Opening of Norfolk Homes’ Design Studio

June 13, 2019


Once you’ve selected the homesite and floor plan for your new construction home, the big decisions are done. But there are a lot of small decisions that add up to another big one. All the design details—from the exterior to the interior finishes—contribute to creating a home that is truly personal. To help you along, we have a dedicated professional and extensive resources. Our homebuyers are celebrating the grand opening of Norfolk HomesDesign Studio, and here’s why.

Choosing colors, materials, patterns, hardware, fixtures, cabinet styles, flooring, countertops, and so much more can feel overwhelming to a homebuyer. The more choices you have, the more difficult it can be to make a decision. After all, you’ll literally be living with those choices for a long time, so making the right ones is critical from the start.

Our design consultant is here to make this a pleasant experience. With a brand new showroom at 6015 Jackson Road in Ann Arbor, 2 miles from Norfolk Homes’ headquarters, the studio space was designed to enhance your home personalization experience. You can see and touch samples of all your options. Everything is kept current, with the latest colors and design trends all in one place. 

We will assist you in building your design, one choice at a time. Bring your ideas—color swatches, Pinterest boards, and photos. Talk about the way you live so we can get a sense of your lifestyle and its needs. Share your vision with us and we will pull together the components that can make it a reality.

We have been guiding homebuyers through the design selection process for 27 years and have worked with a wide variety of home designs and style preferences. We know how to help a new homeowner hone in on the combinations that will give them the results they want.

Janet Gilbert-Smith, Norfolk Homes’ Sales Manager said the new showroom demonstrates the company’s desire to make the building experience as enjoyable as possible. “Our goal in building the Design Studio was to make each homebuyer’s design experience one-of-a-kind, creating interiors that uniquely reflect their personality and vision.” 

The design appointment begins the exciting process of personalizing all of your features, colors and finishes and  is an intricate part of the building process.  This is what makes your home truly yours.  

Our Design Studio features selections from highly rated companies, including , Delta, Shaw and Merillat. If a new construction single-family home or townhome is in your foreseeable future, look at our photo gallery for a preview. Then, spark your imagination with a visit to our Design Studio. Also plan to tour Norfolk Homes’ communities in  Ann Arbor, Chelsea, Dexter, Grass Lake, and Jackson to see homesites and available, move-in ready homes. You can choose one of these neighborhoods or let us build on your land. Wherever your plans are guiding you, we hope Norfolk Homes can join you for the journey.

I would definitely buy another property from this group! Wonderful design and superb construction! Hope they build in Northeast Ann Arbor (again)!
