The Design Studio at Norfolk Homes

April 8, 2022

At Norfolk Homes, every member of our team plays a crucial role in getting you into the home of your dreams, and the Design Studio team is prepared to help you create your ideal home. Your design studio meetings are critical steps in the home buying process. Laura Baker, our Design Studio Coordinator, will comfortably guide you through the process of selecting premium interior finishes to make your home reflect your family's personality, taste, and unique vision. This is where the fun begins!   

Take a walk through the Design Studio

Once you have reserved your homesite and selected your floor plan, we invite you to schedule a Preview Appointment to tour the Design Studio and get inspired. This is the time to start thinking about your kitchen design. Decide on the must-haves for your family such as double ovens, 30” or 36” cooktop, pots and pan drawers—the choices are many! Review the types of flooring best suited for your needs, in particular ¾ inch hardwood or engineered hardwood, vinyl plank or tile—the choice is yours. How you light your home defines your style and can make all the difference in how the space functions, so consider your sources of ambient, task and accent lighting.  

The Selection Process 

After signing your purchase agreement and completing all of your structural options, you’ll receive six hours of design time with Laura Baker, our interior designer, to assist you through the selection process to fit your budget and complement your lifestyle. In preparing for your first appointment, gather some interior inspiration images and colors that you would like to incorporate in your home. Think about your personal style and what furniture you may be bringing with you to your new home. Then, take a day and tour all four of Norfolk Home’s fully furnished and decorated models to see the variety of interior finishes offered.   

“Definitely having some design direction is helpful,” Laura explained. “Thinking ahead about materials and color schemes will let us focus more time on designing the space. Coming into the meeting knowing your budget and what options are a must for your family will help ensure a productive meeting”.

We had the pleasure of working with Lisa while purchasing a Norfolk Home. Her friendly, knowledgeable, "go beyond the norm" assistance was truly appreciated.
