Designing your new home is one of the most exciting and memorable parts of the building process. There are so many beautiful choices of cabinets, flooring, countertops, fixtures, and paint — and the combinations are seemingly endless.
Many of our customers can’t wait to get started designing, and often want to visit the Design Center early in the process so that they can begin thinking about what their new home will look like. With this in mind, we set out to create an easy, fun, interactive way that anyone can use to get inspired with home design.
We are thrilled to introduce Beacon Homes Envision — an all-new interactive design tool that allows home shoppers and buyers to browse, select, and save selections to start envisioning their new home. The tool’s streamlined navigation helps users understand what selections are available and makes it easy to narrow down and compare their choices. Using Envision is simple, and puts you one step closer to realizing your dream home.
How It Works
Envision is easy to use. Start with the Design Checklist to see all the items that are available for your new home, arranged by category. You’ll find selections for:
- Countertops & Wall Tile
- Plumbing Fixtures
- Cabinets and Millwork
Click into each category and you’ll find smaller subcategories. For example, flooring is arranged into hardwoods, carpet, and tile. From there, just click on the images that appeal to you to open enlarged versions with descriptions. If it’s a favorite, click “Add to Wishlist.”
You can save as many selections to your account as you like, and come back to reference pictures or to compare items any time. The tool also lets you know if an item is included in the base cost of the home, or if it is considered an upgrade.
Why It’s Great
With Beacon Homes’ Envision, you can see all the selections we offer in our Design Center, from the comfort of your home. For buyers, this gives you a head start on your design appointment, since you’ll already have an idea of items you can choose from and which finishes you like. When it’s time for your appointment, you can simply view your Wishlist with our in-house design consultant. These images will help her pull together several design packages that you’re sure to love, and you’ll be able to make decisions faster and with more confidence.
If you’re a home shopper and haven’t quite committed to a floor plan yet, but you’re still curious about the selections available to you, you’re free to use Envision, too! Create an online lookbook right within the tool to spark your creative design ideas.
Envision will not replace an in-person meeting with your designer when it’s time to make final selections, but it’s sure to make the process more streamlined, fun, and accessible. To get started, visit our website and we can’t wait for you to get started!
