Builders: 3 Reasons to Use an Outsourced Professional Design Center
Building a new home is a very personal experience for home buyers. After narrowing down where they want to live, the next step is working with a builder to bring their dream home to life.
There is competition among homebuilders to provide home buyers with an exceptional design and building experience. For this reason, working with an independent design center is a smart and economical decision that will no doubt pay off in the long run.
Here are three important reasons home builders should consider working with an outsourced professional design center:
It’s cost effective.
It can be a significant expense for builders to operate their own on-site design centers. Not only does it require a sizeable location and the samples to fill it, but it must be staffed with knowledgeable design professionals who understand the latest trends and are able to guide home buyers through the selection process and ensure their vision and “must-haves” list matches their budget.
In addition, premier design centers will have already established relationships with respected manufacturers and can typically offer competitive pricing on a wide range of cabinetry, flooring, countertops, window treatments, and more.
Bottom line: Working with an outsourced design center allows home builders to provide superior design services for far less than it would cost them in-house.
It offers home buyers more space and a wider selection.
It is estimated that home buyers will spend 10 to 20 percent of the home’s purchase price on custom upgrades to fit their unique taste and style, so it only makes sense to offer them a design center that brings to life the myriad options available to them to make their dream home everything they imagine it could be.
Working with a larger design studio like Primera ensures home buyers are not just browsing through sample catalogs but walking on actual flooring samples and sitting in fully imagined vignettes of kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms, and more. From backsplashes to window treatments, the vast array of products on display allows home buyers to touch and compare every option in an actual home setting so they can more easily visualize each element in their own home. As a result, they often purchase more upgrades.
Larger independent design centers also have space for individual meeting rooms separate from the design floor. Ideal for distraction-free collaboration and decision making, these rooms are a place where home buyers can meet one-on-one with designers and flesh out key details of the design process.
Thanks to modern technology, the design process is seamless.
With the help of innovative software solutions such as VEO Design Studio, leading design centers like Primera are able to work with builders in any location to guide home buyers through the design process, ensure they stay within budget, and take the hassle out of building their dream home.
When you work with Primera and VEO software, even a sales office environment can become a designated off-site design center; it creates an online design workspace that brings together all aspects of home design to streamline the process for builders, buyers, and designers.
