Welcome to Branthaven’s inspiring and rewarding Design Centre… a one-stop shop to make your dream a home.
The Branthaven Design Centre is an exciting showroom with an enjoyable ambiance in which to shop for your new home’s features and finishes during the selection process with our in-house design consultants. Our Design Centre was created to showcase the exceptional standards, signature style, and latest home materials and trends that Branthaven Homes is renowned for.
Design Centre Process
Here are four easy steps to making your dream home a reality:
Step 1 — Planning & Preparation
When you purchase your home, there are often several weeks or months to pass until your selections appointment. Take this time to prepare your favourite swatches and inspirational design photos, research your colour and finish options and determine a list of upgrades that you might like to include in your home.
Tip: Become familiar with our materials and options. The Branthaven Design Centre provides regular Open House hours where our experienced design consultants can help you start planning the home of your dreams. Start a folder or binder to collect references of material, hold plans and other house related documents.
Step 2 — Selections & Design
Prior to the construction start of your home, you will be invited to a Design Centre Orientation & Structural meeting where you will be able to select from the available structural items to customize your home. Next we will schedule your colour selections appointment, where your dedicated Design Consultant will review your new home plans, your budget and style, and guide you through the selection process.
Tip: In both events, coming prepared with selections in mind will assist the design team in helping you refine your choices; providing advice and design consultation beyond simply introducing you to options.
Step 3 — Sign-off & Construction
Your Design Consultant will review and finalize your colour and finish selections with you. At this point, your final selection of standard and upgrade features and finishes are ordered, scheduled and coordinated for installation.
Tip: Being prepared throughout the process will ensure you are comfortable with your final decisions and that the process is completed timely and fitting within your schedule.
During the construction process you will be contacted to attend our unique Branthaven “framewalk”, where you will be able to view your home under construction, prior to the finishing stages.
Tip: This stage is where you’ll begin to see the size and shape of things coming together. Take your time. If you are planning for new furniture, bring a tape measure and tape the footprint of the pieces on the floor to ensure a comfortable fit. Remember that beyond this approval stage, changes to walls and structure is very challenging.
Step 4 — Inspect & Enjoy
Prior to closing, a Branthaven representative will join you on a Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI) to view your completed home with all of the finishes and features and show you how to maintain and operate everything within it. Now all you have to do is move in and enjoy!
Tip: Once again, come prepared with your documents and notes. Review your selections and finishes and make everything is as expected. The Branthaven representative conducting your inspection is an expert – don’t hesitate to ask questions and get advice about your new home!
