When searching for your new Florida home, location, price, home size and layout are major considerations for your purchase. Finding the perfect home with a layout that you like, colors that match your style, and that is in great condition can be tough when looking at resales. That’s why your choice to shop for a brand-new home, personalized to your style, designed for your life, and built by a reputable home builder, is a smart one!
According to home design experts who spoke at this year’s International Builder Show, in no particular order, here are the top must-have features for new home buyers like you!
Kitchens are the heart of the home and must be highly functional and well designed — As well as offer some WOW. Here are popular features in the gourmet kitchen of your dreams:
Modern day homebuyers won’t settle for laundry machines in their kitchen! Laundry rooms have become a necessity for most first-time and especially second-time homebuyers. Having a dedicated laundry room means not having to listen to loud laundry machines, and keeps heat and moisture in the laundry area. In a two-story home, the laundry is very convenient when located upstairs near the bedrooms.
We offer a variety of Whirlpool washers and dryers, and you can also choose to add a convenient laundry tub for all of your “hand wash only쳌 items, washing pets, or cleaning greasy hands and dirty garden tools on the way in from the garage.
With your busy life, you will love technology options that make your home smarter and everyday life simpler! These options are popular in our new homes in Florida:
If you are like most home shoppers, an open floor plan is at the top of your must-have list. Having unobstructed views throughout the living areas will make your rooms feel much larger, regardless of the size of your home. An open layout brings in natural light, creates great entertainment spaces, and lets you easily interact with others in your home. Parents love it because they can supervise homework or TV time while getting dinner ready, and do not have to worry about what’s going on in the other room. Our most popular home plans include the open layout Parker and Oleander II.
Beautiful views and fresh air make personalized outdoor living spaces a major design trend, and perfect for our nearly year-round Florida sunshine. Most of our home plans include a covered lanai which extends your indoor living outside. Optional screening and ceiling fan installation make this a comfortable space to relax summer or winter, sunshine or rain. You can even opt to add a pool during your home’s construction, to create the backyard oasis of your dreams. And, with the variety of ways to decorate your porch and lanai, you can truly make your outdoor areas a functional part of your home.
Light, airy, relaxing. These are just a few of the words that describe the spa-bath experience. Spa-like master bathrooms are desired by most homeowners, and it’s reflected in the design of new homes. Gone are the days of one small bathroom for the whole family to share! In our Florida new homes, the master suite gets its own private bath with luxurious features that make getting ready each morning less of a chore. The luxury master bath included in most of our homes comes with dual vanities, a tiled walk-in shower, oval or corner-style garden tub, natural light, vanity style fixtures, and a medicine cabinet for additional storage. Choose to upgrade your space with a jetted Jacuzzi tub, dual shower heads, decorative wall tile, and 36쳌 high vanities, to name just a few of the wow-worthy bathroom options we offer.
