Get inspired to design your new home in Florida

You’re ready for a new home. You know what size home you are looking for. You have an idea of the number of rooms, yard space, or kitchen design you want. Maybe you’ve spent hours binge-watching your favorite home design shows on HGTV and already have every room planned out. Or, perhaps you have a basic idea of the decor style you like. On the other hand, it could be you have no idea where to start – You just know that whatever your new home looks like, it must have space for your home office and a comfy sofa!

Don’t worry – we’ve got your back! With the Highland Homes Inspiration Gallery, you can feed your obsession for all things design and décor, or find a starting point to discover the new home décor that you love!


What is the Inspiration Gallery?

The Inspiration Gallery is an online tool where you can browse photos of homes built by Highland Homes, see a list of design options in each photo, save the rooms and design options you love, and get inspired to design and decorate the new home of your dreams!

Browsing the Inspiration Gallery

Highland Homes Inspiration Gallery - CategoriesWhether you’re on a mobile device or sitting in front of a desktop computer, the Gallery is simple to use.

Photos are categorized by rooms such as Bedrooms, Home Offices, Kitchens, etc. In addition, photos may be broken into sub-categories to make it easier for you to find what you are looking for. For example, you can browse all Kitchen photos if you’re not certain what kitchen décor you might like. Or, you can choose to see only kitchens with Medium to Dark Wood Cabinets, White Cabinets, or Gray Cabinets if you already know which cabinet color you envision in your dream kitchen. 

Once you have clicked into a category, you will browse photos showcasing a variety of home plans and room styles. Clicking an individual photo will open the room view and show you a list of new home design options in that room. From there, you can ♥ Save your favorite room looks and options, see more photos of the same home plan, and see more rooms showing individual design features you love.
