Where to Find Custom Home Design Ideas Online

April 21, 2016

From starting with amazing custom home design ideas to decorating your dream house, the internet is the go-to source for home improvement professionals and home design enthusiasts. As a custom design build company, Estes Builders can design and build just about any type of home you could dream of. In fact, the possibilities are endless. Having so many options, though, has its downfalls. Just where do you start? There are so many architectural styles out there and so many floor designs to choose from. Here are a few steps that will help you to narrow down the options as you begin your online search for custom home design ideas.

First, Find Your Perfect Style

Everybody loves a stunning interior, but don’t neglect the look of the outside of your home. The architectural style you choose will influence the look and feel of the inside space. For instance, a Cape Dutch style will look farmhouse-like, complete with gables and a steep roof. Most people have a style that they prefer over others. Research different exterior styles online to find elements from each one that your like. Use sites like Houzz to sift through different styles until you find one that resonates with you. Once you’ve found “the one,” our in-house architect will work with you to include the elements into your final plan.

Check Out Online Floor Plans for Custom Home Design Ideas

If you’ve decided to embark on the journey of building a custom home, no doubt you want something that is unique from the ground up. Search online for floor plans before meeting with our architect so you can let us know what you like. Great sites for looking at floor plan ideas include Floorplans.com, Dreamhomesource.com and ePlans.com. Don’t forget the popular social sharing site, Pinterest, when it comes to gathering floor plan and design ideas. You could even create your own picture board of possibilities to share with our design team.   [action]  

Time to Elaborate

Any floor plan that you pick is just a starting block. Once you bring your ideas to us, we will work with you to create anything you envision for your brand new custom home. We will help you rework any floor plan to make sure you get exactly what you want. But the layout of your home is just the beginning. As the saying goes, “Design is in the details.” Seemingly small decisions like what type of faucets you’ll use in your bathrooms or what kind of kitchen appliances you prefer can make a big impact on the look and feel of your home.
