For some, the most exciting part of the home buying process is décor selection. For others, it can be overwhelming. At our new Design Studio, we cater to everyone, whether you need more assistance, or less. If you have a keen design sense, or you need to find your inner-interior-designer, we are here to help!

In the meantime, here are five steps to help you prepare for your Design Studio appointment.

Book Your Design Studio Appointment

This is the first step in an exciting process! Our team of professional consultants will contact you to book your appointment at our Design Studio. Your appointments will take place over two sessions, lasting 2-3 hours each time. Once your first appointment date and time is booked, we will send you a price book to review, with some reference material, so that you can prepare for your upcoming appointment with our team.

Gather Décor Magazines and Website Ideas

Before you arrive for your appointment, take some time to treat yourself to those stunning décor magazines and peruse house and home websites. Tear out or print what you like. Take note of emerging trends, classic looks and anything that catches your eye. Bring all of the magazines and all of your inspiration photos with you to your appointment. It will give our design team a good idea of what you like and we can show you similar selections on display in our Design Studio.

We recently did two blog posts with helpful tips for designing your dream home and the latest kitchen trends for 2022, click below if you want to check them out:

Kitchen Trends for 2022


Designing Your Dream Home


Take a Virtual Tour

On our website we have virtual tours that are great for inspiration! Virtually walk through kitchens, bathrooms and living spaces to see how our design experts have pulled the rooms together.

We also have Model Home Galleries featuring images of designer-curated homes. Treat them like a slideshow and flip through, room by room, to be inspired! Take note of what flooring, countertops, cabinetry and hardware you like, and our team can show you similar selection that you can touch and feel in person at our Design Studio.

Prepare a Budget

Before you make any decisions about finishes, it’s important to have a good sense of your budget and how much you want to spend. Throughout our Design Studio, we have standard options and upgrade options for each category and our team can help you make the best selection for your budget.

Once you have your budget in mind, we recommend that you make two lists: Must-Have and Nice-to-Haves. While viewing your digital floor plan on any device, move room to room jotting down the various type and colour of flooring, paint colours and any specific finishes such as cabinetry and hardware that you would like to see in person during your appointment.

*Estimated Monthly Cost of Choices refers to the additional monthly payment amount attributed to the design choices and upgrades you have selected, and includes principal and interest, as well as taxes and insurance (both based on national averages), and is based on a 30 year full amortizing fixed rate loan. The borrower's actual rate and associated payment will vary from borrower to borrower depending on the details of the loan transaction (i.e. borrower's credit score, loan-to-value ratio, property type, occupancy of property, establishment of an escrow account, etc.).
