Let’s face it, as fun as designing your own home can be, it can also be a lot of work! After all, creating every room in your home exactly as you envision it means that there are a lot of exciting decisions to be made. Gleaming hardwood or comfy carpet? A rich old-world Italian kitchen or something sleek and sophisticated? Loft or bonus room? A master suite with a soaking tub or luxurious oversized shower with decadent rain shower head?

So with so many decisions to be made, what’s the secret to Design SMART while keeping up with your busy lifestyle?

Here are a few tips.

Get Organized

When you begin planning your custom home, start by organizing and prioritizing. Our free Design Guide includes tips and tools that you can use to make this process easier.

When you’re just getting started, gather inspiration from a variety of sources including websites, tv shows, social media, magazines, and open homes. Let your imagination run wild.

Once you’ve gathered hundreds ideas you’ll find that you like some more than others. Throw out anything that you don’t absolutely love (after all, life’s too short to live in a home that doesn’t inspire you). Finally, prioritize what matters most. That jet tub in the master suite might be tempting, but perhaps the quality time you’ll spend with your family in a game room is more important. Consider both your lifestyle and your budget.
