Some people like to blend in with the crowd, following what their neighbors and friends do. Others prefer to stand out from the crowd as trendsetters and individualists. In a sea of black umbrellas, would you be the red umbrella or another black umbrella. When it comes to home decorating, the majority of us are more comfortable being in the middle of the crowd rather than ahead or behind everyone else.
Standing out from the crowd can be a good thing. With most new home construction your neighbor down the street or even next door might have the same exact floor plan as yours. In many neighborhoods today, homeowner associations dictate how the exterior of the home should look. In this case, the only way to stand out from the crowd is how you decorate the interior of your home.
Upgrades and custom options for buyers from the builder are the first step in making your home your own. Implementing which upgrades you want, and can afford, will help your home stand out from your neighbors. Any changes to the builder’s basics will give your home more of a custom touch. Changing carpet color, switching from carpet to hardwood, adding a focal wall or color to the walls are all options you can chose when building new. Fixtures, lighting and counters are also typical areas that offer upgrades and options when working with a builder on new home construction.
In a crowd of black umbrellas, be bold and be the red umbrella. Or if you prefer, be blue, green or yellow!
