Choosing the Details for Your New Home
August 8, 2018
Making the decision to buy a new home is a big one. It’s a huge investment in time and money, as well as an emotional one. Finding that ideal home presents a different challenge. You don’t make the choice quickly, and you certainly don’t want to compromise on something this important. If that decision guides you to buying a new construction home, you’re probably excited by the prospect of moving into a home where every, single thing is brand new. The step of choosing the details for your new home can be a bit overwhelming for some people. Cothran Homes has developed a process to give you the stylish home you want without the complexities that can feel more like a burden than a joy. When you choose a single-family home at The Retreat, our new community in Simpsonville (near Greenville, SC), we work with you to personalize the floor plan of the single-level design. The Newcastle was designed specifically for this community, so it fits with the surroundings and the aesthetics we envision here. The Newcastle is Craftsman-inspired but can easily be transformed to a Traditional architectural style. The flexibility is purpose-built, to give you creativity in the look of your home. Together, we’ll review variations that will distinguish your new home’s exterior, like the roof design, gables, dormers, and siding. You have the choice of fiber cement siding, which is a low-maintenance, extremely durable, and attractive option. Certain elevations offer board and batten accents, or you can do a combination of any or all of these materials for a truly unique exterior. For the interior, the Cothran Homes design team has developed professionally curated design packages. Rather than spending hours coordinating this faucet, that door hardware, and these cabinets, we present you with packages that have been carefully organized, by a professional, with choices that complement one another. You still have a wide array of options, but we make it easier for you to pull all of the elements together into one harmonious interior design. Do you like the Farmhouse style or do you lean toward a Modern look? Country Cottage or Coastal? Like the exterior of The Newcastle, the floor plan is flexible and versatile. The details will transform it to a home that reflects your personal taste. We’ll guide you through color selections for flooring, walls, and details. If you want two-tone cabinetry and matte black fixtures in your kitchen, your Cothran Homes design professional will reflect that preference in other areas of your home. At Cothran Homes, our goal is to create a home and a building process that is “Simple, Easy, and Beautiful”. In addition to The Retreat, we have a variety of 3-bedroom townhomes and communities in the beautiful towns surrounding Greenville.
