When building a modern custom home, making decisions and finalizing cabinetry, tiles, countertops and everything else in between can be one of the most difficult tasks for homeowners. Our designer and selections coordinator, Tiffany Trask, is the expert in this department. She walks each On Point client through the selections process, but she says the key to making it a smooth and easy process is focusing on each room one at a time instead of on the allowance category. For example, instead of focusing on your entire tile budget and tackling the entire home at once, think about the tile in your bathroom along with the countertop and cabinet choices. Designing one room at a time is more manageable than selecting tiles for your whole home at once.

It’s easy to get overwhelmed by every decision and selection needed to build a custom home, but with Tiffany’s guidance and process of taking it one step at a time, our clients find that it is much easier (and less stressful) than they thought it could be!

By tackling one room at a time, homeowners can make sure that every feature complements or matches the other features in the room. For instance, when picking tile for the kitchen, Tiffany has homeowners consider the type of countertops and cabinet paint colors at the same time. Sleek flat-front custom-built cabinets painted gray perfectly complement bright white quartz counter tops and a marble tile backsplash.

It’s also important to consider how your lighting and hardware choices will go hand in hand with your plumbing fixtures. Rather than focusing on your hardware budget and selecting every knob throughout your home at once, or every light fixture at once, again, we recommend going room by room.
