Designing Your Home – Part 1: A walk through of a Toll Brothers Design Studio

Toll Brothers Design Studios are the only one-stop shopping experience that offer the latest design trends and professional design assistance to help you personalize your new luxury dream home.

Each Design Studio showcases selected products in a series of kitchen and bathroom vignettes, and provides professional design consultants to personally walk you through planning each room of your home.

To learn more about the Design Studio process, I set up an appointment to meet with our design consultants at the Toll Brothers Design Studio in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

There are several steps that go into this process, each one playing a vital part in designing your dream home. The first step, is scheduling the appointment. Once you sign an agreement of sale for your new Toll Brothers home, you will set up an appointment with the Design Studio that is designated for your region. Note that not all Toll Brothers regions have design studios, but your experience will be similar as you work through your selections with your sales representative.

The first appointment usually lasts around three hours, and is intended for you to begin selecting the features you would like for the interior of your home. To clarify, the design studio is only for interior designs; structural design upgrades happen at your community’s sales office with your sales representative.

Your design consultant will walk you through the Design Studio and show you all of the different selections that Toll Brothers and our vendor partners offer. Each area has products that are included in your Toll Brothers home and those that are considered upgrades. Some of your options include:

  • Hardwood flooring
  • Carpet flooring
  • Tile flooring and backsplashes
  • Granite countertops
  • Marble countertops
  • Quartz countertops
  • Cabinet doors with different woods, finishes, and knobs
  • Kitchen and bathroom fixtures
  • Interior molding
  • Lighting
  • Appliances

Next, you will get the chance to sit down with your design consultant and come up with a “wish list.” Your “wish list” will include all of the selections that you would like to consider. It is easier for buyers to eliminate from a large “wish list” rather than add to a small list of only a few options, so pick what you like and then adjust later.

Keep in mind, the design consultants are with you to share their design expertise and keep this process fun and exciting, but there are a lot of pieces that go into your new home. It is helpful if you come to the Design Studio with a general idea of what your budget will be; that way you know what selections are possible for you. It is important that you share your budget with your design consultant. Remember, he or she is there to guide you through the process and assist in creating your dream home.

Your second appointment will usually be held three to four weeks after your first appointment. At this appointment, you will narrow down your “wish list” to what you really want. This is when you will be able to pick and choose your favorite selections and make your final decisions. Some buyers find they need more time to make their final selections, so they schedule a third appointment as needed.

Now, you will have designed the entire interior of your home. You have chosen your favorite selections for every room, and have made your new home into your dream home!

Remember, you may visit Toll Brothers Design Studios during browsing hours too. Browsing hours are set up to allow those who are seriously considering a new Toll Brothers home to come in and browse the different selections and options that are available.

Selections and options vary by region. Speak with a sales representative at the community of your choice for more information. To learn more about Toll Brothers Design Studios, please visit the Toll Brothers Design Studio website.
