Technology in the Home: Use Digital Technology to Design Your Own Home

Get ready, you can now design your home from start to finish digitally. Why would you want to design your home digitally, you ask? There are plenty of reasons why! For starters, it makes the whole designing process fun. There are tons of exciting tools for you to explore on the computer.

Not only is designing digitally fun, but it’s extremely simple, with everything right on the computer for you. Your designs are also easily accessible, plus you can save, print, and share them with your family and friends.

The “Design Your Own Home” feature on Toll Brothers’ website has just been updated, and it’s simple to use – go to to check it out! If you are already searching on the Toll Brothers website, all you have to do is select the “Design Your Own Home” tab located at the bottom of the page. Here, you can see what selections are included with the home design you picked and what is available as an option.

To help keep your ideas organized, you have the ability to change the name of a room and add notes to the floor plan. You can also change structural options like adding a covered lanai, an expanded family room, or a morning kitchen. And don’t forget you can add the outlets, receptacles, speakers, and lights to each room. Now it’s time to place your furniture! Adding furniture to the floor plan will allow you to see how everything fits in the room.

Once you’ve finished designing your home’s floor plan and placing your digital furniture, the final step is to decide what colors to paint the walls.  Toll Brothers’ partner Sherwin-Williams® offers several excellent digital color tools to help select the colors that will work best in your home.

Chip It® is an interactive tool you can use to select any image and instantly identify the Sherwin-Williams paint colors that correspond to the colors contained within the picture. It’s never been easier to translate images that inspire you into colors that you can use in your bedroom, kitchen, or any room in between.

The Color Visualizer® tool allows you to upload a photo of a room in your home and visualize how it will look with different paint colors. You can pick and choose different colors to “paint” on the walls, ceiling, and trim so you can see what colors should go where, and how they all come together. If you are using a smartphone or tablet to take the picture, you can use the Color Snap® tool to virtually “paint” the walls directly on your phone or tablet.

Speak to a Toll Brothers sales representative at the community of your choice to learn more about what color options are available in your new toll Brothers home.

Designing your home has never been so easy. With digital technology, every aspect of the home design process is made readily available to you on your computer, smartphone, or tablet. There is even a place for inspiration during the process, and it’s on the Toll Brothers Pinterest page. There you can find design ideas for every room and space of the home.
