The purpose of the De Young Design Studio is to allow you to be in control and hand pick the features you want to see in your new home.
With a wide variety of designer color, textures and amenities to choose from and experienced professional Design Consultants to work with, the De Young Design studio makes designing your new home fast, conveniently easy and uniquely personal. The personal selections available in the Design Studio are constantly being updated to bring you the latest styles, finishes and high-performance features you desire to fit your taste and California lifestyle.
We understand that everyone has their own taste; no one should have to live in a home with every aspect picked out by someone else.That’s why we allow our buyers the unique opportunity to personalize their homes to complement their individual style.
At our Design Studio, you can handpick several features to truly make your home uniquely yours and compliment your individual sense of comfort and style. We are committed to making this process as enjoyable and fun as possible!
Here are some ways to prepare for your visit to the De Young Design Studio visit:
1. Tour Our Model Homes
Take a look at our model homes at the De Young Welcome Centers and pay attention to all of the finishes and features. Make a list of the things that you really like and might want to see in your own home. We try to showcase a wide variety of options within our model homes to give prospective homebuyers a taste of the unique ways they can personalize it. We find this is such a helpful tool for people to see features in an actual home before picking it out and deciding to put it in their own home!
2. Look Through Design Magazines, Pinterest, and Houzz.com
Flip through home design magazines and cut out some images of styles that really pop out at you. There are dozens of home magazines that offer a plethora of design ideas sure to interest anyone. Also check out some online and mobile sources like Pinterest, Instagram and Houzz. These both offer hundreds of images to look through and you can really see what you like or don’t like in a home. Save any images that you might want to see replicated in your future home and our design team at the Design Studio will do our best to accommodate your vision. You can also find De Young Properties featured on Instagram, Pinterest & Houzz, as well.
3. Prioritize Your Needs and Have a Wish List
Once you’ve toured some of our model homes and done some image gathering, it’s a good idea to prioritize what you’d most like to see in your new home. At the top, put the things you absolutely fell in love with and really would like to see in your home, and work your way down with the features and finishes that you liked but could do without, if need be. When it comes down to it, this is mostly to be used for financial purposes when trying pick and choose some features while staying in your budget – it’s always good to have a prioritized list and game plan!
4. Complete Our Lifestyle Questionnaire
Prior to your De Young Design Studio meeting, we will send you our Lifestyle Questionnaire. This brief survey will walk you through basic lifestyle and home style questions to allow our design consultants at the Design Studio to get a general idea of what you’re looking for before you come in. Not only will it help them be better prepared to design your new De Young home, it’ll help you think about some aspects and priorities you maybe hadn’t given much thought before.
5. Attend A De Young Design Studio Preview Night
Speak with a De Young Sales Associate to see when the next De Young Design Studio Preview Night will be.
