    Why Should You Set Up a Playroom in Your Home?

    Last updated 5 months ago

    As you start to think about the features that you want in your new luxury home, it is important to consider how you will use them in the future. If you are still undecided about whether or not to include a kid’s playroom in your new home, consider the following benefits of adding a playroom to the design:

    It Is Perfect for Your Kids or Grandkids
    Whether you have young children or have already raised your kids and they are starting to have kids of their own, a playroom provides the ideal setting for children. Your kids and their friends can spend hours playing inside the room, which gives you some extra time to do what you need to do around the house.

    It Can Change with Your Kids
    This extra space does not have to stay as a playroom for the entire time that you live in your home. A playroom can change and grow with your kids. As they start to get older, it can transition into an office where they can do their homework or a workout room. Building a playroom in your house is a smart investment into the future of your life at home.

    It Is a Versatile Space
    When you no longer need this space to function as a playroom, you have a lot of options on how to change it. You can transform it into a media room or even a guest room where you can comfortably host your overnight visitors.

    No matter what kind of features you want to add to your new luxury home, Hawkins-Welwood Homes can do it for you. As one of the premier luxury homebuilders in the Dallas area, we bring you quality craftsmanship in some of the best neighborhoods in the city.

    The Latest Trends in Luxury Kitchen Design

    Last updated 5 months ago

    A luxury home is nothing without a stunning kitchen that can serve as the center of the life in the house. As you and your custom homebuilder start to finalize the plans for your new residence, use the following trends as inspiration for your own kitchen design:

    Wood Countertops and Cabinets
    Exotic woods are making a name for themselves in luxury kitchens throughout the country. Species like African mahogany bring warmth and mystery to your room’s design to add a unique, elegant appeal to your new kitchen. Optimize the visual appeal of your space with this interesting feature.

    Induction Cooktops
    Give yourself every opportunity to make delectable meals on a daily basis with an induction cooktop. These heating surfaces give you exact control over the temperature. You can choose to cook separate dishes or heat up one large piece of cookware that would be too big for other stoves. An induction cooktop creates luxury and convenience for your brand new home.

    A Built-In Refrigerator
    Take advantage of the space in your kitchen by having your luxury homebuilders build you a space for your refrigerator. Not only does this help you utilize the rest of the kitchen for other purposes, but it also creates a beautiful aesthetic effect.

    Tile Backsplashes
    Add some color and texture to your kitchen design with a tiled backsplash. Whether you choose just one color or add a mosaic to the room, this decorative feature opens up your design possibilities and brings warmth and depth to the space.

    When it comes to luxury homes in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, no one does it better than Hawkins-Welwood Homes. We build amazing homes in University Park, Highland Park, and Preston Hollow that are full of luxurious features that help you feel right at home.

    Decorating Your Home in a French Style

    Last updated 6 months ago

    A French decorating style lends itself perfectly to a luxury home. Use the following tips to incorporate this style into your new home to create an amazing aesthetic effect that enhances all of the beautiful features that already exist in the house:

    Play with Soft Colors
    A neutral color palette helps you bring elegance and class to your interior design. Choose furniture and window treatments in shades of cream and understated pastels to set the scene for a stunning French-inspired interior. Enhance these colors with exciting accessories like wrought-iron chandeliers and beautiful vases to create a unique and welcoming interior design.

    Add Modern and Traditional Features
    Give your home a personality of its own by mixing and matching new and old features. Place an antique clock on the mantel of the fireplace and surround it with some modern accessories. Top a modern coffee table with vintage elements that allow your home to come to life. Mixing and matching old and new elements is an easy way to get a French décor started inside of your home.

    Create Interesting Clusters
    From artwork to books, decorative clusters help you draw the focus to a particular area of the room. Take some time deciding on clusters that allow you to create these focal points and direct the attention towards architectural features that you really love. You can add shelves above some beautiful French doors, for example, where you can store books and increase the aesthetic appeal of the space.

    Helpful Tips for Planning Your New Home

    Last updated 6 months ago

    A custom homebuilder cannot build you your dream living space if you do not know what you want. In order to get the best result from your homebuilding experience, you should take the time to sit down and really plan out the features you want to see. Use these tips to plan out your dream home:

    Find a Reputable Builder
    Before you make any plans, you have to find a builder that you can trust. Look through a builder’s portfolio to check out their finished products and see what kind of work they do. Do some research to learn about their reputation in the community so you can feel confident that they will give you the services that you need to get your dream home.

    Decide on Your Must-Haves
    Write down a list of must-have features so you can clearly see which elements to incorporate into your home. If energy efficiency is important to you, your home should be full of features and appliances that help you lower your carbon footprint. Figure out how many bedrooms you need and whether or not you want a home office space. If you can go to the builder with a list of must-haves, it gives the company a better understanding of how you want your home to turn out.

    Think About Your Future Décor
    Paint, cabinets and countertops, and flooring can all change the feel of your décor. If you are moving into your home with furniture that you already own, you might want to think about choosing colors that work with these pieces. If you want to create a completely new interior design, use your house as your foundation for your future decorating style.
