Your Appointment

Personalizing Your Home

After the purchase of your home, you’ll receive an email from the designSense Studio. We’ll outline the steps involved in the design process, and will ask you to come prepared to your first appointment so that you can make the most of your time with us. This means having a wish list in mind, a sense for your personal style, and if you’re thinking of making selections not included as part of Sabal’s standard specifications, a budget that you’d like to adhere to.

It’s important to know that designing your home takes time, with many decisions to make and at least three appointments needed (typically during weekday business hours of 8 AM – 5 PM).

The design process includes the following steps:

  • In advance of your first appointment at the designSense Studio, your first step will be to meet with Sabal’s outstanding appliance supplier, and to select the appliances for your new home.

  • Your first designSense Studio appointment will be focused on reviewing and choosing a wide range of structural detail options, including:

    • Ceiling heights
    • Cantilevers
    • Fireplace
    • Decks and/or patios
    • Basement development
    • Basement
  • Your next step will be to make the selections that will add personality and style to your home’s interior. With the assistance of our design experts, you will choose:

    • Heating, ventilation and air conditioning
    • Plumbing fixtures
    • Electrical
    • Cabinetry and hardware selections
    • Flooring selections (hardwood, carpet and tile)

    • Paint
    • Railing and interior finishing (baseboards and casing)
    • Optional fireplace detail selection
