Design Checklist

Design Checklist

At Huntington Homes, we know that people are as unique as their interests.

Your living space should reflect your lifestyle and interests. Even if you are working within a tight budget, it never pays to cut corners on design. We’ll guide you through the process and help you avoid costly mistakes to assure that the home you build suits the way you live.

What should you take into consideration when developing your perfect plan?

To start, you should think about the overall layout of your new home. How many bedrooms do you want? Do you want the primary suite separated from the secondary bedrooms? Consider your daily routine and look for spaces that will help keep your life more organized.

These are a sample of lifestyle questions we’ll answer with you:

Where do you spend the most time?

How much entertaining do you do?

Is your bedroom a place to sleep or your own private get-away?

Do you work out of your home and need an office?

Does the home computer need to be in a location where children can be supervised?

What would you like to improve from your current home? What do you love about it?

Is it a move-up house for you or is it a down-size house to enjoy your retirement?

How many rooms will satisfy your needs?

Will there be an elderly person who might be living with you at some point?

How do you spend your time in the evenings?

Do you love cooking?

How do you want to handle the informal eating?


Next, our design department will work with you to determine what your home will look like. Think about the placement of windows, natural light and views. How many times has a home been built on a site with a great view to a lake or open space with no view; an opportunity that if captured would not only have added value to the home, but value to daily living.

Once we have a clear idea of style, layout and size, we’ll have a ‘road map’ of how to develop and build the home of your dreams.


Of course, we’ll keep your budget requirements in mind. Budget includes not only the lot and size of the home but also what you want to put in it—features such as hardwoods, carpets, appliances, lighting fixtures and cabinets.

Balance is the key—balance between how something looks and how well it works and lives. Using the above design checklist, we’ll help you develop a plan that is designed to meet your lifestyle and life-stage needs, and we’ll tweak it to perfection.
