Preparing for the Design Services Process

February 4, 2021

You’ve decided to work with Weston Dean Custom Homes on your San Antonio area house, and now it’s time for the real fun to begin. Using our one-of-a-kind custom design and construction service experience, we’ve been helping new home buyers create breathtaking yet functional spaces for years. Jumping into the process of designing your custom home can be really intimidating, but our attention to detail and transparent communication that we’ve built our business around makes it as stress-free as possible. Whether you have an exact vision in mind or need help finding design inspiration, we’ve detailed a few things to remember when preparing for phase one and two of your journey with us. 

Know your budget

One of our goals is to ensure the financial aspect of the home buying process goes as smoothly as possible. We know how frustrating it is when other builders tell you they’ll stick to your budget, and then you end up with unexpected charges or unrealistic expectations. We’ll work with you and your budget to determine the quality of finishes and features that can go in your home without pushing you over your price range, and keep you in the know throughout the entire design and construction process. 

Supply inspiration sources 

When it comes to interior design, we know that some people are coming into their first meeting with an exact vision in mind and a Pinterest board full of ideas. There’s also buyers who want a lot of guidance—maybe they know one finish or feature they like but need help building out a complementary palette around it. We’re always happy to work with both types of buyers, as the interior design process is very personal and can sometimes be overwhelming.

At our concept meeting, we’ll discuss your home vision, your lifestyle and any other ideas you’d like incorporated into your build. We can help you bring every piece together and make your dream a reality. Supplying inspiration photos and videos can help us understand the vibe, color palette and overall style you’re hoping to achieve in your new home. The best places to find inspiration are Pinterest, social media platforms like Instagram and Tik Tok, home design websites, magazines and even television shows. Have a friend or family member with great taste? Bring photos or videos of the parts of their home you like, too. You can also check out our photo and video gallery for inspiration. For further ideas, browse our vision views and learn about our popular styles. 

At a few different points in the process, you’ll meet with our award-winning interior designers to make final selections on outdoor materials and colors, custom cabinet designs, floorings, wall finishes, appliances, hardware and more. 

Custom home study with unique design choicesBring furniture samples

If you’re buying new furniture for your home or bringing already-owned pieces to the new place, we can work with those samples as well. Whether it’s a family heirloom piece you’d like to serve as a focal point, a new leather sectional or even a favorite painting, we can curate a palette that will complement your furniture and accent pieces to make your space cohesive and match your personal style.
