What Is the Shea Homes Design Studio?
Our Design Studio was created to give home buyers the opportunity to personalize their new home as they’ve always dreamed. Each step of the way, our design consultants will educate buyers on what’s included in their new home and what design items have available upgrades and options. When meeting with our design consultants, buyers may view features such as flooring, countertops, cabinets, paint colors, light fixtures, and more.
How do I know what’s included in my home?
Each Shea home comes standard with a set of included design features. Included features are home features included in the base price of your new home. Examples include a specific type of appliance, cabinet configuration, door height, flooring, or windows, and vary by home collection. To view these features, visit the community you are interested in and go to the home plan page. Included home features will be listed with the floor plan. Customers may also be able to select upgrades in our design studio.
What is a structural upgrade and what is a design option?
A structural upgrade is an available change for an extra cost that changes the “structure” of the home, such as a covered porch, extended garage, or additional rooms. A design option is a finish option that is available at no extra cost within the house such as flooring, cabinets, countertops, and paint. These design options may also be upgraded from what is initially included in the home based on the customer’s taste and preferences.
Should I Budget for Additional Upgrades?
Yes. While Shea Homes selects some of our most popular design options as included features within the home, most customers will want to personalize their home, and this may include the selection of some upgrades at an extra cost.
What Is Shea Homes Upgrade Price List?
The cost and availability of upgrades vary per community location and home plan. Speak to a Community Representative for the most up to date and accurate information.
Does It Cost More to Upgrade Flooring?
Any upgraded option, including flooring, will cost more than an included feature which is included in the base price of your home.
Does Shea Have Home Design Packages?
Some of our communities offer design packages. Our design consultants will also meet with you to help select design options that fit your lifestyle and your design taste.
Where Can I Find Additional Pictures of Interior Options?
If you are shopping for a new home, view Design Inspirations on the home plan page for the plan you are interested in. Design inspirations will allow you to see some of our most popular design features for the selected plan. Once a home is purchased, home buyers are given access to our Design Studio solution to further personalize their home by selecting individual finishes from our entire catalog of design options such as flooring, countertops, cabinets, backsplashes, appliances and more – all online before ever stepping into the Shea Design Studio. Buyers can save their favorite features for review during their Design Studio appointment.
What Are the Different Upgrade Selections Available?
Upgrade selections vary by community location and home plan. When you purchase a new home, our design studio team will review included features and upgrades available for the home you’ve chosen. In addition to using the virtual design tools offered to home shoppers, you may also be able to review available design options and upgrades with a Community Representative prior to signing your contract. Design upgrades are at an extra cost.
How do I pay for my Upgrades?
The cost of all upgrades will be added to the Purchase Price and paid at closing. In some cases, and at certain communities, additional deposits will be required. Please speak to a Community Representative for further details.
