Are you currently looking into purchasing a new home? Or maybe you’ve just got the keys to one? There is a common misconception that buying a new build means you won’t be able to add your own personal touch, but that is not the case.

During design


If you secure your home early enough in the build process, some developers will allow you to personalise the home during the building stage. This will vary between different developers but typically includes choosing cabinet colours, worktop materials, and carpet colours.


It is worth noting that opting for anything that doesn’t come as standard will likely come at a higher price and so this will need to be factored into your budget.
