Homes by Taber strives to set the standard for homebuilders in Oklahoma and across the country, and that includes the technology we invest in to make the homebuilding process more enjoyable and simpler for our buyers. One of the newest technologically advanced features on our website launched to improve the customer experience is the interactive floor plans, which gives customers the ability to visualize exactly what their future home will look like with their style choices. An interactive plan is included for every single floor plan we build, and showcases the finishes like pendant lighting and backsplashes, exterior paint color combinations, and floor plan layout options you’ll have when you build a home with us. Have fun with the selections and changes. It’s completely non-committal and allows you to really play with your layout and style choices in your home buying process. After all, building a home should be fun!
Customer experiences are so important that we are one of the only builders to invest in this technology in the state — and the only home builder that gives users the option to customize the exact kitchen that comes with their floor plan. Read on for more details about this tool and how it can help Oklahomans build the exact home they’re envisioning.
After selecting the floor plan you’d like to personalize, you’re only five simple steps away from seeing your ideas, design style and feature selections come to life. First up is the overview, where you can choose from the available elevations for the floor plan, layout-altering options like bonus rooms and half-bathroom additions, and the exterior materials of your home. Our home’s exterior styles come in a combination of brick and siding, and the selections you make will dictate the overall look and architectural style of the outside of your home.
Not sure which floor plan is right for you based on renderings alone? Check out the virtual tour gallery to digitally walk through finished versions of our plans or schedule a tour to walk through them in person.
The next step will be to design the exterior, which means selecting the colors for the siding, brick, board and batten, trim, front door, shutters, garage and more. Buyers can go with one of our suggested color schemes, created by our designers based on current housing trends and classic looks that never go out of style. But our buyers are never stuck with only a few choices—so feel free to start with a suggested color scheme and alter it to your liking, or even start from scratch and hand-pick the color for every part of your home’s exterior.
Designing your floor plan comes next, where you’ll have the opportunity to include the most popular floor plan changes offered at Homes by Taber. We already include over $80,000 of features in our homes that other builders would charge for as upgrades, so it’s not uncommon for customers to build without adding any enhancements to their home. Here, you can add options like a closet to a bonus room to convert it to a proper bedroom, include dual showerheads or a stand-alone tub in the primary bathroom, add detailed character to your living spaces with coffered ceilings, or a mud bench in the mudroom space. Customers can easily see whether the options they are selecting fit within the budget because pricing for most options are visible to remove any confusion or uncertainty.
The most popular options our homebuyers are adding these days are extending the back patio to enjoy even more outdoor living space, adding a trash can pull out in the kitchen island, and including a side access door from the garage for convenient trash access. See the changes these options will make to your layout right before your eyes with this interactive tool, envision the flow of your future home, and know that the luxury features you pick will add even more value to your property.
After floor plan design comes interior design—which, in our opinion, is the most exciting part of the process. This step showcases the exact kitchen that comes with your floor plan, and allows you to determine the finishes, colors and materials that go into it. It’s not always easy for customers to envision their interior selections all together and this tool allows them to see their selections in their virtual kitchen before the home is built. Choose from different styles and colors of cabinets to set the tone of the space, and then have fun mixing and matching other details. While islands can be the same color as the cabinets, it’s also a great place to include a pop of color and let your personal style shine through.
After finding your favorite backsplash, you can pick the cabinet hardware, kitchen faucet and beautiful light fixtures to best complement your other selections. Find the perfect flooring and even choose the style of pantry door that you’re most drawn to. The interactive floor plan feature will update as you browse, so play around with your options until you find what fits the feel you hope to create in your Taber home.
Once you’ve weighed all of the options and made your choices, the interactive floor plan feature will generate a brochure detailing everything you’ve opted for. It’s not unusual for customers to bring these brochures with them to their appointments when they purchase their home or to their design color selection meeting.
This brochure can be sent straight to our team to help kick off the process of purchasing your home, to your personal email, or printed off. You can also save your favorites in your profile to compare your favorite floor plans and narrow down your choices.
Don’t worry—you can change up your choices when the time comes to actually build your home but this helps you be more prepared and confident about the choices you are making in your biggest investment.
