Colour Selection Guide

YOUR COLOUR SELECTION
APPOINTMENT

Building a new home is an exciting time, and choosing the colours and finishes to customise it and make it your home.

This can be a huge undertaking and we want to help you maximise your appointment.
 

Your colour selection appointment is where we finalise the selections for your new home, so some prior research is a valuable investment in making sure you are prepared.
 

Colour selection appointments generally run for 2 hours and are held at the Stroud Homes Display Home

BEING PREARED
  • Make yourself familiar with your facade, design and standard inclusions

  • Understand your budget, and how much wiggle room you have to move for things you might want to change or upgrade

  • Consider areas that you may like to upgrade, investigate costs prior and have a back up option should ideas be cost prohibitive

  • Put together a collection of images and ideas that inspire you

  • Visit showrooms and websites of key suppliers. Big ticket items like

    bricks and flooring, visit showrooms and collect samples to bring along.
