If you’re considering building a new home, the design process can be one of the most rewarding — and overwhelming — tasks you’ve ever undertaken. It’s exciting to know that everything you select for your new home will reflect your own personal style, but there are so many finish choices it can be hard to know which ones go perfectly together.
One of the best ways to approach the new home design process is to browse websites and save the pictures that inspire you the most. To help you get started, we’ve compiled a few of the top websites that our designers turn to for inspiration. Go ahead and create a new folder on your desktop or Pinterest account, because we’re sure you’ll want to save quite a few of the images you’re about to see…
