Residential Finish Checklist

DSC_0112

The following is a list of common interior and exterior fixtures and finishes that will need to be selected for most residential projects.

Exterior Finishes
During the design process we will develop a computer model and exterior elevations of the house.  These will give us a clear idea of what the home is going to look like and help us make exterior material decisions.

Electrical Fixtures
The amount of electrical fixture options can be a bit daunting.  It is easy to get overwhelmed with the many options.  Keep it simple!  Make your statement with just a couple of accent fixtures.  During the design process we will work with you to develop an electrical plan to show lighting types and locations.  Also check out our general room-by-room fixture list with the link below.

Appliances

Cabinets
During the design process we will develop interior elevation drawings so that all of your cabinets get built just the way you want them.

Countertops
We find that selecting a countertop is a balancing act between looks and function.  Click below to see our blog on selecting countertops.

Door Hardware
Think simple and keep it the same throughout the house.

Flooring
There are a lot of options for flooring.  We like wood floors, including bamboo and cork.  Salvaged wood can add timeless character to any home.  Check out the recycled pallet wood floors.  Concrete floors are also beautiful and can save you money.

Tile
Often a simple inexpensive tile can be used to great effect.  Remember tile for bathroom floors and walls, showers, and mud rooms.

Shower Enclosure
This includes frameless shower doors, enclosures, & hardware.

Bathroom & Miscellaneous Accessories
Don’t forget the hooks, towel bars, toilet paper holders, and grab bars.

Paint Colors (interior & exterior)
Always test your colors first.  Most companies offer testing sizes so you don’t have to buy a full gallon.  On the interior we specify a semi-gloss paint on the trim (if we have trim) and an eggshell finish for walls.

Fireplace
Wood burning or gas.  Freestanding or built-in.
