Brampton Luxury Home Design Basics

Designing a custom home lets you choose everything from exterior finishes to flooring and kitchen style, but sifting through the latest luxury home designs can be a little overwhelming. With so many options and new trends from which to select, here are some tips to make the process easier.

Before you start the design process, ask yourself the following questions:

  • How will the design be compatible with you and your life?
  • Does the design suit your purposes?
  • Is the design practical for your needs?

For example, when thinking about kitchen design, ask yourself: what will the main function of the kitchen be? Will it be intended primarily for meal preparation, family gathering, entertaining or dining?

Get Inspired and Hire a Registered Builder

Look through your favourite home magazines or search websites for inspiration. Keeping tabs on what inspires you will make the design process with your custom homebuilder so much easier.

Tarion is a private corporation that administers the province’s new home warranties law. The primary purpose of Tarion is to ensure that builders abide by building codes and to protect consumers when a builder fails to fulfill their obligations. Illegal home builders can cost buyers tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. Only trust the quality of a Tarion builder.


Identify the features that are most important to you and your lifestyle by listing the features you can’t live without, whether it’s heated floors or a freestanding tub.

Function and Flow

Consider the flow of your final design. Base floor plans of your home according to your day-to-day activities and needs. For example, if you like entertaining, an open floor plan with easy access between the kitchen, dining room and living area would likely work for you.

Also, think beyond the present and consider how you will be using the home down the road. You might want to include an extra room in your luxury custom home plans for future growth, even if you don’t see a present need for additional space.

Building a custom home is an exciting undertaking and working with a Tarion registered builder will help you implement your Brampton luxury home design with confidence.
