Creating textured walls that add interest without overwhelming your living space can be a challenge. One easy way to add interest and soft texture is by adding white shiplap to your space. The unique design is perfect for the popular modern farmhouse look, and your budget.

Another option is to add textured monochromatic tile, like the Ambra Collection from Artistic Tile. Each piece is hand carved and honed to polish and shape the stone, giving it a wave-like appearance. You will instantly feel more serene as you look at the gentle flowing design of each tile. The Ambra Collection is available in six color options and because it is natural stone, it will accentuate any décor.
Bringing the outside elements in has never been more elegant.

The modern farm house design has reached an all-time high in popularity. Though, you may wonder how this modern differs from a traditional farm house design? In this example, the Troon Manor (plan #9166) takes the Farm House Design and ups the ante.
With highly desirable features such as a luxurious owner’s retreat with coffered ceilings, a large kitchen designed for entertaining, and flex spaces throughout, the Troon Manor gives luxury to an otherwise more modest design.
By incorporating luxurious features, you can be surprised with something a little unexpected. The open floor plan and welcoming exterior are natural amenities found with most modern farm house plans; however, it’s the extra touches that will grab your attention!

As we move into 2019 and celebrate more than 35 years in the industry, Design Basics, LLC, is optimistic about the future of residential construction and its growth potential. We saw many changes in 2018: from the popularity of the modern farmhouse to substantial growth in residential building in the south and west. This year is poised for growth around the nation and we are anticipating a slight shift from modern farmhouse to a more industrial design preference from consumers.
New Website. We are pleased to announce the launch of our newly redesigned website, www.designbasics.com. Like our home designs, our website is contemporary, welcoming, and easy to navigate. Our new search function allows you to search by livability, collection, plan type, designer, and many other features. Additionally, you will find many useful resources at your fingertips by reviewing materials on our blog and bookstore. You will also see new photo realistic renderings on many of our plans as well as 3D interior floor plans, to be unveiled later this year. All of which make it easier to visualize the livability of the space as realistically as possible.
Great Design. We are also publishing a new plan book with over 75 floor plans. All of the plans included in this book are new and have not appeared in any of our previous publications; and, include many of our most requested amenities. As a thank you to existing customers, we will automatically send you a copy. If you are not an existing customer and would like a copy, please give us a call and we would be happy to send one your way! Many of our new floor plans have been designed with versatility in mind. For example, the McAdoo plan (#29380) was designed to easily transition to a multi-family plan, the McAdoo Springs plan (#29381). And, our Woman-Centric floor plans are not only designed with her in mind but also as value-engineered plans, mindful of the constant fluctuation of building material costs. A win for everyone!
Preferred Builder Programs. As the first national home designer to offer unlimited-build licenses, Design Basics has always been focused on builders’ success. We’ve re-vamped our preferred builder programs – Builder-Centric℠ and Woman-Centric Matters!® – to bring you more advantages and ways to separate yourself from the competition. Exclusive discounts, educational materials, Livability at a Glance™ colorized floor plans, personalized marketing materials, and name recognition on our website with a link back to your website are just a few of the many benefits offered with these programs.
From America’s Premier Woman-Centric Home Designer, we wish you much success in 2019 and look forward to working with you as your home design and marketing partner!
Design Basics…where great design matters.
