What is a Woman-Centric Home?
Woman-Centric Home Design is based on customer feedback, primarily from women from all over the United States, focusing on increased livability and style. Our designers listened to customers describe design shortcomings these women would change if they could as well as describing problems they wished there was an answer for. Many of the resulting Woman-Centric design solutions and amenities have become recognized as being today’s “must have” design features!
In addition, we help home builders and remodelers use this approach to take the customer’s experience from stressful to delightful…and, accomplish more with their marketing dollars!
Designing from a Woman's Perspective
Our Woman-Centric approach takes home design to a whole new level.

Through our extensive research we developed two unique approaches to designing from a woman’s perspective:
What has the Woman-Centric Approach done for home builders?
