Bathrooms Sparkling with Convenience in your New Home

At Core Homes, we believe bathrooms should feel fit for royalty. The best way to do that? Use precision in the installation of quality products to deliver ultimate, everyday convenience.

When you build your home with Core, you’ll enjoy the comforts of our standard master bathroom that features a tall vanity, which means you can wave goodbye to crouching over your sink as a full-grown adult. Core bathrooms also feature a generously-sized, walk-in closet to make storage with proximity a breeze.

Enjoy our standard shower or, if you love to kick back and relax, upgrade to the optional soaker tub. We offer a variety of further customizations, as well. So, whether it’s a luxury shower or custom cabinetry for towels and toiletries that you want, we can make it happen. There’s no need to fantasize about your dream home. Let’s build it.

 

Call us today at 815-439-9000 or visit our website at homesbycore.com to learn more about building a home that serves as a sanctuary.

New Home Holiday Decorations

There’s nothing quite as inviting as a seasonally decorated entrance to your new home. Bring holiday cheer to your front yard with these fun ideas:

 

 

 

• Decorate an outdoor chair with a holiday throw pillow and a cozy blanket. It can be something a little sparkly or perhaps bring Rudolph to your doorway.

• Next to your front door, you can add a small tree to decorate.

• Nothing beats a wreath on the door. Add your own touches to personalize.

• Pine garland is perfect to drape over the entrance or along banisters.

• Add holiday cheer with your favorite lights. You can coordinate with your other decor or add a splash of color. Try string lights, projectors, icicles or net lights for your bushes.

• Light up your walkway with luminaries. You can DIY this idea or buy them at a local store.

• You can repurpose old jars for luminaries or to add some shine and decoration.

• Add a holiday outdoor rug. Dog lovers unite with this adorable outdoor area rug from Wayfair. • Decorate a Winter Container.

Constructing Sunrooms Specialized for You

Livingroom

Everyone loves a sanctuary. That’s why it is no surprise when new home buyers choose to take advantage of our option to add a sunroom to their beautiful new abode. The sunroom is just one of the options we’re proud to offer to our clients. It’s exciting for us here at Core Homes to construct homes that accommodate our clients’ many different personalities and lifestyles. The sunroom option is an excellent way to make that happen.

We often see families choose to transform the sunroom into a dining room and use it as an extension of space from the kitchen. This leaves plenty of room for everyone to comfortably get together, share a delicious meal, and make lasting memories.

We have also seen the sunroom space crafted into a sitting room where rest and relaxation is at its best. Enjoy bird watching, meditating, or reading in this peaceful room.

The sunroom also delivers an additional dose of natural light to your home, lifting the brightness of the space as well as your mood.

Don’t forget to take a glimpse at the moon in this awesome add-on space. You might even want to park your telescope there.

Call us today at 815-439-9000 or visit our website at homesbycore.com to learn more about building a home that fits you perfectly. Sunroom and all.

Add a Little Fall to your New Home

It’s time to kiss the summer weather goodbye and say hello to the brisk air and gorgeous colors of autumn.

If you’re looking to extend your porch-sitting season a bit longer or spice up your welcome mat for guests at your new home, keep reading for some fun, easy ideas to decorate your stoop, porch, or garden this fall.

• Add color! Simple pops of autumn color make for a great touch. Pick up some seasonally-perfect mums for a container or a throw pillow for an outdoor chair or couch. Looking for a creative way to showcase the flowers? Try placing them inside of a red vintage wagon.

• Layer with haystacks, crates, and baskets and add cornstalks and tall urn garden containers for height.

• Decorate with pumpkins, gourds, pinecones, and scarecrows. Mixing and matching pumpkins of all shapes, sizes, and colors add a nice rustic feel.

• Carving your address or street number into one of the pumpkins on your stoop brings a personalized and clever extra.

• Have an outdoor table? Top it with a bowl full of pinecones, leaves, pumpkins, apples, or whichever fall favorites you’d like. Ornamental cabbage or flowering kale also make for a nice centerpiece.

• An autumn wreath on your front door and a seasonally-perfect welcome mat offer a warm greeting to family and guests.

• Keep a blanket handy. If you’re someone who plans to enjoy this season on your front stoop or on a piece of outdoor furniture, you’ll want that homemade quilt or something cozy nice and close.
