How to customise your home
One of the most exciting parts of buying a new Charles Church home is personalising it using our Select Options. Here’s a look at what’s available, and how to use Select Options to achieve your ideal style.
A new home is so many things – a new community, a place to make memories, and a blank canvas to inject your own personality into. When you buy a Charles Church home, our Select Options will give you a head start on that last one. Using our range of optional finishes, from cupboards to carpeting, you can create a home that feels like yours from the minute you move in.
From the ground up
Warm and cosy, or cool and minimal? Whatever your style, you’ll be able to set the foundations with our range of flooring options. With options of carpet, traditional vinyl flooring or luxury vinyl tiles (LVT), you’ll be able to achieve your desired finish from the get-go, setting the stage for the rest of your furniture and décor.
Get the look: A thick, luxurious carpet in a pale neutral shade will never go out of style. If you’re planning to use statement wallpaper to create a feature wall like in this living room, it will provide a great base to tie everything together.
The kitchen is probably the room in your house that will see the most action, from busy breakfasts before school to relaxed dinners with friends – meaning you’ll need it to be highly functional as well as beautiful. Luckily, through our Select Options upgrades you can fully customise the heart of your home: choose from a wide range of cabinetry and worktop options, pick out your preferred appliances, show your personal style through tiling and fixtures, and make the space work for you with practical additions such as extra lighting and electrical points.
Get the look: A neutral colour palette will really maximise the light and space in your kitchen. Shaker style doors and wood-effect flooring add dimension and texture, while an undermounted sink means the sleek lines of the quartz worktop are uninterrupted.
Our Select Options include a range of tiles and finishes to create the soothing sanctuary you deserve. Upgrade to different sized tiles to achieve your desired look, and choose from a range of colours and styles. You can enjoy cosy towels every time you step out of the shower with a stylish towel rail, and pick out your ideal model of shower from a trusted manufacturer.
Get the look: With Select Options, you can choose half-height or full-height tiling. Here, beautiful full-height tiling has been paired with minimalist accessories for a luxe hotel feel.
Enjoy the benefits of bespoke built in storage when you choose a fitted wardrobe with Select Options. From traditional hinged doors to sleek high gloss and sliding mirrored panels, there’s a choice of upgrades to give you a wardrobe that will be a huge practical benefit, and make a stylish feature in your bedroom.
Get the look: If you have a fitted wardrobe that faces a window, opting for mirrored sliding doors like these can be a great idea – the light will be bounced back into the room, maximising space and brightness.
