Design Center

We're Here to Help

We recognize how important it is to make your selections in a pleasant, unhurried atmosphere. Drees makes the design process fun, easy, and worry-free with previews, open hours, and personal attention. Drees Design Consultants are noted for outstanding customer service and insightful professional guidance. They'll work closely with you every step of the way to provide an exceptional experience in making the perfect choices for your new home.

Q: How can I prepare for my first visit to the Design Center?

A: Websites like Pinterest and even our own Idea Gallery on this site are great sources of inspiration. Driving around Drees communities to find exterior color schemes you like is also extremely helpful prior to making exterior finish selections.

Q: What if I can't find what I'm looking for?

A: In the event you are looking for a specific product Drees Homes does not offer, we may be able to submit a Custom Design Request (CDR) to obtain pricing for you. Please be aware that we cannot price all requests due to our construction standards and warranty requirements, but we will gladly work with you to adapt your home to suit your style and your needs.
