How To Create Curb Appeal in Your New Home

When we drive through a new neighborhood, we expect each home to have a distinctive look that tells us a little something about the family who lives there. It’s called “curb appeal,” and to us here at Weaver Homes, it adds a little something extra to our charming new home communities in Greater Pittsburgh

You know great curb appeal when you see it. The house looks balanced, interesting, and well-kept. The exterior and landscaping are neat and clean, reflecting positively on the owners, indicating that they take pride in their property. And there are some personal touches that add personality and style. 

Plus, homes with great curb appeal sell for about 7% more than similar houses with drab exteriors, if you ever need to move. Overall, high curb appeal makes a community a beautiful place to live, and who doesn’t want that? 

There are a few secrets to great curb appeal, though. Here are just a few ways you can add a personal touch and curb appeal to your new Weaver Home.

 

Thoughtful Landscaping

Your landscape is an extension of your unique personality and style, which is why we offer a variety of bedlines, shrub packs, plant sizes and types to add a special touch to your new home. Your front yard is beautiful from the start, and over time it will mature to add even more curb appeal to your home. 

 

Colorful Accessories

Bringing beauty to your doorstep is a cinch. A container garden is a quick and affordable way to brighten things up. Not a fan of flowers? Try foliage plants. Just plant something low-maintenance so that they thrive even if you forget to water them. (Dead plants definitely hurt curb appeal!) Choose pots and plants that complement the colors and style of your home.

 

A Comfy Seating Area

If you have the space, a classic rocking chair, a bench or a cafe set can be a welcoming addition to your front entry. Create a quiet spot for people watching or a place that beckons visitors to pull up a chair and stay awhile. Even a small chair or a little table on your porch can serve as a resting station between inside and out. 

 

If you’re searching for a new home in Pittsburgh with built-in curb appeal, we’d love for you to come visit any of our communities. Please contact us to schedule a personal tour! 

Tips to Choose the Right New Home Floorplan

One of the most exciting times in your life can be choosing to build a new home. Here at Weaver Homes, we know that choosing the right floorplan depends on how you use your home and how it fits with your lifestyle. From the size and shape, to where the rooms are located in relation to each other, every part of the home can affect your experience, so knowing what you really want is crucial. Here are five tips for choosing the right home for your lifestyle.

 

1) Figure out what size of home will best suit your needs. 

Choosing a floor plan should start with how large a home you need to fit your lifestyle. How many bedrooms and bathrooms are enough for you and visiting guests? How many garage bays do you need? Are you downsizing or expecting to expand your family? Think about the space you wish you had (or don’t need) now and prioritize your most important needs.

 

2) Choose a floor plan based on your lifestyle.  

Lifestyles and family needs differ depending on what stage of life you are in. Before choosing a floor plan, ask yourself: 

 

  • Is your family situation changing, either growing or shrinking?
  • Will you need guest rooms for overnight visitors, or additional living space for visiting parents or grandchildren? 
  • Are you approaching retirement? Should you choose a plan that’s great for aging in place?
  • How do you entertain guests? Do you want formal spaces or relaxed get-togethers? 
  • Do the kids need an additional play space?

3) Trust your instincts on what “feels” right when choosing a floor plan.

All of us know when a space feels comfortable. Take these instincts into consideration when looking at different floor plans. Someone with children may want the primary bedroom up with the other bedrooms. Others might prefer for the primary bedroom to be downstairs, separated from the other bedrooms. 

 

4) Don’t forget workspace considerations.

Are you working from home more these days, or even full-time? Do you have any hobbies or special interests that might require special rooms to enjoy them? Do you need lots of attic or storage space to store your treasures? 

Answering these questions honestly will ensure that you choose the right floor plan for your lifestyle now and into the future. If you need any guidance or suggestions, our new home specialists are here to help! Please give us a call at 724-248-1729 or schedule a personal tour of our models today.

5 Ways to Enjoy Your Outdoor Living Space This Spring

The weather is warming up in Pittsburgh, and there’s something so special about this time of year. Maybe it’s the promise of the gloriously long summer ahead, or the excitement of evenings still tinged with a cool breeze. Whatever you love most about spring, there’s no better way to enjoy it than by relaxing outside in your own beautiful outdoor space. 

 

Let’s look at five ways to enjoy the outdoor spaces of your Weaver Home and make the most of this beautiful spring weather.

 

1) Turn your patio into an outdoor living room

Turn up the comfort factor on your deck or patio with a few plush couches or settees, a soft outdoor rug, pillows for lounging, and lots of cozy blankets for after-dinner drinks and conversation. This time of year, we promise your outdoor living room will get just as much use as your indoor one!

 

2) Make s’mores with the kids or grandkids

If you’re enjoying one of our spacious single family homes at Hickory Glen or Camp Trees, your back yard is the perfect spot for a fire pit. You can find them in an array of sizes and materials to match your style. The little ones will LOVE making their own desserts, and you’ll love making sweet memories, around the fire in the comfort and safety of your own yard. 

 

3) Take in a movie

Believe it or not, your courtyard is the perfect place for movie night! Purchase a screen and projector (or get creative with a white sheet) and set up blankets, pillows, low chairs, and of course, a fully-loaded snack bar to enjoy your favorite films under the stars.

4) Let the light shine

Creative lighting can completely transform your single family home’s outdoor space. Use string lights, fairy curtain lights, or paper lanterns to instantly create ambiance and make our covered patios or decks even cozier and more welcoming. When you add a pair of comfortable, cushioned chairs and your favorite beverage, you’ll never want to leave. 

 

5) Dine outdoors in elegance

Take advantage of spring’s milder weather by having special occasion meals at home. Create an unforgettable dining experience with formal dinnerware, candles, and a gorgeous tablescape. For ultimate luxury, have a catering company take care of all the cooking and cleaning up.

However you choose to use your outdoor space, it’s sure to be a highlight of your new Weaver home. We can’t think of a better way to enjoy the great outdoors than right in your own backyard!

6 Spring Cleaning Hacks for a Fresh Home this Season

Step outside and take a breath of fresh, clean air — spring has arrived in Greater Pittsburgh! If you’ve bought a new Weaver home recently, what better way to celebrate the season of new beginnings than by freshening it up? From your window sills to your pillows, small changes can make a big difference in the overall feel of your living space.

This season, take a few moments to refresh your beautiful home to welcome the best time of year.

 

Spring Cleaning Hacks for 2022

 

  1. Welcome Home: You’ve wiped your shoes clean of dirt and mud for an entire year on your outdoor welcome mat. Give it a major spruce-up by hosing it down and letting it air-dry, taking care to hose off or scrub the area underneath it. Another effective way of stopping dirt in its tracks (no pun intended) is to use a mat on the inside of your door as well. If you already have one, vacuum both sides of it to really get the dirt out for a new season of visitors.

 

  1. Dust It Off: Even the most simple of tasks can make a big impact. Dusting off the often-forgotten surfaces of your home — like window sills, blinds, fan blades, and the top of the fridge — can give your entire home a clean aura and feel. With a cloth, store-bought duster, or dusting gloves (our favorite!) get around hard-to-reach places like coffee maker nooks, picture frames, and vases.

 

  1. Scrub it Out: Believe it not, your trash can needs some cleaning love, too! Although this might not sound like the most fun chore, it’s amazing how much fresher your kitchen can look and smell once the trash can is scrubbed clean. Take your empty can outside, give it a squirt of liquid dish soap and water, scrub it with a long-handled brush, and voila! The smells are long gone and it’ll look good as new. 

 

  1. Bedding Beauty: The place you go to for ultimate relaxation, your bed is one of the most special parts of your home. Refresh this space by switching out thicker, winter sheets and pillow cases for spring ones. Not to mention, a new look — like a light-colored duvet or spring-themed pillows — creates an entirely fresh vibe. Take care to wash duvet covers, give your mattress a quick spray of disinfectant, and rotate your mattress so that the springs remain even and comfortable all year long.

 

  1. Flower Power: The most prominent sign of spring, fresh flowers make this season so lovable. Whether in your primary bedroom, guest bathroom, living room, or kitchen, sweet-smelling flowers like lilacs, tulips, and daffodils make your home feel fresh, light, and beautiful. If fresh flowers make your nose itch, replace them with scented candles, potpourri in dishes, or scented oil diffusers to enjoy the fresh scents of spring.

 

  1. Gut Your Garage: It’s easy to let the things in your garage pile up, but it’s difficult to clean it all up… With the start of spring officially here, make it a point to tackle the garage! After sorting items into piles (keep, donate, sell, recycle), do a little dusting, sweeping, and hosing down, and it’ll be as good as new in no time. 

 

There’s nothing as sweet as springtime scents and a little bit of sunshine! This season, make sure your Weaver home feels just as fresh as the day you bought it. We can’t wait to see how you spruce up your home. From all of us at Weaver Homes, have a happy and refreshing spring!

How Our Online Sales Counselor, June, Can Help You Find Your New Home

Searching for a new home in Pittsburgh can be time consuming and overwhelming. There are so many great choices for housing of all kinds, and in so many areas. How do you narrow it all down without spending weeks or months driving around and looking at home after home? The answer is to speak with a New Home Online Sales Counselor. 

June Kress is Weaver Homes’ Online Sales Counselor, and she’s ready to help you find your new home!

 

What is an Online Home Sales Counselor?

An Online Sales Counselor, or OSC for short, is your initial point of contact when you fill out an online interest form for a new home community, or call a home builder for more information. This person is a skilled customer service specialist, whose only job is to make sure you have all the information you need to move forward in your home search.

June has been with Weaver Homes since 2016 and has a passion for helping people embark upon their home building journeys. She’ll take as much time as necessary to explain the process step-by-step, present all the options that fit your budget, lifestyle, and design preferences, and schedule appointments that work with your schedule. The home buying process has never been more convenient!

 

Why is an OSC important to the new home sales process?

Nearly 100% of home shoppers start their searches online. On builder websites and social media pages you can find lots of information about floor plans, communities, quick move-in homes, and pricing. But when you want to know more, it is time to reach out to June! She can help guide you to the community that best fits your lifestyle, and even to a collection of specific floor plans that has the pricing and upgrade options you need.

 

How can an OSC make my home search easier or faster?

You can save time in your home search by speaking with an OSC. They are resources of information, and know up-to-date details about every single community and every floor plan a builder offers. They can help narrow down your home search within a matter of minutes. Then, all you have to do is schedule an appointment to see the handful of homes you have pre-selected. All will be in your price range, meet your requirements, and have brand new everything. Best of all — they will all have the potential to be “the one.” One phone call can save you weeks or even months of searching, and get you into a new home, faster. 

 

Even though June’s title is Online Sales Counselor, there’s a good chance you’ll also meet her in person! Our customers often reach out to June during the sales process to ask questions because of the friendship she has built with them. And if schedules are tight then June will meet customers onsite herself! She’ll do whatever it takes to make sure everyone gets the information they need in record time.

 

How do I get in touch with June?

It’s easy! Contact June by using our online form or by calling her directly at 724-248-1729. She will take the time to get to know you, your preferences, and your reasons for moving.

Top Home Design Trends of 2022

In 2022, it’s all about peaceful, calming, well-edited interiors. With many people still spending more time indoors, and an overall emphasis on minimizing stress of any kind, interior designers are transforming homes into retreat-like havens that incorporate soothing color palettes, natural materials, and spaces that can be… well… whatever you need. Whether you are designing an entire home, or just want to refresh a few rooms, here are the top new home design trends for the new year.

 

2022 Top Home Design Trends

 

Natural, Neutral Tones

While neutral colors are a mainstay of interior design, this year they are leaning toward the warmer, more natural tones, like beige, white, ivory, taupe, and brownish-grey. These are colors you would likely find in nature (think of a day at the shore or hiking through an amazing forest) and by bringing them inside your home, you’ll find yourself more grounded, relaxed, and focused. Play with these colors in different fabrics, materials, paint, and decor to create an interesting and layered neutral aesthetic.

 

Organic Materials

Playing right into the natural theme, this is the year to bring more organic materials into your interior design. Look for furniture and accessories in natural-finish wood, wicker, rattan, stone or ceramic, and natural fiber rugs like wool, cotton, or jute. Even mirrors and other wall art can take a million different natural forms. These organic materials create a calm and cozy feeling — a great way to combat the higher stress levels of the last few years. Designers fully expect this to be a long-term design trend as we all seek to lead simpler, less chaotic lives. A great side benefit is that these materials are sustainable and can easily be repurposed.

 

Flexible Spaces

Like plastic straws, single-use rooms are out. Multifunctional spaces are in — ones that can transform and change along with your life. A flex room might be both a den and a guest room, or a finished basement may start out as a child’s playroom then transform into a family rec room. Even an open-concept living space can be flexible in that it allows you to place furniture whenever it makes the most sense during a particular period in your life.

 

Dedicated Home Offices

More people continue to work from home these days, and trying to focus in a highly trafficked room or clearing a space on the already-messy dining table just doesn’t cut it. In order to be “on” and professional, find a room or space in your home that can serve as a home office and nothing else (hello, flex room!). Bring in all the things that make you feel comfortable, inspired, and productive — like great lighting, a quality chair, bookshelves, photos, awards, and collectibles. Make this office “off limits” while you’re working, and your feeling of accomplishment will soar.

 

Minimalism

With many of us still spending so much time at home, we need our spaces to feel airy and open, no matter their size. Minimalism is both a way of life and a design aesthetic that can help accomplish that. Use only what’s necessary; keep only what’s meaningful and important. Decluttering your home goes a long way toward decluttering your mind so that you can rest more peacefully and focus when necessary.

 

Biophilia

Minimalism is the way to go for furniture and decor, but in 2022, designers say bring in all the plants you can! Indoor plants have mood-boosting benefits like reducing stress, increasing focus, boosting productivity, and more. Not to mention, they help purify the air by converting carbon dioxide into fresh oxygen — perfect if you’re spending long periods of time indoors. 

 

Serene Green

In line with the overall trend of all things natural and soothing, green is making its way into every designer’s look book as a must-have accent color in 2022. Earthy, organic greens like sage, olive, and forest destress and revitalize, and are associated with nature and growth. Use green anywhere you need a pop of color or need to feel energized, like a wall, accent chair, or pillows. You could even try removing window coverings to highlight your green landscape outside — it’s like built-in wall art!

 

Outdoor Rooms

It’s no longer just the “patio” or “deck.” More designers are transforming these spaces into fully outdoor living spaces. It’s an easy way to enjoy more livable square footage in your home without actually adding any rooms. Bring in multiple seating arrangements, a cozy bistro table for coffee and breakfast, soft rugs for underfoot, and ambient lighting to make this one of the most used rooms in the home. 

 

From all of us at Weaver Homes, we hope your new year is happy, peaceful, and rejuvenating. Happy Designing!
