Our Winslow Homes Design Studio gives families the opportunity to make that dream come true with a custom home that fits their lifestyle, location, and budget.
Our Design Studio was created with our customers in mind. Instead of just picking and choosing from a few home builder options in a traditional brochure, we created a space where you can design a custom home from the ground up that feels like it came straight from the pages of an interior design magazine.
In our design studio, you can pick and choose from hundreds of different interior design elements. In the studio, we have samples of countertops, plumbing fixtures, cabinetry, and more to browse through that you can physically put together to get a small preview of the look. This lets you see how the elements you choose will work together in the final product. There is no better way to imagine how your home will look than by seeing how all the elements, textures, and colors work together in person!
If you’re not sure exactly what look you are interested in, that’s okay. Our in-house interior designer can give you suggestions on what elements typically look good together. You will be able to consult with our designer one-on-one to choose every part of how your home will eventually look. Here at Winslow Homes, we have tons of resources available to help you design your dream home!
At Winslow Homes, we’re not just homebuilders, we’re home dwellers. We know firsthand that a home is more than the sum of its parts; a home is in the details and the memories that are shared within its walls. Whether you envision a kitchen for cooking up gourmet meals with your children or a welcoming living room where you can put up a 12-foot Christmas tree, we believe that your dream home can be a reality.
We recognized the inefficiency, lack of personalization, and even hassle of picking out things from a catalog and then traveling to different specialty stores to select things like flooring, cabinetry, and lighting. The Winslow Homes Design Studio provides you with a wide selection of beautiful options at your fingertips. This helps you clearly visualize what design elements will look like together in a space. You’ll hand-select everything from the type of faucet for your sink to the crown molding in your kitchen and see how well they pair with one another. We want our customers to feel confident in their design decisions and our studio makes that possible.
We know that any building can be a house, but it’s the custom details and special touches that make a house a home. The Winslow Homes Design Studio is the place where you can bring your home to life.
The 4,000 square foot Winslow Homes Design Studio and office space features a welcoming lobby, a large meeting room, staff member offices, and its carefully crafted Design Studio. In the Design Studio, you can take a walk through staged bathrooms, kitchens, and more that feature many custom options you can incorporate into your own dream home. When you come to our Design Studio, it should feel like you’ve stepped into a version of interior design heaven — creating your home should feel like an exciting experience, not an arbitrary process.
We want our customers to be just as excited about their home-building process at the very beginning as they are at the end of move-in day. Your space should be a reflection of you and your family and our Design Studio has everything in one place to make your house the place you’re proud to call home.
Our Design Studio is located in downtown Youngsville, North Carolina in a historic building originally built in the late 1800s as a tobacco barn. Over time, the building went through many phases, eventually becoming a general store, then a feed and seed store, and finally a hardware store before it was converted into an antique store that fell into abandonment.
Winslow Homes’ owner and founder Matthew Winslow knew for a long time that he wanted to build a design studio — he just didn’t know where.
With a contract at another site pending, Matthew terminated that, never feeling like it was quite the right spot. Though he had driven past the boarded up building in downtown Youngsville that would become the Winslow Homes office space and Design Studio for years to come, one day it dawned on him that it was the place he had been looking for. While he initially wanted to tear the building down to start from scratch, after meeting with the family who owned the property and realizing their emotional investment in the space, he decided to renovate it and keep its beloved history intact.
Clearing out the space to get it ready for construction, stabilizing the building, raising it up off of the ground to lay a new foundation, and engineering the building were just some of the preemptive steps to creating the sparkling and modern space that customers see today. During the building process, Matthew and the entire Winslow Homes team wrote inspirational words and scripture on the beams of their new work home and dedicated it in prayer.
Our goal is for the Winslow Homes Design Studio to feel as warm and inviting to our customers as it is us — it’s truly a place that has been crafted with intention and created with love.
