One thing that makes Buffington Homes different from any other builder in Northwest Arkansas is our design studio. It’s truly a special place where you can get inspired, personalize your home, and feel more confident along the way.
You get to meet with an experienced, accredited designer twice during the building process to help you plan and select every detail of your home. So pulling together your colors, cabinets, and countertops is as fun as looking at Pinterest - and just as easy!

Why Buffington Homes? I love how our Design Studio experience is so unique to Northwest Arkansas. It allows clients to personalize their home with the help of a professional design consultant in one centralized location. It cuts down on the time and money spent building the perfect dream home.
Home is... anyplace I’m with my family.
Favorite space in the home? The Owners Suite. I believe this space should be a “retreat” from the rest of the home. A place that’s relaxing where you can shut out the noise of the world.
Place that most inspires me? I’m most inspired outdoors. At the beach, mountains, or even my backyard. I can always find inspiration from nature.
Favorite part of my job? Helping people design where they are going to raise their children, have birthday parties, watch football games or movies, entertain friends and family members. This is a very special time in people’s lives, and it’s my job to make sure the personalization process is an exciting and enjoyable experience!
Ask me about... the first time I hand-sketched a floor plan. (Hint: It was before I could even read!)

Three Steps to Designing Your New Home
Our design process is streamlined into three easy steps. It's the perfect balance of giving you enough time with our designers without making you feel overwhelmed. Here’s what that process looks like:
See What Inspires You
The first step is to look around and start collecting anything you feel will help your Buffington Homes designer learn about you and how you envision your home.
Gather photographs of things that inspire you, such as design magazines that represent your style, Pinterest boards you have created, or even fabric swatches that caught your eye.
Shape Your New Home
Next, you’ll attend your lifestyle appointment. This is the first of two sessions in the Design Studio. During this time, we’ll start shaping your home according to your needs.
We’ll discuss what you like and dislike about your current home, where you’ll spend most of your time, and who will be living in the home, including your fur babies. This will ensure the right details are in place on the structural side of things.
Select Your Design Elements
The third and final step is your design appointment. This is a longer session with your Buffington Homes designer, and it’s all in one location. You don’t have to run all over town visiting different showrooms to make your selections.
You’ll walk through a checklist of items from top to bottom, and by the time you’re finished, you’ll have everything in place for your beautiful new home!
