Design Your Home on a Budget

A custom home doesn’t have to break the bank. At Wayne Homes, we offer a wide range of customizations. The sky really is the limit! But, we also offer cost-effective options that still give you the customization and creativity you want when designing your home on a budget.

One easy way to stay within your budget when building with Wayne is making selections from the Included Features list. Far from typical “builder grade,” these materials, fixtures, and finishes are a carefully curated list of options that make your home both reliable and beautiful. We offer trusted brands that have that perfect combination of value and quality while keeping design in mind.

The Richmond II and Hampton floor plans are two great examples of homes that are budget-friendly and look great with our more affordable customizations.

Here’s a breakdown of these features:

Luxe Laminate

Both of these homes feature Wilsonart laminate countertops. They have the look of marble or granite…without the hefty price tag.

Spacious Showers

The Richmond II features a large, 60″ Sterling Ensemble shower, which is more affordable than a tile shower.

Quality Cabinets Included

Although not shown in these homes, Aristokraft Oakland oak and Sinclair birch stained cabinets are offered in our Included Features, and they are beautiful quality-made cabinets.

Included Paint Colors

Just like these cabinets, we have a list of included paint colors you can choose from to keep your costs down. Ranging from grays to popular beige colors, you can visit us to see the list of paint colors and choose the right ones for your home.

Durable Flooring

The Richmond model shows level 2 laminate vinyl flooring in the foyer, kitchen, and dinette, which is the most affordable laminate flooring we have. Durable and fashionable, laminate flooring is a great choice for high-traffic areas.

Want to see more for yourself? Visit one of our Model Home Centers or our Design Center to see the options in person. You’ll be able to feel the quality and see firsthand that even our most affordable designs are built to last.
