Home Details | El Paso Home Builders

Small details make a big difference! There is a reason why people use that expression. It applies to several aspects in life, and it definitely applies to your new home!

Of course, the design of your new home, the floor plan, the craftsmanship, the quality are all very important when your new home is built. And at Pointe Homes, we definitely have you covered on all that. We work diligently to provide you with excellent customer service and professionalism in our work.

But don't forget about those details. They make all the difference when your new home is complete. When you are selecting light fixtures, for example, you can choose something that reflects your style. Plus, depending on the kind of light you want in your home, you can even choose a dimmer for your fixtures to change the lighting whenever you please. 

And the details don't stop at light fixtures. In your new kitchen alone, you can choose your style of faucet and backsplash. The style and color of your backsplash can be subtle or it can stand out and be the focal point of the kitchen.

There are so many details that go into making your new house a home. At Pointe Homes, all your home features can be modified depending on your needs, style, and budget. We can even help you build your dream home from scratch. Give us a call today and find out how we can start building for you!

Kitchen Window Treatments in New Homes

When it comes to choosing the right window treatment for your kitchen, there are several options available. What is the size and shape of your window? What is your budget? HGTV gives their tips on choosing the right window treatment.

If you want to liven things up in your kitchen, "consider adding pattern and color, perhaps a fabulous print." Or if you desire a more clean look, a  "neutral, grounding fabric or material" is the way to go. To make a small kitchen look larger, go for light, cool colors, and to help balance a large kitchen, choose dark, warm colors. 

Do you want more privacy in your kitchen? Window treatments with screening materials "let you see out but allow some daylight to pass while blocking views from the outside."

If there a beautiful window in your kitchen that you want to feature? Try a fabric valance to accent the window. Playing around with the balance can also adda unique touch,

Choosing the right window treatment is a small touch that can greatly express your personal style. To read the full HGTV article, click here. 

Cleaning Your Showerhead | New Homes El Paso

When you move into a new home, it is equipped with top quality features. It is always a good idea to take good care of them so they can last you a very long time. When showerheads get dirty with mineral deposits, the water cannot flow evenly. Here are some ways to keep them clean! 

One way is the remove the showerhead and soak it in vinegar. With a new showerhead, it will screw right on to the shower arm. If it is older, it will connect to a ball-shaped swivel end. If you have trouble removing it, a good way to clean it is to slip a rubber band over the top of the showerhead. Fill a plastic bag with white vinegar and slip the top of the band underneath the rubber band. After one hour, remove the bag and run your shower to flush it clean.

For a much deeper clean follow these steps from Better Homes and Gardens

To disconnect the showerhead, unscrew the nut at the shower arm with a wrench, not pliers

"Run a sharp blast of water through the showerhead by holding it upside down underneath a faucet. Your goal is to rinse loosened debris out through the opening that connects to the shower arm."

If there are still mineral deposits, scrub the showerhead with an old toothbrush and vinegar. and then use a toothpick or safety pin to poke out additional deposits. Soak the parts in vinegar overnight to dissolve any remaining deposits. Rinse again.

"First wrap new plumbing tape around the threads of the shower arm to ensure a good seal. Reattach the showerhead to the shower arm using the wrench. Protect the fixture's finish with soft rags or towels while you're working."

Be sure to take good care of all your appliances in your new home. We want your home to accommodate you to the fullest for years and years. If you are looking for a new home or ready to build your custom dream home, give us a call! We want to build for you.

Child Proofing Your New Homes | El Paso Home Builders

One of the many advantages of buying a new home from Pointe Homes is that you know it is safe and uses the top quality materials. If you have a baby or small children, it is important to you take the right steps to child proof your new home so they always stay safe.


Outlet Covers

Use these everywhere in the house! Prevent your child from sticking anything in the outlets.

Cabinet Latches/Locks

Toxic cleaning products should be moved to a high cabinet that a child can not reach. However, if you cannot move them there, a cabinet latch is the perfect solution. 

Safe Window Treatments

Window blinds with cords can be a chocking hazard to young children and pets. Cordless blinds and shutters are a safer alternative.

Check Your House Plants

There are a lot of house plants that are poisonous. Be sure to check all your plants and keep the dangerous ones out of your new home. 

Baby Gates

Baby gates serve several purposes. If you have stairs in your new home, gates will keep your baby away from them. If you have pets, it's good to use gates to keep your child away from the pet food that can be a choking hazard.

Stove Guards and Knob Covers

If a child sees you twisting the stove knob, they'll want to do the same. Make the stove in your new home inaccessible to children with knob covers and guards. 

Avoid Sharp Edges

Coffee tables, hearths, TV stands, and window ledges can be right at eye level for short stacks. Cushion all sharp edges on coffee tables, tv stands, and ledges with corner guards.

Toilet Locks

Toilet locks in the bathroom will prevent accidental drownings and keep your child away from any germs in the water.

Hardwood Floors | New Homes El Paso

Pointe Homes is one of the best home builders in El Paso that will provide you with several feature options for your new home. Hardwood floors are a classic and timeless choice for new homes that can work with both traditional styles and contemporary ones. 

It is also important that the proper care is taken with hardwood flooring. Better Homes and Gardens shared their tips for keeping them looking good! In new homes, the last thing you want is marks all over your new floors. To prevent scratches by "using floor protectors under furniture and by using rugs in play areas to ensure children's toys don't scratch the floor."

For basic weekly cleaning, go over your floors with a vacuum with a floor-brush attachment. For deeper cleanings to remove dirt and grime, "use a wood-cleaning product diluted according to the label instructions. Saturate a sponge or rag mop in the water, then wring it almost dry so it feels only slightly damp to the touch. Damp-mop the floor...and rinse with a clean mop dampened in clear water...Wipe up excess liquid because standing water can damage wood surfaces."
