Custom Homes Made for Summer

Summer is almost here! But since we have seen warm weather for a while now, if you have a patio, I'm sure you have already spend many days and nights relaxing there.

We have plenty of move-in ready homes that have patios waiting for you! But if you have some great ideas of a patio unique to you, Pointe Homes can build you a custom home from scratch. There are so many ways you can create the perfect patio space perfect for you and your family.

Though we see a lot of patios on concrete, it is not the only option. Adding beautiful tile to your outdoor space can continue the flow from your home interior and add some color. You can even enclose it with a metal grate on top to give you some privacy but still give you some sunlight or moonlight on those amazing summer nights.

And speaking of nights, we can build you a fireplace to add heat and ambience on chilly nights. And since this is El Paso, you'll find yourself enjoying your patio all year round!

There are so many ways to customize your home and patio. Come share your ideas with us and we can build your new custom home!

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!

Relaxing Atmospheres for Your Bathroom

Home Safety Tips for the Winter

We are very fortunate that our snow in El Paso only lasted a couple of days and was not too dangerous. However, if you know a bad storm is approaching, there are a few things you can do around your home to prepare for a power outage. House Beautiful gives their tips:

Prepare Your Emergency Kit
No matter where you live, it's good to have an emergency kit prepared in your home. It should have several items, including "a hand-crank or battery-powered radio, flashlights, a first aid kit (with gauze, tape, bandages, antibiotic ointment, aspirin, a blanket, non-latex gloves, scissors, hydrocortisone, thermometer, tweezers, and an instant cold compress), extra batteries, a whistle, hand sanitizer, garbage bags, and a tool kit.

Fill Up Your Car
It's safer to NOT drive during a storm, but in case you do, make sure to fill your car prior to the storm. And, always carry an emergency kit for your vehicle.

Stock Up on Food and Water
House Beautiful suggests "stocking up with enough water for three days — one gallon of water per person per day. You'll also need food for at least three days and a can opener. "

Fill Your Tub
In case you water gets shut off, you can skip the shower, but use water from the tub to keep filling the toilet. 

Keep the Refrigerator and Freezer Closed
To keep your food lasting longer, keep the doors closed. Food can be safe up to four hours without the electricity. However, after the storm, be sure to toss "any perishable foods (like meat, poultry, fish, eggs, dairy and leftovers) that have been above 40 degrees for over two hours."

Create Relaxing Rooms in Your New Home

Your new home should always accommodate everything that is important to you. While your living room can be a lively place for hanging with the family, the bathroom can be a relaxing environment for a long soak in the tub.

If you are building a new custom home, there are several design tips you can follow to make sure you build the perfect relaxing setting. Choosing a neutral palette for the bathroom is a big step for creating a soothing atmosphere. Consider such palettes when choosing your paint color and bathroom tile. 

Natural materials, such as stone tile, pebbled walls and floors, and wooden vanities give the bathroom a very organic and spa-like touch to your bathroom. Also, the more natural light you have in the bathroom of your new home, the better. But if there is little light in the bathroom, consider painting your walls white. Paired with light colored floors, like bamboo flooring, creates a natural light effect. And if you love taking long soaks in the evening, install a dimmer for a low-light, tranquil environment.

It's vital that your new home now has the features you need as your get older.  As time proceeds, you can always make changes to your home, but the more features it initially has, the better! 

    If your home is built with universal design, it is inherently accessible to the elderly, people with disabilities, and those without. Universal Design focuses on function and style for everyone. This includes single-story floor plans, wider doorways and hallways, step-free entries, and counters at the right level that that are easy to grab.

    Ceramic Tile Care in New Homes

    Ceramic tile in new homes adds a a beautiful touch. Plus, it is easy to maintain and keep it looking new with the right steps!

    Care and Maintenance
    Ceramic tile is generally easy to maintain. Follow these care and maintenance suggestions to help keep it looking new.

    General Maintenance
    Before giving the tile a good cleaning, be sure to sweep or vacuum the floor. However, never use a vacuum with a beater bar or power rotary brush head as these can damage the surface. Protective mats at all exterior-to-interior entrances to tile floors helps prevent dirt from getting in the home. Finally, putting protective pads on your furniture bottoms to help prevent scratching the tile.

    Grout Care
    Grout between ceramic tiles can be cleaned with a brush and a mild cleanser. Also, a grout sealer can be used to make the grout more resistant to stains. But be aware that some can discolor the grout.

    To Care for the Tile
    After sweeping or vacuuming, wipe the tile with a moist cloth and wet mop it occasionally. Be sure to use a non-oil-based household cleaner that’s compatible with cement grouts. And be sure to never use cleaners contain acids or ammonia. Cleaners with acid will damage the grout and tile glazing, and ammonia cleaners might discolor the grout.

    At Pointe Homes, we make sure to use the top quality materials in your new home and we strive to provide you with the best workmanship. But after we have built your home, it's important to take good care of it and maintain it so it will last you a long time!

    Sleep Well in Your Bedroom | New Homes El Paso

    Because we sleep about a third of our day and spend so much time in our bedrooms, it's important that you take the right steps to make ensure a good night's sleep. Follow these tips in the bedroom of your new home.

    • Rotate you mattress every three months to even it out and to properly support your back. And though we may be greta at cleaning our sheets and pillowcases, don't forget about your bed. Clean it every two months by sprinkling baking soda over it, wait 15 minutes, and vacuum it.
    • Room temperatures of 65 degree ensure a good night's sleep and even have calorie-burning health benefits. So be sure to turn down the thermostat in your new home or install a ceiling fan. 
    • Soothing colors like blues, greens, and grays help you sleep better as opposed to brighter colors like red or orange. Choose paint that has low or no VOCs (volatile organic compounds). These can cause headaches and dizziness. 
    • Don't snooze your alarm. You mind gets confused and can make you feel worse throughout the day. Try setting your alarm somewhere where you need to get up to turn it off. Be sure to get up the first time it rings, and you'll have more energy throughout the day.
    • Light that sneaks in through the windows at night in your home can disturb our sleep. Choose blackout curtains to help you sleep through the night. When your alarm wakes, open the windows to let sunlight in or step outside. 
    • Avoid using computers, phones, and tablets one hour before bedtime. All these devices release blue light which can interfere with our circadian rhythm and our sleep.
    • Use room sprays or candles that have soothing scents like lavender or vanilla to relax your before bedtime. 

    You want to feel comfortable in your new home. So follow these steps to make sure your are sleeping well and taking care of yourself!

    Mixing Tile in New Homes | El Paso Home Builders

    Since tile comes in all different colors, styles, material, and shapes, it's important to consider a few things before buying tile for your new home. Houzz gives their tips on mixing and matching tile.

    Tile that has a busy pattern should be used sparingly. "Use small statement tiles, such as these oblong mosaics, to create a feature on a backsplash or another small area rather than across an entire room. "

    In a small space in your home, such as the bathroom, you can definitely mix a few tile patterns. Just be sure to mix both small and large patterns to help create a balance. Also, remember that it is a good idea to mix shapes and patterns, and not color. A dark grey grout in between tile will be visually pleasing. 

    Have you considered stone for your new home? It looks beautiful! For appeal, it's best to treat the stone as a neutral. " To soften the graphic grout lines as well as to create a cohesive design, pair them with natural gray stone, which adds visual interest with a neutral pattern that doesn’t try to compete."

    When you're out looking for tile for your new home, be sure to take home samples first. You'll get a better feel for how it will end up looking, and you can experiment with how different tiles work together. 

    As one of the top home builders in El Paso, Pointe Homes understands how important design details are to you. We offer a features list that can be modified so that you are completely happy in your new home!

    Choosing a Faucet in New Homes | El Paso

    Faucets are offered in several styles, finishes, and uses. It's important that ones in your home reflect your style and accommodate your needs. But before choosing one, there are several factors to consider. HGTV discusses several tips.

    For example, "If you're retrofitting a new faucet to an existing sink or buying a complete sink ensemble, be sure to match the type of faucet to the hole openings in your sink." 

    And when it comes to finishes, several options are available for affordable prices. "Thanks to modern protective clear-coat sealers, even not-so-expensive faucets can boast of lifetime warranties for their finishes." And one good thing to keep in mind is to "Coordinate all your finishes in each bathroom so that your hard surfaces—including towel bars, lighting fixtures and door hardware—have the same finish."

    Today, there are several technological options we can choose from. There are sanitizing faucets that inject streams of ozone into the water to kill germs. Another sanitizing option that will save you water is a motion-activated faucet.

    If there are certain features you are interested in for your new home, let us know. We can help you design the perfect dream home!
