The Finishing Touches

Making a House A Home


The process of building your custom home with Ilcor Builders is exciting—from selecting your land to designing your dream floorplan.

Your selection of cabinets, countertops, paint colors or wallpaper, flooring materials, and other design elements come together to showcase your family’s unique style. Whether your family’s style is modern, traditional, or somewhere in-between, the design team a Ilcor Builders can help you select the right design elements that will create the personality of your home.

The right interior design will make your new custom home feel like your personal sanctuary. Your home can be a place where you can relax and connect with loved ones. You design will be completely custom. For some custom home designers this means creating a home design that is serene and spa-like. For others, your home design may be vibrant, comfortable, and inviting. Whatever your family’s personal style, Ilcor Builders can help you realize your dream.


Selecting Your Finishing Touches

The finishing touches that you select are essential for making your home truly yours. This is why it is important for you to partner with a builder that doesn’t limit the finishes that you can use. Many builders will partner with national brand names thus limiting your selections. But Ilcor Builders has no allegiances to brands or suppliers. We will help you select the finishes that fit your style, while staying within your budget. Let’s examine at some of the key decisions the design team at Ilcor Builders will help you make:

Ilcor Builders’ design team will help you select the perfect countertop for your kitchen, bathrooms, bar, or mudroom. Stone countertops wear well, are easy to clean, and require little maintenance. However, if stone countertops are not your particular style, Ilcor Builders’ design team can help you select the right hardwood, concrete, glass, stainless steel or other materials that fits your desire. All your finishes are limited only by your imagination and budget.




Cabinets are not limited to just your kitchen and bathroom. You custom selected cabinets can also be in your wet bar, laundry room, pantry, closets, garage, and media room. With an endless variety of styles, colors, hardware, and finishes, your cabinets are a unique place to express your family’s style.
