When you buy a new home from Shodeen Residential, you can count on simple one-stop shopping for each of these significant selections, thanks to the builder's convenient design center located off North Mill Creek Drive within the heart of Mill Creek, a master-planned golf course community in Geneva featuring semi-custom single-family homes.

"We provide one large, central location to better serve our homeowners who need to select their colors, masonry, hardware, trim, cabinets, tile and other base or upgraded choices prior to moving in their new home," said Diane Durpetti, manager of Shodeen's design center, which also serves buyers who purchase at Reston Ponds, Shodeen's newest community of single-family residences in Sycamore.

The well-stocked and spacious design center "brings all of the exterior and interior products, styles and materials together under one roof, with ample room for floor and wall displays, samples and swatches, she added.

"You can meet with me as many times as needed for up to six hours worth of visits, which provides plenty of time to narrow down your choices," said Durpetti, who has staffed the design center for more than 12 years and is valued by customers for her designing/decorating expertise.

"Our center provides a wide range of products and upgrades by quality manufacturers, including faucets by Moen, portico carpeting by Mohawk, Aristokraft or Pyramid cabinetry, all types of granite, laminate, Corian and Zodiaq countertops, a wealth of prefinished wood flooring options and much more," said Durpetti.
