We want it to weather our shoes and pets, to bounce back after spilled sodas and crumbled cupcakes, to accent our décor with elegance, and baby our bare toes with comfort. And on top of everything, we want it to last and last!

Finish & Feature Spotlight – The Kitchen

If you’re thinking about building a new Boise area home, it can be a challenge to sift through all the details and decisions that go along with such a big project. Our new blog series, “Finish & Feature Spotlight” is designed to help you answer some of the critical home design questions you’ll encounter along the way! Today we’re shining a light on the kitchen, one of the most important rooms to consider as you plan your new dream home.


Create the family kitchen you’ve always wanted

A kitchen is so much more than just a place to prepare meals – it’s also the emotional center of your home. It’s the hub where you and your kids can connect for a few minutes over breakfast before heading out into the world, and it’s the cozy haven you return to at night as you come together over dinner. It’s a place for laughter and conversation, for projects and crafts, for homework and hobbies and coffee-break chats.  It’s the retreat where friends and family inevitably gather, so it’s easy to see why this space needs to be both practical and beautiful.  Putting careful thought into the features and finishes of this versatile room is paramount, so here are some things to consider.


Consider your cooking needs

Do you love to cook from scratch, or do you do a lot of baking? Do you cook for a large family, or do you often entertain? You’ll want to make sure your new kitchen is scaled to fit those requirements. Look for a kitchen layout that offers ample counter space or one that includes a stand-alone island for additional workspace. Consider appliance options like a double wall-oven that allow you to cook multiple dishes at the same time.  If you have a lot of pots and pans, you may like cabinets with spacious pot drawers. If you have a number of small appliances, you might prefer a butler’s pantry for easy storage.

If ease and convenience are more your style, look for kitchen options that cater to you!  Consider features like Delta’s Touch2O faucet – it lets you turn the kitchen sink on and off with just a tap to the spout – or try an undermount-design sink that makes clean-up a breeze.  A counter with a breakfast bar works great for feeding kids on busy mornings, and a kitchen layout that includes an eating nook is perfect for cozy family dinners or quick snacks.


Consider lighting and flooring

Think about the tasks you’ll be carrying out in your new kitchen and the kinds of lighting that will make them easier. Pendant lights can give beautiful task-illumination to an island workspace or breakfast bar, while under-cabinet lighting can lend a soft glow to kitchen countertops. A 3-light chandelier can offer a welcome warmth to an eating nook. Tour some of our model homes, check out the Coleman Homes Design Gallery LookBook  or visit our Pinterest page to get some ideas about styles you prefer.
Flooring is another important element. You want your new kitchen floor to withstand constant traffic while still making a style statement! Ceramic tile, hardwood, wood laminate, engineered hardwood, and vinyl all have their particular advantages when it comes to maintenance, price and durability, so do some research to determine which one is right for you and your budget.


Consider special features just for you

Sometimes it’s the extras that make all the difference! You might love a giant double pull-out trash-bin for easier kitchen clean-ups, or a plate rack to show off your grandma’s antique china. Maybe you’ve always wanted a wine rack, or a built-in organization station where you could pay bills and post the family schedule.  Keep those “wish list” items in mind as you plan the kitchen in your new home; you might be surprised at how attainable they are, and at how much they could enhance the enjoyment and utility of your new space.

Floorplan Spotlight – Our new Walden plan is better than ever!


You’ll love all the efficient new options in our
welcoming Walden plan

Here at Coleman Homes, we know your input makes all the difference when it comes to creating a home that’s uniquely equipped to meet your family’s needs. Our homeowner families tell us what works, and we listen! That’s why we’re so pleased to present our newly-revised Walden floorplan.

walden 46-01The Walden has long been a favorite from our Woodland Collection, but thanks to great suggestions from families like yours, we’ve adapted the layout to help it fit you even better!

  • The main floor has been reconfigured to make space for a den across from the dining area. The den that was previously located at the back of the home is now a flex-room.
  • We exchanged a formal sitting room for a spacious butler’s pantry in the kitchen, creating plenty of room for storage and stowing small appliances.
  • The powder bathroom has been relocated to the front of the home so we could add a convenient mudroom off the garage.

The new Walden layout is practical, efficient, and super-convenient for today’s busy families, and the benefits don’t stop there! We’ve also added terrific new options that let you personalize the layout to fit your needs. Here are just some of the brand-new choices available:

Master Suite

Accent your Walden with a restful retreat that fits you perfectly, or add a space for houseguests! Now you can choose to have two master suites — perfect for multi-generational households or families who often host overnight guests.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

Our new interior structure options add so much flexibility to The Walden! Need more bedroom space? Exchange the den or the powder room to add a 5th bedroom with bath, or add a 6th and 7th bedroom with a jack-n-jill bathroom in between.


Tailor The Walden’s garage to suit your busy family! There’s a spacious 4- car layout, or a grand RV options.

If you’ve been shopping new homes in the Boise area, we invite you to explore the Walden. Our brand-new revisions make this plan even better than ever!

To see the new Walden yourself, visit our new Timbermist community in Kuna.  There you’ll find a beautifully-decorated Walden model, ready for you to explore. Models are open daily from 11AM to 7PM, and earlier times by special appointment.  For more information or to schedule a tour, contact our Sales Team of Experts today!
