Preparing For Your
Design Center Appointment

Homeowners Only to Design Center Appointments

Homebuyers Only

We love kiddos, but this appointment takes longer than what their patience will allow.

Only the buyers of the home should plan on attending.  Because of COVID-19 restrictions, we unfortunately must limit this appointment to the home buyers, one realtor, and one outside designer (if hiring your own).

*Prior to your appointment, attend one of the weekly Zoom design previews. Ask your sales manager for more details.

Take a tour through our option catalog. This series specific book includes a sampling of the options available for your new home.

Determine Budget

Determine Budget

Understand what your budget is so your designer can get the biggest bang for your buck.

Review Floorplan

Take some time to understand the included features of your new home. Walk the model home with your sales manager to have an understanding of the design options.

Collect Inspiration

Collect Inspiration

Bring Photos or small samples of your favorite items that will be moving from your old home to your new home (i.e. pillows, patterns, fabrics, photos of art/furniture).

The more inspiration you have, the easier selecting options will become.



Bring your notes  of where you want your additional outlets, plans for furniture placement, etc. 

Don’t forget to use your most valuable tool – our model homes and communities! Jot down addresses of your favorite exteriors.

Be Confident

Be Confident

It is natural to second-guess some of your decisions. When your appointment is over, be confident in the selections you have made and be ready to watch the building process come together!

Our Team

Meet Our Talented Designers

Lauren Keith

Design Center Manager, Design Coordinator

As both the Design Center Manager and a Design Consultant with Elite Homes since 2015, I have had the privilege of working directly with our buyers, learning their preferences, and discovering each homebuyer’s unique design taste. I enjoy using this information to tailor the design process to the specific needs of my customers, while creating a home as unique as they are. By partnering with local vendors, we ensure that our design offerings are always up to date, allowing you to create a home that is both timeless and trendy. My favorite place to begin the design process is at the heart of the home, the kitchen, working outwards to the public areas and then to the secondary spaces to maintain a nice flow throughout the home. I aim to help you create a forever home that captures your vision and is both beautiful and functional! My husband and I moved to Louisville, after living in Atlanta, to be closer to family and we have absolutely fell in love with this city. We enjoy exploring the city, trying new restaurants, and going to parks with our two dogs.

Kelly Kirkpatrick

Design Center Consultant

As a design consultant, I work alongside our vendors and trades to turn a vision into reality in their new Elite or Arbor home. Our design process makes the building experience unforgettable, and I enjoy working through every fine detail with each buyer while catering to different needs and wants. I find my passion for my job in helping our buyers in creating a well designed space where they will make many memories with their loved ones. Here at the design center we turn a house into a home.

I grew up in Louisville Kentucky and received my bachelors of Arts in Interior Design from Sullivan University. In my spare time, I love hanging out with my family, including my nephew Jude, and my two orange tabbies, Colby and Cheddar. I enjoy riding my bike at the Parklands and I’m working on my green thumb, but haven’t mastered keeping all of the plants alive, just yet! I also like to explore my creative side in the kitchen, cooking hello fresh meals and trying out new recipes. I look forward to helping you design your dream home.
