Design Studio


Our fully integrated in-house Design Studio was the first of its kind in the province. We know that building a home is one thing, but ensuring that it reflects your taste and priorities is another. The world of design is a sea of choices and we help you navigate through them to arrive at the right design solutions. We walk you through our modern Design Studio and help you choose from a wide range of quality options for everything from cabinetry to flooring, doors to fixtures – and if we don’t have it in house, we can get it for you. We help you modify choices over the life of the project. When you walk into your new home, you will be assured that everything comes together beautifully and on budget.

Our Expertise

To ensure the integrity of the design process, Karwood has built a team of design experts like no other in the province, including award-winning architect Colette Nap, experienced architectural technologists and a Design Studio coordinator. Karwood is the only builder in Newfoundland and Labrador that can offer this expertise all in-house and while working cohesively to ensure that your vision for your home becomes a reality.

Our Process

Once you’ve committed to building a Karwood home, your design journey begins. Our qualified team members are here to guide you through the design and construction process, handling your project from concept through completion. This way, you avoid the confusion and time spent running around town making selections. We help you evaluate your options, with the aid of many samples and materials on display — offering unlimited shopping under one roof. During construction, if you request changes, these are documented, signed and coordinated in the Design Studio and all parties receive timely notifications. Once you make a decision, the price never changes.

Quality Options

At Karwood, we are all about quality, and this extends to utilizing the products and expertise of time-tested companies known for both reliability and innovative solutions. These include the attractive and energy-saving solutions of Atlantic Windows and Doors, the practical artistry of Nuway Kitchens, the beautiful stone finishes provided by Versatile Stones and the space organization expertise of Creative Closets. Our list is long and encompasses every aspect of the design and build process from exterior materials to cabinetry, flooring and fixtures.
