Spain Show homes
- Taylor Wimpey España opens new show apartments in Costa Blanca, Costa del Sol and Mallorca (Spain).
- Buyers keen to visit developments in person, after restrictions of past 2.5 years
- Show home visitors asking about everything from customization to inclusion of furniture
Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España has announced the opening of four new show homes at developments in the Costa Blanca, Costa del Sol and Mallorca. Having sold homes in Spanish coastal areas for nearly 65 years, the company has plenty of insights to share when it comes to what makes a good show home.
“Creating a show home isn’t just about picking furniture that fits. It’s about creating a sense of the development – of representing the essence of the lifestyle that’s on offer. Visitors need to get a feel for the development and how it would suit them. That takes a lot of careful thought.”
Delivering a winning show home is also about creating precisely that – a ‘home’. According to interior design firm Pablo Maestre, that means creating comfortable, quiet and relaxed spaces in which people can feel at home. Knowing who will visit the show home is key to that:
“We keep the show home’s target viewers firmly in mind, taking into account factors such as age and nationality. These are important considerations when dressing a show home, as they can make a fundamental difference to the style and materials used.”
Taylor Wimpey’s new show homes have been developed to express the character of each individual development. Essential in Jávea, Costa Blanca, for example, sits within the heart of the town, with the beaches and marina just a 15-minute stroll away. The interior design of the show home reflects this, with sleek, contemporary furnishings paired with natural materials and muted, elegant colours.
At The Crest in Benahavis on the Costa deal Sol, meanwhile, the stunning natural views have influenced the show apartment’s design, which features a rich variety of natural textures and tones. The greens, browns and creams blend beautifully with the surrounding foliage, the greenery of the Westin La Quinta golf resort and the views of the Sierra Blanca mountains.
