Design Bites are new monthly, bite-sized presentations that pack a punch in content, without bogging down your calendar. In 15 minutes — the time it takes to enjoy your morning coffee — speakers share design ideas, how-tos, trends and more.

On the third Thursday of each month at 2 p.m. ET, Design Bites will cover the hottest topics — including kitchens, small spaces and storage solutions, curb appeal, floor plans and more.

The next webinar will focus on how to make a positive impression on prospective buyers:

First Impressions Sell: Floor Plans, Elevations and Memory Points
Thursday, Jan. 21, at 2 p.m. ET

It can take 10 years to design and build a home, but only 10 seconds to make a positive (or negative) impression on a buyer. This Design Bite covers the most important details in triggering a positive buyer response. Learn how design details can be your differential in making the sale and how different approaches to the design/build/sale process can cater to different buyer needs. You’ll also learn about the key areas of focus in a plan and elevation for a potential buyer, positioning your homes to feel great on a walkthrough, and live even better.
