Our state of the art FLATO Décor Centre showcases and displays our features and finishes, allowing you to touch and feel your personal selections. Our friendly and experienced FLATO Décor Consultants will guide you through your appointments to make sure your selections reflect your personal taste and the final look you envision.
Phase ONE – Structural/Exterior Selection
During the initial phase of you Décor selection, you will have the options to choose your exterior colour package, this may be conducted virtually. You will be able to view our selection of brick/stone, roof, window, soffit, and several other combinations we have to offer. From our selection, you will choose your top 3 preferences of exterior finishes (these packages are preapproved by Architectural Control). Following this selection, you will be able to review the layout of your floorplan – with the option to make minor structural revisions to the original floor plan, in order to customize it specifically for you. You will also have other options to upgrade your structural features – including increasing your basement window size, adding rough ins (laundry or washroom), and adding gas or waterlines.
Phase TWO – Décor Appointment
Following your structural appointment, your Flato Décor Consultant will schedule your interior décor appointment; this can take up to two meetings (as required). During your appointment, you will select all of your interior finishes from top to bottom. This includes any basement finishes, kitchen layout, cabinetry, countertop, appliance selection, main floor hardwood/tile selection, staircase and railings, second floor and ensuite finishes and any additional upgrades. Upgrades can consist of walk-in shower glass enclosures, tile upgrades, plumbing fixtures, electrical locations, pot lights, light valances and exterior lighting.
This complete process is held one-on-one with your Flato Décor Consultant and in multiple appointments so you have the opportunity to go through selections thoroughly, to ensure you are completely satisfied and that your Flato Home is your dream home.

CAN I ADD OR DELETE AN ITEM AFTER I COMPLETE MY FINAL APPOINTMENT WITH MY DECOR CONSULTANT?
Once a Décor selection is completed with FLATO we quickly proceed on to the next stage in the construction process. At FLATO we strive to meet our building schedules, so we refrain from making any changes once the selection is finalized. However, if construction has not yet started, we are willing to accommodate small changes aside from structural items within two weeks of finalizing. Any changes and/or cancellations made after the finalization of the décor agreement and/or the colour chart will be charged a fee of $750.00 per item plus a 10% restocking fee.
WHY DO UPGRADES COST MORE THAN AT THE LOCAL HOME RENOVATION STORE?
Upgrades completed by FLATO Developments are supplied and installed when it is time to move into your new home. This makes it so easy and convenient for our purchasers to achieve their dream home without having to go through the headache of sourcing and coordination of installation on their own afterwards. In addition, upgrades purchased are covered by the Home Tarion Warranty, and in some cases an extended manufacturers warranty.
CAN I CHANGE MY EXTERIOR COLOUR PACKAGE? CAN I GET A DIFFERENT COLOUR FOR MY FRONT DOOR?
All exterior colour packages are pre-determined and pre-approved by architectural control, unfortunately FLATO is limited to stay within those guidelines. Depending on the project, once the purchaser selects their preferences for exterior this is sent to architectural control for approval therefore no changes can be made after the selection has been made.
FLATO Developments has expanded into our very own home goods online retail store, FLATOHOME.com. This endeavor has been several years in the making. We are constantly striving to give our purchasers the most out of the homebuying process, FLATO now offers a one stop shop for families and their home product needs even after they have moved into their homes.
