Colorado Springs Custom Home Design Blog

If you’re trying to decide whether your best option for a new home is to have a custom or semi-custom home built to your specifications, have a production home built, or to choose an existing home from the market, it may help you to consider the pros and cons associated with each of these options.

Obviously, as a leading Colorado Springs luxury homebuilder, we at Bella Vita Custom Homes believe everyone should enjoy the benefits of a having a home that is built especially for them. But we know that there are advantages and disadvantages to each of the options and want you have the information you need to make the right choice at the right time for you and your family. To that end, I’ve listed here some of the advantages and disadvantages of each option listed above.

Our 2015 Parade of Homes submission is coming along great! A lot of hard work has gone into making this home as beautiful as possible. Every detail is important and as a custom home builder, it is our goal to get it done right.

The Colorado Springs Parade of Homes is scheduled this year for August 7th through the 23rd. So save the date and be sure and come by totake a look at this gorgeous home!


Spring has finally arrived to Colorado and soon the mountainsides will be alive with the glorious greens of emerging foliage and the rainbow colors of wildflowers. Even though the snow is most likely not yet over for the season, it’s that time of year when you’ll want to bring a bit of the outdoors in to your Colorado Springs custom home.

We here at Bella Vita Custom Homes know that our customers enjoy fine craftsmanship in everything from their kitchen cabinetry to the artwork they display on their walls, so we think you’ll enjoy these suggestions for bringing a touch of Colorado spring color into your home while supporting local and state craftsmen and artists or nurturing your own creativity.

This home design includes some of our favorite custom home features such as the crow's nest, a "great room" with awesome views of the Rocky Mountains, and many more specialities to come when we make some progress on the interior.

We cannot wait to showcase this home in this year's Parade of Homes for Colorado. From start to finish, we are committed to creating a home that is absolutely stunning. Bella Vita means the Good Life and that's our aim when we commit to creating a completely custom home.

Check our Facebook or blog for regular updates on our Parade of Homes submissions.

Classic style is what will make your luxury custom home appealing for many years to come and help your custom home to retain its value. Still, while fads will come and go, staying on trend with your styling and home features adds a layer of freshness that will help you to get the most enjoyment of your new living space. Plus, being aware of home trends allows you to take advantage of new features and technologies that were not previously thought of or available.

BellissimoWhile building a new home, a lot of people tend to neglect some essential home upgrades that can do more than make their life easier. The amount of money being spent on your new home depends on the choices you make. However, these choices are always changing. While working with a professional home builder in Colorado Springs, you will come to realize that choosing the lowest denominator is never the best way to spend your money. For a healthier return on your investment and maximum functionality, here are some effective upgrades you need to consider.
