In addition to hundreds of options for everything from fixtures to flooring to finishes, Richmond American’s Home Gallery™ design centers afford homebuyers the opportunity to add a variety of home technologies that make life more convenient and more enjoyable. Here are six of the options we offer at select communities:

Home theater

Who doesn’t love a good movie night? By having a home theater setup in your basement or living room, you can enjoy your favorite flicks in style and with the utmost comfort! Home theater prewiring and surround sound options are available at most Richmond American communities.

Central vacuum

Nobody likes vacuuming, but with a built-in system and strategically placed inlets throughout the home it can be as painless as possible. In addition to saving time (and aggravation) dealing with clunky chords and bags, there may also be health benefits to having a central vacuum. They generally do not recirculate exhaust air back into the space being cleaned which cuts down on allergens and dust particles in the air.

Security system

You can’t put a price on peace of mind, especially when it comes to safeguarding your family. More sophisticated than traditional burglar alarms, modern security systems can help you keep an eye on your home when you’re out of town, monitor various rooms and activate sensors or lights—all via convenient apps on your tablet or smartphone!

Programmable thermostat

At Richmond American, energy efficiency is a priority. That’s why we’re proud to offer thermostats that can help better control the temperature in your home, potentially reducing utility bills in addition to more efficiently regulating your energy usage.

Electric vehicle charging stations

Speaking of being environmentally conscious, the increased prevalence of electric vehicles nationwide has pushed EV charging stations higher on homebuyers’ wish lists. If you have an EV, or you’re considering buying one in the future, you’ll be glad to know charging stations are just one of many ways you can personalize your garage. This option is now available in all the areas we build.

Solar power systems

Another great way to help the environment while also potentially easing the burden on your energy bills is by harnessing the natural power of the sun. Utilizing solar power is an increasingly popular option for homebuyers, and a key component of Richmond American’s Homes for Today and Tomorrow program. Depending on where you build, you may have the option to buy or lease and install a solar power system through one of our approved vendors or choose a concealed conduit, so your home is ready for a future system.*
