Persimmon Homes

Customising your new home

One of the great benefits of buying new is that you can fully customise your Persimmon home using our Finishing Touches range. Here’s some style inspiration for making your home feel like you.

A new home is so many things – a new community, a place to make memories, and a blank canvas to inject your own personality into. When you buy a Persimmon home, our Finishing Touches will give you a head start on that last one. Using our range of optional finishes, from cupboards to carpeting, you can create a home that feels like yours from the minute you move in.

Want a glimpse of what you could be choosing? Here’s some style inspo using our Finishing Touches range.


When it comes to kitchens, the options are endless. Our Finishing Touches upgrades include a huge range of cabinetry, so whether you’re into minimalist handleless cupboards or timeless Shaker style, there’s something to suit you. Our Pinterest-worthy colourways include bright white, traditional creams and striking indigos, while durable quartz worktops are also available in a range of shades. You can choose from high-spec appliances that will help you cook up a feast, sinks to suit your needs, and taps, tiles and handles to create a finished look that will deliver a wow-factor.

Get the look: Strike the perfect balance of traditional and modern by pairing Shaker style cabinetry with crisp white quartz countertops. An undermounted sink means the clean lines of the surfaces are uninterrupted, while brass-effect handles add a touch of industrial luxe.


Your bathroom should be your sanctuary, and our great choice of upgrades means you’ll be able to create your ideal space to unwind. For tiling, you have the choice of our standard tiles or upgraded tiles in a range of sizes and styles, in either a standard layout, half height or full-height. You can elevate your morning routine with a choice of shower styles from leading brand Mira, including electric showers, mixer showers and even a digital smart shower. All that remains is to add a cosy towel radiator in a colour of your choice.

Get the look: Who said bathrooms have to be boring? Opting for large tiles in a neutral colour provides a clean foundation for the room, ideal if you want to add a pop of personality with wallpaper and accessories.

Home office

It looks like working from home is here to stay, so if you’re looking to perfect your home office set up and have a room available in your new Persimmon home, it’s definitely worth taking advantage of our range of fitted furniture for home offices. Designed to suit you and your new home, our Home Study range is designed to work with your space, running along one wall or in an L shape depending on the room size. With cupboards in a range of colours and styles, and with additional options for electrical points, you can tailor your working surroundings to suit you.

Get the look: The clean lines of our Contemporary Study are softened with wood tones, along with artworks and those all-important plants to add a personal touch and bring some life to the space.


What’s the one thing a home can never have too much of? Storage! Fortunately you won’t have to compromise in your new Persimmon home, thanks to the choice of stylish fitted wardrobes available as Finishing Touches upgrades. If you like the look of sliding doors, paint-effect panels in a solid colour can achieve the same effect as a feature wall, sleek glass panels add a touch of luxury, and sliding mirrored panels are a fantastic way to bring more light into a room. Alternatively, traditional hinged doors achieve a classic bespoke look.

Get the look: A mirrored wardrobe is a great way to maximise your décor theme, like this horizontal panelling which elongates the room – whilst providing neat and tidy storage.

Fixtures and fittings

Customising your home isn’t just about making it look beautiful – it’s also about those little practical additions that can make a huge difference to everyday life. Extra sockets and switches, low-energy LED downlighters and under cabinet lighting are all simple ways to elevate your space so that it works best for you. Additional options of vertical radiators and digital heating controls are a contemporary way of keeping your home cosy, and you can also opt for outdoor features such as lighting, external sockets, security lamps and garden taps to maximise convenience and safety.

Get the look: Adding a Merlo radiator is a great way to keep your home cosy while making a striking style statement. Sleek and eyecatching, they add a contemporary flair to any room.
