Quick tips for choosing the right home design

 Keep your family’s lifestyle and needs front of mind.

There’s a lot to consider when you begin narrowing down home designs and sifting through interior design inspiration. You’ll want to ensure that your chosen floor plan will speak to the way you like to live, not just now, but 10-20 years into the future. We find it helpful to look at plans with a list of ‘must-haves’ and ‘nice to haves’ in mind, as this will help you create a shortlist of your best options.

Knockdown and rebuild isn't just a process; it's a transformative journey towards creating the home of your dreams in the neighbourhood you love

Define Your Needs and Lifestyle:

Before delving into design options, take the time to reflect on your current lifestyle and future needs. Consider factors such as family size, desired living spaces, entertaining habits, and any specific requirements like home offices or outdoor areas. Understanding how you use your home will guide you towards a design that complements your lifestyle seamlessly.

Whether you’re in need of extra bedrooms for growing teenagers, a fully equipped guest suite for elderly relatives, modern bathrooms and ensuites, or a combination of all three plus more, our New Home Specialists will listen to your needs, dreams and everything in between to find the right fit.

Think about the heart of your home

Given that the kitchen serves as one of the busiest hubs within the home, there are numerous factors to take into account. Are you seeking a direct line of sight to the backyard to monitor young children or grandchildren? Would a spacious breakfast bar-style island be ideal for hectic mornings and relaxed evenings spent enjoying a glass of wine? Whatever your requirements are, we'll work with you to ensure you have the optimal layout and features to cater to your daily needs.

Don't forget orientation

You want a home that maximises sunlight in the commonly used areas, like your living and kitchen. Depending on the position of your block, our New Home Specialist will work with you to design a home that takes advantage of the natural elements, while considering privacy and maximising your energy efficiency in the process.

Prioritise Functionality

While functionality is equally crucial. Our collaborative process involves delving into your current needs and anticipating future ones. For instance, if you have young children, we'll explore multipurpose rooms that can evolve alongside your family's changing requirements. We prioritise practical aspects like room layout, seamless flow between spaces, smart storage solutions, and ample natural light. Our aim is to select designs that optimize usability, enriching your daily life while ensuring that your new home is both functional and visually appealing.
