Display homes are a great building inspiration hub that can inspire you when finding ideas for your new home build. There is no better way to really get a feel for the spaces, layouts and designs that you have seen online.
Seeing a house plan online or on paper is useful for working out the layout you like, but being able to experience exactly how big the rooms will look and feel by walking through your chosen design is priceless.
Take your time
Set aside some time that you can dedicate to visiting display homes; locations and opening times can be found here. Allow yourself plenty of time at each display home – choosing the layout of your future home shouldn’t be a rushed decision.
Walking through a display is the perfect opportunity to check out what you can expect, and is also a great time to pay attention to the little things that will set a quality builder apart from the crowd. Look at the quality of the cabinetry, the brands used for tapware and appliances, and the smaller details that show the home will be finished to the highest standard.
Use your phone to take plenty of photos
Don’t forget to take lots of pictures on your phone! There is a lot to take in and this is the best way to keep a record of everything. It is very handy for keeping track of which features you liked, and will be useful to refer to at your Prestart meeting.
Visiting display homes is also a good chance to get ideas on decor and interior design tips for your future home, so we recommend taking photos of any colour schemes, furniture or fittings that catch your eye.
Brochures can also be another building inspiration hub. Make sure you get brochures for the display homes you like, as well as any floor plans that interest you. A Momu consultant can customise your home design at no extra cost, so it pays to spend the time looking over plans and deciding what you want.
Being able to customise your plan means that you can bring together all the things you like from different designs into one amazing home, and leave out all the aspects that don’t suit you. Your family and lifestyle are unique, so your home should be tailored to suit your individual needs and wants.
Use your time at the displays to ask all of your questions, this is a great time to get informed. If there is anything at all you are not sure of, your Momu consultant will be able to help.
