When working out exactly what you want from your new home, start out with a piece of paper and a pencil. Sketch your ideas and vision; make lists of what your new home has to have and what
you definitely don’t want. When you meet with our expert staff, having a clear idea of what you want will make the process a lot easier.
Style Of House
Most people will already have an idea of what they want their new home to look like, so choosing the style first should be easy. Do you prefer a more traditional style or modern? What home style will suit your interior style and furniture the best? What house style will hold its value the best in your suburb?
Number Of Bedrooms
It might seem like a pretty straight forward question, but stop and really think about it. What might be perfect for you now, may not work in the future. If you think you may eventually require an extra bedroom, then prepare for that now.
Master Bedroom Suite
Master Bedroom Suites today are like an apartment inside a house, they are so much bigger than they used to be. If you get the layout and style right, the master suite will increase the value of your home. What’s more important than resale value though, is ensuring the master suite is functional and attractive to you now. Make sure you allow for a large bathroom, and a spacious walk in wardrobe.
Decide if you want any rooms added to your house, think about your lifestyle and family’s needs. You might love cooking and decide a house design with a Scullery is a good option. Maybe you have kids and need an activity room dedicated to them and their toys. If you work from home then an office may be essential.
This is a big one, a good kitchen can make or break a home. You will need to ensure the layout is functional, has enough bench space and that there is plenty of storage. The kitchen is often the hub of the home, so making sure it is a good size and looks amazing is also important.
You obviously want your new home to look stylish, but functionality is just as important. You want to ensure your home is going to suit your family and lifestyle for many years to come, moving in and finding out the flow of the house is all wrong would be a nightmare. Make sure your kitchen and dining room are close together and try and situate your laundry away from bedrooms or main living areas. Think back over previous homes you have lived in, what worked for you and what didn’t?
