Forever Sanctuary homes have been cleverly designed to suit your family’s requirements. Aptly named, they are homes that will build family memories and create a true family sanctuary.
As Hotondo Homes’ largest range, it offers countless single and double storey home designs in a variety of sizes. Whether you’re after a coastal, metro or regional design you will find something you love in the Forever Sanctuary Range.
This range focuses on three key areas of the home; the kitchen, alfresco and master bedroom.

The spacious Erskine 240 and the incredible Willowgrove 332 are our top picks from Forever Sanctuary!

Painting the walls a beautiful white, creamy ivory, soft beige or light grey will suit both children and teenagers. If you can’t resist adding a bit of colour, consider a single feature wall which can be changed as the child grows. It is less expensive to repaint one wall, and allows for a little more creativity without costing you a fortune.
Hardwood floors are perfect for children and teenagers alike. It is easy and inexpensive to warm up the room with a lovely rug, which can be purchased in bright, bold colours for kids and then changed to a neutral colour for teenagers.
If you choose carefully, children’s furniture can be used or altered for a teenager. Look for furniture that is sturdy, durable and simple. Bedside tables only require a coat of paint or new handles for an instant update. A cosy mother’s chair will look fresh with new upholstery to create a new reading nook, and lampshades can be switched to more sophisticated colours or shapes.
Replacing the bed however is almost unavoidable. When the time comes, purchase a large, simple frame or even a box spring bed that will remain timeless and can be used by a teenager well into their adult years.
Linen has a shelf-life, so it is the perfect outlet to let your son or daughter have some input into their bedroom without the fear of it being permanent. Colourful bed-spreads and plenty of cushions add character to a room, as does the colour and texture of your curtains which can be picked up fairly cheaply.
Black and white framed photographs which can be changed as the children grow are another fantastic way to decorate the room for the long-term. Frames can also be replaced with posters or framed memorabilia without adding new holes to your wall.
