Advice • Tips • Inspiration

Buying a smaller plot doesn’t have to be the end of your home design dreams. While we understand that a larger block may be a more attractive venture, smaller options have just as much charm and potential.

At Hotondo Homes, we see the value in every block size and are here to show you how to get the best results, no matter the dimensions. Read on to discover the many ways you can optimise your new-found space to get the very best for your new home build.

Find the appropriate home design plan

The first step in any home design journey is to find the best plan for your project, and small blocks are no different. When selecting your design plan you want to make sure it best fits your lifestyle, as well as your block’s dimensions. 

Hotondo Homes is proud to provide home design plans to suit a variety of block sizes, including split-level options, so you can find a solution that best suits you, without compromising on style. With practical, space-saving designs like the Aon 132, the highly functional Cascade 121, and the versatile Erskine 225, you’re sure to find the right plan for your project.

With Hotondo Homes, finding a plan that makes the most of your space has never been easier.

Cultivate a brighter space with an open-plan design

Open-plan living provides a number of notable benefits when it comes to the inner workings of home life and design. Incorporating an open-plan for your home’s communal areas is the key to creating a space that feels larger than it really is. 

When dealing with a smaller block, an open-plan design increases airflow in a reduced space and allows for better flow between the various rooms in your home. Our Tasman 80 floorplan is cleverly designed with this in mind, featuring an integrated dining and living space.

As well as allowing greater ease of access an open floor plan optimises your space, giving the illusion of a wider, lighter space. When creating a brighter space for you and your family, an open-plan design also facilitates the interior design process. With a wider, unobstructed surface to cover, arranging any home decor or furniture is a breeze.

Scope out space-saving solutions

Subtle storage options

Larger homes often harbour a lot of unused space. When it comes to designing for a smaller space, optimising a given area for storage could make all the difference. Consolidating your home design with some built-in storage solutions saves on space, creating a clean and seamless feel within your home.

Multi-purpose rooms for multi-faceted living

No two lifestyles are ever quite the same, and when it comes to designing homes, we want to make sure we’re catering to your every day needs. That’s why we believe in designing a room to cater to different functions. Not only are multi-purpose rooms ideal when it comes to saving on valuable space, but they also make that space accessible, however you may need to use it.

If you’re in need of a workspace, for example, consider transforming a study into a home office nook, so you can seamlessly transition between home and work life without having to compromise on space. Alternatively, a study nook in the open-plan area off the kitchen will help you stay organised, space in the living area for the kids to play while you supervise is perfect for growing families, and a dining space that can entertain family and friends will serve you well for years to come.

Designing for you, with you

Our teams at Hotondo Homes are here to provide you with the best advice when it comes to building your dream home. Our extensive range of home design plans can cater to any size block and, most importantly, can be modified to fit your needs.
