The greatest thing about building your home from the ground up is the choice you get to have about how to arrange each space in your home. If you need extra storage you can maximise on vertical space and have more cabinets installed to house all your belongings. You can work with your builder to modify the ceiling height in your open-plan area to include raked ceilings to add space for lots of natural light to flood in. Your builder will be able to explain what additional costs you may incur to make changes like this to your home design so that it’s exactly what you and your family want. There really are so many wonderful ideas for making your home truly you. 

Make your home truly you with all the finishing touches

Once you’ve chosen your home design, you’ll be able to complete your colour selections, choosing the colours and finishes that reflect your personal preferences for colour palettes, materials and styles. In our showrooms, you’ll work with our selection staff member and be shown a range of samples from our preferred suppliers to help pull together a cohesive look and feel for your new home, both inside and out.

Outside of the realm of what you can choose through Hotondo Homes are lots of finishing touches you can include once you have the keys to your new home, including soft furnishings like rugs, bed linen, cushions, curtains, and throw blankets which will all help your home feel cosy, while adding a flair of your personal style. Seek out unique pieces of vintage or modern furniture that suits your taste to incorporate as statement pieces of decor that will complement the overall aesthetic theme and your home will be a true representation of your style.

Some bold choices to show your personal style at home can include things like artwork or sculptures that make a statement or beautiful accent furniture that will be a centrepiece of the room. Shutters, blinds and curtains can make a room feel modern or softly textured depending on what you choose, and they are a really versatile and effective way to show personality from room to room.
