    Study

    Many new homes being built now are cleverly designed to include either a study nook or a separate study, which is a helpful addition to any home.

    Many new home designs focus on open-plan living to suit family lifestyles, but all homes still need to include storage to keep everyday living organised and easy. The inclusion of a butler’s pantry in your home will give you a much needed second utility and storage space next to the kitchen area that also provides […]

While some people choose to keep this space as a formal lounge or sitting area, many people are embracing the trend of an in-home media room […]

    Reverse Living

    Reverse living is a way of designing a home with the kitchen, living, and dining areas upstairs, and the bedrooms downstairs. Essentially, the ground floor of a traditional home design is swapped with the upstairs so the layout is reversed. This trend originated in Scandinavia, but more Australians are embracing the trend as it’s perfectly […]
