When it comes to making your dream home a reality, we know that the best way to enjoy that dream for longer is by having a home full of functional features that make every day living all the more enjoyable.
With that in mind, be sure to include these top 5 features in your 2021 home and you’re set to fall in love with your space every time you walk into it.
There’s nothing more powerful to set the mood in a space than the right lighting. Designer lighting can make all the difference to any room when harnessed with the right technology. Dimming LED lights can create incredible ambience in a dining setting while carefully thought out strip lighting in a bathroom can illuminate the area to avoid night time stumbles.
Be sure to consider the best in lighting design for each room to truly make the most of the space.
A large island bench for your kitchen
Whether you’re big on entertaining or fancy yourself a bit of a Masterchef come dinner time, no kitchen is truly complete without a large island bench. Not only does it give you plenty of practical space to prepare your meals but a large bench can create an instant sense of luxury that’s sure to make your kitchen your favourite place in the home.
Whether you end up with a marble or wooden topped bench, be sure to include a large bench into your design plans. You won’t regret it.
An alfresco living and dining space
Australians get to enjoy the pleasures of some of the warmest summers worldwide. It’s at this time of year when outdoor dining is a must.
Be sure to select a home design that includes a living and dining space that connects seamlessly to the alfresco or outdoor area of your home. This can be accomplished through large stacker or sliding doors that open up onto the backyard or deck, or through covering your deck with a pergola and adding an outdoor dining table or couches to the space.
Smart device integration
While home owners may not be thinking about the role of technology in the home, once installed, you’ll wonder why you never thought about smart device integrations in the first place.
If you’re after a space that offers 100% convenience and can be controlled with the swipe of your phone, smart device integrations should be carefully considered prior to the building of your home. You may be able to control certain features such as automating your lighting, heating and cooling, viewing your security cameras via phone or even operating your awnings to cover hanging laundry if it rains without warning.
No matter your needs, be sure to research how your house can facilitate integrations to make your life a little easier.
Lastly, no home is complete without balancing the manmade structure of the house with the organic wonders of nature. While you don’t need to create an indoor jungle, placing some pot plants throughout the house can create a sense of serenity and purify the air for your family and guests.
We recommend some large pot plants in the dining and living area, and some low maintenance hanging plants in the bedrooms and bathrooms.
