Building a house from scratch is an opportunity for people to really let their imaginations run wild. During the planning stage, it is a good idea to make sure that the budget will be able to cover all the work that needs to be done.
There are dozens of different ways to make sure that the new house is a place that the whole family will want to stay in for years to come, from building new double storey homes to fitting a walk-in-wardrobe.
Read this guide to be inspired by Pottier Homes for eight excellent house building ideas for 2016.
Install A Walk-In Wardrobe
Storing clothes in cramped wardrobes and stuffy drawers can cause them to be ruined. Instead, why not install a walk-in wardrobe next to the bedroom so that getting ready in the morning in extremely easy.
Having an entire room dedicated to clothes will ensure that all the clothes can be hung on racks without getting creased or crumpled.
Build A Two Storey House With Lots Of Floorspace
Some people might think that they need to build a house with as many storeys as possible. This is not the case. A two storey house with lots of floor space will provide the whole family with plenty of room. The lower storey could be an open-plan space connecting the kitchen, dining room and living room, whilst the upper storey could feature closed-off bedrooms. Shop around to compare double storey builders in Perth.
Install A Games Room
Keeping children entertained can be difficult, so it could be a good idea to build a games room. The games room doesn’t just have to be filled with electronic gadgets. For example, why not have a snooker table and a pinball machine in the room, along with a dartboard.
Install Chrome And Steel For A Modernist Look
Black steel is a popular material in 2016, which can be used for doors and tables. This material can be twinned with chrome in order to create a modernist look throughout the entire house.
Use Two-Tone Paint On The Walls
In 2016, two-tone paint contrasting of separate colours has become increasingly popular. Test out different colours before deciding on the final design. Use this type of paint in a couple of rooms – using it throughout the house could cause lots of different colours to clash unnecessarily.
Build A Walkway From The Kitchen To The Back Yard
A covered walkway allows people to walk from the kitchen to the back yard without being exposed to heavy rain or bright sunshine. The cover can be constructed out of mesh with vines and plants growing over the top for a natural look.
Create A Private Grotto In The Back Yard
Sometimes parents want to have some peace and quiet away from the children whilst they are still at home. Secluded areas in the garden can be built by laying down some decking, installing some comfortable reclining chairs and growing plants and trees for privacy.
Fit The Living Room With A Statement Fireplace
Whilst the weather in Perth is usually too hot to consider turning on the heating or starting a fire, why not have a statement fireplace installed in the living room? A beautifully designed fireplace with an ornate hearth will be a joy to look at.
