A laundry needs to be one of the most practical rooms in your new home. Custom Builders will have lots of designs and pictures to show you, but you need to decide exactly what you want your laundry to do for you. Storage, bench space, the type of washing machine, a steam or regular iron and ironing space, a place for wet shoes and jackets and maybe even more.
Building a new home with a Custom Builder means a large choice of bathroom design. When you build with a volume builder, the bathroom size and costing of your fittings will be pre-determined by the house plan you choose. You can upgrade the fittings and finishes at a cost, but changing the structure of the room will be costly. With a Custom Builder this is not an issue, you make your choices about room size, finishes and fittings before the plan is finalised.
Your Custom Built Home is almost ready, you are looking to taking ownership and moving in, but……what about all that dirt outside?
I’m sure you have already decided on the areas to be decked or paved, that may be part of your package……. But the dirt?!?
Two logical solutions are to turf it, with ready grown grass or to use artificial grass.
Today, we are spoilt for choice, there are many products and variations within each product in the flooring market. Flooring choices range from authentic polished wooden floors (from sustainable forests only- of course), to manufactured wooden flooring, to laminate (looks like wood but….) to vinyl wood-look-a-likes. The choice for your home will depend on how you see the area being used, on-going maintenance and the aesthetics – look and feel.
Wow! What a lot of choices we have. How to decide? It all comes down to one of two things – cost or look. Maybe a combination of both. Your choice of benchtop ranges from bamboo and timber to natural granite or marble to laminate (that can look like any choice of product) to Engineered Stone. And within each category there are heaps of choices of colour and pattern.
