Kitchen Must Haves
If you’re looking to add value to your home, the kitchen is an important room to focus on, when it comes to inclusions and features.
Butler’s Pantry – As mentioned above, a walk-in butler’s pantry is a highly sought after feature. It’s a great place to store large platters, tableware, glasses, linen and much more. Plus, it helps keep your kitchen clutter-free!
Premium Appliances – Insist on quality appliances when looking at builders’ inclusions. 900mm wide appliances are not only great to use, but they look fabulous too.
Stone Benchtops – This is one of the first things buyers fall in love with when they walk into a display home. Available in a wide range of colours, textures and finishes, stone benchtops bring a sense of sophistication to your kitchen. They are also becoming increasingly popular for bathrooms and laundries.
Spacious, Open Plan Living
Open plan living spaces are also trending with new homebuyers. Unlike traditional closed-off rooms, combined kitchen, lounge and dining areas create a feeling of extra space.
High Ceilings – Add a luxurious feeling and sense of space, light and openness to your new home with high ceilings. They also provide the opportunity to create a stunning focal point with statement pendant lights.
Natural Light – Larger windows and sliding doors are a wonderful way to add ambience and let extra natural light in.
Make an Entrance
Not only does an extra-wide front door create a grand entry, but it also adds to your new home’s street appeal. Painting your front door a bold or contrasting colour is also popular right now. Consider pastel pink, navy blue, black, or even top trending lavender, to name just a few. It’s a great way to make a statement, without breaking the budget!
