Designing and building your dream home in Perth

22 November 2016

Choosing to build a home will no doubt be one of the biggest decisions you will ever make, so it’s important to get it right from the outset. There’s where the house will be situated, how large it will be, and – importantly – what the interior design layout is. That is when the advice of a good-quality building designer comes in handy. Averna Homes have nearly ten years of experience in building and design, and are one of the most well-respected luxury home builders in Perth.

Important home design considerations

During the design process, it’s important to take into consideration the common areas of your home, which are generally the kitchen and living spaces. Do you want them to be open plan or separate rooms? Would you prefer the mantelpiece to be the main focus in your living room, or the television? If you choose to go with an open-plan design, there is also the shape to consider, such as long, square or L-shaped. When working on the floor plan, your designer will be able to guide you through the process and provide invaluable advice and tips.

Not only will you need to decide what each area will be, but how to utilise the space correctly. If you love entertaining, for example, then a good-sized, fully-serviced alfresco area may well be at the top of your priority list. On the other hand, if you have a house full of teenagers, then separately-zoned areas for peace and privacy might be the way to go. There are endless tricks for every kind of situation, and your designer will no doubt know most of them.

Choosing a Perth home designer

When choosing a designer, it’s important to find one that can not only fill the brief, but that you can trust as well. They will be offering you plenty of advice and (hopefully) listening to all your needs down the track, so it’s crucial that you are both on the same page from the very beginning. Asking the right questions from the outset will encourage open communication and build trust, mutual respect and a great working relationship.

Selecting a builder in Perth

When it comes the time to select your Perth builder, it’s often difficult to know where to start. Word-of-mouth is usually the best form of advertising, so ask friends and family if they have any recommendations for good-quality home builders. Take the time to view their finished product, so if they have display homes, visit them in order to get an idea of their workmanship, design layout ideas and fittings.

Incorporating design & build

Ideally, you choose to work with a company that incorporates both the design as well as the build of your dream home. Averna Homes are one of Perth’s top boutique home builders and designers, and have won countless awards over the years for their custom-built luxury homes. Averna take care of each and every stage of the process, including interior and exterior design inspiration to finish your new home off perfectly.
