Design Trends for Your Modern Home

Most people building or planning to build a luxury home Perth are looking for the latest trends and modern designs. Whether that is in colours, type of furniture, technology, or even building materials, there are always trends. Building your home with a company like Great Living homes allows you the access to modern ideas and also the ability to adjust your design to suit your design needs. So what are some of the design trends showing up this year for new homes? We have put together a small list below.

Green Is a Go
Green is a go both in the flora sense and also the environmental sense. Firstly flora, it is no secret that if you walk into a café or a funky restaurant you will see nice artificial plants that make the room seem both comforting and natural. Greenery or even the colour green adds depth and warmth to your home. We recommend jumping on the artificial plant bandwagon and making your house that little bit more fresh. Going green also refers to the popular trend of making your home more sustainable and environmentally friendly. This can be done through the use of solar panels, rainwater tanks and even steel framing. Go green for your new home.

Creating space where technology cannot go
Technology has gotten fast and invasive very quickly. Its advancement has caused many people to look for places where they can be tech free. In your new home why not create one of those spaces; it’s called broken plan spaces. You can custom design your house with cosy little offset rooms that can be made into tech free nooks. You can use these rooms for reading, doing a hobby or just socialising. Adding features like a hammock or day bed can also help within these spaces.

Embracing New home technology
On the flip side to the above trend is the trend to make your home a lot more tech savvy. Making the most of the technologies that are available is something that can create an ease to your home environment. In recent years technology has advanced to allow a streamlined and functional operation within your home, it’s referred to as a smart home. Basically allowing you to control almost everything from your mobile or tablet device. There are many luxury home builders Perth who can help you with new home technology.

Flexible Rooms
Flexibility and versatility is a great feature popping up in homes today. With a growing amount of smaller houses being built on narrow lots there is more of a need for rooms that can serve two purposes. These dual rooms for example could have a fold out sofa in them, a television and a desk, therefore creating a bedroom if necessary but otherwise a nice little entertainment room. Dual rooms are a definite trend for anyone building a smaller home, or just looking to maximise space.
