Whether you’re looking for modern kitchen designs or new technology to keep your home energy efficient and comfortable, we’ve got something for everyone. Read on to find out more!

Smart Device Integration

Smart devices are now well and truly the norm, and integrating them into your new build is essential if you want to get the most out of them. 

Smart devices can help lower your energy bills by using sensors to detect when people are present or away from the house and adjust the temperature accordingly. 

They can also give you ultimate control over how much light is used in the house and even enable voice commands that allow you to control things like lights and music with ease.

Designer Lighting

Lighting plays an important role when it comes to bringing life into a home. 

From pendants, chandeliers, and task lighting in kitchens and bathrooms. Designer lighting will create a unique atmosphere that won’t be found anywhere else!

There are now so many smart light options available, as well as colourful LED’s that allow you to completely transform the vibe of a room at the push of a button.

Alfresco Living & Outdoor Dining Space

An alfresco living area adds extra living space that can be enjoyed all year round (especially on those beautiful Perth summer nights!). 

With outdoor kitchen options available as well, it’s the perfect way to host friends or family for meals outdoors without having to worry about pests getting inside your house!


Having a mudroom within your new design allows for easy storage of coats, shoes, bags etc., preventing the mess from entering other parts of the house while providing convenience at the same time.

It also helps keep dirt and dust from spreading throughout the rest of the house which can help reduce the time you spend cleaning your new home.

Modern Kitchen

When building a new home it is important that you invest in creating high-quality kitchen spaces which will last for many years! 

This includes features such as double or extended-length kitchen islands (see next heading) which provide plenty of work space along with cabinets made from modern materials or granite countertops that both look amazing and are resistant to wear and tear over time.

Double or Extended Length Kitchen Islands

With these types of islands, you can add additional counter space while still having room to move around comfortably in the kitchen area.

The added counter space also allows for more storage opportunities as well which makes food preparation easier than ever before. You could even install a sink within this island if desired so washing up dishes becomes less tedious too!

Smart Thermostat

Smart thermostats allow homeowners complete control over their heating systems from anywhere in their homes with just one device – no need for multiple remote controls anymore.

Not only does this make it easier to monitor energy usage but it also helps reduce costs associated with heating bills due to its accurate temperature sensing capabilities as well as its ability to learn user habits over time through machine learning algorithms built into its programming code.

Get your Home Solar Ready

Even if you don't plan on installing solar panels right away, ensure that your home is ready for them by including pre-wiring during construction stages so installation becomes easier down the line should you decide later that solar power is something worth investing in. Not just financially speaking but environmentally too!

In Summary

Building a new home doesn't have to be stressful or overwhelming. There are lots of great features available nowadays which will not only make life easier but look great too!

From smart device integration and designer lighting through alfresco living areas and modern kitchens complete with double-length kitchen islands - all these features combined together create an amazing space filled with possibilities waiting to be explored.
