Make building your dream home simple

29th July 2019

It doesn’t have to be hard!

When it comes to creating a dream home, especially for a first-time builder, it can feel like a daunting task. But home building need not be an ordeal. In fact, it should be an exciting and life-changing experience, from your first display centre visit through to when you get the keys. So, with that in mind, here are three simple steps to easily create your dream home.


1. Pick your home design early

When building a home, it is critical to wholeheartedly commit to the process to avoid getting months down the track with nothing done. Therefore, one of the best ways to start, after purchasing land, is to lock in a home design.

When considering your floor plan, consider essential elements first; like how many bedrooms you need and how the design will fit on your block. Once you have clarity around the necessities then you can move on to the extras, including a home theatre, a study or lockable garage.

With over 50 home designs the Plantation Homes website is a great place to start. For single-story dwelling inspiration check out the family-friendly Carmelle range. If a double-storey abode is more your style, the well planned 14m Mirage is a favourite.

Choose your house inclusions

2. Make sure inclusions are right for you and your budget

After selecting your ideal design, it is time to move on to the nitty-gritty details.  This includes focusing on ceiling height, Caesarstone benchtops, kitchen appliances, bathroom finishes and much more.

If you want quality but have a set budget, then the Plantation Essence inclusions promise value for money, including major brands like Caesarstone and Colorbond. While if you are a more discerning buyer, the Plantation Luxury inclusions are worth looking at, with higher ceilings, luxury staircase options and Smeg appliances. Of course, you can also mix and match between all the different inclusion options, to create a home that is uniquely yours.

At the right time in your journey with Plantation Homes, you will visit their design studio in Springwood, Brisbane. Here you can touch, feel and see the products and workshop ideas with the onsite design team.


3. Define your home with the perfect façade

Street appeal is one of the most important factors when it comes to creating a house. This is because the exterior creates the first impression of what your home is like inside, and first impressions last. So, picking the right façade is pretty important.

Most likely you have already visualised your home and know if you want classic or contemporary.  But what you may not know, is how much choice you have when it comes to the details. Plantation Homes offers 23 styles that can create your dream look, using a combination of colours, textures and materials.

Popular styles include, the sophisticated Hamptons-inspired Eastport façade and the modern Mosman design, which has sleek lines and contrasting tones. Both create a lasting impression.  But with so much possibility, deciding can be hard, so Plantation Homes has professional stylists on hand at their Design Studio to help you explore all the options.
