14 Making the most of

14 Making the most of show home viewing Looking through show homes is a great way to get ideas for features and fittings to put into a new home. it can also be helpful for getting a spatial feel for other aspects of a house design. Before heading out for a day’s viewing, conduct an internet search. identify the locations of show home villages and the types and sizes of the various building company’s homes on display, noting down the square metre size of each home. if wanting a high end, architectural design, focus on the larger homes that have desirable design features. if at the entry or middle level of the market, earmark homes that fit this taking in other show homes for extra ideas. allow sufficient time when visiting each show home, asking for a floor plan that has room sizes before walking through. Check also the floor to ceiling height of the rooms and consider how this feels and whether you prefer a cosier feel with the standard ceiling eight of 2.4 metres or more spaciousness created with a higher stud or exposed ceiling beams. if doors and windows are taller than normal, weigh their effect in creating a more luxurious and spacious feel, against potential inconvenience for small children, cleaning and maintenance. on entering each room, take account of how much furniture is in each room and whether there is sufficient space for the furniture you will have in the room and the size needed in a walk-in robe. Look too, at storage capacity throughout the home and whether this is adequate. in the living areas, consider whether a lounge separated from the family living room or a true open plan kitchen, dining, living/lounge area is preferable, and compare internal kitchens with those that have natural light. Look too at the layout of the kitchen: whether to have an island sink or breakfast bar where a newspaper can be read, and children can sit and draw or complete homework; the positioning of appliances; and how important having a pantry is. for the little rooms, equate space and features desired with that needed, especially if the budget needs to be sharp. it might be nice to have a large walk-in shower with double shower heads but is this just fanciful and will the extra cleaning annoy you long term. a laundry in the garage is also more economical though a separate laundry may be handier. Bring the garage size into the equation also. as these vary considerably, assess the actual measurements of each garage viewed comparing this with the space needed for your motor vehicles and other items to be stored there. if a good number of toys will be housed there, it may be sensible to increase the size of this area of the home. By imagining what you need, want and will have in your new home, you will be in a better position to confidently choose a design that works for you.
