Five ways a quality new home could enable your dream lifestyle

Your home life is made up of thousands of little moments. Sunshine streaming onto your face through double glazed bifold doors. Family dinners prepped in a chef’s kitchen and served with love. A quiet afternoon nap on the couch in a second lounge. Summer evenings on a sunny deck.

If you build new, you have a chance to shape those moments before they even happen – to build your lifestyle for the next 10, 20, 30+ years. Here are ways that building a new home could mean better moments at home and a dream lifestyle. 

1. Less maintenance – more time

You work hard and your time is precious. That’s why your home should be a place of relaxation and peace, not an ongoing project that sucks up more and more of your precious time.

While some existing properties (particularly older ones) may require regular expensive and time consuming maintenance, a quality new build won’t. That means more time with your feet up and less time working hard. 

2. Custom built for you

No matter how long you search, you won’t find an existing home where every detail and every room is built to match your dream lifestyle. But with a newly built home, that’s exactly what you get. 

For example, you might want a second lounge so that the kids can have their own space to relax (and give you a little peace and quiet). Or if you’re a keen chef, you might want a butler’s pantry for storing ingredients and prep for dinner parties. Petrolheads may want an extra large garage, while those who get cold feet might fancy underfloor heating. With a new build, it’s all possible.

3. More space 

Older builds often don’t make the most of their site, leaving valuable square meterage underused. Building new is a great way to ensure that you maximise your site and build a home that has plenty of space, for now and in the future. 

This will give you the room you need to keep your home decluttered and avoid stepping on your family’s toes. Whether you achieve this with a second lounge, a media room, large bedrooms or an outdoor living space – it’s up to you.

4. Rooms built for purpose

When you build a brand new home you’ll get the chance to create spaces that are built for a specific purpose, as opposed to adapting space in an existing home. For example, you could choose to include a media room for movies or gaming with blackout blinds and soundproofing. 

If you love to cook, you may want your kitchen adapted to fit special appliances, or perhaps you could add a breakfast counter for casual dining. Whatever your hobbies are, a purpose-built room will make it easier and more fun to enjoy them.

5. Added comfort (and quiet)

It’s hard to get a good night’s sleep when a draft keeps blowing through your bedroom window in winter. Same goes for summer when the humidity and the temperature are high. Noisy neighbours or a busy road can also make your time at home less than relaxing.

Luckily, that’s an easy fix. A quality new build is far more soundproof, weatherproof and well insulated than most older homes, meaning they’re quieter and more comfortable.
