Changes in Home Design

From an early age Joel has been on construction sites and has over 10 years’ experience working as an apprentice, carpenter, leading hand and foreman, so he’s got a wealth of onsite knowledge at his disposal.

With plenty of experience and a family of his own, Joel is the perfect person to talk to us about the changing landscape of modern home design.

We asked Joel to take us through the changes he’s seen and what his customers expect in a home these days.

In your experience, how has the overall design of the family home changed?

There’s more emphasis these days on “zoning” and separation of parent and children’s areas. Alfresco living and “bringing the outside in” is also important.

Why do you think open plan living is so important to families these days?

I think is just the feeling of openness and space that people find appealing. It also allows people to feel more together when they are in the living areas of the home.

They say the heart of the home is the kitchen, do you feel that’s true?

Yes, definitely.

Which Stroud Homes home has your favourite kitchen layout?

That’s a tough one. It’s hard to go past the Wildflower 300 due to the dual access into the butler’s pantry.

Butler’s Pantries and Walk In Pantries seem to very popular these days. Why do you think this is?

I think this is because the kitchen is very much an entertaining space these days. A butler’s pantry allows people to keep the main kitchen free from clutter.

What is another key feature that families are looking for in a new home these days?

I’ve found that rear and side vehicle access is popular which is a bit more of a block/positioning feature. Other popular design features are 2.7 metre high ceilings and glass free shower configurations.

Why do you think Stroud Homes turn key attitude is so appealing to customers?

It eliminates hidden costs and makes the building experience worry and stress free.
