Modern Living on the Gold Coast
Who better to talk to about modern home design than Nathan Dunn from Stroud Homes Gold Coast who has 20 plus years of building experience under his toolbelt.
Nathan has seen home design transform from the pokey, rabbit warrens to “Homes with open plan living and seamless transitions from inside living areas to outdoor rooms.”
With the wonderful climate and the lifestyle led on the Gold Coast, you can never miss building like this. “A built-in outdoor BBQ doesn’t go astray either,” says Nathan.
Nathan believes that this desire to have open plan living stems from “the need for connectivity” and giving people that feeling of “light and open spaces.” Connectivity is especially important for families today as everyone is leading busy lives.
By designing and building homes that bring the family together, Nathan and his team are meeting their customer needs.
“Parents want to bring the family together to cook, enjoy each other’s company and to socialise when entertaining family and friends.”
“The kitchen is the hub of the home,” says Nathan. “It’s a place where people can share their love and food and tell a yarn.”
Nathan believes that shows like Masterchef are responsible for bringing people into their kitchens and with the plethora of cooking appliances and gadgets out there they need somewhere to put them. That’s where Butler’s Pantries and Walk-In Pantries come into the mix!
“You can contain the work and day to day appliances in the Butler’s Pantry, whilst keeping the main kitchen looking nice and tidy.”
Nathan’s favourite kitchen design in the Stroud Homes range is in the Bronte 240. “It packs one hell of a punch in a compact space and has everything you need in a kitchen and butler’s pantry combo.”
Other features popular with Nathan’s customers at the moment are luxurious bathrooms with full height tiling and freestanding soaking baths. Most importantly, Nathan’s customers love their reputation for quality.
“We are not a budget builder. Discerning clients recognise the value in a Stroud Homes home.”
