Top Home Designs Of 2020: What to Look for In Your New Home

How can you find a home that will suit your family and provide value well into the future? You look for quality design in a great location, of course. Whether you’re buying an existing home or choosing from house and land packages in Mackay, here’s what to look for in terms of architectural and interior design trends.

Natural timber and organic textures

Homebuyers are looking for beautiful natural finishes in their homes in 2020, which is why you might see more and more home designs with stone feature walls or timber highlights. The house and land package available at 178 Excelsa Circuit in Rural View is a prime example, with its timber entryway features and timber-look garage door. Natural textures aren’t just for home exteriors either – depending on your home design you might like to choose stone or granite benchtops, or ask about luxurious timber flooring.

Inviting and natural neutrals

Whether we’re talking about your home exterior or interior paint choices, natural and neutral colours such as calming stone greys, warm whites and subtle sand tones are right on point in 2020, and complement the use of organic textures such as timber. These colours can look beautiful inside when offset with crisp white trim on skirting boards and ceilings. While you can add vibrancy through accessories or statement furniture in bold colours, home design is all about embracing the simple and enduring hues of nature.

Modern entertaining spaces

Queensland’s beautiful climate provides year-round opportunities to entertain, so one key aspect to look for in your new home is open and well-designed entertaining spaces. A home design such as the one being completed at 33 Azure Drive in Rural View, for example, offers a spacious alfresco area that extends straight from the kitchen, as well as a butler’s pantry so you can keep your benchtops clear while friends are over.

Environmentally considered designs

Newly designed homes are often constructed with more environmentally sound choices, which can mean a more comfortable home all year round – as well as lower bills! It’s worth asking your builder about the choices they’ve made to make your home design as eco friendly as possible, which might include quality insulation, north facing windows that catch the sun, and doors and windows that allow for cross ventilation.   

Whether you’re searching for vacant land for sale in Mackay to build on or the perfect house and land package, Plantation Palms real estate offers an exceptional choice for a location that’s close to schools, the city centre and the beach.
