There are lots of reasons why you might need to upsize or upgrade your current home. When clients come to us asking if they should renovate or just demolish and build, the answer is simple. Rebuilding from the ground up offers lots of opportunities and benefits.
Here are a few of the top reasons why you should consider demolishing and rebuilding with a new home design.
No costly hidden surprises
Renovation projects are renowned for going over budget because you never know what you’re going to find behind your walls and under floors. Unexpected structural repairs and matching new materials to old can be costly and you often need to spend money to ensure the structure meets current building code. If you demolish and build, you know exactly what you’ll be doing – starting fresh.
No need to compromise
Starting from scratch means you can incorporate the design features that suit your lifestyle, rather than trying to work around dated layouts or traditional features. Today’s new home design trends have moved towards contemporary and spacious plans that make the most of natural light with plenty of room for entertaining both indoors and out.
Stay in the location you know and love
If you decide to demolish your existing home and re-build, you’ll be able to stay in the location you’re already familiar with. Building a modern house in an established Perth suburb means you get a new home without having to wait years for infrastructure to catch up, as is often the case in new developments.
Today’s building techniques have come a long way from days gone by. Building a new home means you can incorporate environmentally friendly and sustainable options such as energy efficient design and appliances, water conservation systems and eco-friendly construction materials. Investing in energy efficient features upfront will save you money in the long run on heating, cooling, water and electricity bills.
Take your new home to the next level, by installing the latest technology. New home builds allow you to integrate a home network to power all your devices and keep you connected no matter where you are in your home. The latest trend in home automation means you can control lights, appliances, entertainment and security systems remotely – from your tablet or smartphone. The possibilities are endless when you’re designing a new home from scratch, as new technology can be difficult to install in an existing home.
Building a new home also offers an opportunity to add a few touches of luxury that are difficult to retro-fit to existing homes. If you’ve always wanted under-floor heating, chef’s kitchen, luxury bathroom or handcrafted finishes, then building a new home is the best opportunity to make sure you get everything on your wish list. One of the key advantages of demolishing and re-building is getting the extra bedrooms or added space that you need.
Return on Investment
Building your dream home in an established area means your home will be worth much more than a renovated house in the area and well worth the additional investment apart from the enjoyment of living in a modern and efficient home.
