For this video, we’ve asked our interior designers their top tips for clever design hacks to help with the functionality of your dream house as well as saving money where you can.

Light switch – Putting the light switch next to the bed so you don’t need to get out of the bed to turn the light off.

Counters to the floor – Most people think that countertops must match the floor, but you can change it up, as this can increase the dimension in the room by adding different colours and textures.

Tiling – Tiling to 1m instead of taking it all the way to the ceiling is a great way to save on cost and still looks great. These tips are focused on design as well as creating the most practical kitchen for your new home.

These next tips are primarily focused on the design and aesthetic of your master bedroom. Adding these will help your room feel more expensive as well as adding value.

Makeup station –If you have the space a makeup station is a great complement to the room. It’s functional as well as adding a large amount of value to your dream home.

Blinds to the ceiling –This is a great idea to utilise in small spaces as it helps to make the room look larger by creating the illusion of the walls being taller. It also increases the amount of light that comes through the windows, creating a brighter space.

Feature pendant lights – This style feature is being used by many interior designers as it creates a more expensive feel to the atmosphere. These light fixtures are rapidly becoming a very popular option for new houses, as they offer a unique form of aesthetic lighting.

Resort style bathroom – By making the doorway larger and not closing it off creates a larger open plan hotel vibe as well as fashioning a luxurious ambience to both the bedroom and bathroom. A master bath can be another great value add, to your bathroom.

Walk in robe –If you have the room how could you not add in a walk-in robe! Besides the fact that it’s more functional and looks amazing, it encourages ventilation which helps with the prevention of mould.

Private access to courtyard – This one is more of a design feature that can be more personal. One benefit of this feature is that adding in sliding glass doors creates more light to the room and the more light you can incorporate into the room brighter and larger the room will look and feel.

These last tips are focused on design as well as creating the most practical kitchen for your new home.

Hidden appliances – They say that simplicity is key. That’s what hidden appliances bring to your kitchen simplicity. The benefit of hidden appliances (which are traditionally called integrated appliances) is that they streamline the design of the kitchen by creating a clean, clutter-free atmosphere which in term looks more modern and elegant. These features also lend themselves to opening up room for storage space.

Double sinks – Double sinks are a great choice to utilise space and the functionality of your kitchen. One can be filled to wash the dishes as the other is used to rinse. As well as making more room to cook. A double sink can also be a great addition to any laundry room.

Bin drawer – A bin drawer has a lot more benefits than you may have originally thought. An obvious one is that they are more aesthetically pleasing, I mean do you really want your bin contents on display. My favourite benefit is the practicality of the drawer compared to other bins. Another great advantage is that they are much more hygienic options than an open view bin, by not having the waste open it is less likely to be exposed to harmful bacteria.

Extra-large oven – This one just speaks for itself! Space! Space! Space! No more issues squeezing in that turkey at Christmas.

Handless cupboards – This is a design feature that is a great one to tie in with integrated appliances. It creates a sleek simple, elegant, kitchen design. This can help add value to your own home. These tips are primarily focused on the design and aesthetic of your master bedroom. Adding these will help your room feel more expensive as well as adding value.
