The suburb you have chosen to build your custom home in can have a big impact on the look and feel of your home. Different suburbs have their own particular atmospheres, ones that you may want to take advantage of with your home. It may be more rustic in nature, or perhaps it captures the hustle and bustle of inner city living. Each suburb has its unique charms.
During the design process, pay a visit to your soon-to-be suburb. That way, you’ll be able to identify any elements you’d like to work into your custom home design.
To create a happily situated home, it is vital that you take into account the type of block that you will be building on. Is the block sloped? Does it have any features like a creek or trees of significance? Knowing this will help you to design your home so that it makes the most of the block, enhancing the natural beauty of your dream home.
As Adelaide sloping site specialists, we encourage those building on a sloping site to take advantage of the benefits these blocks have to offer.
Depending on the nature of the slope, you can design your home so that it perfectly captures your view, or so it shields you from the strong afternoon sun.

This stage of your planning process is a fun and exciting time. This is when you can dive into your dream special features, identifying what are absolute musts, and what can be left out.
An infinity edge pool, master ensuites with a giant built-in spa bath, butler’s pantry, custom home theatre - you name it, you can have it! The only thing that holds you back is your budget, and even then, you can always reassess with your Adelaide custom home builder to come up with an alternative solution that better fits your needs.

When it comes to designing your luxury home, it's helpful to have an idea of what architectural style you’d like.
Different architectural themes have different unique features and appearances, and can help your custom home designers to get a better picture of exactly what kind of feel you want for your home.
If you’re unsure, why not pick up some inspirational home magazines, or look around on Pinterest? You may find that you lean towards a sleek modern style, or perhaps a lavish renaissance theme with big, curving arches and a terracotta roof. Whatever architectural theme you like best, let your team of Adelaide building experts know so that they can incorporate it into your design.
