The first step to building the home you want is deciding what you really want your home to be like. Do you want a colonial home? Art Deco? A Queen Anne? Modern? Or do you want to be experimental and invest in a Dual occupancy home? Each home has its own set of requirements, but the common list includes sanitation facilities and practical conveniences. It should not fall short when it comes to the basics.
Colonial homes run back to the 1800s when they were originally built. At the time, they accommodated farmers, workers, and their lands. They were usually located in the suburbs of the city and held entire lands of cultivation for the workers. However, in today’s day and age, the Colonial style of houses is popular and known to give a classic and luxury feel to your home. Art Deco holds its aestheticism with regards to rich colors, bold geometry, and decadent detail work. The style of art deco first developed in France just before World War I. It has influenced the design of furniture, jewelry, fashion, cars, etc. The Queen Anne style of architecture came to be after the Victorian style and is a more recognized Australian style of living. The roofs are steep, the bricks are more deeply toned, patterned wallpapers with fancy edges are the norm of this design.
The term Modern speaks for itself. A more contemporary form of architecture, modern homes are marked by their open and internal form of planning. The design structure falls under odd angles, shapes, and possibly even a flat roof.
Last but definitely not the least, in Melbourne, Dual Occupancy homes are slowly taking over as the most popular form of investment as Australians are understanding the tricks of entering the property market with a safe hand. Dual occupancy homes are 2 houses built on the same land, with either a shared wall or as a separate home, thus increasing the property value.
