Building Contractors Sunshine Coast
Can you seize an opportunity to update and remodel your home or build from scratch, so that you finally end up with exactly what you’ve always wanted?
Views from every room are essential — through deeply inset windows to keep the house cool — and perhaps even mirrors to multiply the view. Open concepts are all the rage too, with highlights of glass and steel. But wallpaper is back — floral prints and pattern-on-pattern or even ornamental latticework panelling — as a focal point, and there is art everywhere, even in the bathroom. Look at artisanal light fixtures. Marble, particularly grey and white, is popular, ageless and long-lasting in kitchens and bathrooms, paired with tiles that look like stone. Bathrooms are to be enjoyed, not just used — spa tubs and saunas, beautiful fixtures and walk-in, nonslip showers are the norm nowadays. Organic and brutalist features are mixed, and contemporary design blends concrete and wood, steel, copper, porcelain and even resin to reflect an organic atmosphere. Watch Pantone and Farrow and Ball for colour trends to reflect the outside world as muted colours give way to bold statements.
State-of-the-art fabric technology means you can’t even tell which materials are sun, stain and moisture-resistant. They look great on furniture from barstools to loungers, and from umbrellas to cushions and tablecloths. Weaves in gemlike hues bolster up the spontaneous charms of the beach, and add both depth and dimension to interiors and terraces.
We expect colour-coordinated appliances and smart steam ovens nowadays, but what about hand-painted geometric tiles, an overhead fan and a rustic kitchen table? And lots and lots of shelves.
Bright window trims
Make a painting out of your view by framing it in a strong colour. Or even contrast a dark siding with a white trim for a classic, timeless look. Brighten up natural foundation colours as accents.
The bar is back
Cocktails at the beach at sunset are a relaxed, happy way to get together and a bar cart or cocktail station makes the hosts’ duties less onerous.
