Designing your dream Sunshine Coast home

Choosing to build your new home is an exciting step, especially if this is your first time building. The home design you choose will help you to form a lifestyle for you and your family. From enjoying time in the yard, entertaining indoors, or cooking up a family meal in the kitchen, your new home will help you to create beautiful memories.

If you’ve started the process of gathering floor plans, visiting display homes or making up your own dream home sketches, you’ve probably felt a little overwhelmed at times, and asked yourself a lot of questions.

  • “Where should the bedrooms be located?”

  • “What size master bedroom do I want?”

  • “What style kitchen would work best for my family?”

  • “Should we have the window located here or there?”

  • “What retaining will we require for this type of design?”


At Beachside Construction, we pride ourselves on making your new home build as stress free as possible. We can help you to find the right answers to these questions and design your perfect home. Here are some of our top suggestions to help with your decision making when building a new home on the Sunshine Coast.


Future Proofing your new Sunshine Coast home

One of our top pieces of advice for your new home build is ensure your family members and any future lifestyle changes have been considered and accommodated.


Bedrooms: How many do you need for you and your family or for any guests who may visit? Where do the rooms need to be located? Should they be next to eachother or at other ends of the house? Do they require their own ensuite (eg. a guest bedroom or future AirBnB set up?)

Bathrooms: Does everyone need their own bathroom? If a bathroom will be shared, how many people will share the bathroom? Will you need a shower and a bath?

Kitchen: What size and shape would you like your kitchen to be? Are there any special considerations for your kitchen, or specific appliances which you need to accommodate?

Privacy: Does an open plan design work for you and your family, or would you prefer some rooms / areas which offer some more privacy or opportunity for downtime?

Office space and Hobbies: What requirements do you have for an office space or study? If you or a family member works from home, what do they need to be comfortable? Will children be using this space for homework or entertaining hobbies?
