Bespoke homes are highly sought after, particularly in Petersham and Haberfield where art deco meets modern minimalistic(*1). In addition to building new, Australians have been busy renovating over the past 18 months. On average, NSW residents have been spending $66, 609 on home renovations(*2).

Custom Home Trends

Bespoke homes are all about custom floorplans, functional house features and unique quality finishes. What one person may deem ideal for their floorplan or house features often differs from the next person. This is why building bespoke homes are always interesting.

What are the Most Common Trends in Custom-Built Homes?

Here are the top five common trends in Sydney and across Australia.

  1. Multi-functional spaces allow each family member to have their own space within the household.
  2. Larger office areas. Whether office spaces are expanded, or additional nooks are built. Professionals and families are looking for more office and study space at home(*3).
  3. Environmentally friendly features that save money and the environment. As people spend more time at home, eco-friendly options such as solar, passive cooling and heating, insulation, and daylighting are higher on the must-have
  4. Future-proofed materials. Custom-made Australian materials are in huge demand because of their longer lifespans and suitability to our climate.
  5. Mindful textures and tones. Bringing the outside in using materials that introduce textures and natural colours are hugely popular.

What is Influencing Residential Building Trends?

The biggest influencer on residential building trends now is COVID-19. Australians have responded by building new homes that are more:

• Functional.
• Relaxing.
• Spacious.
