Inclusions are one of the biggest factors that turn your house design into a home. While choosing the perfect house design is an exciting step in the building process, the inclusions you select are what makes it unique and personal to you. We’ve rounded up the most popular inclusions for your kitchen, bathroom, interior and exterior that will take your home to the next level. At Clarendon Homes, we know you want a high quality home that doesn’t break the bank, so that’s why we provide stunning luxury inclusions for less.
At Clarendon Homes, the standard inclusions and promotional upgrade inclusions are carefully selected by the interior design team to ensure they represent the very latest in new home design for families building their dream home.
According to Clarendon Homes’ Interior Design Manager, Rachel Guerrero, having the right inclusions to suit your lifestyle is a must when planning a new build.
“Our homes are working harder for us than they ever have before. With more family members living under the one roof for longer, multiple home offices, makeshift gyms and backyard holidays. That’s why, now more than ever, it’s so important to ensure you have the ideal inclusions for your family’s specific lifestyle,” Rachel said.
Affectionately known as the heart of the home, the kitchen is an important space that deserves nothing but the best with appliances from leading brands in technology such as Smeg or Miele. With a matching European oven and cooktop, as well as an option for an integrated dishwasher, your statement kitchen will come together like no other.
When thinking about your prep space, they always say a clean space means a clear mind. This is easier than ever on your grand island benchtop, with 40mm stone benchtops and Dorf Vixen retractable sink mixer. The designer sink mixer makes cleaning up a breeze with the low maintenance but gorgeous stone benchtops, available in a variety of colours to suit your stunning new home.
Finally, the days of slamming cupboard doors and re-organising the pantry time and time again to fit your plates are over with pot drawers and soft close drawers. Clarendon is flexible so you can pick where your pot drawers will go, or choose from our presets if you’re happy with the standard placements.
Often the place where you start and end your day, your ensuite should feel like your very own private retreat. Choose a freestanding bath and enjoy luxury bubble baths at the end of a long day at work, or opt for full-height tiling and a tiled shower niche or shelf to take your ensuite and bathroom to the next level. Don’t forget to add soft close vanity doors or a Methven Krome twin rail shower, which will add to the luxurious feel of your ensuite!
Take the interior of your home to the next level of luxury with extra high 2750mm ceilings, and don’t forget to also increase the height of your doors and windows for a sense of space and style. If you have a single storey home, consider adding a 3000mm high ceiling to the entry area to create an amazing sense of space for first impressions. Square set ceilings throughout the home are a popular option amongst new builds and make a modern statement, while ducted air conditioning is also a must in our Queensland climate.
We asked Rachel Guerrero, Interior Design Manager at Clarendon Group for advice on where to get started:
"Good design doesn’t just happen, and it does require some forward planning. I always suggest a great place to start is simply to make a list of each space within your new home. I’d then start to think about who uses it, what they do there, what they need and want in the space. Then it’s just a matter of designing it and including items that help those people and activities’ function and flow with ease. Our clients have full access to our partnered industry professionals who can assist them through these inclusions and solutions to ensure they are making the best design decisions for their investment and their families."
