You can read people by looking at their immediate surroundings. Our homes tell a lot about who we are. Much like the external body language of a person, a home says everything without actually speaking. At MK Home Design, we have always looked towards creating a home that is a true expression of who you are – that way it will truly feel like home.
Blending function with aesthetics
Irrespective of whether you are looking to build a new home for yourself or renovate the existing one, the emphasis must be on a true marriage of functionality and aesthetics. After all, you do not want to decorate your home too well and forget the ventilation. Conversely, you do not want to give your entire self to the cause of light and ventilation, completely ignoring that a home must also look good to the human eye.
New home design in Lindfield
When we design homes, we look at the bigger picture. There are questions that need being answered in all honesty. What kind of short, medium and long-term plans do the home-owners have? Do they have a flexible budget (because sometimes the vision of a designer can be stunted by budgetary constraints)?
What the family exactly needs (is there going to be an increase in the number of residents, a question among many)? Of course, equally important is to understand the lifestyle of the residents of the home (for instance, if home owners are the partying type; we talk barbecues…if they are the relaxing type; we talk patios with built-in-roofing)?
There are so many distinct and subtle aspects of a home which need to be kept in mind. Something as subtle as the orientation or the aspect can have a lot of bearing on the homes you live in. In fact, why only new homes, at MK Home Design we think a lot about quality renovations, too.
Home renovation in Lindfield
In the years that we have closely watched, scrutinised, and been in sync with the renovation industry, we have come to understand one thing quite clearly: renovations work best when they are conducted in an expansive way. You do not want to give a boost to your curb appeal and leave your roof devoid of shingles. You do not want your patio to look good and forget about the structural corrosion of the entryway.
It is good, and even appropriate, to think about renovating your bathroom but imagine: will a superbly renovated bathroom blend well with a kitchen that has not been touched upon for ages? While conducting any home renovation in Lindfield, we look for a few really cost-effective solutions for you, even while keeping the scope of the job really big.
These are possibly the best times for the renovation industry and any noise about this not being so, is, well, just a noise. So gird up your loins and give your home the shape you have dreamt of. If it is a new home you have in mind, we will be equally enterprising in making it a reflection of your own personality.
Martin Kolarik (the helmsman of the MK Home team) has profound knowledge of Bushfire safety and local council regulations. Homeowners in Slade Avenue, Carlye Road, Lady Game Drive and many other areas would know just how crucial Bushfire-averse home designing can be.
Great artists can afford to indulge themselves but home designers have to remember each step of the way that it is somebody else’s vision they have got to represent on the home’s canvas. Bearing this in mind, Martin makes it a rule to listen more and speak less. After all, he wants to absorb as much from the clients as possible to conjure something that their heart longs for.
Only because Martin binds the clients’ requirement pretty well with the council requirements does he manage to get record council approvals. Clients, invariably, return a happy lot, too.
So feel free to give us a call and let us journey with you on your dream home design or home renovation project.
