A few home truths about building a home and all that surrounds it.

Choosing a modern house floorplan to suit your lifestyle

21/04/2021


Finding the best house floorplan is like looking for the perfect outfit. There will be many that don’t suit you, some that are too small or big, and something that feels like it was made for you.
 
Your home floorplan reflects how you live your life. Our modern, adaptive floorplans are the most popular. You can mix and match to suit your needs, so your home really feels like your own. Burbank also has a range of standard house floorplans that can also be adapted, so there really is something for everyone.
 
Here are some of our most popular features to consider:

Home office or study nook

Office life changed forever last year, and many people are now choosing to work from home, at least a couple of days a week. A home office is a dedicated space to work or study, away from the chaos of family life. While a study nook is perfect for school-aged children to do their homework, close enough they can ask mum or dad for help if they need to.

Vertical spaces and higher ceilings

High ceilings are our most popular upgrade and combined with vertical spaces give your home a modern, architectural feel. We have options for raked ceilings in interesting, eye-catching designs.
 
These features open up rooms like living spaces and allow for beautiful features like a piece of artwork, pendant lights or even a chandelier!

Home zones

With children staying at home for longer, and an increase in families choosing multi-generational living, dedicated home zones can benefit everyone in the household.
 
Parents’ zones with a master suite, ensuite, walk-in robe and retreat area are becoming one of our most sought-after floorplan features.
 
Formal living is making a comeback. Traditionally used as a room to take guests after dinner, loungerooms are now part of everyday living, giving families more space to spread out and relax.
 
Dedicated kids’ zones are a win for growing families. With a playroom or rumpus room, or a second TV area, kids’ zones are usually located near the children’s bedrooms, which people tell us helps them keep the mess in one area! If you love movie night, a home theatre room is the perfect addition to your home floorplan.

Alfresco

A beautiful alfresco area expands your floorspace and brings the outdoors in. You won’t regret this choice on a sunny day! Perfect for entertainers and lovers of cooking, the alfresco has a multitude of uses. We are also seeing an increase in alfresco spaces off the master suite - an indulgent and relaxing area to enjoy your morning coffee or an evening drink.
 
Whatever your needs, Burbank has the best home floorplan to suit you!
