Design Ideas For Your Dream Home

We’ve all got some kind of idea of how our dream home might look.

Some of us dream of having a pool in the back garden, whilst others want a modern design together with elements that give it a bit of character. Why not take a look at these design features to see how they can inspire your dream home!

Outdoor living space

Outdoor rooms can be linked to your home whilst being open to your garden. This provides a perfect way of enjoying the great outdoors even when the weather turns nasty. These outdoor rooms can take the form of verandas and porches, and provide a great place to relax with friends and family. To set your outdoor living space, why not consider incorporating elements that add comfort, and will allow you to enjoy your new living space all year round, such as an outdoor fireplace, shades or shutters? To add more comfort and uniqueness, you could even add interiors such as armchairs, cushions or even furnish it with an outdoor kitchen!

Ceiling heights

Your ceilings can influence the look and feel of your home, giving rooms such as your kitchen, dining or living room shape and character whilst emphasising the wow-factor. If your kitchen and dining room is open plan, adding a lower level ceiling to the dining area will create a more intimate feel, whilst a higher level ceiling in the living area will define it as a public space.


Never underestimate the importance of lighting, whether it’s natural or artificial. The lighting can change the mood of a room as well as the feel of the size of the room, and can therefore make or break the ambience, so it pays to get it right first time round!
