Sth Shell Cove Seacrest

Image shown above is the laundry in Beechwood Homes' Seacrest design, on display at Housing World Shell Cove.

One of the most important things to think about when designing any practical room such as a laundry or kitchen is the roles of form and function; making something look good, but still work well is the dream of every home designer.

Many people often forget about the humble laundry when planning their dream home, some compromise on space while others overlook the fundamental need for storage. It is definitely a difficult balance to strike! A good laundry rarely receives the praise it deserves, a good mixture of storage and bench spaces support the washing and drying appliances meaning that the chore of laundry is that little bit easier every time.

Some great possibilities include pull out folding tables and fold down ironing boards, as they make the folding and sorting of clothes a breeze. Ensuring there are adequate power points is a common after thought, so considering how many appliances will need power, plus any extras (sometimes you might want to charge a phone or plug in some music) is a good tip. Also, clothing racks that let you hang and air clothes are worth their weight in gold if the weather is a little damp out. These can be installed underneath a set of cupboards or over a folding bench.

Big drawers that can hold baskets or built in laundry buckets are some more fantastic ways to keep the laundry area looking neat and tidy. Of course it won't always so a big sink for soaking whites and washing off mud is another handy feature.

There really are so many options when it comes to creating the perfect laundry for your dream home.

Beechwood Homes have a broad range of home designs, all of which provide an ideal amount of space for your laundry requirements. However it is always good to think of your own personal needs to ensure your newly built project home's laundry is tip top! Our FlexiBuild option means that all our designs can be tailored to suit your family's needs.

Beechwood Homes staff member Jessica recently took her family to a trip to visit the range of Beechwood Homes on display at Housing World Shell Cove. The following is her experience while she was there.

When I first pulled up outside the sales office I was blown away by the four impressive homes that stood before me. I could not help but imagine what it would be like to pull into the street with the kids in tow, have us all pile out of the car and race through the front door at the end of a hard day’s work. With a smile on my face, we all proceeded through to inspect the homes.

I found myself standing back and watching my children explore the home. They were drawn to the large open living spaces, opening every door they could find and racing through the homes arguing which room would be theirs. My husband was more impressed with the theatre rooms and whilst getting comfortable on the lounge proceeded to tell me, “We need a room like this at home to be my ‘man cave’.”

I have to say I was most impressed by the kitchens and large pantry spaces, one home even had a butler’s pantry; something I would love to have in my own home. This was an affordable home design that offered something special to each of us.

Upon leaving, I stopped to talk to Matt Slee, one of the Building and Design team members at Beechwood Homes. He was extensively knowledgeable with each of the new designs on display. We got to talking about what inclusions come with these homes. I was surprised at the amount of quality inclusions that Beechwood offer as “Indulgence Packages”.

These Indulgence Packages include items that I had not expected, but with inclusions like carpet and tiles, 3 coat paint system and termite resistant frames, I walked away being genuinely impressed with Beechwood Homes.”
