5 myths about loft home designs BUSTED!

5 myths about loft home designs BUSTED! feature

Lofts allow you to enjoy two-storey living without the two-storey price.

They create impressive street appeal and allow you to maximise the space on your block – and because you’re utilising your roof area, you can enjoy the extra space without compromising on your outdoor areas. To help you find out more about loft living, our Design Team have tackled some of the myths behind loft home designs:

Loft home design myth 1: Lofts have low ceilings – BUSTED!

In order to meet the standards set out in the NCC 2016 Building Code of Australia, our designers strive to ensure that two thirds of the ceiling area in a loft is 2200mm or higher. Our stunning Millstream and Bellport displays feature a generously proportioned loft with impressive raked ceiling and oversized windows. This elongates the space and fills it with natural light. Our designers work hard to ensure each loft home is versatile and functional, creating spectacular spaces that allow for contemporary family living.

Loft home design myth 2: Loft areas are stuffy – BUSTED!

We believe that a loft space can feel just as open and inviting as any other area in the home, if not more so! To do this, our lofts are cleverly designed to maximise the use of windows to create airy, light filled living spaces. Our designers have developed methods to ensure our loft home designs avoid feeling cramped. Through a combination of clever design, innovative steel framing and insulation, all our loft designs all feel spacious and comfortable. Our lofts can incorporate all the usual features you’d only expect on a traditional two storey home such as balcony’s and full height windows.

Loft home design myth 3: Loft areas are small – BUSTED!

Our talented designers have worked hard to ensure each loft design can provide modern families the room they need to live and grow. For example, our Bellport display home is our largest display yet, with a huge 345 square metres of living space. This stunning Hamptons inspired loft home is filled with light and bright spaces, plenty of storage and has a versatile design. Upstairs, the massive loft features an entire children’s wing, with three good sized bedrooms each with a walk-in robe, a dedicated bathroom, study, activity room and private balcony, making it the perfect for families of all sizes.

Loft home design myth 4: Loft areas are noisy – BUSTED!

Our loft spaces are sophisticated sanctuaries, spaces where your family can relax and have fun, which is why we pay particular attention to acoustics. All of our loft home designs feature acoustic matting beneath the floor to reduce noise transfer. Acoustic spacing is also utilised to absorb sound.

Loft home design myth 5: Loft areas look cheap – BUSTED!

View our Bellport and Millstream display homes to discover how our loft home designs give you a high-end looking home at an affordable price. The Millstream features a striking front elevation with a combination of Archistone and weatherboard cladding, while the Bellport is an impressive Hamptons style home boasting a balcony, contrasting render, primeline cladding and gorgeous windows. Our loft collection offers a range of different styles and we invite you to choose the elevation that reflects you, from a more traditional look to an edgy modern home.
