Why Visit Display Homes in Adelaide

Visiting a display home before you buy a house and land package or before you hire a builder for your own construction project is always a good idea. Not only will it allow you to see the level of quality in the materials, construction, and design, it will also allow you to get a better understanding of the dimensions and layout of the home. Here are some tips for what to look for in the next display home you visit.

The Kitchen Triangle
A good "kitchen triangle," or usage pattern dictated by the positioning of the three major kitchen amenities (sink, refrigerator, and stove) is essential in any home. When playing with designs on paper, it is a bit harder to fully appreciate the impacts of moving the various amenities around. You might move the sink to the other wall on the plans, not realizing that a move of a few centimetres on paper means more than a few steps in real life. When you visit a display home in Adelaide in person, you can evaluate the kitchen triangle first hand and make sure that it allows you to use the kitchen efficiently. The last thing you want to do is end up with a fancy kitchen full of gleaming high-tech gadgets that are just too awkwardly placed to use comfortably on a regular basis.

Acoustics
If possible, it's always good to visit display homes in Adelaide with a friend. That way you can stand in various parts of the home and see how loud you have to shout in order to be able to hear one another. Ideally, you will have to shout quite loud, because the walls will be thick enough to muffle ordinary conversational-level sounds. That way you will know that you will have good privacy in various different rooms. Of course, if there are other visitors in the display home at the time you might get some funny looks!

Quality and Appearance of Materials
When building a home or purchasing one from a developer, you may have a tough time assessing the quality of different building materials based purely on samples. The same goes for colours, patterns, and other design aspects--samples just won't cut it. Instead, take advantage of a visit to a display home in order to see the materials in person and in use. You'll be amazed how a certain carpet or paint colour looks completely different when it is spread across a whole room instead of confined to a single square. You should also look things like cabinets, banisters and railings, and windows in order to check them for sturdiness and durability. If the house has a basement, check for any tiny cracks, dampness, or other telltale signs of a structural flaw caused by the contractor, the materials, or even the home design itself.

After visiting a display home, you should have a better idea of what you want to include in your own new home. Don't be afraid to ask questions!
