We’ve been building Mt Maunganui lifestyle homes for more than 30 years and we’d love to share what we’ve learned along the way. We recommend you begin collecting photos, magazine cuttings and ideas, using an old school scrapbook, mood board or Pinterest boards. If you see a home design you like, take a shot and keep it on your wishlist. Plus, remember that the finer design details (such as kitchen design) may have an impact on your build. For instance, if you want a scullery in your kitchen, you’ll need to start visualising that now, so your architect and builder can include it in the concept drawings and building plan. Need to bounce some ideas around? Give us a call. We can also direct you to a number of designers we recommend.
