In the ever-evolving world of home design, staying updated with the latest trends is essential. Whether you’re building your dream home on the Sunshine Coast, in Brisbane, or Gympie, knowing what’s popular can help you make informed decisions.

In this blog, we’ll delve into the top home design trends in these regions, shedding light on the features that resonate with the local communities.

Open floor plans: One of the enduring design trends in the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, and Gympie is the preference for open floor plans. Open-concept living spaces offer a sense of airiness and connectivity. At AUSMAR, we understand the significance of this trend.

Its open plan-concept design is perfect for those who value both aesthetics and functionality.

Sustainable materials: Sustainability is no longer a niche concern but a mainstream trend in home design. As people become more environmentally conscious, sustainable materials have gained popularity. AUSMAR has embraced this trend by incorporating sustainable building practices. From energy-efficient lighting to materials with lower environmental impacts, we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint. The Seaforth is designed with sustainability in mind, featuring eco-friendly building materials that not only look great but also benefit the environment.

Local preferences in home design: Understanding local preferences is essential when designing homes in specific regions. In the Sunshine Coast, many residents favour outdoor living spaces that capture the stunning views and natural beauty. In response to this, AUSMAR has designed homes that seamlessly integrate indoor and outdoor spaces. The Seaforth, for instance, boasts a lovely alfresco area that’s perfect for taking in the Sunshine Coast’s idyllic surroundings.

Additionally, many homeowners in Brisbane and Gympie appreciate practicality and durability in their homes. AUSMAR ensures that our designs cater to these preferences by using high-quality materials that can withstand the test of time.
