Home designs change as people’s needs evolve. Thanks to adaptable design principles, future modifications to living spaces can be executed as minimally invasive as possible. What serves as the bedroom today, for example, might become the dining area tomorrow.
If you are having your first home built by a leading builder in Perth, it would do you well to know a thing or two about adaptable design. In essence, an adaptable house is designed to accommodate the changing needs of its occupants, making potential renovations easier and more affordable in the future.
The concept of adaptable housing is also outlined in AS 4299-1995, which dictates that homes be age friendly. Spaces must be integrated and allow a smooth, quick change should the need arise. The dining and living rooms, for example, can be integrated into a single space.
Ultimately, adaptable housing boils down to practicality. Think about it: Why buy separate furniture and appliances for the dining and living rooms when you can fuse these spaces with a bit of rearranging? Adaptable housing also enables you to make changes as and when unforeseen circumstances occur. Discuss your current and potential needs with your builder, and learn how you can have a versatile home.
