Tap-ping into the Latest Trends!

Modern or classic, chrome or matte black, choosing tapware can be a true test. Whether you’re doing a complete home renovation, or just fixing up the fixtures in your bathroom or kitchen, here’s a summary of the latest trends to tap into and tips for choosing your tapware from Nick Swan of leading tapware and shower brand, Methven.

Hot Tap Trends
Organic, round styles and shapes continue to be the most popular designs as compared to the more geometric, sharper designs. What is increasingly becoming more popular is the combination of the two with a square foundation softened at the edges and complemented with curves. Such a soft square design has greater versatility in design as it has the ability to complement both round and square aesthetics.

Small, petite tapware is having a moment as trends move to a more minimalist aesthetic which demands simple, subtle choices.

Chrome continues to be the most popular finish followed by Matte Black. However, what we are seeing is almost a blending of these two most popular finishes with Graphite and Gun Metal growing in popularity and demand.

Stainless steel is proving more and more popular not only for the industrial finish and design, but also for its sustainable properties. Long-lasting and hard-waring, stainless steel can be re-purposed for reuse and reconditioning and devoid of any lead it also helps preserve water.

Statement Styles
A high-rise or vessel basin mixer over a stand-alone basin can make a real statement in a bathroom. It also gives you the opportunity to get creative with tapware placement. Traditionally the tap would be placed at the back of the basin – however with a high-rise/vessel mixer you can place it to the side of the basin.

Wall mounted basin tapware can be an easy way to create a statement in a bathroom. With it being wall mounted, the tapware is typically positioned higher and closer to the eye line – catching people’s attention and drawing their curiosity.

When selecting kitchen tapware, look for pull-out or pull-down sink mixers which add a touch of class to the space. Inspired by industrial kitchens, these types of mixers provide a higher degree of moveability in and around the sink as-well-as looking striking. Look for the Culinary range from Methven.

Tapware To Last
A round minimalist design in a chrome or metallic finish will stand the test of time. Chrome and metallic finishes will always be the most popular finishes as they pair with everything – meaning you can update your bathroom design and styling without having to change your tapware. Look for simple classic shapes which are unlikely to date as trends change. For example, Glide & Blaze tapware collections from Methven.

3-piece tapware can be another safe option, heralding back to a traditional style of tapware. It can also save time if you don’t want to re-arrange plumbing fixtures you can always retro-fit to existing pipework with new spindles and tapware to refresh a design.

Top Tapware Tips
Gather options together, take your time and do your research. Create a mood board or a scrapbook of design ideas and products. Then go and find those (or similar) products on display so you can feel the quality and get a sense of how the product feels as you use it.
Once you are happy with the basin tapware selected, it will be part of a family or range which you can use to complete your bathroom so the design looks cohesive. The basin mixer is typically the foundation of a tapware collection.

Once tapware has been decided upon, look for complementary showers and accessories to complete your look. Add a touch luxury with shower spray technologies such as Aurajet®, VJet® or Satinjet® from Methven.

Perfect Pairings
A free-standing basin will require either a wall mounted tapware set or a hob(deck) mounted high-rise/vessel. A wall mounted tapware set can be a great way to keep your vanity bench top clear & allow space for other items.

Consider the spout length of the tapware selected in regards to the basin itself. If the spout is too long or too short, it can result in water splashing out of the basin. Ideally, water should be directed towards the waste/drain. Getting this marriage of basin drain and spout length right can be troublesome, so look for mixers and spouts which have adjustable stream aerators. These allow an extra bit of water direction control to reduce the chance of splashing.

If you are selecting a hob or deck mounted basin mixer, ensure the fixing underneath is solid. Look for ‘twin-stud’ mounting as opposed to ‘single-stud’. Single studs can easily loosen after use.

Think about the size of both basin and the tapware. If possible, they should be selected together so they can be proportionately sized to match each other.

A Modern Tone for the Future of the Average Australian Home

Do you love the romantic notion of living in a historical architecturally rich home? Well, according to the findings of a James Hardie survey, Australia’s younger home owners are preparing to end the country’s love affair with brick houses.
The findings of the study indicates that of all the people surveyed who have built their home in the past five years, or are currently planning to do so, only one third preferred the traditional brick cladding or veneer facades found in quintessential Aussie properties. Meanwhile 44% preferred to use a mix of cladding types and styles including horizontal, vertical and panel arrangements. This trend clearly points toward a preference for modern, seamless design.
According to Cathleya Buchanan, Australian Marketing Director at James Hardie, data shows that almost one in three (31%) new builds are being undertaken by people under 30. These younger home owners are most likely to want a contemporary appearance that mixes a number of building materials and profiles to ensure their home doesn’t look dated in the near future. 
However, unlike other styles such as Queenslander and Hamptons, this modern movement encompasses a number of looks. The term modern is used in housing in the same way that pop is used in music, it’s not just one thing and is constantly evolving. The term is used for anything from updated versions of established trends like ‘modern coastal’ and ‘Mid-Century Modern’, through to ‘Minimalist’ and ‘Designer Mixed Cladding’ aesthetics. There is a clear preference leaning to clean, angular lines, monochrome palettes, cantilevered second levels and open plan spaces, while moving away from detailing such as eaves and balustrades. These basic tenants of modern design drive toward new materials like Premium Fibre Cement Cladding, which can be used to create strong, striking shapes. It’s also lightweight making it suited to large open-plan spaces and second stories and overhangs.
While the market is softening following the 2015 building boom, there are still a large number of new builds compared to historic standards. According to Australian Bureau of Statistics figures there were a record number of homes under construction in NSW in 2018, while Victoria was marginally below its own construction record so while numbers have and will likely continue to fall, there are still a considerable number of projects being planned or finalised in 2019.
The trend, which will affect approximately one million new build homes is being driven by higher value projects, with more home owners working with an architect or designer (61%) requesting an individualised modern look, compared to a those using a volume builder (44%).

When asked to choose the most important factor of their project four out of five (80%) prioritised the look of their property over the cost (70%). However, it’s important to know how to communicate your aesthetic to your architect or builder.

According to Cathleya, we all want a home that reflects our tastes and lifestyles, which is why it’s important to know how to communicate what you want, for example the research shows that what most home owners call ‘modern’ is referred to as ‘contemporary’ by architects and building professionals. It’s also important to specify the right materials, with two thirds (65%) of young home owners citing this as an important part of their project.
The move away from the brick look is being driven by a preference for building products that help create architectural design motifs. Modern looks require more design variation using modern materials, such as James Hardie’s range of Premium Fibre Cement Cladding, including the large panel format of Matrix Cladding, or the vertical lines of Axon Cladding. Combining these and other profiles can deliver striking features like floating walls, overhangs, and protective cantilevers that define a contemporary style.
Considering the longevity of the property when defining your vision is also very important. It is important to avoid focusing on the finished home, without thinking about its longevity. No one wants to deal with ongoing maintenance, which is where Premium Fibre Cement Cladding adds another benefit as it resists flaking, warping or swelling, as well as fire and damage from termites and moisture.

Beyond Renovation - When to Consider a Knock Down Rebuild Project!

With renovation-based television shows such as The Block and House Rules consistently attracting audiences all around Australia, it appears that the renovation bug is far from leaving our system. Instead, the scope of renovation work is expected to rise, with the number of houses in Australia aged 30 - 35 years set to increase, leading to the requirement of more renovation work.

While renovating a space an option for consideration is a complete knock-down rebuild project. These projects involve the demolition of a space/ house, followed by the complete rebuild with a fresh, new design of your choosing. If you are looking for a change in your living or working area, and are not sure whether a knock-down rebuild project is the right call, this is the article for you. Whether you seek a Melbourne or Sydney knock down rebuild, here are some questions you should consider to determine whether or not this journey is for you. 

Property Location
When looking for a new home or office space, a knock down rebuild project could be considered. This is because often we find suitable locations for our new homes or offices, but the current structure  may not be completely suitable or appropriate for family size or commercial business needs. In these instances, a knock down rebuild will allow you to maintain the existing benefits of location, while also giving you power over the structure built there.
Location plays a part in the decision of whether or not you should undertake a knock-down rebuild of the existing structure. If your situation is such that your current house is not suitable to your needs, whether that be age, size or any other factor, then knocking it down and rebuilding it could be a viable option to overcome these problems. 

Project Budget
Another instance in which a knock down rebuild project should be considered is if extensive renovations are required for your existing property. Renovations can be extremely expensive, with the Housing Industry Association reporting that by 2021, the renovations market in Australia will be worth over $35 billion.

Choosing a knock-down rebuild project over renovation works provides an additional benefit; it prevents you from adhering to certain structural restrictions determined by the framework of the existing property. It takes renovation a step further, allowing a complete revamp of the entire property tailored to your specific needs. 

Build Timeline
In each of these cases, it is important to consider the extra time required for a knock-down rebuild project to take place. Prior to any work being done, demolition of the existing property must occur. While this process is relatively quick, the time taken to obtain the required permits can be extensive. Furthermore, after the demolition process has been completed, the rebuild timeline is an important one to consider.

If you have an abundance of time to complete your project, then a knock-down rebuild project should is a great option. If you are short on time, then consider an alternative options such as a smaller renovation project or buying another property.

There are many reasons to consider a knock down rebuild project, with location and renovation requirements only describing a couple. In the end, your home is your own, so make wise and informed decisions regarding its requirements based on your budget.

If you have any questions regarding permits for knock down rebuild projects, visit your state or territory government website, or contact your local council. 

Till next time... good luck with your renovation project!

Tips to Refresh Your Home Every Season!

Your home is a sanctuary, a place where you and your family can feel comfortable, safe and at ease. How you decorate and style your home can go a long way in having a home that feels like a home. You want to ensure that it feels warm, welcoming and inviting. It’s also important that you put your own stamp on where you live so that it reflects your own individual taste and style.

Over time, however, through general wear and tear, your home can look tired and may need a change. It might just need a fresh coat of paint, some furniture to be updated or some new blinds to bring your home back to life and give it a new lease of life.

Let’s take a look at a few simple ways that you can refresh your home without breaking the bank. 

Move Your Furniture Around
You may have given a lot of thought to where you were going to position your furniture when you moved into your home. However, every now and then you should consider rearranging the furniture that you have to give your space a new feel. Try moving the position of some of your key pieces and give the room a new look. This is a very effective way of breathing new life into your space without spending any money.

Change Your Blinds Or Curtains
How you dress your windows can go a long way to completing the overall look and feel of a room. If you have had the same drab blinds or curtains hanging in your windows for years, maybe now is the time to change them out for something new. If you have small windows, a longer curtain can be a great way to make your windows look bigger than they are. For those on a real budget, simply taking your curtains down and having them professionally cleaned can make them look like new. And, if you have seamstress skills you can change the style of your curtains with some simple modifications.

Declutter Your Home
Nothing will refresh your home better than a good spring clean. Remove any appliances from your kitchen counters that you don’t use every day and make your kitchen look bigger right away. Take some time to go through the cupboards and cabinets throughout your home and get rid of any unnecessary clutter. Apply the ‘one year rule’ and gather together anything that you have not worn, used or looked at in the last year, with the exception of family heirlooms, souvenirs and other treasured or sentimental items. With all of these items sold or donated to charity, your home will feel more spacious and better organised.

Update Your Lighting
The way in which you light your home can have a huge impact on the general ambiance of your home. Changing out your old ceiling light fixtures for a more contemporary design can really help with refreshing your home. With such a huge array of lighting options to choose from nowadays, your lighting fixtures can even serve as a feature piece in your living room or bedroom. You might also consider adding table lamps or standing lamps to change how your home is illuminated and make your home feel even more warm and inviting.

Make Your Home Feel Like New
Updating your home doesn’t need to be a huge task. With a few small changes to key areas of your space, you can make your home feel more refreshing and more welcoming when your family and friends come to visit. Put a plan in place and start making small modifications over time. Before you know it, you will have a home that feels like new!

Apart from the above tips you might also want to redo your garden and seek out pest control in Frankston, to ensure that you and your family are the only ones living on your property. Whatever you decide to do, it’s important to take measures every few years to give your home a lift and refresh your space. 

Till next time... have a great week!

Working in a Co-working Space

Having support for any venture can affect how productive a person is, and nowhere is this more evident than the coworking space. The coworking space presents businesses with so many opportunities to get traction in Australia’s diverse business communities simply because it is a community in and of itself. One of the reasons this is true is because, while co-working started out as a place for start-ups to collaborate within a safe space, it has evolved to become a place where social interaction is firmly entrenched in the workspace.

Australia’s version of the coworking space is as equally engaging as the rest of the world in that the mix of sun, sea, and city leisure makes a great cocktail for business success when combined with the workspace. A lot of fun goes on in the coworking space, but make no mistake, a lot of work gets done as well. For those seeking a premium coworking space - Servcorp Australia has one of the best combinations of structured workspace complemented by a convivial atmosphere. Continue reading to learn about the benefits of working in a supportive coworking community.

Finding Mentors
An integral part of developing a business is connecting with others who know more about the business. In a normal workspace environment, these professionals are your colleagues. However, those who own businesses or are self-employed professionals will not get this same interaction unless they are extremely proactive in finding others to connect with outside of their workspace.

The coworking space, alternatively, sets the tone for making all kinds of relationships. In fact, those who choose the popular hot desk as workspace can find themselves interacting with a different person every day of the week if they choose to do so. Furthermore, the professional profile of the coworking space is so diverse that you can find yourself meeting and making friends with people from all fields, ages, and backgrounds.

Belonging To An Inclusive Atmosphere
While the coworking space is a very diverse space, it is also at the same time very inclusive. Many people go about their office search looking for workspace and can do pretty well in this environment, but that is all they get - a place to work. The coworking space presents professionals with the chance to engage professionals from around the world, as Australia’s populations are a mix of both indigenous, European, Asian, and other international cultures. Even the space is very diverse, a concentration on community development is the gel that encourages professionals to participate in the community.

Getting A Chance To Build Teams
The function of the coworking space is so fluid that professionals can meet and be on teams soon after joining the space. Most spaces currently make room for collaboration to occur among teams, whether this space is a designated conference room or whether there are spaces within the open floor plan that are used for collaboration. The chance to work with like-minded people on projects that can potentially raise a platform for other discussions involving your business is priceless and yet another way to benefit from a supportive environment.

Make Life-Long Friendships
The coworking space is a pretty cool space to work. It is one of the most laid-back working environments and one that allows businesses and professionals to potentially work and talk with one another. These opportunities can also help you build a cache of life-long business relationships that can be your support system long after you move onto bigger and better things.


Getting Support And Inspiration
In the end, the coworking space translates into the chance for businesses to create a broad base of support within several industries. More importantly, the coworking community that you create can be a source for both comradery and industry. In the workspace, this perfect combination can serve as inspiration for collaboration within the larger business community. 

Till next time... have a great week!

Top Tips To Brighten Up Your Home!

The brightness of a space can impact so much on how your home looks and feels. It impacts your mood, your guests, and it can even make your home features look dull. However you can give your home the best outlook by investing in the brightness of your home. If you’re not sure where to start, here’s our top tips to harnessing light in your home.

The right curtains and blinds
First and foremost, your windows are of course the most important consideration when discussing light in your home. They are often the only source of light, so you need to be smart with how you frame them. Sheer curtains and plantation shutters are a popular solution for many homeowners. They are white and light in design, and can filter in large amounts of light while still offering privacy. Frame your windows with the right tools, so that you can harness as much brightness into those spaces that need it most. Depending on the build of your home, you can also explore the cost and process of adding ceiling to floor windows or large bay window in your home. This may be an expensive option, but worth looking into.

Skylights
Skylights are one of the first things prescribed by interior designers. Why? They give so much incremental light to homes of all sizes and styles, and they are completely unobtrusive. Artificial light can only take you so far, and it’s not always the right vibe at various points in the day. Talk to a skylight provider today, and discuss your lighting complications to find out where and how many they would recommend for your space. Also remember that luxury additions like skylights are yet another feature that will add value to your home.

Strategic colours
The brightness of your home is absolutely influenced by the colours you choose to paint your home with. Those maroon or navy walls, while bold, will not make your home seem bright - regardless of what time of day it is. Choose a lighter paint palette or neutral colours to inject some brightness into your home. Having white or light walls is an easy way to increase your brightness tenfold, and it provides a blank canvas for you to inject fun and bright cushions, table clothes, couch throws and occasional furniture. 

Balance the weight of a room
So you have lots of light, the right colours, and it still doesn’t feel quite bright enough? You may have a heavy room on your hands. As the old saying goes, less is more. And too many items, furniture and cluttered bookshelves and tables will give your room a weight that is hard to balance. Do a critical assessment of each room, and nominate what can be removed or repurposed. Balancing your space is hard to do because you grow attached to your belongings, but if they are serving no purpose other than sucking the bright life from your home - they may have to go. There is even a movement where people are living without furniture altogether. You can enlist the help of a trusted friend to give you a neutral opinion on what you can stand to lose from the room.

The quest to a brighter home is one that will bring you much joy, and give you a more relaxing space to unwind or entertain your family and friends. For many, this is a lifelong pursuit so don’t be disheartened if your home isn’t too much brighter by the end of the week. Start with your more important rooms first, and then roll your efforts out to the greater home.

Till next time... keep it simple, keep it bright!

Keeping It Clean!

Your family can bring you joy, pride, heartache, shock and fun. But any family, especially one containing children, also brings along its fair share of mess. Hands leave sticky smears on any polished surface in sight, shoes track unmentionable horrors through your carpet, food falls, pots over-boil, and priceless family heirlooms smash on kitchen tiles. Mess is one of those problems that keeps getting worse until you deal with it. With that in mind, here’s some simple advice for keeping things clean.

Have the Right Tools
This one seems self-explanatory, but it’s important to remember that not all appliances are made equal, and it can be worth forking out a little cash for quality mops, brooms, or vacuum cleaners. The idea is to look at speed and ease of use. Life doesn’t stop for a shattered plate, so you need to be able to clean with minimal disruption.

This also covers things like cleaning chemicals, mops, brooms and even rags.

Tidiness
It can be a challenge, but if your home is tidy, things become significantly easier in the cleaning department. It’s not always possible with children, but if everything has a place it belongs then smoothening out the occasional catastrophe becomes simple. This has the added bonus of teaching everyone in the home what the space is supposed to look like. It’s necessary, because it means that it gives big cleaning tasks a clear end point, which is especially helpful when cleaning with children.

Having a place for all your cleaning equipment is especially useful when organising rags, chemicals and sponges. You probably don’t want the rag that was used in the bathroom to double cleaning duty around the kitchen sink or the dinner table.

Get Everyone On Board
Make sure everyone knows what to do when there’s a mess. If a glass shatters in the kitchen, teach your kids to stay clear of the space. If they are a little bit older, maybe they can fetch the broom. Again, tidiness will help. If the broom is always in the same place, then there is no need to form a search party just to find it.

A key part of cleanliness is maintaining a consistent level throughout the home. This means that cleaning duties can be shared out equally, or according to ability in the case of young children. If you are getting your kids to help, remember that there is nothing worse than cleaning up while somebody else is taking it easy.

With this in mind, make sure you openly communicate with other members of the household or, better yet, see if more than one person can tackle each job. A cleaning schedule can be useful for keeping track of those things. Just remember that, despite your best efforts, cleaning as a family is going to require varying degrees of nagging and cajoling. Be prepared to offer desserts, walks to the park, and screen-time in exchange for cleaning.
Having a cluttered, chaotic, messy home is stressful. Everyone want to enjoy their living space, and you can’t do that if you spend all your time shifting mess from one area to another without ever actually dealing with it. 

While responsibility for mess is an important lesson to teach, that responsibility can be shared. Try and think of mess as simply being part of a running household. The home consists of everybody, and so everybody is responsible for maintaining it's cleanliness.

Till next time... keep it clean!

Dreamy Linen To Refresh Your Bedroom For A New Season!

Decorative wall finishes, cosy textiles, new furniture, warm lighting, layered accessories, sprigs of greenery, pretty flowers all play a very important role when freshening up a space. But often it's the very basics like beautiful, dreamy linen that makes a world of difference! It's amazing how refreshed a bedroom can look if you just change the sheets! And a bedroom refresh is important in every season, after all it's one of the most important rooms in your home.

Since summer is well truly here and autumn is around the corner, a bedroom refresh was long overdue. Previously for winter, my bed linen was a collection of warm textiles and moody colours but for my summer to autumn look I chose to be pared back and minimal. White on white is a classic design choice which pairs well with almost every bed type and decor.

For a look that would transition seamlessly from summer to autumn, I went with the Etoile white quilt cover setEtoile white European pillowcasesMartine sterling cushion from Just Bedding. The embossed white on white cover features a classic floral pattern, woven to create a lightly quilted and soft texture that is both minimalistic and luxurious. Matching euros add a hint of luxe and the softly shimmering Martine sterling cushion completes the overall look. All this ordered online from Just Bedding from the comfort of my sofa!

Just Bedding are a leading online Australian retailer of quality bed linen and accessories housing some amazing brands. Which certainly makes them my number one choice for affordable and beautiful bed linen. Just hop onto their website to have a look and be spoilt for choice!
I am so pleased with my bedroom refresh and if I haven't already, then let me profess my love for the stunning Etoile bedding. Love, love, LOVE!

Till next time... add dreamy linen to refresh your bedroom for a new season!
