As the popularity of urban living continues to grow, the average size of a city house block shrinks. More and more people that choose to live in inner city suburbs often compromise their outdoor space for interior living space.
BALANCING AESTHETICS WITH FUNCTION
Rooftop gardens can be a simple answer; however you begin to limit your options to a fairly flat pitched roof design. If a flat roof fits in with the overall look of your property, that’s fine, but what if a pitched roof design would better enhance your home?
USE CONCEPTS THAT WILL GIVE YOUR HOME THE X FACTOR
Have you considered using transparent roof and ceiling panels to let in all the light you require to create an indoor garden?
An indoor garden is an ideal way to weave your outdoor environment into your interior design.
Allowing your neighbourhood’s unique character to seamlessly be drawn inside your home is another way to optimise your creativity.
By including thoughtfully placed custom windows and café doors into your house design, you can invite the unique heritage of your streetscape into your property.
YOUR ROOF IS A MAJOR DESIGN ELEMENT THAT DRAMATICALLY EFFECTS THE LOOK AND FUNCTION OF YOUR HOME
Consider also, how your roof design and choice of roofing materials can either impact or limit your design choices. Metal roofing materials dramatically increase your ability to create the design of your dreams. Do your research and search the limitless resources that are available to you.
Finally enjoy the creative process and love the home you create.
