Since the onset of the pandemic, more people have been working from home than ever, and ultimately spending most of their time there. So now the home must accommodate many other functions beyond what we originally conceived it to be. How can you successfully incorporate your work-from-home space within the layout of your custom home?
You want your custom home to breathe with natural light. Large windows, minimalist design and light-coloured surfaces all contribute to making this happen. That being said, the lighting you choose for your home shouldn’t be forgotten because it can create essential ambience, with form and function working to complement each other.

When designing your custom home, we consider the style of your bathroom to be just as important as the impact of your main entrance. Bathrooms, strangely enough, present a unique design opportunity! From your tub to the taps, mirrors, lighting, and the tiles, here, you can truly express your personal taste in the fine details.
Custom bathroom tiles present an ideal way to add personality to your home at an affordable price. What should you consider when making your choice? Here’s a look at some of the current custom bathroom tiling trends. Let the dreaming begin!
Flooring is the first physical contact you have with the space in front of you. Your eyes may be taking in a visual first impression but setting foot into a home or another building is equally important. We would go as far as to say the right floor can make or break your interiors.
Building a custom home is all about attention to detail and choosing what is perfect for you. If you are keen on interiors trends, hard surfaces are more popular than carpet flooring in 2021. Our team tends to agree. To get you started, let’s look at some of our favourite trending flooring ideas for your custom home.
Do you know what you would include in your brand new custom home? Maybe you’d include a big kitchen with a butler’s pantry or a luxurious ensuite with a deep freestanding tub? Or maybe you’d like a dedicated outdoor entertaining area where you can maximise the water views?
The choice of inclusions for your custom home really is entirely up to you and that includes your outdoor living space as well.
If you’re thinking about building your very own custom home, then you might want to take a look at some of our favourite outdoor living ideas for 2021.
When thinking about designing and building a custom home with a multi-award-winning builder like Oceanview Constructions, your mind may spend more time dreaming up the perfect outdoor spaces, balconies, to-die-for kitchens with all the mod-cons and dreamy master bedrooms. But if you’re building up, what about your staircase?
Your Redlands custom coastal home will probably want to utilise second or third-story height to maximise the potential of a bay view. Double or triple story dwellings will need staircases, but you do not need to build them purely to meet their function. In a custom home, you can create one-of-a-kind feature staircases that really take you to another level (literally).
Here are 6 staircase ideas that you can include in your custom coastal home design!
A home built with you in mind, with your style, taste, and needs, sounds like anyone’s dream home. There are absolutely no compromises and certainly no renovating to add or remove existing features you don’t like. But, we bet if you close your eyes and picture your perfect home right now, you will already be imagining the look, the view, and oh, the space!
For those looking for their dream home, the option to buy an established home, find a lot of land, or renovate their existing home can be a paralysing choice. Read More
When you hear the words coastal home, what do you imagine?
