Top 5 home essentials: Must-have features for modern living

Gold Coast Estate gives you the opportunity to build your dream home. With spacious 4 and 5-bedroom home types reaching up to 596m2, you can design your home space with all the amenities you’ve been dreaming of.

Each room gives our homes comfort and value. As a young family, you may want a kids’ playroom, or perhaps you want to add a home gym to make exercising seamless and easy. Are you ready to turn your dream home into a reality? The process of building your ideal living space is an opportunity like no other, where you have the chance to shape your environment precisely to your desires. Here are the five home essentials you need in your home:

Laundry room

Laundry tends to clutter up the living area in most homes. A dedicated laundry room is proving a life-saver for modern families. Clothes can be neatly washed, dried and folded all in one private area. You may also choose to add extra storage space in your laundry room for storing household cleaning goods. Homes that have a laundry room are appealing to a universal audience and have proven to increase the value of your home.

Kitchen island

Whether you’re entertaining friends or prepping school lunches, the kitchen island is a must-have. It serves as the heart of the kitchen, offering an additional workspace for meal preparation, a gathering spot for family and friends, and abundant storage underneath. This multifunctional feature enhances the kitchen’s efficiency, allowing for fast, production-line cooking. The kitchen island often serves as a design statement, as it can be customised to complement the overall style of the kitchen.

Outdoor patio

We all want a serene oasis for relaxation on a hot summer’s day. As indoor-outdoor living becomes a natural part of how we live, your patio is the extension of your living space. Creating a stylish and comfortable space where you can braai with the family, read a book or chat with neighbours. Enjoy al-fresco dining, connecting with nature, fresh air and all-year round use in Durban’s warm climate.

Luxurious bathrooms

Imagine double sinks and vanity mirrors, a large bathtub and a walk-in shower. Luxurious, spacious bathrooms are in and it’s all about valuing your home time and taking care of your wellness. You can choose to integrate smart technology with a sound system or smart touch light-up mirrors. Luxury bathrooms often boast beautiful design elements, from elegant fixtures to exquisite tiling and lighting, enhancing the overall aesthetics of your home.

Walk-in closet

A walk-in closet offers a range of benefits that can greatly enhance your daily routine and overall organisation. It’s no wonder homeowners are building these into their masterplans. Walk-in closets provide the opportunity for organisation, storing large collections of your clothes and even creating mini displays out of your favourite pieces. These organisational gems can make getting ready a seamless process each morning. Building a walk-in closet is definitely a win in any homeowner’s book.
