How to Incorporate Luxury Design into your Granny Flat
Building a granny flat is an exciting opportunity to design something new and unique. It is like painting with a blank canvas – the possibilities are limited only by your imagination!
Although often used as a budget-friendly option to create more space in your home, a granny flat can be anything but budget-looking if you want to go all out and make it something special. You can splurge on architectural features, luxury finishes and lavish details to turn your granny flat into a masterpiece.
Step One: Planning
The first step to successfully incorporating luxury design into your granny flat happens in the planning phase. When you start dreaming about your granny flat, make a list of what you want it to look like and what you want it to include.
Think about the different styles that you like, make a vision board, even start a Pinterest board with reference images of the things you like. Do some research and see what ideas are out there that you like. A great place to find these ideas could be by looking at various award-winning designs to see what new features are being used by the industry leaders.
Finding these ideas in the early stages of planning makes incorporating them much easier, rather than building the flat and then trying to elevate it later.
Step Two: Find Your Team of Experts
If you’re not especially creative or don’t find joy in dreaming up innovative designs – fear not! This just means that you need to find a designer and builder that can help find you something oozing with luxury that you will love.
If you are working with an experienced and specialist granny flat builder, they will be able to give you ideas of how to take your granny flat to the next level with modern styles and luxury features.
Step Three: Choose Your Luxury
Luxury can be translated into many of the different parts of a granny flat. You could look at luxury architectural designs and do something unique with the shape, layout and style of your flat. Or you could consider adding luxury amenities and features like heated floors, smart home technology or a built-in wine bar.
Finishes are another area you can use to add luxury to your granny flat using details like polished concrete floors, stone or marble benchtops and LED lighting to elevate your flat.
Step Four: Find a Specialist Builder
Once you’ve got your designs ready, you need an expert granny flat builder with an eye for detail, a passion for excellence and high workmanship standards to make your vision come to life. Nothing will bring down the feeling of luxury more than poor-quality building and workmanship.
Ensuring your builders are qualified, experienced and use high-quality materials is critical to developing an exquisite, luxury granny flat.
Step Five: Interior Design
Finally, ensure your interior design and decorating gets considered and included in the budget as the last piece of the luxury puzzle. While there is nothing wrong with using budget furniture and upcycled furnishings, your level of lux, class and style will ultimately be affected by what you dress the space with.
If this is not an area of skill for you, you may like to consult an interior designer or do some reading on granny flat interior design tips to help you.
