With homeownership changing in Australia and more buyers steering away from the traditional house, there is a clear rise in homeowners choosing the very viable option of a townhouse.
Townhouses have quickly become one of Sydney’s most popular home options, and with good reason. As an investor, you might be considering building townhouses on your property to maximise the value of your land.
A townhouse is a multistorey home that shares at least one wall with an adjacent property. With a townhouse, you have your entrance and possibly even your basement, driveway, garage, and backyard.
Townhouses are often two or three-storeys and have more room than an apartment. Many of these dwellings have modern conveniences like ensuites and open-plan floorplans.
Many townhouses offer a lot more space than what you can find in an apartment. Most have two levels, sometimes three, which means more room to spread out. And they can have as many bedrooms and bathrooms as will fit in the floor plan, just like a single-family house.
A successful townhouse project design carefully balances style, lifestyle, and communal living to create a place where people can love to be.
The decoration of the Master Bedroom should be focused on your personality, your habits, and your needs. It is the place to relax, rest and feel all the positive vibes. Therefore, the result of the design should make your bedroom comfortable, functional, and overall, a pleasant place to spend your time.
When it comes to the design of the bedroom in a townhouse there are some things that you need to take into consideration. For example, if you are keen to update a strata-titled property, you’re limited in what you can and can’t do by your property boundary, building by-laws and many other procedures.
If you would want to renovate your master bedroom or any of the other bedrooms, the townhouse’s interior and exterior are the responsibility of the owner, who is also responsible for the building’s maintenance.
If we are talking about a condo, some of these costs may be covered by the condo association, which is paid for by the member condo fees. So it is important to mention that more recently there has been construction of some condos in the style of townhouses in which many townhouses are part of a homeowner’s association, which, like condo associations, has the authority to impose fees for routine uses and establish rules.
If a homeowner wants to change his townhouse’s exterior appearance, first, he needs to determine whether he is allowed to make the renovations under the owners’ association’s rules. Typically, these rules require homeowners to get permission before making exterior changes. However, townhouse rules generally do not restrict what changes homeowners can make to the interior of the home if the interior changes do not alter the building’s exterior appearance. The local rules might require inspections or permits before and during the renovation process.
If you want to reinvent your bedroom you should keep in mind that although there are no strict rules on how a room should be decorated, the truth is that there are theories that allow you to achieve pleasant and comfortable spaces.
It is recommended that there be two nightstands, two lamps, etc. This will give the feeling of equality and symmetry.
If you want a pleasant, cosy space that transmits tranquillity, choose to use neutral colours. Colours such as beige, white, a range of light blues, greys and sand colours can also bring lighter to the room.
Place the bed in a strategic place, preferably in front of the door and on the side or in front of the window. If you have the space, you can add a desk, a sofa, some armchairs, or a table.
Integrate a natural plant as an accessory and accentuate with light woods, as in the photo. Most importantly, nothing should block your easy access to other areas of the master bedroom, like the closet or bathroom.
If you are considering purchasing and renovating a strata-titled property, the first step is to read the by-laws.
Prior to purchasing a strata-titled property, you need to check first with the strata manager to identify any potential roadblocks. And it is a good idea to look through strata by-laws for any previous renovations made on the property. You might also need to check with your local council and state government to ensure your renovation plans fit within regulations and requirements.
Under most strata titles, the owner’s corporation owns and maintains everything beneath your paint and floorcoverings. This means you own and can renovate everything from the interior walls in.
