by | Nov 16, 2023

When beginning the journey of designing your new home or cottage you may have doubts as to how your new build will look and feel. You don’t want to be left with an empty white box; you want a space that feels lived in, full of character and your personality. We understand the importance of infusing your new build with character to create a space that truly reflects your unique style and preferences. In this article, we’ll explore some valuable tips and ideas for incorporating character into your new build.

Collaborating with Our In-House Design Team

One of the distinctive features of working with Pine Creek Homes is our in-house design team. We’re here to help you develop your vision and guide you through the design process. We understand that every client is unique, and we take the time to listen to your ideas, inspirations, and preferences. Our design experts can create 3D renderings of your exact build, allowing you to visualize the finished product before construction even begins. This step is essential in ensuring that your new home or cottage reflects your character and style.


2. Architectural Elements

Architectural Elements
Architectural elements play a significant role in defining the character of your home or cottage. Incorporating customized features such as exposed beams, arched doorways, or custom mouldings not only adds character, but also adds interest to your design.

Architectural elements can also be considered in the exterior design of your build to match your unique style. Taking into consideration rooflines, exterior finishes, windows, and doors will help you achieve your desired outcome. Whether you prefer a modern, traditional, or rustic look, our team can help you select the right elements that resonate with your character.


3. Designed Walls & Ceilings

Designed Walls & Ceilings
Often forgotten or overlooked is the possibilities of incorporating character through the walls and ceilings of your build. Adding a tray ceiling detail, tongue and groove pine, or mouldings can add another level of finish that can really enhance the character of your new build. Even something as simple as changing the paint colour can make a difference.


4. Interesting Lighting

Interesting Lighting
Light fixtures are another great way to incorporate character and your unique style into your build. Lighting is a very important aspect of creating function within your design. It is essential to be able to perform tasks of everyday living. While the function of lighting is important, it is equally important to select fixtures that compliment your space. Think of it as jewellery for your eyes and have fun!


5. Personal Touches
