The utmost easily identifiable aspect of a Kiwi home is having a space that encourages indoor-outdoor flow. It represents the Summer-loving nature of the Kiwi spirit – where New Zealanders want a home that feels connected from the interior to the exterior. Picture walking straight from your kitchen, through your lounge and dining and onto your outdoor living area – it’s divine.
However, when building a new home, people tend to focus on the building itself – the interior. As a result, residential construction projects often become oriented solely on what’s happening inside, rather than outside too. In other words, the interior and exterior need to be considered together. A more holistic approach should be adopted when trying to achieve the desired Kiwi home with indoor-outdoor flow, particularly appealing to those who love to entertain and/or host.
Outdoor living should not be overlooked when planning a new-build or renovation. Ideally, landscaping should be considered to a great extent, being reflected in the overall build cost. Overall, landscaping can add significant value to a property’s value. Get in touch with Korben Homes today about your landscaping desires.
