Flexible Home Designs

Still haven’t found the one? Customise your home design and floorplan to suit your lifestyle and block of land.

One of the great things about building your own home is the flexibility to both design the house and craft the floor plan to suit your lifestyle. That’s why, with Plunkett Homes, you can modify our home designs and floorplans to suit your specific needs and wants.

This flexibility extends across everything from house and land packages to turn-key homes and knock-down and rebuild projects. This way, your existing house or block of land is not a barrier to achieving your vision, but rather, a great starting point.

To help you make your desired home design selections easier, we also offer two specifications: Luxe and Lifestyle. Our Luxe specification features a collection of stylish and sophisticated premium fixtures and fittings that will stand the test of time. Meanwhile, our Lifestyle specification works to blend elements of quality and style with affordability. Whatever theme you choose will be carried throughout the interiors and exterior for a cohesive and inspiring new home design.

Perth Home Designs FAQs

How do I choose the house design that is the right fit for me?

When it comes to choosing the right home design for you it’s important to look into elements of lifestyle. For example, people looking to downsize might opt for a single-storey house design whereas a growing family might find more value in a double storey home.

Once you match a house design plan to your lifestyle, it is easier to work out if and how you will customise the floorplan. At Plunkett Homes, we make sure that all your needs are covered.

What is the difference between the Luxe and Lifestyle Elevations?

Part of the new home design process with Plunkett Home is choosing between the Luxe and Lifestyle Specifications. Each specification has been designed with some key differences.

For example, at the heart of the Luxe Specification are the notions of style and sophistication. Whereas, the Lifestyle Specification works to blend elements of quality and style with value. 

These two fundamental differences play out in a range of different inclusions. With the Luxe Specification, finishes include luxury Westinghouse 900mm kitchen rangehood and cooktop. There is also the choice of two 600mm Westinghouse ovens or one 900mm Westinghouse oven. In the Lifestyle Specification inclusions only incorporate luxury Westinghouse 900mm kitchen appliances.

In both specifications, cabinet work throughout the home is custom made to measurements. However, only the Luxe Specification also allows for built-in robes in bedrooms with mirrored sliding doors. 

It’s also worth noting that the Luxe Specification highlights a modern 1200mm wide entry door complete with omni handle. This again differs from the Lifestyle Specification which allows for a modern 970mm entry door. 

What’s involved in the home design process?

The new home design process is equal parts involved and rewarding. At Plunkett Homes, we guide you through the entire process to ensure that your vision comes to life. 

The process starts by choosing a design style for the home. You can pick from a range of classic and modern styles such as Federation, Hamptons, Mid-Century and even Contemporary styles. 

From there, it’s time to design the floorplan. Depending on the size of your block and your needs, the floorplan could incorporate one or two storeys. 

The next step in the process revolves around specifications. Luxe or Lifestyle are the two options offered by Plunkett Homes and your choice will be reflected in the home’s internal and external fixtures and fittings.

The final step in the home design process is customisation. With Plunkett Homes, you can customise any design to your individual wants and needs. 

What are the main styles and trends for new home designs in Perth right now?

The modern Perth home design balances functionality and style.

Open plan living with seamless indoor-outdoor flow is in high demand, alongside solutions like expansive kitchens, butler’s pantries, oversized garages, and clever storage. There is a focus on flexible spaces for relaxation, entertainment, and work. Larger double-storey designs continue to trend as inner-city buyers maximise smaller blocks.

We’re also seeing more personalised design features being requested – statement elevations with striking materials, higher ceilings with raked or coffered details, and curved elements from arched doorways to rounded walls. Sustainability remains essential, with solar panels, greywater systems, energy efficiency and more being integrated into many new builds.

Overall, modern house designs in Perth mix contemporary aesthetics with smart, eco-conscious functionality.

Are there any orientation or sunlight considerations when evaluating home designs?

Yes, there are some key home design elements you should consider depending on how your block is oriented. North-facing living areas allow the winter sun to enter and warm your home naturally. Covered outdoor areas, alfresco dining and pools should ideally face north too. Meanwhile, the western sun should be blocked to rooms like bedrooms and theatre rooms.
