I got so tired of scrolling through options that I just plopped a couple of items in there to visualize the space. Eventually, I felt embarrassed by the duckling I’d created. The room looked as if I was trying to re-create a West Elm showroom by memory using only stuff I can get from a local Walmart. I had to move on.
Trying to stretch as much of my budget as possible, I first tried a few free services for modeling my soon-to-be home. Some light Googling led me to Roomstyler, a 3D rendering tool for mocking up rooms and furnishing them with select furniture pieces from a catalog. This seemed like a good start for envisioning how we could lay out some of the items that would make the move with us.
Havenly starts with a style quiz where you select photos of rooms you like and answer a few personality questions. You can select the level at which you want to be involved in the process, or say screw it and let your designer take the wheels. Then, you’re presented with a few color schemes and mood boards to rate, before you’re asked to upload photos of the room and any relevant inspiration pics. All this information allows Havenly to match you with an in-house designer that best suits your style and needs.
Happen to have your heart set on something special; a rear master suite, a 3-car garage, a double sized walk-in-robe? Our new home designs are flexible so you don’t have to be. Each of our house plans can be customised to suit your lifestyle, turned into right or left designs, or built as-is if you have fallen head over heels with a particular floor plan.
Sure, our new home designs are among the best in Perth, but the real magic happens when you turn the key and start living amongst the smartest extras, inclusions, and upgrades in town. Because every new home designed and built by Smart Homes for Living is decked out with high spec inclusions. As standard! So you don’t have to fork out any extra to get a feature rendered front, Colorbond roof cover, Deluxe 900mm stainless steel kitchen appliances – the list goes on.
Some categories would also randomly disappear. A look under home entertainment did not offer anything resembling at TV I could stick into the room for a visual, even if it wasn’t my exact model. And I couldn’t find a single art piece to place on the wall to create any kind of interest in the room.
