The kids have moved out and you're looking forward to a new phase of your life 🛫⛳🎳🎣🥂.

A big part about this evolution might be downsizing your home now that you don’t need so much space (or you want to use the space in a different way). There are many benefits of choosing a newly built house for your new home – you get the best of both worlds.

Benefits of downsizing to a new & smaller home

Less maintenance all round

Less maintenance all round

A smaller home and garden will mean less time cleaning and less upkeep. Less housework makes it easier to lock up and leave for long weekends or trips across the world.

Lower bills & costs

Lower bills & costs

Bigger homes naturally come with higher mortgages, utility bills, and maintenance costs. Newer homes are also built to an improved standard that is more energy-efficient. Plus, there's no need for expensive renovations.

Suit how you want to live now

You may no longer need all those bedrooms, but you might want an office space for your hobbies, or a large entertaining area for when family and friends are over. Your priorities and lifestyle come first - that's the benefit of building a home for your life now.

The more space we have, the more we use

The more space we have, the more we use

When we have a few extra rooms, we end up filling them with stuff. Downsizing means you can purge the clutter, which can be win-win; The more stuff you have, the more time and effort it takes to maintain, repair, and replace. You've got better things to do than clean rooms that barely get used.

What to consider
when downsizing

So, what does your next home look like? Less zones, more open plan spaces or a great kitchen.

Some design features to think about:

  • Flexible spaces that can serve more than one purpose, such as an office, studio or hobby space – or turn into a guest bedroom if you need.
  • Sliding doors and lots of windows help homes feel light and open.
  • A main bedroom, well-appointed ensuite and walk-in robe that feels a little luxe.
  • Plenty of storage space for the golf clubs, tennis racquets, surfboard and bicycles.
  • Build methods that are great for energy efficiency and keeping the house cool in summer, and warm in winter.
