What feedback do you get from consumers that you wish house builders would concentrate on?

With space at a premium, consumers are concerned with the practicalities of living in a space. Space is needed to live comfortable, to eat, socialise and to accommodate changes from a parent moving in to a growing family.

Getting the basics right and practicalities of the building, (outside and in), from the start/at planning stage are needed. Simple things need to be considered from storing the hoover, to where the ironing board goes.

Architects and builders need to consider storage solutions, and natural light. The space that reflects everyday living and a persons lifestyle, – from extra plugs, (and in the right place), to those with USB ports and having a broom cupboard! will pay dividends.

Access to an outside space too, even if a juilette balcony and you can open the doors to bring the outside in.

Do you think there is a risk of show homes becoming too dressy and putting a buyer off?

Yes, I do, you need to create the balance between being too stylised and an actual home.

It can’t be too niche, as it needs to reflect wide appeal with a bespoke designer touch. This will make it stand out from the crowd. The balance is in having an aspirational show home, but amongst it all the buyer walking round understands the interior and could happily live there too! It is obtainable.

If the show home is too niche, it will alienate the market.

Amongst all, it needs to be accessible, remember a prospective buyer walking in needs to feel that ‘I could live here’ feeling. It feels like home the moment they walk round through the door. They to, need to imagine and envisage their own furniture in the space.
