Auckland residents who are considering house renovations should look ahead on the calendar and consider their options for design. Designing a home for Auckland’s variable weather takes planning, and only a thoughtful design can ensure a great home design for all seasons.
To get started, we’re going to give you a few tips and show you what’s possible.
A Design for All Seasons – the Basics
Depending on your design needs, there are some basic considerations for all-season designs:
- Insulation: Insulation ensures lower energy costs and improves interior and exterior comfort. If you have an outdoor area, you can use a combination of modern outdoor roofing and insulated enclosures to create an effective indoor/outdoor space.
- Amenities: Do you want walk-in wardrobes, cladding, re-cladding, or custom-designed interiors with features like a Jacuzzi, for example? These amenities are excellent ideas, but will also need to be integrated with your existing design.
- Alfresco areas: If you’re looking at an exterior design with an alfresco area, you’ll be interested to know that you can have an all-season outdoor dining and entertainment area [link to blog 1]. The most important issue is to focus on essential comforts, built into your design.
What a Professional Can Do for You
Modern interior design is a real science, but thanks to CAD design and a whole new generation of talented experts, there are no real limits. Modern home design and construction can achieve impressive results that perfectly match your vision.
You’ll obviously have a lot of ideas about extensions, exterior renovations, and perhaps even the cost of adding a second story to a house. To achieve the perfect all-seasons home design, it’s a good idea to have a meeting of the minds with your designers first.

- Talk about on-site issues and needs: All homes are different; each has its own individual issues and requirements. Your builder will be able to assist with problem-solving, technical guidance, and practical solutions.
- Home upgrades: If you have an older home that is in desperate need of modernisation, it’s a good idea to speak to your designer about the future needs of the premises. For example, you can consider upgrading to a smart home or installing new electronic systems and features. These improvements can be incorporated into your overall renovations.
- Extensions: Like other renovations, extensions may involve on-site issues, budget considerations, and, of course, integration with home systems and exterior design. Your designers will be able to assist with custom designs and practical solutions.
