BuildingRenovationsTips and Advice

In the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, the quest for tranquillity within our homes has become more paramount than ever. We believe in curating spaces that resonate with your individuality and style – spaces that transcend fleeting trends and become an integral part of your story. Our renovations not only honour the past but also pave the way for a future where new memories are crafted.

Maximising Value, Enhancing Flow

As Perth’s leading home builder, our commitment to creating homes with increased liveability and flow has consistently shown results. Take, for instance, the case of a $800k-valued house transformed through a $250k renovation, resulting in a revaluation of an impressive $ 1.4 million*. As Cameron Lade, the Group General Manager of Summit Homes Group, states, “We’ve seen the transformative power of renovations in maximising both the value and functionality of a home.”

2024 Design Trends: A Glimpse into the Future

As we enter 2024, Summit Homes Group is thrilled to share our predictions for the upcoming design trends, each curated to align seamlessly with your lifestyle.

Art Deco Resurgence

Art Deco is still very on-trend. Characterised by geometric patterns, bold jewel tones, and opulent material palettes, this design style brings an era of sophistication and decadence.

Contemporary Elegance

The Contemporary trend, bridging the gap between modern and minimalist aesthetics, promises a slightly eclectic and continuously forward-thinking design.

Australian Coastal Hamptons

An evolution of the classic Hamptons style, this trend embraces the Australian coastal lifestyle with whites taking centre stage. As explained by Provincial Home Living, incorporating “natural materials such as wood, rattan, bamboo and linen” “create a warm and organic feel that complements the coastal theme.”

Mid-Century Revival

Clean lines, organic materials, and vibrant colours define the mid-century trend, incorporating elements of minimalism and a retro aesthetic.

Modern Farmhouse

According to The New York Times,  Modern Farmhouse is “a modern twist on the classic American farmhouse, takes the clean lines of contemporary design and accents them with industrial finishes, all while giving a nod to what is considered homey or rustic.”

Achieving Lush Opulence

If you’re aiming for a more luxurious look in your renovation, consider these savvy tips:

  • Floor-to-Ceiling Tiles: Create an illusion of spaciousness by using the same floor and wall tile in wet areas.
  • Increased Ceiling Heights: Although it adds to the cost, higher ceilings open up spaces, providing a sense of luxury and openness.
  • Zoning Your Home: Create unique flow and space by intelligently zoning different areas of your home.

Colour Palette Extravaganza

Move over white walls and grey – 2024 is about embracing a ‘more is more’ mentality. Inspired by trends in 2023 and TV series like ‘The Block’, homeowners are finding their unique style with vibrant colours, wallpapers, and textures. Cream, peach hues, terracotta, arches, greens, emeralds, and mustards are all the rage.

Embracing Wood in Style

Wood continues to reign supreme in 2024, with a shift towards darker hues. Warm wood tones and textures remain key for a cosy and inviting atmosphere regardless of your design preference.

Kitchen Chronicles

The evolution of kitchen design continues in 2024:

  • Soft Wood Cabinets: Expect more soft wood selections, bringing texture into kitchen spaces.
  • Maximalist Boldness: Strong colours, uniform upper and lower cabinets, and matching tiles are gaining popularity.
  • Trendy Tapware: Brushed nickel and gold tapware are still in Vogue, with a tip to choose premium finishes for longevity in high-use areas.


As we delve into 2024, Summit Homes Group invites you to join us on a journey of crafting timeless spaces that tell your story. Let your home be a canvas where the past, present, and future seamlessly intertwine, creating a sanctuary that is truly yours. Cheers to a year of design innovation and creating spaces that stand the test of time.
