Building a new house can be stressful and there are so many things unforeseen things that can and often do, go wrong. Before you begin building a new house, it’s important to be sure that the process will be as smooth as it possibly can be.
When clients of I For Style were having a new house built in Sawtell on the mid-north coast of NSW a key factor for them in moving forward was that they had the right professionals onboard who they could trust from the planning stage right through to the completion of the project. The process of having their new house built was a smooth one and although there were some inevitable challenges along the way, the clients were very happy with the progress throughout the build and the gorgeous end result.

A crucial factor to the success was the fact that all the right boxes were ticked well before the new build commenced. That is the benefit of having an experienced Interior Designer on board who knows what needs to be in place, the important timelines and who has a team of trustworthy trades to work on your home.

I For Style’s part in the process of this new home design has been the selecting all the finishes and colours both inside and out. New home colour selection is so important to achieve the best possible result and requires working closely with the client, helping them define how they want their new house to look, the ambience they wish to create and how it needs to function.
