In this world of Social Media and constant comparison, it seems we are all in the pursuit of perceived perfection. We are bombarded with beautiful, aspirational images of everything from food, to homes and holidays – but is it real? Is there such thing as the ‘perfect’ new home? From our perspective, your perfect new home is the one that is perfect for YOU and YOUR lifestyle right now. Seeking perfection means something different to everyone, and our aim at Spectrum Homes is to understand and deliver on ‘your perfect’. Building a new home for the first time can be a [...]
Winter has finally arrived on The Gold Coast – well our tropical version of winter at least! Even though the evenings have a chill in the air, a well designed outdoor room or alfresco areas can be used all year round. The temperature or weather shouldn’t determine how or when you can entertain or enjoy all the features and benefits of your new home! There are a few important things to consider when planning your outdoor room. The weather obviously has the single greatest impact on how and when you use any outdoor space in your home. Considering elements such as shade, [...]
It may sound good to have a ‘lifetime’ structural guarantee on a house or a ‘30 year guarantee’ but it’s really important to understand what this really means. In order to deliver peace of mind and to remain compliant with building standards and codes, you can be fairly sure that a structural guarantee is given - but it’s always best practice to check. Independent inspections by the relevant authorities at various levels, from pegging out the site to foundation to roofing and electrical installations, serve to ensure a suitable standard is maintained throughout construction for the eventual safety of the homeowner.

The first room that either sells a property or puts potential home buyers off is the kitchen - simply because it’s a place where people spend a great deal of time and they want to spend that time in a bright, cheerful, modern and fresh environment. Kitchen Bonding There have probably been more family heart-to-heart discussions in the kitchen than anywhere else in the home, as meals and food preparation tend to be the central gathering point for most families – especially at the beginning and end of days. Kids love bonding with parents over cooking and it’s also the place [...]
Custom designing a home means working from the ground up on a home that is suited to your particular needs rather than trying to fit your lifestyle into a pre-existing or standard home design. Benefits of Custom Design Custom designing your home means it can be built to suit the parcel of land – taking full advantage of the prevailing winds, the movement of the sun from summer to winter and the views. By using these natural factors it means you will be able to reduce energy costs in heating or cooling the home. A bespoke home can be designed around [...]
Have you been to a multitude of display homes, and whilst each home has something different that you like, no one home is ticking all your boxes? Do you feel that you’d like to combine the best of what you have seen and design a home that better suits your lifestyle and needs? A custom designed home (or a modification of an existing plan) might be the answer you’re looking for. Matching your Home Design to your Lifestyle Deciding to build (and design) a new home can be a daunting task. With so many options, features, styles, fixtures, fittings and finishes [...]
Building your own home is probably going to be one of the biggest investments of your life, but well worth it for the chance to establish yourself in the property market and the freedom of owning rather than renting. You get to call the shots on the style of the construction, its situation in relation to the site, how many rooms you have, and the choice of fixtures and finishings. There are certain aspects to consider before commencing work with your building contractor to ensure a hassle free experience. Established Contractor Established contractors will have a number of building plans they [...]
Australians have fallen in love with the Hamptons inspired style that suits our Gold Coast weather and lifestyle so perfectly. The Hamptons is composed of small communities strung out along the beaches near Southampton and East Hampton on the South Fork of Eastern Long Island in New York State.

The Hamptons elegant beach house look is taking The Gold Coast by storm – it just makes sense. We are coastal, we [...]

Spectrum Homes love a challenge and wants to help you maximise the potential of you block. If it can be built on, we will build on it! 1. Working with the site, not against it. Sloping blocks can take a bit more management, there might be excavations, retaining walls and footings to deal with. This site in Willowvale, has a 5-meter cross fall and could easily scare most project home builders away, but we worked closely with engineers to achieve the best results for our clients. When approached appropriately, the result can be much more interesting than a regular flat block. [...]
