A wonderful way to make your kit home even better is by creating a few new features out of some of its main elements, because often the difference between an average looking home and somewhere truly great can come down to just a feature or two. The following are a few of the ways you can create extra features within your kit home.


One of the quickest and easiest ways to create an awesome new feature is with paint, and even just by repainting one main area or one new feature wall you can change the look and feel of your place in a dramatic and powerful way. Unless you are a highly skilled painter yourself or simply can’t afford it, have professional painters take care of that paint job for you, as this way your feature walls will draw attention for all the right reasons.


One of the first things you see when you enter a home is the flooring, and more often than not what you see will not be terribly impressive, so if you want to make your kit home a cut above the rest, make the flooring more of a feature. Whether you have polished concrete installed or flooring made from bamboo or cork laid, don’t miss a big opportunity to introduce a fabulous feature to your home.


Comfort is always a big feature in any great home, so make your new kit home a place that is off the charts on the comfort scale. Having comfortable seating is absolutely essential, and the more remote controlled your security system, climate control and home entertainment systems are, the more you will be able to just sit back, relax and unwind.


If you are looking to add a feature to your kit home that will increase your peace of mind as well as your home’s market value, find a way to boost the security levels. Investing in a monitored alarm system equipped with motion sensors and CCTV will have you feeling a whole lot safer in your place, and features such as keyless entry and voice command can make everyday life quicker, safer and easier.

Art for your kit home

The inside of your home is where you can really let loose and express yourself, and there is no better feature to do it with than some high-quality art. Whether you invest in Aboriginal paintings or large wood carvings, the right art in the right place can single-handedly turn your cheap kit home into somewhere extra special, so when you are looking to introduce a few new features, don’t forget about the art.

You’ll be amazed at just how much of a difference a feature or two can make to your kit home, so keep an eye on some of the latest trends in architecture and interior design, and make sure your place is full of features that are considered a bit more cutting edge.
