Fireplace Options For Your Renovation

Whether you prefer a gas or wood burning fire, you will find a wide range of opinions regarding the look and feel, cost, maintenance, convenience, and environmental responsibility for both fireplace options. The team at Style Plus take a quick look at wood burning and gas fires.

Fireplace Options

Woodburners

Modern woodburners are highly energy efficient, produce limited air pollution and use a form of renewable energy.

Burning wood is carbon-neutral because it is a renewable resource. However, burning wood cleanly is the key to making it enviro-friendly.

The large amount of radiant heat produced by woodburners suits many of our New Zealand houses. This is especially the case for the older, poorly insulated and draughty homes with high ceilings. A properly sized and installed woodburner can heat the whole home.

Gas Fires

The advantage of a gas fire is that it provides instant heat and has the look of an open fire, without the danger of the open flame or the need for firewood. Additionally, gas is more energy efficient than electricity (emitting less greenhouse gas emissions than burning it to make electricity in power stations).

A gas fire provides both radiant and convection heating, with the radiant heat warming objects in a room and the convection heat circulating the warmed air…

Design & Build

All of our projects start by creating a comprehensive brief with our clients. When we design your new home, we consider how best to connect the spatial design with your lifestyle. For example we ensure that all your concerns, wants and wishes are noted so that the final design enables your new home and all its elements within to work together seamlessly.

If you decide to embark on building a new home, the following are a few pointers:

As you plan your new home, one of the first questions to consider is whether working with a custom design & build company such as Style Plus or a higher volume home builder is the best choice for you.

A volume home building company simultaneously builds multiple homes based on a collection of home plans – cookie cutter approach. Buyers personalise their home by selecting product categories such as appliances, cabinets, countertops and flooring from a menu of options offered by the builder.

A custom design & build company such as Style Plus typically creates a one of a kind, unique home that offers an even greater range of design choices. Clients who wish to have a home purpose built for their needs and lifestyles often decide to work with a design & build company.

Custom Home Builders

The difference in approach between custom design & build and volume home builders will help determine what product and design choices you will make and also shape how you and your builder will work together.

Spa Room Design With Style

Spa room design often starts with a desire to relax in your own environment. Your bathroom offers you a private space where you can take a relaxing shower or warm bath. So, why not turn your bathroom into an at home spa room with style?

A while ago the health Spas were the only place where we can find a special relaxation environment. However, with the ongoing developing technologies, the ability to create a home spa space is simply a matter of a budget and planning.

SPA ROOM SPACE

Today the possibilities for a home spa design are endless. It basically depends on your style, life style and design inspiration.

Considering how much time we spend in the bathroom over the course of our lives, it is in our own interest that we transform that room into a personal sanctuary – a spa room. After all, if the one room where you cleanse does not make you feel completely rejuvenated inside and out, then is it really worth wasting a part of your life in there?

The spa room would be a retreat where we can unwind, release those relaxing scents, and relax in peace.

SPA ROOM INTERIOR DESIGN

• Conceptualisation – Concept Design

Spa Bath

Spa baths have always been a great way to unwind and relax. Whether it be a spa bath for one or a corner spa bath for two.

For a master bathroom with space to spare you could make it an intimate transition to another space area with a spa bath.

There are a variety of spa sizes to choose from, from small two person spa’s to the larger spa. It is important to think about who will be using your spa and plan accordingly.
