Looking at the recent industry awards, it shows that wood and white design concept is still trending. These trends are followed when homeowners are making decisions on their home design in Christchurch and this year’s Home of the Year awards by the Registered Master builders showed that two tones are still in fashion.

The award for the best show home was given to a Taupo house with a simple kitchen showing off two tones only. During a gala dinner held at SkyCity, the awards were given including the Home of the Year Supreme Awards. There are 550 total attendees during the event.

The award winning Taupo homes was developed by Penny Homes and these are constructed in the lasted Nukuhau subdivision. It has four bedrooms and three bathrooms.

According to the judges of the Home of the Year awards, show homes such as the Nukuhau are the best way in order for builders to present to the public their talents and skills.

Judges added that the builders along with their design teams were able to create a project that shows of their initiatives when it comes to designing and skills in building. Overall, the judges found the presentation to be very good.

The homes appeal and excellent presentation was also made better by the selected decors and the products used in the construction. The top prizes during the awarding was given to homes located in Wellington and Christchurch.

The award for the Supreme House of the Year was brought home by the John Creighton Builders. The house has 407 square meters space. They also won two other awards, Craftsmanship Award and New Home over $2 million Award, namely.

The judges’ description of the Mt. Pleasant home includes elegant and exciting design. There was smooth flow in the design that leads up to an elevated living area located outdoor. They also complimented how the house and the neighbourhood complement each other.

The concept is expected to be the trend in home design in Christchurch with panels made of aluminium and concrete, flooring made of oak and with a colour theme of black and white.
