When it comes to designing your dream home or making alterations and additions to your humble abode, only the best will do. Deb Caruso discovers the benefits of working with accredited architects.

Your home is your haven and the biggest investment you will probably ever make so when it comes to designing your dream home it makes sense to work with the experts.

An architect can turn your vision into reality. Highly-skilled, professionally-trained and resourceful, Architects apply impartial and creative thinking to projects large and small. 

With five years of university training, mandatory practical experience and a registration exam, architects are uniquely equipped to manage your entire design project and see it through the whole construction process to ensure its success. They are more than just designers and they provide services that go far beyond drawings. They add value, whether from maximising light and space, adding functionality, or achieving the best return on your investment. 

Whether you’re building a new home or renovating, architects have more experience in design and construction than any other building professional. 

Not only will they bring your vision to life but they can also save you money through professional advice problem-solving and designing with energy efficiency in mind. 

Working with an architect has many benefits but here’s three you need to know about: 

1. Improve your lifestyle

When you hire an architect, they will get to know you and find ways to improve your lifestyle. Need more storage in your kitchen or more natural light in your bathroom? 

Whatever you need, your architect can help you improve your home and life, often in ways you may never have thought of before.  

2. Take the stress away

Architects are professional problem solvers that know the construction industry inside-out. Their experience and expertise will be your greatest asset. They can handle the paperwork, deal with the builders and source materials so you can get on with living your life. 

3. Save money

An architect’s experience and insight can help stretch your budget and add value to your home. They will find the best materials, finishes, fittings to match your taste and budget. Saving money doesn’t just happen during construction of your home. Architects will maximise the energy efficiency of your home and reduce your energy bills!
