It’s been a great 2016 at Domination Homes, and we are just as excited for 2017.

The building industry in 2017 is set to see some tough times ahead, especially now with the recent news of the Builton Group collapsing it is more important than ever for prospective clients to pick your builder carefully, it is hugely important that you’re dealing with a builder who has been around for a long time. We have been around since 1981. Our company has financial stability as well as land and building assets so you can be assured that we can see your property build all the way through to completion.

Domination Homes in 2017 are going to be working on a number of large and important developments as well as many client homes.We are working on our beautiful new Applecross display home, together with another two-storey home being built behind it. The display home is a stunning, elaborate two-storey home, with finishes to the highest quality, a sensational master bedroom with huge dressing room and ensuite.

The design has incorporated a scullery again as we did with the Port Coogee display. The scullery has been hugely popular with our clients and Domination Homes were the first builder in the Port Coogee area to have a scullery in their display home. As a trend-setter in the building industry we have noticed a lot of builders have followed us with this design. What we have done for the new display is revamp the scullery and have incorporated it into the new design as well as an exciting winestore incorporated in the design. Very exciting!

This year, we will have a very large presence in the Morley area, including 3 individually designed duplexes (6 individual units) on Halvorson road, as well as a large 28 apartment development on Vera Street with the majority of the units having city views, and finally another townhouse development on Vera Street for a client. We have 7 apartments on Haddrill Street in Bayswater, close to the soon-to-be upgraded train station in Bayswater, which will have the Airport Link running through. This will transform Bayswater into a popular boutique type area much like Leederville and Subiaco.

Another exciting project we are working on in 2017 is our new company image. A lot of our homes are starting to go towards a more contemporary look which is timeless, which has inspired us. With the calibre of home we are delivering, Domination Homes has come a long way with its quality control, with designs, so in line with this we will launch a new logo as part of our re-brand.

In terms of the trends that we are seeing in homes this year, clients are now catering for smaller compact lots with smaller frontage homes, more narrow lot homes which we have plans and specifications for. Due to smaller block sizes, people are looking to minimize overall space while trying to make better use of the space that they have to work with. With smaller spaces we are seeing cleaner lines, light colours, no clutter. Everything has a purpose and place in these new homes. Industrial colours are still being used such as greys. Retro has been in, and is still in, however it looks like it is at the end of its popularity. The new look is moving back to very clean white surfaces, lots of open spaces and trying to maximize visual space.

There is a lot on the horizon for the company this year, and we are looking forward to sharing our triumphs with you.
