An inside look at the award-winning Trend display home
At Atrium Homes, we are justifiably proud of The Trend, on display in Burns Beach. It picked up the MBA award for Best Display Home ($550,000 – $650,000); and was a finalist in the MBA Overall Display Home of the Year.
The Trend is a beautiful home that is proving particularly popular with families. It has a smart, contemporary street elevation that suits its location in the newer beachside suburbs, with its multi-toned acrylic render in pale neutrals and feature columns in stainless-steel – a coastal favourite because of its resistance to the harsh seaside weather conditions.
It also offers excellent separation – an important consideration with families, especially those with older children. We created a floorplan that puts the master suite and study downstairs, separate from the children’s bedroom and living space upstairs. This is also a popular option for downsizers, who can live self-contained on one level and only use the upstairs bedrooms when grandchildren or guests arrive.
The undoubted hero of the home is the large open-plan living area that spans the entire width of the rear of the home and captures the Trend’s true character. Incorporating a family room, theatre and meals area, it has at its heart a huge U-shaped kitchen, with three wide benchtops integrating it with all the action.
It is a clever layout that means even when you’re on chef duty in the kitchen, you’re still involved in the family activity around you. The kitchen boasts all the must-haves – stainless-steel appliances, an integrated dishwasher and plenty of storage. Sliding doors connect both the meals area and the family room to a spacious alfresco area – with a built-in barbecue ready for those long summer evenings.
Upstairs, the kids’ zone has a generous sitting or activity room, along with three double bedrooms and a bathroom with a double vanity and a bath.
Make a point to visit the Trend soon, and bring the family – you’ll quickly see why Perth families are falling in love with it!
