9. Blur the line between indoors and outIn addition to opening up sightlines to embrace views of your neighbourhood, try doing the same with your own outdoor space if you have some. These floor-to-ceiling glass doors visually blur the line between this home’s interior and exterior to make it feel larger, but that’s not all. Notice how the long joinery element in this living space continues into the great outdoors, and how the timber decking runs in the same direction as the floorboards? These details all help take ownership of this outdoor space, which makes the adjacent indoor space feel larger.

Prep in advanceMost people will make the effort to tidy up their home and backyard before a party, but they won’t necessarily prep their lawns. If you want your lawn to look its best both during and after your alfresco celebrations, it’s vital to put in a bit of prep work beforehand.

Extensions and renovationsIf you’re planning to renovate, consider the costs and amount of work required – particularly in the kitchen and bathroom. Some changes might require council approval, such as removing walls or building a deck, so it’s best to think about any work needed beforehand to avoid disappointment down the track.

Rule 3: Thou shalt not be greedyThe regulation: ‘54.03-3 Standard A5 – Site coverage regulation 411’ Site coverage regulations say that the site area covered by buildings should not exceed the maximum site coverage specified in a schedule to the zone, or if no maximum site coverage is specified in a schedule to the zone, this should not exceed 60 per cent.Translation: Simply put, you cannot occupy more than 60 per cent of your total property area. This includes roofed structures such as garages. Solution: Make the most of your outdoor areas by creating indoor- outdoor spaces and having beautiful landscaping. This adds amenity and tranquility to your home and it’s not a bad way to get the kids out of the house as well.Fun-filled and family-friendly backyards
