What to look for in granny flat designs

Designing and building a granny flat can be a big decision, and with so many choices out there, it can be confusing.

To maximise the value you’re getting out of your new granny flat or studio, there are some things you need to consider. For instance,

  • Will your granny flat keep looking good in years to come?
  • Does the granny flat design blend in with your existing home or will it appear out of place?
  • Is your granny flat design customised to sit comfortably on your block and suit your climate, or are you up for a whole lot of extra site and construction costs (and fudging!) to make an off-the-shelf option work?

Most importantly, will the granny flat option you choose meet your needs?

Here at Perfect Square Design, our granny flat designers are masters at cramming in a lot of features into small spaces yet still make it a comfortable, functional and attractive place to be.  Some of the ways we do this include

  • Using design principles to create the illusion of extra space
  • Cleverly tucking in laundries and storage, and
  • Injecting a wow factor with a special feature or by capitalising on your surroundings.

Large granny flat designs and studios

Some jobs or hobbies need a larger space than others, and some people love having guests (and grandkids) come stay.  If that’s you, a Perfect Square Design large granny flat design or ‘up-scaled’ studio may just be the thing.

Don’t settle for the ordinary when you can have something extraordinary.  Our expert granny flat designers will help design your granny flat home or workspace so it’s welcoming, comfy and, most of all, inspiring.

Sustainable granny flat designers

Just because your granny flat may be small, it doesn’t mean it can’t stand tall when it comes to incorporating modern sustainability principles and elements that make it energy efficient.

From smart placement of windows to reduce lighting and airconditioning costs to minimising material waste so more savings land in your pocket rather than in landfill, Perfect Square Design goes to great lengths to make your granny flat a more efficient and environmentally responsible place to be.

We can also design around other energy efficiency systems and solutions for more comprehensively sustainable granny flat designs.
