Granny Flat Designs – Getting More From Your Property

Before moving forward, let’s get to know more about granny flats and what possible benefits they have for a homeowner. First off, a granny flat is an extension of a home which is usually detached from the existing house. A granny flat is basically a small home that caters to a variety of people, including elderly family members, single people who don’t need too much space, or a young family starting out. The best part of a granny flat is the profit if it were to be rented out, giving you constant cash flow and great returns. Let’s discuss further the specifics of granny flats and how a homeowner can benefit from having one on their property.

Office Space for Business Owners

Granny flats offer business owners a perfect place to have their own home based business. The design can be catered to suit your needs and requirements, subject to compliance with applicable legislation. The growing cost of rent and outgoings on most commercial premises has proven to be too large and not feasible for most, hence the choice of a granny flat for their office. Working the hours you want, saving on fuel and working from home, what more could you want? Further, being a detached structure still allows a professional atmosphere for your business, but the distance to your home also allows a perfect work/life balance.

Design And Amenities

While it is relatively smaller than the actual house erected on a plot of land, a granny flat is intended to be self-sufficient. This means it can act as a stand-alone home with all the amenities that a normal house would. It normally includes a bedroom, a kitchen (or something smaller), a living area, a bathroom, and a laundry area. All these amenities are necessary for building a granny flat. However, Granny Flat Designs are endless. Simply because it’s a smaller version of a home doesn’t mean its design can just be outright boring. Granny flats can be designed to be just like full-sized homes. The designs could be endless as it could range from simple to extravagant, depending on the homeowner and its intended use. Some flats that are intended to be rented out won’t necessarily require an extravagant interior. A simple home-like interior would suffice, however not limited.

The Advantage Of Granny Flat Legislation

State-wide Legislation GUARANTEES approval for many standard suburban allotments.
