Because of their practicality and cheaper price, granny flats is a housing trend that won’t lose its magic in Sydney. It’s not just the convenience that these small living spaces offer, but also because they’re extremely easy to redesign with your personal touch. If you’re looking to buy a new granny flat or if you’re thinking of modifying your home’s interior design, here are five granny flat designs to try:

  1. Granny in Modern
    It’s number one on the list not only because it’s an easy design to adapt, but because it’s the most practical and easiest to redesign as well. Known for its simplistic approach, going mod is all about focusing on functionality and order. With signature white walls and furniture with clear-cut edges and simple artwork, you can transform your flat into true modern fashion. The key to making this design work? An efficient lighting system that will illuminate the room. Remember, a bright room will give the illusion of more space. 2
  2. Granny in Nautical
    If you’re up for a little bit of an adventure and yearn for a tad more challenging design compared to the Mod, the Nautical design is worth a try–especially if you’re into shades of blue. Recreating a navy-themed design is perfect for your limited space. For starters, stick to a three-coloured palette of navy blue, cream, and brown. To bring out the latter shade, use wooden furniture and wooden floorboards as either accents or backdrops. While you can add elements of rope, nets, and seashells, don’t forget the blue-and-white stripes signature design of this theme. It’s a relaxing design that will remind you of calm seas and serene blue skies.3
  3. Granny in Bohemian
    If you’re the type who loves splashes of color, there’s also another top design trend to try, and that’s the Bohemian. Borderline psychedelic and retro, this theme aims for warmth because of its bold colors. Usually brought to life using bright and playful patterns and textures, this design is softened by mixing the whole look with miniature indoor plants, lamp with dimmers or frosted-glass lamps. On the other hand, you can try to wash out too much color and replace it with nature-themed furniture and accent pieces. This is a dreamy theme that can also accommodate antique pieces, vibrant rugs, and abstract watercolor paintings.6
  4. Granny in Korean-Inspired
    If you have to notice something about the Korean-inspired interior decor is that they have a little bit of everything. They have one glamorous accent piece, colorful or futuristic furniture, and a big investment on great lights. It can be both playful and serious, depending on your personality. It’s very versatile and yet it maintains a semblance of order. There is also always a touch of nature in the design, whether it’s a potted plant, or an interesting wooden sculpture or an eye-catching wooden paneling. Another interesting take on this design is its ability to make mixed-furniture work!4
