Personalising your home: How to prepare for your visit to Studio M


When you picture your dream home, what comes to mind?

You most likely have an overall image in your head, maybe even an image of one of our beautiful displays, but very few of us realise all of the individual components that make up a new home – from flooring, to lighting, tapware and appliances – a new home is the sum of many parts.

One of the most exciting aspects of building a new home from the ground up is the opportunity to make it your own by selecting all these parts. Your home's features, fixtures and fittings will reflect who you are, combining the latest design and products with all of life’s modern conveniences.

With so many options, this decision-making process requires plenty of expert advice.

Fortunately, there’s Studio M.

Understanding our Studio M selection centres

One of the ways Metricon supports customers with their build choices is Studio M, which streamlines the selection process.

Gone are the days of travelling from one side of the city to the other in search of the perfect fitting — Studio M brings together an extensive range of product choices, conveniently under one roof for you to explore.

We put thousands of products and finishes on display, with a vast inspiration gallery and home styling library to get you started, and several kitchen and bathroom fit-outs to give you a sense of scale.

A visit to Studio M takes place before your build commences if you’re building a Freedom, Designer, Signature or DualOcc home.

Getting the right advice

With so many options available to you, you need expert help to narrow them down.

As Metricon's interior design consulting manager Marissa Bonacci explains, selecting your inclusions is made easy with the guiding hand of Studio M's new home stylists.

“The Studio M team consists of qualified interior designers, each with an area of expertise. They’ll help you make the right decisions for your new home based on your lifestyle and budget parameters." Marissa Bonacci, Studio M

The big day: Choosing the right fit-out for your new home

The selection process at Studio M takes about 4-6 hours depending on the size of your home, your budget and how prepared you are. It’s a big day, but don’t worry, we’ll have food, snacks and drinks on hand to help keep your batteries charged – and, there’s even a play area for the kids if you choose to bring them to your appointment.

During your consultation our stylists will ask you plenty of questions to ensure your choosing products that are the best match. "It's important we get to know who will be living in the home, how they will be living in it, and to understand their preferences, ideas and the vision for the home," Bonacci says.

Do I need to do any prep-work before my Studio M consultation?

Bonacci says doing some research and preparation before your decision day goes a long way to avoid overload. Her top five tips for making your selection experience successful are:
