Housing Styles In Malvern
In Malvern you will find a range of impressive mansions alongside Edwardian, Victorians, Art Deco, mid-to-late 20th century apartments as well as new ultra-modern developments.
Malvern’s period home residents often compliment their homes with exterior awnings that keep the integrity of the architecture and interior solutions that offer them privacy from the close proximity of the street, insulation and aesthetic appeal while harmonising with the elegance of the interior design of their home.
Timber shutters, both indoor and outdoor, are a popular and timeless option that compliment the aesthetic of period homes while also providing effective control of light and privacy within the home.
Alongside the period homes there is an influx of slick new apartments whose residents require modern roller blind designs to complement the interior of the house while still providing them with privacy from the street, insulation and aesthetic appeal. In 2020, there’s a distinct trend toward pairing roller blinds with sheer curtains, providing full light control as well as softening and filtering the daylight and adding a cosiness to the interior.
With the wide variety of housing architecture in Malvern custom window fittings are an important option for residents in this area.
The commercial precinct is focussed around Malvern Road which houses a variety of boutique stores such as Grace and Belinda. Many retail shops in the suburb have chosen to use canopy awnings, which provide shade and individual aesthetic to their shopfront, while adding to street appeal.
