House huntes seeking fresh inspiration for interior design are invited to visit one of Barratt Homes’ developments in Cambridgeshire to see the stunning showhomes on display.

Visitors to any one of the homebuilder’s developments located throughout Cambridgeshire will be able to pick up handy tips and ideas on how to optimise space, how to make existing furniture fit and to see how they can incorporate current design trends into their new home.

Andrew Swindell, Managing Director for Barratt Homes, said: “The purchase of a new home is probably the biggest single investment a person will make in their lifetime, and showhomes are a crucial visual tool to illustrate how that blank-canvas can be shaped into a perfect home.

“When moving into a new home it can be tricky to decide where to put your furniture or what colour schemes and themes could go where, which is why our team of interior design experts have come up with distinctive themes for each showhome, giving homebuyers some ideas for how to get the best out of where they’ll be living.”

Polly Clare, of interior designers Claude Hooper, one of the specialist firms appointed by Barratt to dress its showhomes, said: “If you’re looking for the latest design trends you’re sure to find them here.

“You’ll see a strong mixture of baroque and ethnic style furnishings, with similar fabrics and accessories. You’ll also see lots of glass and chrome in the mix, while in terms of colours the emphasis remains on pastels, but with a lean towards brighter hues.”

Andrew continued: “You’re sure to come away with ideas, and anyone purchasing a home early in the build process will have the opportunity to personalise their new property with extras from our exclusive Choices range, a bespoke service not usually associated with a volume developer.

“Not only that, buyers securing a home off-plan or at an early stage in the build process are able to specify everything from landscaping in the garden, to built-in storage systems and even conservatories. Better still, there’s no VAT to pay on certain items such as fireplaces and conservatories.”

Stylish Barratt homes are available to view throughout Cambridgeshire at sites including Hampton Park and St Peter’s Mede in Peterborough and Summers Field in Papworth Everard, Cambridge.

Barratt Homes Northampton was given the maximum five star rating in this year’s HBF Customer Satisfaction Survey, in which consumers are asked if they are satisfied with the quality of their new home and whether they would recommend their builder to a friend.
