The Lipari family is one of our most recent Hume Doors success stories. We were so pleased to see their beautiful photos on Instagram that we just had to reach out to learn more!
We chatted with mother and influencer, Ginger Lipari, about her latest build and the number of Hume products it features.
“This is our second home,” Ginger explained. She did the designs herself and had Alfred Construction bring her Macedon Ranges dream home to life. The new build features four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a powder room, water closet, ensuite, double garage, theatre room, kitchen, dining room and family room.
“It wasn’t until we sat down with our builder to look at colour selections that we began considering which doors we needed,” Ginger recalled. Hume’s vast selection of products caught Ginger’s attention. “We were able to use Hume for all our internal doors and more – they had a product for everything we needed.”
The Lipari’s elected for plain and simple doors in terms of bathrooms, ensuites, wardrobes and other smaller rooms. However, the selection for the home’s bigger rooms and some of the external doors took a little more planning.
“We used cavity units for the bedrooms because the sliders gave us more floorspace,” she said. “Our laundry has no windows, so we needed to pick a door that would allow for plenty of sunlight so the ‘Glass Opening’ door made perfect sense for this space,” Ginger continued.
“The front door was about light, too. We picked two ‘Newington’ products here, for a double door entrance. The XN5, with its four glass inserts let in enough light – and we could opt to have them in frosted, allowing us to keep our privacy at the same time.”
The dining room door followed this glass theme. “We wanted the door to match the window on the same wall,” Ginger explained of the fully clear glass door. “This door also gives access to the side of our home.”
“We emphasised the front door, laundry door and dining room doors with 60cm long chrome handles. We used this same style for the smaller handles of all the other doors too,” she said.
The Lipari family is very pleased with the end result. To check out the completed build, follow them on Instagram @ourdreamsinsquares
“We would highly recommend Hume Doors and all their products,” Ginger stated. “They have such a wide range so there’s something for everyone. We wouldn’t change a thing about our new doors.”
