Renovating and revamping your living space is a great way to have the home you desire without having to up sticks and relocate. Kitchens and bathrooms are high on the list of favourite renovations in the UK, closely followed by extensions and conversions. The trend towards renovation rather than relocation began several years ago because of the rise in house prices. The concept caught on, with many choosing to change and redesign their property to their exact preferences where possible.
Kitchen renovations are a hot topic throughout the UK, as this room is one of the most important in the home. Much time is spent here chatting with family and friends over tea or coffee, cooking, eating or even doing homework. Even with a modest budget, a kitchen renovation can bring dramatic changes to your lifestyle.
The bathroom is another priority for home owners when it comes to upgrading and improving. The layout may be something that needs rethinking, as sometimes little thought seems to have gone into the positioning of toilets etc. As with the kitchen, there are now a number of water and energy saving features available that will ultimately save you money.
In general a floor level extension will cost less than a loft or basement conversion, as there is usually less structural work needed. Popular across the board are conservatories, which also offer a major advantage when it comes to selling your property. These home improvements can transform your space, and can provide an area for a kitchen diner if desired. This provides plenty of daylight and will merge the garden and home where stunning multi-fold doors are installed.
Valuable space can be added to the home with a loft or basement conversion, without interfering with other parts of the home or garden. It’s important to think about the design of stairways and windows or skylights. Building specialists like Multi Building Services can advise on aspects like this. Smart storage solutions are also a good idea in these compact spaces. Basement conversions are ideal for maximising usable living space, and the floor can be lowered also for additional space. As with loft conversions, it is important to create a solid structure, that is watertight for a successful result.
