Refurbishing the existing building stock is an acknowledged issue in the building industry. Even though awareness has been raised, the design phase of refurbishment projects is often problematic. The decisions taken in the early stages of the design determine the final result.
The concept of home improvement, home renovation, or remodeling is the process of renovating or making additions to one’s home. Home improvement can consist of projects that upgrade an existing home interior (such as electrical and plumbing), the exterior (masonry, concrete, siding, roofing), or other improvements to the property (i.e., garden work or garage maintenance/additions).
An important question is where to start with your home renovation? Many house owners are considering renovation as the best way to improve their home and add to its value. We will discuss some of the popular types of renovations in this article. Kitchens and bathrooms are clearly the top two most popular renovation projects in the UK, followed by same level extensions, loft conversions, and basement conversions
We tend to spend a lot of time in this space, cooking, eating, entertaining, even helping our children do their homework. Whatever your lifestyle, by revamping this space you will be making an immediate and impressive difference to your daily life
Extra-large, double vanities and freestanding baths are on-trend, and where space is more limited consider creating a wetroom or a large walk-in shower with floor-to-ceiling glass panels. Smaller spaces benefit from light color schemes, medium-sized tiles and ambient LED lighting.
SAME LEVEL HOUSE EXTENSIONS:
Creating a larger kitchen diner by extending out into the garden or the side return is probably one of the most popular alterations. Same-level house extensions are more affordable than converting the loft or basement space. Considerations around levels of natural daylight, indoor-outdoor flow, and open-plan living are key, along with interior finishes that will integrate the new and old parts of the house.
Many homes across the UK, such as Georgian homes, Victorian terraces, and modern homes, have an unused attic that can be converted into useable living space. This kind of extension or loft conversion allows you to add valuable square meters to the house’s floor plan while not encroaching on your garden space.
Loft conversions often require structural work, as the original house was most likely not built to hold the weight of a second story. This means that loft conversions are typically more expensive than same level extensions, but they are nevertheless often the best option to add living space to a home, especially in denser, urban areas
