Making the decision to stay in your current home rather than moving to a new one can be a difficult one. However, there are many benefits to staying in your current home and improving it rather than moving.
Whether you’re looking to update the interior design, add a new extension, or make more efficient use of existing space, there are several ways to make your home more comfortable and enjoyable. From painting and wallpapering to adding new furniture and fixtures, renovating your home instead of moving somewhere new has plenty of opportunity.
Updating your kitchen
Kitchen renovations can range from small modifications like painting the walls and replacing the
countertops, to larger projects such as replacing the cabinets and appliances.
When planning your kitchen renovation, it’s important to consider the overall interior design of your home. You can enlist the help of an interior designer to help create a cohesive look and provide you with valuable advice on how to maximize the space in your kitchen.
A garden makeover is a great way to improve your home. Not only does it add value to the property, it greatly improves mental and physical well-being. If your budget doesn’t stretch to a complete garden redesign, there are simple and cost-effective ways to spruce up your garden. Adding a simple lick of paint can work wonders, as well as including a cosy seating area to be enjoyed during the summer months. A bright flower bed will make your garden appear inviting and welcoming.
Bathrooms are often one of the last rooms to be updated in the house. If the budget is unable to stretch to a complete bathroom renovation, do not worry as there are a few easy tweaks you can make such as refreshing the paintwork, replacing accessories and regrouting the tiles.
Add bifold doors
Bifold doors are a brilliant way to modernise your home and bring extra natural light into the space, making it appear brighter, more spacious and ultimately more appealing. They are also long-lasting and add extra security. Some experts estimate that bifold doors can add between 5-10% value to your home.
If you’re looking for more usable space in your home, a loft conversion is a perfect way to add this without having to move elsewhere. Firstly, they are affordable and can add as much as 20% value to your home once you do decide to sell. They can also offer some much-needed natural light that will decrease energy bills and make your home appear larger.
