Has your family expanded, or are you thinking about ways you could maximize space or add value? If you’re considering making some changes to your property, here are some incredible ideas to inspire you.
Converting your attic
If you’re lucky enough to have an attic, and it’s currently stuffed full of boxes or Christmas decorations, have you thought about investing in a conversion project? Loft rooms are ideal for bedrooms and guest rooms, workshops and home offices and dens for teenagers, and they add significant value. If you have sufficient head height, and your plans are approved, you can turn a vacant space into a usable, multi-functional room. As well as enhancing the value of your home, converting an attic can also make your property more appealing to a wider range of buyers.
Adding an extension
If you’re short on space, and you have room at the side or rear of your home, adding an extension is an excellent idea. Extensions enable you to create bright, open reception rooms and you could also add an extra bedroom with a double-storey project. With an extension, you can work with residential architects to create a stunning open-plan kitchen-diner, a workspace, a playroom, a formal dining room, a living room or a master suite. There are all kinds of amazing examples available to view online, and you can work with experts to come up with ideas that suit your requirements and your design preferences.

Adjusting the layout
If you live in an older property, you might find that the layout of your home causes you a headache. In generations gone by, smaller rooms were more popular. Today, many people prefer to have fewer rooms and larger, lighter spaces. If you have a separate dining or utility room, for example, you might be tempted to think about knocking through to make the kitchen bigger. Most people view the kitchen as the hub of the home, and if you have enough space, you can create a room that is suitable for cooking and eating, as well as socializing, relaxing and doing work or homework.

Sprucing up the decor
If you have all the space you need, but your home is looking a little dated or tired, a cosmetic makeover may be just the ticket. You don’t have to spend a fortune to transform and modernize your interiors. Freshening up paintwork, adding new prints, patterns and colors to the walls and replacing accessories and soft furnishings can make all the difference. Hot interior trends for 2020 include shades of gray, mixing old and new, earth tones and quirky prints for bathrooms.
Whether you’ve outgrown your home, or your tastes have changed, taking on a home makeover project is an incredibly exciting proposition. If you’re short on space, your decor is dated, or you long to change the layout, there are several ways you can revamp your home and create a heavenly haven that caters to all of your needs. Consider different projects, set a budget and make sure you hire reputable companies with an excellent track record.
