10 Home Improvement Ideas
10 Home Improvement Ideas
Thinking of making a few Home Improvements? Whether it’s remodelling the Kitchen or giving the house a lick of paint, we think we have some great ideas that will help bring a breath of fresh air in your home.
1) Remodelling your Kitchen
The Kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s where we all gather for those family meals, so we all want a lovely Kitchen to sit in. When deciding what kitchen design to choose, think about what best suits you and your home’s needs, and of course, your budget.
For more information and ideas on re-modelling your kitchen then we are on hand to help.
2) Loft Conversion
The Loft is one of the better spaces for home improvement. A loft conversion can be used to create a new bedroom or bathroom, but many of us don’t have the basic headroom required. There are plenty of options available to you for your loft conversion, but please make sure to get an architect or structural engineer to check this for you or drop us a line, and we will send out one of our loft conversion specialists to take a look.
A conservatory is a great way to add a room to your home while also giving you that room to relax and have some quiet time in. Whether it’s to read a book or watch the world go by, it’s a great home improvement.
With plenty of conservatory styles and options to choose from, you can not only create more space but also add real value to your property. For more information about the conservatory options available then this article might help you decide.
When it comes to the bathroom, there are many ways of making it your own. One way to improve your bathroom is to include a walk-in shower – it adds style to your room and gives it a more modern feel (if that floats your boat).
Again, freshening up your bathroom can add value to your home, as a relaxing bathroom always appeals when people are looking around. If you think your bathroom needs freshening up then we’d be only too happy to help.
5) Painting & Decorating
It sounds simple, but many of us miss the fact that the front door could do with a lick of paint. Giving your home a fresh coat of paint or a new wallpaper job can really improve your home and make you feel more comfortable in it.
There are also plenty of cheap yet effective materials which you can use to improve your home. From home-made cushions and curtains to getting all creative and creating your own artwork and ornaments, the options are endless.
New carpets can bring a new feel to your house – it’s a simple way of improving your home. Old and worn carpets, especially in busy areas of your house, result in a tired and run down feel. So spruce up your home with some new carpets – think colours AND materials.
If you are looking for a low maintenance option, then choosing timber or vinyl flooring could be an excellent alternative.
Our garden is the first thing people see, so its always nice to have something for them to look at. Simple garden furniture and a few choice plants are all it takes to make a garden a place people love to be.
Another option could be to add decking to your garden for those summer days so you can sit back and enjoy the weather (Apparently. It’s the UK remember?)

8) Living Room
Bored of your living room and what’s in it? Then lets start again, why not keep up with the Joneses and try out new bright colours in your room to bring some warmth and style to it?
Also looking at new styles of furniture and a little bit of research on what’s hot and what’s not can also help spruce things up a little.
9) Garage Conversion
Do you have a big garage? But also have the space to park your car somewhere else? Why not use this space to your advantage?
Turning your garage space into a games room for the kids or an extra bedroom can really add a lot to your home. And The kids and guests will love it – we promise!
Last but definitely not least are your windows. Many people think the windows they have are fine, but what many of us don’t know are the advantages to making sure we have double glazing or even triple glazing.
As well as adding to your home aesthetically, the extra warmth in your home and the money in your pocket will say it all.
