Adding a special garden area or patio to your home is the perfect way to open up new hosting opportunities and to create a space where you can go to relax. The great thing about this project is that it can be done within a number of different budgets meaning it is accessible to most people. Even if you choose to go for a more understated look you will still be able to create a homely space within your garden where you can host garden parties and barbeques. In order to create a perfect space, it is important that the area you want to renovate is level, if your garden is uneven it will make it harder to build upon. You may want to think about installing a concrete panel to even out any discrepancies, working with concrete can be difficult so if it is not something you are familiar with I would definitely hire a professional.
Extensions and Conservatories
A great way to create more space in your home is to either extend an existing room in size or to
install a completely new room in the form of an extension or conservatory. Depending on what you plan to use the extra space for will depend on what kind of extension you go for. If you want an extra bedroom and extension with proper walls and roofing would be best to ensure the room is warm through the colder months. However, if you are looking to create a lounge-style room a conservatory may be a good choice for you as it provides extra storage and garden hosting space. Depending on what you prefer you may have to enquire into getting planning permission if the project is of a large scale.
Within many homes there is a great deal of wasted space in the attic, if you are looking to build an extra room within your home but lack the space to have a conservatory or extension then an attic room may be better suited. Attic conversions do not come cheap but once the shell is constructed and you can begin decorating it is actually a very satisfying project to complete. You will also have to consider the cost of building a way to access the attic conversion if one doesn’t already exist, many people choose to install an extendable ladder which is much more efficient as well as more affordable than installing a staircase. Attic bedrooms have the potential to become very cozy and private spaces perfect for those of you that have children who are growing up and will start to want their own area.
Kitchen and Bathroom Renovations
The final renovation on this list that can really spruce up your home this year would have to be making updates to your kitchen or bathroom. As these are the smaller rooms in the house but are something that get used on a daily basis making a few changes can really freshen up your outlook on your home’s aesthetic. Depending on how far you are willing to go with the renovations you may want to keep the changes quite limited and stick to a fresh coat of paint. However if you are looking to go for a completely different look you may be interested in some of the new releases to the kitchen ranges that are currently on the market. If your kitchen is due an upgrade and you are looking to start fresh with new units and appliances I would definitely recommend shopping around for the right style for you as well as the best deal.
