Are you moving into a new house or just want to give your home a makeover? Sometimes a tired home just needs a small change to make it feel like new again. Have some pride in your home again and remember why you fell in love with it in the first place. Here are some house renovation ideas for you to take on board.
Open up the possibilities
Windows are sometimes called the eyes of the home as they can affect its kerb appeal and are one of the most noticeable features. There are a range of traditional window styles including casement and bay styles but sometimes these aren’t enough. You can have any shape or size of window you like. Whether you have an unusually shaped house or just want some different, this can easily be done with bespoke windows. Your windows don’t have to be white either. Windows can come in almost any colour you can think of so be creative and choose the right ones for you. Without compromising efficiency or security, you can have bespoke windows that add style and creativity to your home.
Space and style
If you’re looking for an affordable way to create a bit more space in your home, have you considered a porch? An innovative storage area for shoes and coats, a porch will dramatically change the appearance of your home. Choose from a range of beautiful designs to find one that fits your style. They also offer an extra layer of security and insulation so what’s not to love?
Make an entrance
The entrance to your home is what visitors see first so it’s important that it looks good. A new door will brighten up your home and set the tone for the rest of the house. A composite door is the ultimate choice for appearance, security and efficiency. With a unique multi-layered structure that makes it stronger than other doors, heat is prevented from escaping. Unwanted cold air also won’t be able to enter. Available in traditional and bright colours with a timber effect skin, these doors are an elegant entrance to your home.
It can be as simple as a lick of paint. A new colour in your home will instantly change the mood and make the room feel like new again. Some people love Magnolia but why not be daring and try something bold like teal or aubergine? Paint your rooms with your favourite shades to create a room that is undoubtedly yours. Fill it with your favourite ornaments, cushions and pieces of art and furniture to add the finishing touches.
Step back in time
The perfect way to add a heritage feel to any home is to add exposed wooden beams. They can be attached to ceilings and walls to resemble those found in period properties. If done right they will look like they’ve always been there. An elegant choice for country homes, they can also be used in modern builds to give a charming cosy feel. Imagine the scene; wooden beams, antique furniture and a roaring wood fire.
Let your home flow
Another simple way to renovate your home is to create an open plan design. Remove an internal wall and instantly see the extra space you have. As long as the wall isn’t load-bearing this shouldn’t be an issue. Whether you want a kitchen/diner or extended living space, you will see the difference it makes to your home. It gives a natural flow to your home and allows your family to spend more time together. Entertaining and parties are also made easier with the extra space and natural light.
Get back to nature
Outdoor living is becoming a more and more popular option for homes across the country. For the summer, consider adding some outdoor furniture such as tables, chairs and even sofas. With bifold doors, you can open up your home and create a flow between your inside and outside spaces. Encouraging you to make the most of your garden as well as being a great option for summer BBQs.
