Terraced houses have always been a popular sight in and around South London, simply acting as another form of familiar architecture that adds to the overall identity of the Capital. If
you’re lucky enough to live in one and are struggling for a creative way to make your property stand out, Albion Windows have plenty of creative terraced house design ideas to help spark some inspiration!
Make the most of your “two-up two-down” house layout
The original layout of most terraced houses in South London mainly consist of tiny kitchens and multiple living rooms that are small in size which lead off from one another. An unfortunate side-effect of this can sometimes be a lack of natural light, with each room being so tightly knit together – it’s not exactly ideal for modern living.
The obvious solution to resolve this issue (providing you have the budget) is to relieve your terraced home from any dividing walls that keep the space feeling enclosed and stuffy. If your main living area is situated towards the back of the property, bring it to the front and enjoy beautiful views and large light entry.
For those truly wanting to let their home breathe, wide bifold doors completely revitalise the atmosphere into one that is bright and comfortable – letting homeowners spoil their home with natural light and the illusion of extra space.
Repair, clean and declutter
An easy way to create a better sense of modern space without spending a penny, is cleaning and decluttering wherever you can. Wiping down dirty fascias and soffits can give any terraced house an overnight renovation, but when this isn’t possible roofline replacements are always an affordable option that is long-lasting and worthwhile.
Declutter your terraced home with any unnecessary interior furnishings, using beautiful canvases, wall tiles and wallpaper decoration to help add a sense of character instead. Finishing touches can come in the form of replacing your entrance door which won’t impede on space as well as replacing door names and numbers with modern alternatives.
Open-plan living to help give the illusion of extra space
To help give the illusion of extra space when relaxing in your terraced home, aluminium windows subtly extends the view of your surroundings. Because aluminium is a naturally strong material, windows made using this material can withstand larger panes of glass – creating wider outside views to make for some impressive open-plan living.
