Property owners will know that there is an endless amount of fun that can be had when renovating a home. Aside from the potential costs and the essential work that needs to be done, both of which do tend to prevent budding interior designers from getting carried away, starting a new renovation project for fixing up a problematic feature in your home is always a valuable investment because it not only increases your own enjoyment but it also raises your property value.
Even if you are not seeking to take advantage of the UK’s particularly buoyant housing market right now, it may still benefit you to begin improving your home in fun ways. There are a number of modern projects and popular features that can keep your living space feeling fresh while simultaneously benefiting your return on investment. Here are some of our favourites.
Whether you want to take the chill out of the kitchen floor, make a bathroom space even more indulgent, or simply heat your home in a cost-effective and luxurious way, underfloor heating is an excellent option. In addition to its decadence, it is also increasingly feasible and affordable, making it appealing to both those seeking a more comfortable home and the frugal.
If you have a garden space, it might be worth reconsidering the function of your shed. As homes become more curated and there is a greater focus placed upon gardens, an outbuilding solely dedicated to storage simply doesn’t cut it. Instead, log cabins and summer houses are taking outbuilding priority as homeowners make their property more appealing with home office and guest house functionality. These outbuildings have amazing potential for fun too, with a number of homeowners utilising them as hobby rooms, creative studios, and play areas!
Having as much space as possible remains a priority for those seeking a new home and the more rooms a home has, the greater its value. This is why, no matter what type of professional you might seek advice from, you will always be advised to convert an attic or cellar if it isn’t currently in use. Renovating the space into a useable room, whether a bedroom or utility space, will dramatically increase your property value and give you a blank canvas for activities and designs.
One of the most exciting features a home can have is a concealed, mystery room. These spaces, whether large or small, blend perfectly with your home, often as a bookshelf or mirrored wall, and keep behind them a secluded and private space to enjoy. Don’t let available space put you off either, as many homeowners convert tiny rooms and cupboards into secret rooms effectively too!
Refreshing and revitalising your home with the latest styles and trends is an effective way of increasing your home’s appeal and, by proxy, its value too. Find the latest popular design trends, such as statement wallpapers, painted ceilings, and Terraza tiles, then have some fun redecorating. You won’t mind the extra spend since any stylistic experiment is still likely to add value to your property!
