After months of being confined to our homes, many of us have grown tired of our current living spaces. Despite this, it can be difficult to come up with fresh ideas to revamp your home. Once you get a basis for an idea, you can adapt it to suit the needs of your home. So, what kind of home renovation ideas are there?
An extremely rewarding renovation that caters to the more environmentally conscious individuals is an eco-friendly renovation. Not only is this a great way to do your bit for the environment, but it will also save you money on your electric and heating bills. These renovations might include the replacement of weatherboarding, the installation of double-glazed windows, added insulation to walls, and solar panels on the roof.
The Glass Link
A stylish and contemporary renovation is the installation of a glass linking section to join separate sections of your home. This link allows for the connection of different levels whilst incorporating light and a garden view into the passageway. Additionally, you can install the link with a slight angle so that rainwater can seamlessly slide off, rather than creating dirt on the link’s roof.
Connect To the Garden
Introducing sliding or glass doors into the room that brings you onto your garden is a great way to open up your space. Not only does this allow for a lovely cool breeze in the summer months, but it also gives you a means of admiring your garden when it is too cold. Your house will always seem light and airy through the installation of sliding doors.
An ideal way to maximise your space is to introduce rooflights and vaulted ceilings. This is particularly handy for single storey homes that otherwise may seem squashed. Higher ceilings enhance your space and allow for a less stuffy atmosphere.
Create an Open Plan Layout
An open plan is a very spacious solution, however, to make it more manageable, you might introduce physical zones. These zones can be cornered off using pillars or partial walls, incorporating some structure into an open plan that is not as restrictive as full walls. This works for homes of all sizes as you can adapt the layout to suit your property’s requirements.
Expose The Original Fabric
Rustic home design is in fashion and stripped back, minimalist materials wholly encapsulate this ambience. Whether you expose brickwork, border oak, or pebbling, your home will ooze with natural style. After all, sometimes less is definitely more.
Another great way to open your space is to install ceiling glazing. Not only will this create the illusion of added space, but it will bring light into an otherwise dark room. This will also alleviate your electric costs as you will not need to use your lights as frequently.
Use Built-In Joinery
Not all rooms are of conventional shapes and so built-in joinery and storage is a great space-saving solution. Not only does this save space but it makes your storage a decorative component of your house. For example, you can build a bunk bed with incorporated drawers and cupboards.
You do not have to take on all these projects alone, thanks to many design and build London companies. These construction companies will take your plans on board and create your dream space so that you do not have to subject yourself to copious amounts of labour. However, if you are fond of a project, there are plenty of renovations that are completely doable yourself. How will you choose to take on the revitalisation of your home?
