So, the renovation bug has bitten you too!
You’re looking at your property and seeing spaces that look tired and worn; furniture and floorcoverings that need a facelift, and walls and ceilings that need a fresh coat of paint!
Spring is in the air and renovation fever is taking hold. It’s time to roll up your sleeves and get the ball rolling with those house refurbishment London projects that you’ve been dreaming of all winter!
As homeowners, there are plenty of reasons that we want to renovate our properties. And as one of North London’s most reliable teams for house refurbishment London, we’ve decided to put together a list of 5 reasons that you should renovate your property:
Renovating your house in London is an excellent way to increase its value. When done correctly, renovations can add significant monetary value to your property, making it much more desirable for potential buyers should you decide to sell in future. Not only will renovations make your house worth more money but they can also help attract buyers who are willing to pay top-dollar for a well-maintained house.
One of the main reasons homeowners renovate is improve the aesthetic appeal and level of comfort of the property. After all, home is where you spend most of your ‘free’ time; the place where you should be able to kick back, relax and enjoy life, so why not make it a place you love?
Sometimes less is more: taking the look and feel of your property up a notch doesn’t always mean massive changes. Sometimes it’s subtle things such as fresh paint, new benchtops, or new floor coverings can make a huge difference to the overall impression of the home.
Adding an extra window or changing solid internal doors for glass-panelled ones is another way to create that classic light, bright and airy feel.
Family life is busy, and by renovating your home you can customize it to suit your needs and your lifestyle.
Open-plan living has become the norm for new builds in London, but if yours is an older home with a closed floor plan, you may wish to remove a wall or two to create that free-flow living zone that’s perfect for casual entertaining.
Loft and garage conversions are another great way to maximize the functionality of your property: that extra craft/hobby zone; a guest room and ensuite; gym room or playroom – a loft or garage conversion is a great house renovation London which does not involve changing the footprint of the home.
Your renovations could involve adding amenities to your house that you may not have had before. A swimming pool, outdoor kitchen, or an entertainment room can add genuine resale value to your home and make your property more attractive to potential buyers.

House renovations also help to improve the safety of your home. Leaky pipes, water damage and mould issues are common problems which can be attended to while renovating, making your home a safer and more comfortable place for you and your family.
Upgrading fixtures such as windows and doors, installing additional locks for security purposes, and making sure that all electrical wiring is up-to-date are a few other ways that you can boost the safety of your property.
