Home renovations these days are all about standing out, being different and wonderful, it is about innovation and creativity. We love all that. Stepping out of the creature comforts of typical design is how we move forward. It is a form of expression and artistry. But why go through the pain and cost home renovations without taking into consideration the practicality of it all. The sort of practical thinking you’ll never know how you lived without. The sort of practical that makes you stop and stare and your guests say, “wow”.
Homes don’t have to be stylish or cutting edge or practical. It is not a choice that requires sacrifice. You can have it all. You can check off all of the boxes. And here is how to make the most of your home renovations:
What a waste of space most attics are; a place to keep old keepsakes that you are probably going to forget ever existed. Ski equipment from that time you went skiing in 1987 and children’s toys that are both out of fashion and broken. These types of attics are creepy. They often are full of dust and spiders, which are hardly enticing. So why not address this situation and make some home renovations by converting your attic into a shiny new place. For example; an extra guest bedroom, or a bonus room, or a game room, perhaps even a cinema, or just a place to get away from it all. An unexplored attic is your chance to create an extra, and thus a bigger house, which means added value. There is no downside.
Home Renovation via Garage Extension
is is a secret moneymaker. How? Well, think about it. By extending your garage, you are still catering to your car needs. You will still having a place to keep your pride and joy, as well as all that patio furniture you use twice a year. However, a home renovation on your garage will be crate another extra space, and you can do it a stylish way that will add value. Start with the exterior aesthetics, in which there are a wide range of automated garage doors that can impress people before they even step inside, which you will have transformed into extra space. You may even have a chance to make your open plan kitchen that much more open plan, with doors leading out to the yard. Amazing.
If you’ve got the space – say a room, wing or apartment – that has floor to ceiling windows, or just impossibly generous height, then why not add a snazzy elevated platform and enjoy your home just that little bit more. It is such a simple trick to get yourself more space and for such a low cost too, say around a few thousand. You could you use that space as an extra living area, or perhaps it can work as a bedroom or, a den for little ones. This home renovation has to be one of the most wacky and wonderful renovations anyone can make, stylish and practical. It has it all, it has absolutely everything going for it.
