Renovating a room or altering the internal layout of several rooms can make a dramatic difference to your home making it feel new again because suddenly you have the space you always wanted without the hassle of moving to achieve it. Inspired by programmes like Channel 4’s ‘Kirstie and Phil’s Love it or List it’, customers are frequently seeing the benefit of staying where they are and reconfiguring the space they know.
The leaning towards open plan living still remains present and larger kitchens which incorporate a family/social space are much desired. So, whether you are planning your change to a forever home, or to a home for now, think about what will make your home attractive to others should you choose to sell in time.
As Which? Trusted Traders, Creating Better Homes regularly refurbish and fit brand new kitchens for customers in Redditch and South Birmingham, often making a tweak to the layout to optimise the available space. In keeping with creating a social space this can mean incorporating another room to go open plan. Brand new bathrooms give a home a new lease of life. We find our customers are looking for family bathrooms that are both practical spaces which can also be equally restful or romantic with a simple change of lighting.
Glass lanterns are increasingly popular enabling huge areas to be flooded with natural light, they can be use as part of an extension or conservatory conversion. We have found some customers with a conservatory are looking to make it a year round room as over time they have found it too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer. To enable them to do this we have made alterations to the existing conservatory roof by replacing it with a flat roof with a roof lantern. This retains the light but makes the conservatory feel more like part of the home, we ensure greater thermal values to the room via the roof system allowing the room to achieve year round status.
We also undertake loft conversion work and have two projects to undertake this year (2016) which will be creating additional bedroom and storage space both with additional en-suite bathrooms. Ensuring there is the right amount of space to install appropriate staircases is a consideration and part of the discussion process we will have with our customers.
Whether it be a new work space, play room, games room, bedroom, bathroom, kitchen or a new open plan living area, if you want it we can create it. We have the ideas, and the skilled handpicked team to deliver your vision. It is simply what we do. To book an appointment call Creating Better Homes on 01527 542079.
