New Year - New Ideas For Refurbishing Your Home
For many people, New Year is a time for a change, so here at Value Home Solutions, we thought we would give you some ideas in case you are thinking about how to bring some New Year refurbishments to your home.
Are you fed up with drafts, high energy bills and struggling to heat your home?
There are many reasons why your home may be difficult or expensive to keep warm and the winter temperatures will definitely help you decide if now is the time to take action. Maybe you have an old home which is hard to heat, an outdated boiler or you don’t have enough insulation. What many people don’t think about is the amount of heat you lose if your doors or windows aren’t efficient. New doors and windows are extremely quick and easy to install. There are so many options from PVC to composite, patio doors to bi-fold. Modern doors and windows come with very high energy retention and they also are extremely secure. They can be purchased in a wide range of colours and styles, so it’s also an opportunity to improve the outer view of your home and to give it some personalisation. Colourful and stylish front doors are very popular now and gone are the days when all the homes in a street look identical. More and more people are taking out their patio doors and opting for bi-fold doors which help bring in extra light and easy access to the outdoors. Our design team can look at your current arrangement and advise what alternatives are best to give the feel you want to achieve.
You can never have enough storage
Finding somewhere to store all those new toys and Christmas presents can be a real challenge! While it’s not quite time for spring cleaning, many people just want to find a way to have a tidier home. A well-designed kitchen is often a good start with new modern storage solutions available to suit every home. Sit down with one of our expert consultants and they will find a way to house all your unique range of kitchen accessories and gadgets.
If bedroom storage is your challenge, why not have a look at the options for fitted bedroom furniture. Our design team can work with you to find the best way to add storage to your bedrooms with the style of your choice.
Storage isn’t enough, you need more space
If you have a growing family but not enough money to move, why not consider adding a conservatory, sunroom or glass room extension to your home? Getting planning permission for adding a room is much easier now and Value Home Solutions can help you through the process. Our design consultants can help you to design the best solution to fit the space available outside your home.
Does the outside of your home need any work?
Messy gardens are a normal part of winter, but while you are hiding inside away from the cold and storms, people easily overlook the fact that the outside of your home needs as much care as the inside – and that’s even more important in the winter months. You should check your walls and roof regularly to make sure there are no tiles missing, that you don’t need any repointing between your bricks or that vents haven’t become broken or missing. Guttering can easily become blocked and get damaged and timber cladding can start to deteriorate helping water to find a way into your home.
If you find yourself dreading the thought of painting all your timber, think about transforming the appearance of your home with a PVC roofline including the fascia, soffit, guttering and cladding. This not only helps to protect your home from the weather, but it also requires no maintenance, so you won’t have to keep painting every year.
Are you thinking of moving?
Did you know that a few modernisations can make a difference in the sale value of your home? Many buyers want to move into a home that is ready to live in, so that means a fresh lick of paint can make a big difference to the appeal of your home. Not everyone can see past their first impressions, so stick to neutral tones as that gives your potential purchaser the option to add their own colours to suit their taste and is less likely to put people off.
If you have an older home with an outdated bathroom suite, en suite or kitchen updating these can also help make you more money when you are selling. Check in with us to find out about the most modern styles. At the moment in bathrooms glass panelled showers and sparkling white bathroom suites are the favourite to give a luxurious and clean feel while practical kitchens with plenty of storage and room to work are the must have.
