When it comes to your home you may love where you live, the area may be ideally situated for work or school. Friendships with neighbours form but houses are outgrown as our families grow too. Sometimes a house move is what is needed but more often than not you can improve where you live instead of starting again!
Adding additional rooms onto your home is one way to create the space you need. Children need separate bedrooms, an office is needed, kitchen made larger? These can be in the form of extensions into garden space or up above garages, kitchen etc. This is by far the most expensive option when it comes to improving your home but does solve the issue of space.
There are practical things around the home that you could do to improve living there, adapting your home may be beneficial due to health issues. The likes of bathroom adaptions, handrails etc to help mobility. There may be the need to get a stair lift installed or a ramp installed on any outer steps, of course, there may be the need to consider a move to a bungalow if mobility becomes too much of an issue.
Updating the inside of your home. Renovating a kitchen or bathroom can give your home a new lease of life. New kitchen cupboard doors and worktops are sometimes all that are needed for a face lift so the cost can be kept to a budget. Bathrooms can be updated with a change of tiles and flooring. New bathroom suites can be picked up relatively cheaply and if you aren’t changing the layout of the pipes a total renovation should be pretty straight forward.
Of course the cheapest option would be to redecorate and take care of any niggling jobs that you have been putting off. It is amazing what a coat of paint, a hammer and some nails can do when it comes to tidying the outside (and inside!) of your home.
