Estimated reading time: 2 minutes, 56 seconds
When it comes to refurbishing your home, it’s easy to get carried away looking for décor and renovation ideas online. One minute, you’ve decided your house needs a refurb, the next you’re drowning in “home inspo” boards on Pinterest with so many options you begin to wonder if it might just be easier to pack up and buy a new home.
Worry not, if you’re stuck for choice, here are some of our top home refurbishment ideas, to take your home from mundane to magnificent.
Reinstate That Neglected Fireplace
A fireplace adds an instant cosy feel to any living room. Unless of course you’re still putting up with a 1980’s fireplace that’s not so easy on the eye. You can put as many fancy vases or candles next to it as you like, they’re never going to change the fact that it’s in need of an update.
We can see why so many homeowners end up getting rid of them as soon as they buy a property. However, if you like the concept of a fireplace as much as we do, then let the BUILDAS team renovate your old fireplace and bring some character back into your living room. Whether you want a simple, subtle design or grand marble features, we’re here to make sure you’re not left with a bare hole in a wall below your chimney breast.
Contrary to popular belief, loft conversions are not only for those with annoying teenagers they’d like to banish to the furthest, highest part of the house. We love turning a partially useless portion of the house (we know those boxes in your loft don’t really need to be there) and turn it into a space you can really use!
The possibilities are endless, whether you’d like an office, an art studio, an extra bedroom, a man cave or (our favourite option) an upstairs bar, we’ll take your unloved loft and turn it into your favourite room of the house.
Shelf Space Makes A Difference
“I have too much storage space!” said no one ever. Instead of sticking with ordinary run-of-the-mill shelves, it’s definitely worth exploring more creative (and stylish) shelving options. At BUILDAS, we can make you bespoke shelves to fit even the most awkward sized spaces – even the tricky corners!
If you’re struggling to add light to your home, skylights are a relatively inexpensive structural solution. Getting one or two fitted will brighten up even the gloomiest of rooms and give the illusion that the rooms are bigger too.
Not to mention that we all look better in natural lighting, so not only will your living room look better bathed in all this new found natural light, but so will you.
New Worktop, Who Dis?
If you’re on a tight budget, then opting for a simple laminate worktop will look just as good as high-end designs. Or, if you want to go all out, we highly recommend investing in a nice marble worktop. Just send your ideas to the BUILDAS team and we’ll do the rest.
Replace Your Front Door
Whilst a fresh lick of paint can work wonders on a door, sometimes you just have to accept that you need a completely new door. If you’re too stubborn to get rid of your old one, just remember that it’s the first thing that people see when visiting your home. Why wouldn’t you want the first impression to be a good one?
If you want to go all out, you can always have a matching letterbox and door number fitted. That’s definitely one for the perfectionists though.
