Home Improvement - 5 Things You Need to Know

Designing your perfect home is not as easy as one may think and I’m sure it’s been a struggle even knowing where to begin, right? However, these following steps can assist you on your journey in developing something you couldn’t have imagined.

1: Get inspiration

Ideas and dreams come from past experiences and those are the foundations you ought to build upon. So how do you get inspired? There are millions of homes out there, so I would suggest visiting your favourite neighbourhood, taking pictures, attending open house events or looking at the many house and home magazines, and of course, don’t forget the Ideal Home Show in London which can give you a host of ideas for improvement every spring time.

2: Home improvement that adds most value

The question isn’t necessarily how to improve a certain aspect of your home, but which aspect to improve in the first place. Here’s an idea, why not consider your house as an investment. This may help you decide which home improvement to go with. You have to think which element would create a good return on investment. For example, could you turn the attic into an additional room?

3: Have a plan with minimal change

We all want a project to be finished on time and best case scenario with time and money to spare. Therefore, it is important to have every step outlined before proceeding with your home improvement. Delays are often caused by unforeseen problems which are out of our control, so make sure that decisions on architecture, furniture, flooring or paint for example are taken well before the project starts. Try not to change your mind too much as this will result in changes in terms of schedule, order of operations and may add extra costs.
