Renovating your home is a great way to breathe new life into spaces, and there is no better way to do this than by adding new features that change the way you live and interact with your home. Here are 4 features that can be great, affordable additions to your home:
1. Kitchen Island
A common feature in many larger kitchens, a kitchen island creates more storage and counter-top space, while also acting as a separator between the working area of the kitchen and the rest of the room, which is especially useful in open-plan kitchens with a living or dining area. Depending on the scope of your renovation, you could even have your sink, hob or another kitchen appliance re-installed into the new island unit. The choice is yours!
2. Garden Patio/Decking
Adding a patio or decking to your garden is a great way to create a space that is perfect for relaxing and entertaining in your home. Either option is far more suitable for setting up tables and chairs than on grass or gravel, and this comes in especially useful during summertime for barbecues, parties or simply eating meals outside. Additionally, you may feel that your garden is too big to upkeep properly, so having some space converted into a patio or decking area can make your garden/lawn space smaller and more manageable.
3. Patio/Sliding Doors
Patio doors (either sliding or French doors) allow you to open up your kitchen, dining room or living room to your garden, creating more freedom in how you use the space in your home. Imagine having a barbecue during summer, then being able to come and go between house and garden with ease. Having patio doors can help to create a better connection between your house and garden.
One of the most straightforward additions you can make with a renovation, having rooflight windows (sometimes called skylights) installed can bring more natural light and fresh air into your home. These could be useful in making an attic/loft space more liveable, or to add more ventilation to a kitchen. There is definitely scope for a number of different applications for rooflights in a home.
