Undertaking any home project can feel daunting, especially if you’ve never carried out any home improvements before.
However, provided that you find a reputable design and build company, the property refurbishment process can be seamless and make you feel like you’re living in a new space without you having to move anywhere.
If you’re interested in refurbishing your property, you might be wondering what some of the benefits of property refurbishment are.
The benefits of property refurbishment include, but are not limited to:
- It adds value to the property
- It allows you to make your home more energy efficient
- It allows you to make your house your own
- It maximises the amount of space in your home
- It makes the space more functional
1. It Adds Value To The Property
One of the largest benefits associated with property refurbishment is that it adds value to the property.
In fact, research has shown that ‘the average home improvement would add a healthy 10 per cent to the value of a home’, emphasising how worthwhile property refurbishment can be as an investment.
The value can also vary from room to room. For instance, you can maximise the value of your home by improving the living spaces or by creating an extra bedroom.
Although a property refurbishment presents an initial cost, then, what you can make back on your investment makes it well worth the time, effort, and money.
2. It Allows You To Make Your Home More Energy-Efficient
Another benefit of property refurbishment is that it allows you to make your home more energy-efficient.
Although the price of energy will fall in July in the UK for the first time in around 20 months, we’re still very much in an energy crisis. As such, finding ways to be more energy efficient at home is on many people’s minds.
From energy-efficient light bulbs to water-saving taps, there is a range of appliances and accessories that you can choose and install during your property refurbishment to be more energy-efficient.
In turn, this will not only help to bring your bills down, but will also help to reduce your carbon footprint.
3. It Allows You To Make Your House Your Own
Another benefit of property refurbishment is that it allows you to make your house your own.
When you first buy a property, it’s unlikely that it’s been designed exactly to your own tastes.
This is where property refurbishment can come in. Finding the right architectural design and build company is essential to take a collaborative approach to the refurbishment process, allowing you to add your own stamp to create your dream home.
Whether you decide to create an open living space or add an en-suite, a refurbishment project can turn your house into a home.
4. It Maximises The Amount Of Space In Your Home
A large benefit associated with property refurbishment is that increases the amount of space in your home.
Needing more space is one of the most common reasons for moving house. Perhaps your family has expanded in recent years, or maybe you’ve outgrown your home, making it the perfect time to begin a refurbishment project.
From combining rooms to innovative built-in storage solutions, property refurbishment is great to maximise the space and helps you to get the most out of the space without you having to break the bank.
5. It Makes The Space More Functional
Last, but not least, property refurbishment makes the space more functional.
Life is full of a range of different chapters, and our homes should reflect that. Perhaps your family has expanded, or maybe your home simply doesn’t fit your lifestyle anymore, meaning that the space in your home is no longer functional.
From open floor plans to space-saving cupboards and wardrobes to smart storage solutions, residential property refurbishment is a great way of making the space in your home more functional.
After all, your home should serve you and your lifestyle, not hinder it.
We hope that this article has given you a wider understanding of some of the benefits associated with property refurbishment.
