Renovating your home: some ideas to get you started
Depending on the level of work needed for your home, these renovation ideas could be the perfect place to start.
Extensions: Whether it’s extending over the garage or into the loft space, providing you can secure planning permission, extensions are a great way to increase the size of your home.
Cosmetic renovations: From repainting walls to sanding and varnishing banisters and traditional wooden floors to bring back their lustre, cosmetic renovations can make a big difference to your home and often for a small price.
Restoring period features: If you’ve snapped up a period home then help to take it back in time by restoring original features such as sash windows, cornicing and feature fireplaces.
Re-arrange the space in your home: From knocking down non-load bearing internal walls to transforming a box room into a much needed downstairs toilet, reconfiguring the space in your home could serve to transform the look and feel of your property.
If you are a planning to buy a property to overhaul in Cobham, the local expertise offered by The Sash Window Workshop can help you with many aspects of the renovation of your home. This includes anything from sash windows restoration to the installation of new timber bi fold doors.
