As we move into 2021, your thoughts might turn to home improvement projects, which offer many benefits; aside from adding comfort to your living space, you are adding significant value to your property. Most Australian homeowners will carry out an improvement every 2-3 years, and with that in mind, here are some of the most popular projects to improve your living space.
- Private Pool – Fibreglass solutions are more affordable than the traditional tile and concrete pool and if you have the space, why not? Talk to a local pool contractor, who would be happy to pay you a home visit and discuss the many options and once an agreement is reached, the work can begin. Let’s not forget the safety aspect; you will need to fence off the pool area and the pool needs to be inspected to obtain a pool safety certificate. This is one project that will boost the value of your home, as well as giving you many years of enjoyment and pleasure.
- Bathroom Revamp – If you are looking for bathroom renovations in Northern Beaches, start with an online search and ask a few local renovation companies to quote for your project. Once the contractor knows your budget, they can make a few design suggestions and hopefully, this will lead to an agreed layout and design. The bathroom is the one room in the house where luxury should be evident and with the help of an in-house bathroom designer, you can create the perfect layout that suits your lifestyle.
- Loft Conversion – A cost-effective way to add living space, the loft, or attic conversion is very affordable, as the exterior is already in place and the space can be used as an extra bedroom, kid’s study room or even a man cave! Providing you do not exceed the existing building profile, you do not need planning permission when converting your loft. You will need a couple of skylights and a set of dropdown stairs, plus the floor needs to be installed, while the exterior walls need to be cladded. An additional layer of insulation would be required between the roof and the inner wall, which will save on energy costs.
Whatever you decide, make sure you deal with an experienced contractor who has the know-how and the resources to complete the project on time and to budget. When you carry out home improvements, you are adding to your investment, while also bringing more comfort for you and your family.
