Top 10 reasons to renovate your home
Are you looking to renovate your home? At Artbuild, we know the power of a smart renovation – and how the right plan + the right execution can make any property feel brand new, more comfortable or check off those features you’ve always wanted. Here are some great places to start when considering a home renovation.
Improve natural lighting
Natural light has been shown to boost your vitamin D, improve sleep and ward off seasonal depression, which is why you and your house deserve as much of it as possible. Renovating your property to increase natural light via windows or skylights can really brighten up a place.
Use the space more effectively
Your house is more than just a building – it’s the place you return to each night, the base where you relax and eat, spend your time, and even raise a family. That’s why it’s so important that your home is both comfortable and practical.
Renovations done by an expert builder can let you make the most of any space. By giving yourself the features you need and cutting out the things you don’t, you can reshape your home for maximum comfort.
Add insulation to an old property
Many older houses don’t have enough insulation to keep you warm all year long. Insulation is vital for protecting the health and comfort of your family, as well as keeping your energy bills low. Let our team install fresh insulation and enjoy the difference.
Make it easier to sell your house
Obvious issues with a property can make it difficult to hook prospective buyers. Renovating can let you resolve these issues prior to going on the market. Plus, there’s an opportunity to provide new features that might boost interest.
Update to a new style
Some architectural styles are timeless classics, while others are best left forgotten. Creating a modern aesthetic can help you feel more up to date; otherwise, we can work with you to add contemporary fixtures while still preserving the home’s unique character.
Be more eco-conscious
These days, there are many ways to upgrade your house to be more environmentally friendly. Some of these additions may be a little costly up front, but the majority will actually save you money long term. Solar panels and low-flow taps, to name a few options, can save you electricity and water respectively – so it’s a win-win situation!
Fix safety hazards
This is probably one of the most straightforward reasons for renovating. Bad wiring, unstable structure and other nasty problems can lead to serious risks. Renovating before these issues grow can save you that heartache down the track.
Add fun extras
What have you always wanted in your dream house? It’s not always possible for us to buy the perfect property up front, but we can still update our existing homes. There are always additional “fun” features that can transform your house. Some great ideas include:
- outdoor fireplace
- bookshelf or storage under the stairs,]
- wine rack
- night (sensor) lights
Raise the value of an investment property
Who says renovations are just for the house you live in? If you have an investment property and are looking to rent it out, skillful renovations can boost the value, add more space and in-demand amenities. Focus on what might appeal to tenants in your area, and your renovation could yield high returns in the future.
Double glazing on windows
Double glazed windows use two panes of glass to lock in heat and dampen noise from outside. Having your windows double glazed is a great solution for people who live in busy areas or during the colder seasons.
