Does your home look good and feel great this summer? Is the exterior of your home in excellent condition? Or would you like to make improvements but haven’t had time? Thousands of homeowners in the UK think their home could benefit from some maintenance and upkeep. This month at Majestic Designs, we’re sharing ten creative home renovation ideas with you that will both improve the longevity of your home and transform your space. A home renovation isn’t just about appearance and aesthetics. Upgrading your home and its exterior provides a range of benefits.
Ten Home Renovation Ideas
Install a Composite Door
A composite door is a stylish and attractive option to improve your property’s appearance. They come in a wide range of colours and styles to suit your requirements. A composite door will improve energy efficiency and increase your home security. Endurance composite doors are nearly maintenance-free and feature an ATK 3-star diamond locking system, which is one of the most secure lock mechanisms in the UK. They are durable and can suit both traditional aesthetics and modern, urban designs to fit your personal taste.
Replace Your Windows
Replacing windows throughout your home will transform both its exterior and interior living space. From casement windows to sash windows, all our windows are A+14 rated for energy efficiency and optimal thermal performance. With energy efficient windows, you can keep your costs down and help the environment. Energy saving double glazing will also increase your home’s comfort and reduce the impact of external noise. The look of a home and living space is completely transformed by replacing windows, therefore you can ensure your home looks aesthetically pleasing.
Renovate Your Roofline
A roofline is an integral part of your home, including fascias, soffits, bargeboards, and guttering. Making sure your roofline is both aesthetically attractive and weather tight will prevent future issues of damp and structural damage. Small leaks can lead to damp problems and rotting timber frames, so it’s essential to upkeep your roofline. A drainage system that is well designed will protect your home against a range of British weather and improve the aesthetics of your home. A roof has an influence on the overall look of your home. By changing the roof coverings, your home will look as if it has been completely refurbished. Upgrading your roofline can also improve insulation in the house which will save you money in the long run.
Landscape Your Garden
Tidying your garden – keeping it neat and well-kept – signifies a cared for home. You can still introduce areas of wildflowers and grow plants that support local wildlife, but this looks aesthetically pleasing with a tidy lawn. Landscaping your garden is beneficial for your health because when it’s a pleasant place to spend time in, you will spend more time outside. If you landscape your garden and create wildlife friendly areas, you can enjoy both your garden space and share your garden with a range of wild animals such as birds and hedgehogs. This will transform your garden space, making it a welcoming place to relax outside.
Install a Porch
A porch creates a symmetrical look to the front of your home. It increases home security and energy efficiency, whilst providing a convenient area for storage. You can store anything from coats to pushchairs, increasing the storage capacity of your home. With an extra door, this will also put off potential intruders. Choosing a porch that fits the colour of your choice and aesthetics of your home can increase kerb appeal. First impressions are important to people, so ensuring your home has kerb appeal can increase the value of your home. Whether composite or uPVC, at Majestic Designs, our entrance doors are fitted with a multi-point locking system to boost home security.
Perfect Your Paths and Driveway
A driveway or path at the front of your home can be created to welcome visitors. Depending on the style and look of your home, choose from concrete, gravel, or block paving. The feel of a home is drastically improved by an attractive driveway or path, and this will improve the aesthetics of your home exterior making it a more pleasant experience when you arrive home.
Refurbish Your Fencing
Putting fencing up around your property ensures privacy and helps protect your home. It’s important to look after your fencing with an annual coat of protective stain. Quality fencing can help protect your landscape and define the space around your home. Fences also act as a deterrent to intruders and trespassers, preventing children and pets from running out so they can be safe. Making sure you take care of your fencing ensures it will last longer and you won’t need to replace your fencing so regularly. To get creative, you can choose from a range of colours to refurbish your fence. Add a pop of colour to complement the aesthetics of your home exterior.
Renovate Your Render
It is essential to maintain your property’s façade if it has been rendered. Repairing any damaged or weathered sections ensures its longevity, and re-painting it will improve the aesthetics of your home. Proper rendering ensures thermal insulation, noise insulation and helps your home be weather resistant. A house loses about 40% of its heat through the walls, so renovating your rendering improves thermal performance and keeps energy costs down. By weatherproofing your home with proper rendering, you can help protect your home and improve its appearance. Some render mixes can be coloured before they are applied to walls, so you don’t necessarily need to paint during the process. You can select a colour that fits the style you want and make the exterior of your home attractive, which increases kerb appeal and can add value to your property.
Add a New Number
A sparkly new house number can enhance the look of your home and help the postman or visitors find you. It may seem like a simple idea, but each small renovation can completely alter the aesthetics and feel of your home.
Replacing your blinds or curtains
Replacing your blinds or curtains in the home can freshen up the look of your living area and improve the look from outside. Clean wooden blinds look tidy from the exterior of your house, whilst also improving the look in each room. On hotter days, blinds prevent the sunshine from pouring in and help keep the room cooler. During the winter months, curtains help keep your home feeling warm and cosy.
