Why Should You Refurbish your house?
There are several reasons why our customers come to us looking for assistance with a house refurbishment project. First off, some customers have been living in a house for a while and it is due an upgrade. The years hurtle by in the blink of an eye and before you know it, your property can start to look tired or old fashioned. By undertaking a refurbishment, you can bring it up to date and make it feel homely again. This can be in the form of replacing things like fixings and fixtures and or flooring, redecorating, plastering, painting, wallpapering walls, and some modernisation processes, or it can be in the form of a larger renovation, taking apart what is currently there and starting from fresh, including fitting new bathrooms and kitchens, or considering the existing layout as well. Sometimes, a refurbishment is needed simply to make a property feel like a home.
It’s unlikely you’ll need planning permission for any refurbishment work at your property. Compared with larger renovations, which often require planning approval, there’s less red tape to cut through when undertaking a refurbishment. However, if you’re undertaking major electrical or gas work during your refurbishment, you may need Building Regulations approval.
Whatever your reason for considering a refurbishment project, you’ll need to think about your motivations for doing the work and how much you want to spend. A well planned refurbishment not only makes the property look stunning and inviting, it can considerably increase its market value, especially where the house is to be sold on to new owners.
A property refurbishment can be far more cost-effective, less disruptive and can be achieved in a shorter timescale, if you’re already happy with the existing layout and functionality, and simply want to improve it aesthetically.
