Top 5 Reasons To Consider Renovating Your Home
New Year, New Project. Create your Dream Home in 2019
Here are some great reasons why you should consider renovating your home this year.
Improve Your Quality Of Life
The environment we are in effects our health both physically and mentally. The relationship between our surroundings and our well- being is important. An old home with old windows tends to be colder and let in more drafts and condensation which can lead to mould and musty odours. This can also potentially cause respiratory issues. A proper renovated modern home is ventilated and insulated leading to improved air quality and in return better health.
Comfort and Enjoyment
Home is where the heart is. It is a safe place all of us want to go after the end of a long day. In order for you to enjoy your home it is essential that it is a cosy and comfortable place. If your home is visually unappealing it is hard to appreciate the place that your supposed to feel most relaxed in.
Increase The Selling Value By Renovating
If you are planning on selling your home in the next few years you may want to consider renovating some if not all of it. A fresh house attracts more potential buyers. By renovating your home, you are increasing its value. The external appeal of your home is important for raising the sales and value potential. It would be beneficial to enhance your homes kerb appeal if you are planning on selling. If your plan is to rent your home, renovations mean that you can charge a higher rent.
Avoid The Stress Of Buying A New Home
Moving houses can be a very difficult and stressful task trying to find the right one to suit your needs, lifestyle and budget. Not to mention costly if you factor in agency fees, stamp duty and removal costs. If you are happy with your current neighbourhood perhaps the solution is not to move house but to renovate your existing home.
Make Your Home More Energy Efficient And Eco Friendly
Energy efficient homes are more attractive and as a result their resale value is higher. By taking the necessary steps to make your home more energy efficient you can save yourself money on utility and electricity bills in the long run. Some things you can do to improve your homes energy efficiency are installing new windows, adding installation, upgrading or replacing your boiler and adding a solar panel to your roof. Most old homes have single pane windows which allow more heat to escape than their double and triple glazed counterparts, they also tend to have no installation in the attic.
