By / Uncategorized / Comments Off on 10 Great Bathroom Design Ideas  

When you are planning the perfect bathroom don’t overlook the little things that make your house a home. Take a look at this selection of 15 design solutions to create a truly unique bathroom regardless of size.

Splash Of Colour

Sticking to an all white bath will keep it feeling airy and bright. For a modern touch pull in some modular storage pieces. Want some colour? Choose an eye-popping bright shower curtain.

Statement Piece

inviting unique pieces of furniture into your bathroom can add personality to your space. A display cabinet or dresser can hold towers and extras like shampoo, soap and the ever important toilet rolls.

Tile Magic

For a cool and rejuvenating vibe surround your bath with floor to ceiling tiles in coloured tiles, make it bright and vibrant with a splash of magenta or spearmint for a relaxing sea of green.

Shades Of Grey

A narrow space thrives on consistency pairing white with grey gives the space a modern look. Large squared tiles will fool the eye into believing the space is larger than it actually is. Keep accents minimal so the room feels sleek and uncluttered.

Modern Approach

While a monochromatic black and white bathroom is contemporary, it’s also invigorating. Floor to ceiling tiles provide a fresh twist, be smart with storage space by hanging a rack for towels.

Consider Usage

Before making any big decision think about how your bathroom will be used. If it will be a space for escaping to and relaxing a stunning freestanding roll top bath says serenity now.

Time For Reflection

When you think of a rejuvenating bath, blue immediately springs to mind. Opt for a mosaic tiled shower wall to feel open, refreshing and cool. Ascent pieces in chrome are sleek and modern choices.

Stuck For Space

A sleek pedestal sink helps a tight space feel more expansive. A glazed brick approach offers an unexpected decorative touch. An oversized mirror will trick the eye into the illusion of more space and create additional light.

Wow With Wallpaper

Wallpaper adds an attractive splash of colour to any bathroom especially when paired with a freestanding sink and modern style mirror.

Down With The Kids

When it comes to a bathroom for the kids, make design decisions that are functional and playful. Mosaic tiles keep the room feeling fresh and cool. White for top portions of the walls and ceiling brightens the room. Utilising the walls for storage is a smart use of space, especially for large families.

By / Uncategorized / Comments Off on Design / Style Tips For Decorating Your Living Room On A Budget

Revamping your home decor doesn’t have to be a major project nor a costly expense. Here are some suggestions to give your rooms a fresh look without breaking a sweat or the bank.

Update lampshades with more contemporary shapes in simple neutral shades, such an easy and simple fix, it really will transform your room.

Painting is the simple fix to transforming any room, but instead of repainting a whole room, just paint one wall in a focal colour or paint a contrasting rectangle over a sofa to use as a gallery space. Paint can also be added to the insides of bookshelves or units in an unexpected colour or paint your ceiling a lighter version of the wall colour you choose. All these small changes will make a real difference to the feel of any room.

Updating your window dressings doesn’t have to mean a complete overhaul of your curtains, just changing something as simple as your curtain pole or tie backs can make a big difference to your windows overall look.

Pulling a room together by choosing two contrast colours like black and white or white and a bright colour like purple and repeating the theme throughout with a contrasting wall or pillows on a sofa will give your room a really modern stylish feel.

Consider your clutter, too many home decor accessories can really make a room look small, try boxing them all away and getting them out one by one to see which ones have the most impact, as they say less is more.

Artwork can be a real focus point in any room, and with bright and colourful canvas’s available at low cost stores you needn’t break the bank bringing life to your living space. If you have existing paintings try moving them around to different walls or rooms, it will be like seeing them for the first time.

Light can also be maximised in any darker room by hanging a framed mirror directly opposite the window.

Trying to complete a decorating project on a shoestring budget isn’t easy. But, with a commitment of time an effort, it can be done. Use these tips to get you started. Don’t be afraid to run with them and really make your interior design your own. At the end of the day, what’s most important is that you are happy and comfortable in your current living space.pjimage (18)

Add value to your home

Loft conversions are one of the best ways to invest in your home. Experts claim that a good conversion can increase the value of your home by an average of £20,876 – meaning that the average loft conversion has an ROI of around 200{6c4b9d3d2fdca7ad57bef894ec04e07a5922904b84f863aa9c3468340681c776}. No other home improvement comes close, with extensions only adding an average of £16,000 to each property and cost considerably more to complete.

 

Avoid moving costs and upheaval
Traditionally ways to increase the number of bedrooms is to move. One of the major benefits of a loft conversion is that you stay in the same area, avoiding the need to modify your commute, school catchment area, the cost of moving your families possessions, and the ordeal and stress of moving home. Stamp duty itself is often equal to the cost of an entire loft conversion so you achieve significant savings here too.

 

Increase space
One of the main reasons people choose to move house is to increase the space in their home. A well planned loft extension will improve your storage space and provide extra living space for you and your family. Your immediate options include a home office, an extra bedroom (with an ensuite bathroom / shower room, a children’s play area or games room.

 

Improve your views
Most homeowners are used to looking at other houses on their street, they’re amazed by the new views they have once their loft conversion is completed. Being higher up means that you can survey your area from a new perspective.

 

Increase daylight
Velux windows or even dormers let in more light as they’re less likely to be blocked by houses, trees and other obstacles that stop your other windows from letting in the maximum amount of sunshine. Your loft conversion windows will enjoy longer hours of daylight due to their height positioning and angles.

Entire Houze – Five things to consider before tackling home renovation

By / Blog / Comments Off on Entire Houze – Five things to consider before tackling home renovation

Renovating your home can be thrilling and when the results are exactly what you wanted, there’s nothing more satisfying. But they can also be stressful and costly, in both time and money. Here are five things to consider before undergoing a renovation, whether the job is big, or small.

Understand the law
In 2005 the government introduced electrical safety rules across England and Wales that state any fixed electrical installation work carried out in the home must meet building regulations and be completed by a certified electrician.

If you decide to fit your own windows, you’ll be breaking the law unless you have a FENSA certificate. This is documentary evidence that the installation work has been self-certified as complying with building regulations. (Any double-glazing company you use will also need to produce this certificate.)

Internal renovations, such as new staircases or knocking down walls, will also need to adhere to building regulations. If you’re making major renovations that will alter the structure of your home, you may have to apply for planning permission from your local authority – usually at a cost of around £1,000.

In October 2008, however, the government relaxed the rules on this. Now some renovations, such as loft conversions, don’t require planning permission, so long as the work falls within certain criteria.

Full details, as well as the process and costs of applying, are available at planningportal.gov.uk.

Beware Of Building Cowboys

Finding a reputable builder to carry out work can feel like searching for a needle in a haystack. The most obvious way to reduce the chances of encountering an unscrupulous builder is by using a firm belonging to a trade body.

Under Budgeting
Once you’ve established what work needs to be done, you’ll need to spend almost as long on the planning and budgeting as on the renovation itself. Under-budgeting is by far the single most common mistake people make when they embark on home improvements, so do your homework and keep within your means.

Leasehold Property

If your property is leasehold even if planning permission is granted and building regulations are met, you’ll still need to get the official green light from the freeholder before you can go ahead with major renovations.

Insurance
Making major alterations to your home will prompt the need to review your buildings insurance cover, which is calculated on how much it will cost to rebuild your home rather than its market value. So make sure you update insurers with any changes, before the dust settles. If you have failed to disclose a new extension which shows signs of subsidence, you won’t be covered.

Entire Houze – Four Types of home renovation which ones will boost the value of your Property?

Home improvements can breathe new life into a property and ultimately add more value.

You could spend thousands increasing the value of your property but which would give your home’s value the biggest boost? North London builders Entire Houze take a closer look here.

A study by the National Association of Estate Agents in 2015 uncovered the top home enhancements that could increase the value of your property.

Kitchen Installation North London

Most people consider the kitchen to be the heart of the home, and because of this, updates in this room pay off. Get the biggest bang for your buck on a kitchen installation by looking at colour. Fresh paint, in modern colours, can go a long way towards updating the look of your kitchen. Done well you could look to recoup 60-120{6c4b9d3d2fdca7ad57bef894ec04e07a5922904b84f863aa9c3468340681c776} on your kitchen remodelling.

Bathroom Installation North London

If your home only has one bathroom, you can recoup a large chunk of your investment by adding another one. When it comes to finding room in your house for an extra bathroom, take a look at any extra rooms or under-utilised spaces. Consider other spaces, such as storage cupboards or areas under the stairs. Adding an additional bathroom shows a return of 80-130{6c4b9d3d2fdca7ad57bef894ec04e07a5922904b84f863aa9c3468340681c776} on what you invest.

Home Extensions North London

Extensions can vary hugely, from two-story ones that double a house in size to the expansion of an additional ground floor room. A home extension done well that includes additional rooms in a way that is thoughtful to your home or changes its character soundly can be a noteworthy offering point – and one you can appreciate for a long time as a owner.

A Change Of Space

Including an additional room can add around 9 to 10{6c4b9d3d2fdca7ad57bef894ec04e07a5922904b84f863aa9c3468340681c776} value to your home. It is critical to not eat into living space to do it, but rather if there is space to venture into your space you could get a respectable return – and some quite required additional space, for example converting a garage, or a loft conversion

Depending on the size and the location of your property, you should expect to pay £15,000 for a small loft conversion or £25,000 to £40,000 for a big one.
