There are few things we cannot change about properties. Granted, we cannot change the location, and rarely can we make the plot larger. There remains a huge amount about a property that can be changed.
Beyond the decoration, owners can transform a home with furnishings or even structural changes.
The potential each property has for change tells us that we can always get more from our home. Whether you live in a London flat or a Yorkshire manor house, there’s nothing standing between you and your dream home.
Here, we take a look at a few things you can do to ensure you’re getting the most from your home.
Open up to light
Natural light is a welcome addition to any home. Smaller properties can be opened up by light, while larger properties benefit from an undeniable freshness and a new lease of life. For this reason, it’s important to maximise the natural light which flows through your home.
Short of fitting larger windows, there are a number of things you can do to achieve this goal. Be sure to avoid covering windows with curtains or blinds when you don’t need to. It’s also important to avoid blocking windows with furniture.
Consider going open plan
The decision to go open plan in your main living area can transform your property, sometimes adding heaps of value. Open plan designs can be more social and are a simple means of acquiring more space. The decision is a big one though, as it can be a bad move in larger home and can make for bigger utility bills.
You don’t need to splash out on structural changes to get more from your property. Taking a brief look at property for sale in Chelmsford, you’ll notice that the most attractive properties are those which have been freshly decorated.
It’s amazing how clean and modern a room can be made by a simple paint job.
Cherish your garden
Outside space is a valuable commodity and it’s a shame to let it go unloved. You don’t need to be out in the garden for hours a day to transform your garden into a paradise. Taking the time a few times a year to plant out some seasonal plants and to crop existing plants will make a real difference. Try to clear some space to make your garden perfect for entertaining.
