When your family grows, the home tends to shrink – to the point where it doesn’t work for your family any longer. The natural response is to consider moving. But what if you have family ties in the Oxford area or your kids go to an excellent school in Abingdon and you don’t want to move? Well, we have good news – you have options. If you yearn to remain part of your community and keep your home comforts, you’ll need to consider house alterations and renovations to create much-needed space.
If it’s an extra bedroom you require then a loft conversion is a great way to achieve it. There are different styles of conversion, depending on the type of roof you have. The design of the roof on your home will also impact on the cost and duration of the renovations. Loft conversions can provide a generous bedroom space for older children to express their individuality.
If you have lofty ambitions for your home, you might contemplate an extension to create space. As well as additional bedrooms, an extension can provide office space, a second bathroom or a playroom. With a two-storey extension, you will discover you have many options to rejuvenate a crowded home.
Loft conversions and extensions are the most extreme forms of home renovation, but there are more straightforward and cheaper house alterations that will generate space.
When you find yourself tripping over people in the lounge or kitchen, maybe it’s time to remove that load-bearing wall or chimney breast? Although you might require the permission of the Local Authority Building Control, taking out walls can open up rooms, turning a cramped house into something spacious and comfortable.
