There are always plenty of reasons to make home improvements but with the coronavirus pandemic forcing you to stay at home more often, why not make the most of your time with some home improvements in 2021.
Home improvement ideas for next year will most likely be along the lines of home entertainment and entertaining guests. Whilst bars, clubs, restaurants and cinemas are closed to the general public, you have to organise get-togethers with family and friends in your own home.
Before you start a home improvement project, it’s worth considering ways of adding value to your property. The suggestions below are covering all the bases.
Buy Bi-Fold Doors
Installing bi-fold doors provides a stunning contemporary environment which you can enjoy alone or with friends. Unlike traditional patio doors that slide one behind the other, bi-fold doors collapse in onto itself, thus completely opening up the wall and creating more space.
Bi-fold doors create a seamless connection between the interior of your home and the garden. The most popular choices are to extend the kitchen to create an outdoor dining area or to extend the living room with an outdoor space.
Add An Orangery Extension
If you really want to impress your friends and neighbours, add an orangery extension to the rear of your home. Orangeries are brick and glass structures inspired by the traditional 17th-Century orangeries that were used for tendering to exotic plants. These stylish conservatories are all about the design and ooze class.
An Orangery allows natural sunlight to flood the space and provide a link between the house and the garden. They can also be enjoyed all year round and used for multiple purposes such as reading, kid’s playroom, entertaining guests, extending your living room and more.
Conceal Your Unsightly Boiler
Modern boilers are a vital component in every home but they are unsightly. Concealing boilers with a kitchen unit, chalkboard, or even a simple boiler cupboard is a design trend that also hides your embarrassment when anybody visits.
Not only that but energy supplier, Npower claim an unconcealed boiler could hinder house sales. Research showed that unsightly boilers on full display promoted buyers to negotiate a reduction in price by as much as £5000.
Install Outdoor Decking
The look of natural wood offers an aesthetically pleasing feature to the exterior of your home. Outdoor decking instantly accentuates the beauty of your garden without having to put in hours of effort.
Outdoor decking is a popular choice of decor because natural wood is strong, durable and easy to maintain. Decking is also available in a broad range of panels including oak, teak and pine, all of which have a sophisticated feel.
Renovate The Attic or Basement
If you’re up for a major renovation project, you may want to consider converting your attic or basement. There are multiple ways you can renovate attics and basement to fulfil their potential. For entertainment purposes, contemplate building a games room complete with drinks bar, comfortable seating and home cinema.
If entertainment is central to your lifestyle choices, it makes sense to engage in home improvement projects that enable you to indulge in the things that you love doing the most. Until scientists find a cure for Covid-19, 2021 is the year when you will have plenty of time on your hands to create your dream home.
