Our latest article looks at 5 ways to refurbish your property to improve your living space.

Kitchen space

In our opinion, it’s usually a kitchen that sells a house and is the main focus point of any refurbishment. A well-planned kitchen renovation project is a tremendous way to improve your kitchen. Therefore, remodelling your kitchen with the help of experts is very beneficial to you as the homeowner. With the kitchen being one of the essential rooms in your home you can consider buying new and functional cabinets, sink fixtures, changing the tile flooring, updating appliances as well as the kitchen lighting. From our experience a kitchen island is always a popular request.

Bathroom space

A newly renovated, new look bathroom with a modern, clean look and feel and the latest appliances and accessories will go a long way to add value to your home. Though it may apparently seem that bathroom renovation is a hefty investment, it actually saves money for you. An old, shabby bathroom will result in perpetual expenses as it will pose a lot of plumbing and sanitation issues. There can also be recurring problems of leaking showers and pipes, clogged drains, and the likes. So when you have your bathroom renovated, you can get rid of all these recurring expenses, which actually act as a money saver.


Maybe not your first thought when you think of refurbishments, but the stairs can be the first focal point on entrance and well thought out stairs can have a huge impact on the look of your home. Stairs can completely transform your home and a new staircase can uplift and modernise your decor instantly. Simple changes such as adding glass to the balustrade can make a huge difference if a full renovation is not required.


Ceilings have the potential to make or break a room, and it’s smart to include ceiling design features in any refurbishment. This can include a simple job from replastering and repainting to more complex ceilings like exposed beams, partial drop ceilings, vaulted ceilings and even a change of height. A ceiling refurb often brings in a wealth of light and open space to your home.

Enhance the exterior

We advise our clients to make other minor repairs such as repointing brick walls and replacing any cracked side boards to enhance the exterior of a property but a new front door or porch can be a cost effective but dramatic change to the outside look. We have built a range of porches including wall mounted, floor mounted, low brick plinth, high brick plinth and full height porches in a variety and combination of materials to suit your building.

One of the biggest benefits of having a porch is the increased security it brings to your home, particularly with an enclosed porch. Your porch will effectively double the security of your front entrance as it will include two doorways to get through before entering your home. Both doorways can be fitted with strong UPVC doors and robust locking systems. In porches with glazing and side windows, you also have the advantage of being able to see who’s at your door before letting them in.
