New Year New Home

Published on Friday, 1st December 2017

Categories: Home Improvement

On most people’s new year’s resolutions list we’d expect to see eat healthily, give up chocolate and exercise more, but at AJG we like to think a bit bigger, a lot bigger in fact…

New year new home

We would love to help you kickstart your new year with a new home. Not a brand-new home, don’t worry we’re not suggesting you move-house, on the contrary – we’re talking about renovating or refurbishing your existing home with one or more alterations that you’ve either been putting off or haven’t even considered.

Renovating your home can add serious value to your property (always a smart move) and make a big impact on the way you and your family currently live. Imagine having more space, yet more privacy, a bigger bathroom or a new home-office to start that business you’ve always dreamed of. Read on for some fresh inspiration on how to make 2018 the year of your new home!

Add a loft conversion

Converting your loft adds an average of 21% to the value of your property. This may equate to around £49,000 in Penkridge for example where we are based. Adding a loft conversion can free up vital space that for the most people is predominantly used as storage. Installing a Velux window will bring natural light into your roof space providing a stylish and comfortable work or play space for a home office, extra bedroom or playroom. Always needed that bolthole to escape the mayhem? Here’s your answer!

The magic of a garage conversion

One of the simplest ways to conjure up a whole new room in your house, as if by magic, is to convert your garage. An integral garage can easily be transformed into a downstairs bedroom for those with additional mobility requirements, a study room for stay-at-home students, a playroom for active toddlers, a craft room for the creatives in your family or a home-office for the entrepreneurial types. This type of conversion is actually one on the least complicated in terms of building work so you may find this the perfect solution if you’ve previously thought you need to move house to gain more space. Ask us for a free estimate and we’ll be happy to pop round to assess.

Simple but dramatic alterations

From fireplaces to staircases to brand new conservatories, large or small there are key alterations that will make a huge impact on your home.

The focal point of any living room is the fireplace. We’ve recently updated fireplaces for clients across Staffordshire, giving the living room a contemporary and stylish update whilst maintaining practicability.
