1. Declutter to create more space
Why: Does your house feel packed with lots of things, old chairs and cupboards, unused cardboard box of items that are left in the past, too many shelves too little space? Well, then it's time to rearrange the space a bit: the whole purpose of it: to create more space!
"Clean rooms with empty spaces on shelves (and cupboards that are neat and tidy) give the impression of space and organization."
2. Open up! Knock out unuseful walls!
Why: Did you ever wonder why your house is designed the way it is, did you find that there's some unused walls that are just built there for no particular reasons?
Knocking out non-structural walls or removing space barriers like kitchen island benches is a great value-add to make a home appear larger than it really is. If you are planning to sell your property, then removing walls is the way to go -> it creates a sense of flow will generate a positive response from choosy buyers. And it’s much cheaper than renovating and rebuilding from scratch. Talk to a home building designer /interior designer to help you out with the internal "flow"!
3. Build out that extra space!
Why: Do you have that overly large backyard full of grass that has never been cut, is that "bushy" area used?
Residential extensions is very common nowadays especially if you have a decent large land, with that extra 40 square metre of space, you can easily fit another bedroom and a study; definitely going to give you a good value adding to your home! A specialist in residential drafting design service will able to assist you with all the paper work and help you with the DA approvals to your sydney councils.
4. Upgrade your kitchens & bathrooms
These are the most valuable rooms in any home. Spiffing up the kitchen and bath is a sure bet for adding value to your home. It’s unlikely to be economical to do a major renovation but some upgrades are cheap, easy, and fast, especially in the bathroom. Generally, gettting some upgraded appliances and cupboards will do a good job; contact a home building designer/interior designer will help get the job right at an affordable cost.
5. Create the renovation master plan
