Interesting Design Features To Add To Your Home

Do any of us have the perfect home? Unless you have a millionaire's budget there is likely to be things that you want to change. Maybe your house is too small, your rooms too dark or you need some extra space to chill out.  Here are some interesting design features to add to your home to make it lighter, brighter, bigger and more interesting. 

Conservatory



A conservatory is an excellent way to add extra space to your home and is not just for hotels and cafes. A conservatory made of glass panels is very light and airy and can be a lovely place to sit in the Summer or Winter especially.

It is also one of the ways to add extra value to your home according to property expert Phil Spencer and we all want that don't we?

Loft Conversion



If you need more space in your home but can't afford to move consider a loft conversion. A loft conversion is another way of increasing the value in your home whilst creating extra space. 

A loft conversion can be used for another bedroom, a cinema room or a music room for example and is a great design feature that all the family can enjoy.

Bi-Fold Doors



Luxury bi-fold doors are a great addition to any home. By having bi-fold doors installed you can bring the outdoors in, and you can sit in comfort in your lovely warm house when it's cold outside and look out at the garden.

They also maximise the natural light and dispels the gloom in any dark room, whilst being cheaper than an extension or loft conversion.

Skylights


Adding skylights to a dark room can really brighten it up and make it feel lighter whilst given us the added benefit of vitamin D from the sun.

Modern UPVC skylights are self-cleaning and thermally efficient too so keep the heat in whilst saving your money on your energy bills.

Garage



Adding a garage to your home can be really worthwhile to help protect your car and lower your car insurance but if you don't have a car or need the space consider converting the garage into another room. 

Adding extra rooms to you home can really add value as well giving you that chill out space. You could even rent the space out.

Wine Cellar



If you are a connoisseur of wine, why not make a wine cellar in your basement? 

There are many websites out there that can help you with the conversion and can suggest the materials you need such as an air conditioning unit to keep the wine at the correct temperature, moisture resistant flooring and paint. When it's done you can sit and relax with a glass of wine enjoying your new cellar.

Tell me would do you have any of these design features in your home or would an appeal to you?

  5. We have two skylights in one room that make the area cheery no matter what the weather. Every suggestion you've made has been added to my "to do" list. Good ideas make it easier to change the way a home looks.
