Interesting Design Features To Add To A 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 relax in.  Here are some interesting design features to add to your home to make it lighter, brighter, bigger and more interesting. 

Feature Wall

If you haven't got the budget for major changes then a feature wall makes a good compromise. Adding bespoke bedroom wall murals can make a bedroom more interesting, especially if the rest of it is in a neutral colour. Providing maximum impact you can buy wallpaper UK online or from a home store and there is a range of budgets to suit all prices. 


Adding skylights to a dark room can really brighten it up and make it feel lighter whilst giving 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.



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.


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 your 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 any of these appeal to you?
