We have created a guide on how to completely renovate a property to turn it into a stylish and liveable home for others. All these steps are relatively simple and don’t require much work at all.

Allow natural light into the property

Natural light helps a property look aesthetically pleasing, as well as providing occupants with health benefits. It can help to increase their productivity and comfort, as well as providing mental and visual stimulation. Find out more about tenants agreements throughout this process.

It is easy to achieve in any property, but natural lighting can come with style. Glass fronted frameless doors are a good way of letting in natural lights into your supermarket or smaller retail premise. They also compliment the storefront or shop windows. See here.

Choosing Appropriate Roofing

Roofing is a key part of developing a property is choosing the right roofing option. Good roofing ensures things such as improved energy efficiency, extreme weather resistance and property value.

There are lots of things to consider when looking at your options for roofing.

Our recommendation:

Flat Roofing

Flat roofing is one of our recommended roofing options for new property developments for a number of reasons:

  1. Environmentally Friendly – Flat roofing is often made from EPDM rubber. Meaning it is hardwearing, long-lasting and recyclable. Making it one of the most environmentally friendly roofing options. How Long Do Rubber Roofs Last?
  2. Easy to install – Flat roofing, especially rubber roofing is a quick and easy process to install
  3. Better for Energy Efficiency – Flat roofs are easy to install, meaning less energy such as heating and cooling systems is lost through poor installation.

Making the most out of existing features

Many period houses will have fireplaces; some may not be in use whereas others may just look old and decrepitated. It is easy to clean a fireplace and bring it back to life with the right tools. Discover how to open up a fireplace.

Fireplaces provide a feature piece for an important room, and they are just as beautiful as when they were first installed.

However, if you are unsure whether or not the fireplace is safe, it is important to always get it checked. Contact Fireplace Studio to have your fireplace checked in East Midlands.

 Adding the final touches

Depending on the condition of the existing walls, plastering may be an option to create smooth, new walls so paint and wallpaper can be applied perfectly.

However, plastering can be a lengthy process as it can take up to six weeks to dry, depending on the amount that was applied. Click here to learn more about the plastering process.

Once you know the plaster has dried correctly, it is now time to finish those walls off and decorate it suitably to the rest of the house, or the features in the current room. If you’re painting a room that will infuse a lot of moisture, such as the bathroom and kitchen, then using a moisture-resistant paint is advised. Dulux supply these, click here.
