Why convert a bungalow?
Converting your bungalow with Refresh Interiors is one of the most exciting ways to transform your living space and add value to your home. Bungalows are extremely diverse and can be converted in a number of ways, with a loft or garage conversion or by extending the property outwards.
At Refresh Interiors, we have been transforming homes for over 10 years, and will use our considerable design and construction expertise to guide you through your bungalow conversion or extension in the most hassle-free way possible. As a family business, we offer a professional yet personal touch to every project we undertake.
If you have a garage, this can be converted into an extra bedroom, bathroom or living space to complement your home. A garage conversion can provide all the space you require without the stress of moving house, as well as adding up to 10% to the resale value. Planning permission is not usually required to convert a garage if you are not altering the shape or size of the building, but the project must comply with building regulations. Refresh Interiors will not only manage the build, but liaise with your local Essex authorities to ensure that all legal requirements are met.
To fit every home, even bungalows, there are a range of different loft conversions available which can provide you with the additional living space you need by turning a traditional bungalow into a two-story home.
As with every project, we will continually discuss your options with you throughout the conversion process to ensure your needs are met. As with garage conversions, planning permission is not usually required for loft conversions, but Refresh Interiors will always liaise with the relevant local authorities to ensure that the project is in compliance with all legal requirements.
Bungalow extensions and spacious exteriors
Bungalows may offer enormous scope for an outward extension to the side or rear, as they tend to be built on a larger plot and often have larger gardens. This can provide a fantastic basis on which to build creatively and thoughtfully, utilising features such as bi-fold doors to create links between the outdoor and indoor space.
Go open plan
When converting a bungalow, a rethink of the original layout may be necessary as bungalows tend to be unusual and may have access to the garden through a bedroom or side room. Swapping separate rooms for an open-plan design or using windows to bring additional light into space can create a sense of space without needing to build an extension or convert the loft. Refresh Interiors can advise you on the safest and best way to achieve any layout changes.
With you every step of the way
At Refresh Interiors, we will use our experience as the specialist home improvement providers serving the Essex region to manage your conversions and liaise with the relevant building inspectors and authorities at every turn. We only ever employ highly-skilled workers using the best available tools and materials to ensure the highest standard is met with every project. Every conversion is project managed by a Director, who will be available 24/7 to resolve any queries which may arise as swiftly as possible.
A full 24-month guarantee is built into every project, so that in the unlikely event that any issues should occur once the project has been signed off, we will be on hand to fix them for you.
