Why convert a bungalow?
Bungalows are extremely diverse properties that provide ample opportunity for conversion. With Refresh Interiors, you can extend upwards, outwards, or transform a loft or garage into new living space, adding value to your home in the process.
At Refresh Interiors are a family business who have been transforming properties across North London for over a decade, and will use that considerable expertise to guide you through a hassle-free bungalow conversion. We pride ourselves on our professional approach and add a personal touch to every project.
If your bungalow has a garage that might be better put to use as an extra bedroom, bathroom or living space, Refresh Interiors can make this a reality. A garage conversion can give you the ideal amount of room without the extra stress of relocating.
However, should you eventually decide to move, this transformation may have added 10%, or even more, to your property’s resale value. As long as you’re not altering the shape or size of the building, you do not usually need planning permission to convert a garage. However, it’s still important to comply with any building regulations, so as well as managing the build, where necessary Refresh Interiors will liaise with your North London local authority to ensure that all legal requirements are met.
Loft conversions are a great benefit to any home, and can add valuable living space to your bungalow by turning it into a two-story property. We will conduct a full loft assessment to determine the right conversion type for your bungalow, including whether you require any additional height, and continually discuss your options throughout the project.
As with garage conversions, planning permissions is not usually required to convert your loft, but Refresh Interiors will liaise with the relevant authorities to ensure that every aspect of the project complies with legal requirements.
Bungalow extensions and spacious exteriors
Usually built on large plots with more outdoor space, bungalows offer extensive scope for an outward extension. This can allow for an even more creative conversion, connecting the inside and outside of your property with features such as bi-fold or french doors for ease of access.
Side or rear extensions can usually be carried out without planning permission, but Refresh Interiors will always consult with local authorities and officials before undertaking any work.
Go open plan
Bungalows tend to have a more unusual layout than a property with two or more stories. For this reason, it may be necessary to rethink and rearrange certain aspects of your home before carrying out the conversion. This can be a great opportunity to create a sense of space or bring additional light into a room by opting for an open-plan design or utilising windows. For any layout changes, Refresh Interiors will consult with you and offer advice on the best and safest solution.
