Converting your bungalow can not only give you the added benefit of extra living space to do with as you please, but it also can add value to your property. There’s many ways you can add space to your bungalow, usually upwards by converting the loft areas or outwards, by adding a home extension.
At Refresh Interiors we use our expansive design and construction knowledge and experience to assist you every step of the way through your bungalow extensions or conversions. We always offer a professional yet personal approach to each and every project we undertake.
If you have a garage, you can convert this into an extra bedroom, bathroom, or additional living space. A garage conversion can give you the perfect amount of room whatever your needs, without the stress that comes with moving house. Garage conversions usually do not require planning permission if you are not going to alter the shape or size of the building. Converting a garage can add up to 10% of the value to your home, meaning it’s one of the most cost-effective ways to improve your home and the resale value.
To fit every home, even bungalows, there are different loft conversion types available to provide you with additional living space and turn a traditional bungalow into a two storey home.
To ensure the perfect finish to your conversion, we will continually discuss with you the options available for your home throughout the project. As with garage conversions, planning permission is not required with most cases, however they must comply with building regulations. Refresh Interiors will manage not just the build but the whole process for you, liaising with local authorities to ensure that all legal requirements are met.
Bungalow extensions & spacious exteriors
Traditionally, bungalows tend to be built on a large plot and often have larger gardens, allowing for room to expand the building outwards towards the side or rear. This can offer a fantastic canvass to realise your home improvement dreams, and with thoughtful planning and utilising features such as bi-fold doors, this can be a spacious way to create links between the garden and the inside of the home.
We have close links with local architects who can help bring your ideas to life, and work closely with planning authorities, so that we can best advise you of how to achieve the finished result you are looking for.
Go open plan
Often, you will find a bungalow has unusual layouts and garden access may be through a bedroom or side room. When deciding to convert your bungalow into a family home, it may be necessary to rethink the layout, and swap separate rooms for an open-plan layout, or bring additional light into space with clever use of windows. This can help bring a sense of space into your home without the need of building an extension or converting the loft.
Refresh Interiors can assist you with any layout changes that you wish to make, whilst advising you of the best and safest way to achieve this.
