Don’t move, improve!

Dont move improve guide

With housing developers building increasingly smaller new-build homes for more and more money -you may be more open to improving than moving – especially if you like the location of your current property.

If you are looking for more space with a bigger, open plan kitchen to entertain family or friends, a more tranquil bedroom with great storage options or a home office to move into when the dining table can no longer cope – then improving could be the key to happiness and Direct Kitchens can help with that!

Investing in a new kitchen, an extension or a simple bedroom or home office upgrade could provide you with the added space you are looking for. It could also add £££’s to the value of your home should you want to sell down the line.

The most popular improvement projects in recent years have been single story extensions at the rear of properties to create a large open plan kitchen / living space. This type of extension tends to cost anywhere between £20,000 and £40,000, and loft conversions which offer more scope to create extra bedrooms and bathrooms, typically cost from £15,000 up to about £50,000.

If an extension isn’t in the budget, then simply upgrading your kitchen and changing the layout could add more space to your home. Our designers have in-depth knowledge of the best typical layouts depending on usage, which can be tailored per household.
