Top Ways To Save When You ExtendPublished on 18th October 2018
In the past few years the UK has seen a major trend towards improving your current home. Whether that’s to avoid a move, or to make a move a little more with while. Whatever your reason, it’s always nice to save some wonga when it comes to home improvement. Without scrimping on quality, of course.
Can you have the best of both worlds?
It is possible to create a beautiful – and useful – home extension, without breaking the bank. You just need to be a bit savvy with how, and where, you spend. Which is why we’re looking into the myriad ways you can save yourself time and money once you’ve chosen to extend your current abode.
Here are just a few ways you can save when you extend:
- Shop Around –It’s well worth doing your research to make sure you strike a good balance between quality and price. It’s no good getting a cheap deal now; only to be forced into shelling out for fixes later. So make sure the company you choose uses quality materials and works to the regulated UK standards at all times.Apropos offer bespoke designs of the highest quality. All lovingly designed and manufactured right here in the UK to top standards. If you do shop around and find that a like for like product is offered at a better price elsewhere, get in touch! Our Price Promise means we won’t be undersold on any like for like product – so shopping around pays both ways.
- Get Exactly What You Want –You should never rush into a big lifestyle change, and improving your home is no exception. Be sure you know exactly what you want before you buy. Avoiding changes of mind which could cost far more than they would have were they included in the original plans.Bespoke designs can go a long way to combating these problems; giving you the ability to personally oversee the design of your structure. A bespoke design also allows for any personal quirks and characteristics of the host property. These can be dealt with at design stage as simply as possible – as opposed to costly corrections mid installation. Apropos bespoke designs offer peace of mind by ensuring you get exactly what you want, and won’t want to change a single thing for many years.
- Be Savvy When it Comes to Style – Once the larger work is out of the way, you’ll be wanted to decorate your new space. To save on costs, avoid being tempted by a full scale home refurbishment. Instead, focus on bringing the new extension into pace with the rest of your home. Seamless style should run from old to new to avoid a glaringly obvious transition.Wherever possible, chose minimal fuss interiors. If you’ve gone ahead with an apropos, this will allow the architectural design of the structure to shine. It also means you need to splash far less cash on finishing touches. Paint effects can be found on YouTube saving you the hassle and expense of wallpapering a feature wall. For flooring, shop around and keep an eye on Ebay and Gumtree for excess tiles or floorboards others no longer have need of.
