The beauty about being retired is the time available to sit and watch daytime tv programmes, particularly from the very wide selection from the lifestyle genre. We are bombarded with them in fact, from the ones dedicated to house auctions – and golly, some of those ar so ghastly, I could never imagine being so desperate to even walk in one, let alone hand over my very hard earned wonga to buy them! The transformation of most of the places is encouraging, although my heart does sink when the buyers are a father and son. . . . . I alreay know that the kitchen will have black council washroom block tiles!
A professional house inerior agency will always be able to advice and provide good workmanship if families have property they need to get ready for the renting or sales market. They will be worth the fee to bring in the highest rent or sales figure.
Where we live there are hundreds of nice comfortable family sized houses, a development started in the mid 1990s and finally completed in the early 2000s. Our house was plot 422 so we assumed there were 421 before ours and it looks, without counting, to be a further 50 that made up the last phase. They are indeed comfortable and very spacious, well as much as could be at the time. Four or five bedroomed, with one or two ensuites as well as standard bathrooms and a downstairs cloakroom. The outsides are all taken from any one of only about six designs and that in turn governed the internal layout – so basically all very similar.
These days with the cost of building land rise and the purses of buyers reduced, there has been a move to more economical sized homes, with 3 storey town houses replacing the executive detatched. The more streamlined scandinavian look has replaced the false gables and twiddly tiling style.
In these very busy and challenging business times, there has been a marked iincrease in the number of houses advertising Sold signs around here. The boom in house sales reflects the market trend nationally and as the houses never seem to show For Sale in the first place, there is no obvious downturn in the numbers of families desperate to upsize. This is very good for many sectors of industry and local busunesses. Usually when a house changes hands, there are many activites that take place after the old family moves out before the new one even starts packing.
It would seem that although these houses were built as comfortable executive 4/5 bedroomed detached, and were considered massive and very adequate when we all moved in some years ago, today’s family demands more. So fleets of interior designers are busily upgrading these houses to suit the new breed of executive family. And very happy everyone is with the results it would seem!
The joy of moving into a brand new house cannot every be over emphasised. Particularly if the buyers have spent many years working their way up from the shabby little one bedroomed rented flat, to the less shabby but still rented, two bedroomed flat. Then the first purchase, be it the next flat or even a small house. With it came the responsibility of home ownership, maintenance and keeping it safe and saleable.
Now when the house has been lived in for some years, perhaps the family has come along, each room getting more full and space becomes a real premium. It isn’t always easy to sell and buy a bigger house. There are many factors to consider. So getting a home interior design studio onboard can really make the difference. A redisign will greatly enhance the living quality and add substantially to the value of the home – double joy all round.
There are a crop of houses immediately within my neighbourhood area, we being set in small enclaves of 3 or 4 similar properties, each off a quiet leafy estate road. When my family moved into our new house at the beginning of this century (!), everything in it from the tiniest detail seemed to be utterly modern, gorgeous and luxurious. Friends from our old village and family members almost queued up outside to look round and utter pleasantries.
Now recently with the lack of large affordable family houses coming on to the market, families are wanting to move up the scale but cannot do so. So rather than fall over each other, the practical solution is to engage interior design studios who will redesign the interiors, msaximising living space, and as in the case of two neighbours, build on more rooms – and of course the double or triple garages are ideal and ripe for conversion.
