If you are planning to renovate your London house, by adding an extension or by renovating the area, there are various smart design hacks. By using these, you can carve out a space that will look both aesthetic and practical. However, as many social media’s interior accounts have shown, you don’t require a big house, or a whopping budget, or access to an interior designer to build a beautiful home. Here are our best design tricks to improve your property:

London House Extensions

If you want to attach square footage to your home, an extension is an ideal way to carry on the scheme. There are various extension options you can select from. It may include a cost-effective side return to a two-storey extension that will completely transform your home. Regardless of the available options, you should remain enthusiastic about finding the right one for you. Extensions do come along away from utilitarian boxes fixed to the back of your property.

Nowadays, extensions have become a work of art that takes pride in its beautiful architectural features, including skylights that tend to enlighten the space as they open up to the garden creating unbelievable indoor-outdoor spaces, making your home an enviable abode.

However, the cost of an extension can be problematic. However, if you are blessed with a benign neighbour, you could do just any other London family. You can collaborate with your neighbour to create an extension to benefit both houses, financially as well as architecturally, and aesthetically.

Think vertical

Amid the soaring property prices in the UK, houses in London are getting smaller and smaller. So, it makes us find viable options on how to make the optimal use of your existing space. In London, one design that is rapidly gaining traction is the creation of vertical rooms, the best example of an ideal house extension.

It usually involves creating vertical storage spaces. Rachel Khoo’s London apartment renovation is an example for a better understanding. As part of the extension, bespoke built-in storage was installed that went from the floor to the ceiling, with the addition of a fold-down bed for guests.

Another property that was transformed in the same vertical manner is a micro flat in Chelsea. This exquisite house extension in London was featured in the Evening Standard’s home and property site. The owners, both architects, added a 9m square bedroom for guests, plus a 6sqm of storage and a tiny office into a 60sqm apartment. They did it by building two mezzanine levels and built-in vertical storage.

Smart storage solutions

Many properties in London, both new and period houses, are destitute of dedicated storage space. Yet, if you’re planning to renovate, then adding storage is always advisable. Besides, you don’t always have to lose the floor area to gain this. Less utilized space like awkward nooks and crannies may be used to create bespoke built-in storage. You can also use any steps you can have for storage either by making draws into the treads or smartly designing that is created with innovative design ideas.
