Buying, selling, moving. With its associated costs, it’s no wonder that more and more people are turning to renovating rather than relocating.
Renovating is a great way to spend money directly on improving the way you live.
Clever design often maximises storage and promotes efficient use space (often through multipurpose rooms and open planning).
It’s a great, sustainable way to consider a building as something that can be altered and adjusted to suit your needs, rather than demolished and rebuilt.
Just think of beautiful terrace houses that have gradually been adapted over their 100 year life yet continue to serve the inhabitants.
The images in this blog come from Small Spaces Interior Design. The 65m2 garden apartment [completely renovated by SSID] was valued at $150k more than what the owners bought it for three years prior in 2010. This, following a $45k construction budget!
