LIFESTYLE – does your house reflect your current lifestyle? Have you kept it up to date with your family’s current needs and requirements? Do you still have a spare guest bedroom that’s only used once a year, yet have no space for a much-needed office? Do you have a dining room that you only use occasionally, yet a house full of toys and no playroom? Consider your room use carefully. What type of rooms do you really need right now, and which rooms do you hardly ever use?
• Carefully consider your lifestyle – how you socialise, what interests you have, and allow enough space for this to take place comfortably
• As your lifestyle changes, adapt your house to suit. For example, if you develop an interest in fitness, remove your old solarium and replace it with some gym equipment
If the makeover is for selling purposes…
- Sell a lifestyle – buyers want to imagine how much more they can do in this house
- Re-think the room use, and present the house for sale in the most sellable way – have beds in all bedrooms, have a dining room etc
Here are some examples:
