We have been in our home for nearly 10 years and throughout that time, we have been trying to improve our home with various updates and renovations. When we first bought the house, it came with a decent size garden which allowed us to build a conservatory. It flows nicely with the rest of the house and has given us much more room for our children to play.
Next we landscaped our back garden and it now has decking and rows of evergreen plants. It is a great place for all of us to enjoy especially during the summer.
As we have been living here for almost 10 years, some parts of our house was looking a little tired and needed a fresh lick of paint or a complete refresh. Early last month, we changed our shower cubical and painted the walls. Then we updated it with some soft furnishings and now it looks almost brand new.
Our house has so much of potential for us to work on and improve. Not forgetting the loft and garage. In fact, in many homes, the garage is no longer a place to store your precious car. It is a place for you to store junk. If you lack of space, you might want to convert it into a work place.
