Many good intentions can fall by the wayside or fail to get the desired results. But investing in the right renovations to your home really can transform your day-to-day life. Or if you are thinking of selling, they can significantly boost the property’s value.

Adding a conservatory or orangery is a very popular option, both for increasing the value of a home and providing a whole new living space.

Orangeries are typically less ‘glassy’ than conservatories, with more solidity to the walls and roof.

Whether the architecture of your home is traditional or modern, there will be a design to suit it. A conservatory can take the form of an extension to an existing room, a ‘halfway house’ between the main building and the garden, or a new space to accommodate a playroom, office or gym.

Once you have one, you will probably wonder how you ever managed without it – and they are very attractive to buyers.

Alternatively, you could bring more light and a sense of space to your home by installing glass doors or French windows, leading out on to the garden or terrace. Bi-folding doors, which concertina sideways, give a very contemporary look and can be adjusted to let in as much air as you want.

Glass doors give a room a completely different feel and could be the starting point for a whole new style of décor, both inside and outside. They can be used to great effect in renovating a dated-looking property.

Another very worthwhile investment is new windows. Again, these can be a striking design statement and give an immediate lift to the property’s appearance. Double glazing, if you do not already have it, will keep the house warmer and is also good for reducing noise from outside; most housebuyers consider it essential. UPVC window frames are very good for providing both heat and sound insulation.

If you are having your windows replaced, don’t forget about your front door. Once your new windows are installed, the door may well look dated or scruffy if it does not match their style. For house sellers, one tip for making an immediate good impression is to make sure your front door stands out from those of the neighbouring homes by looking particularly smart, stylish and well-maintained.

If you are now feeling inspired to spruce up and add value to your home, you may be impatient to get started.

But planning your home renovation properly is crucial.

Badly-designed or installed windows, doors and conservatories can look awful and are likely to reduce the value of a property. It is also important to think about your home security; these are all potential points of entry into your house, and you will want to be sure that they will not be vulnerable to burglars or other unwelcome visitors.

This is the time to turn to an experienced, trusted group of experts, who can guide you through the home renovation process.
