With the continuing uncertainty in the housing market, more and more people are deciding to choose not to sell their property and are instead opting to maximize the potential of what they already own.
Conservatories and extensions have long been an extremely effective means to improve homes, but Real Flame has seen increasingly that one of the more popular options is to renovate what is considered by many to be one of the main focal points in the home – the fireplace.
Whilst the housing market is in turmoil it is often better to develop your current assets and increase the value of your home, rather than settle for less than you had hoped, or worsen your financial situation. Even if you do decide to sell and move on in the future, adding extra features or making improvements to your house can greatly increase its value. All of this can be accomplished now, so that you can get the most out of your home whilst waiting for the housing market to recover.
Living rooms and lounge areas are becoming increasingly popular as the focal point of the household, with more people choosing to opt for nights in than nights out. This means that they are utilising the space that they have more effectively whilst creating spaces that can be enjoyed to their full potential.
In addition to making your home more comfortable, improving your heating system can be beneficial to your finances and the environment. New heating products are far more energy efficient than they used to be, yet many people still have old fires which could be costing them money and damaging the environment. New electric fires, gas burners and more environmentally friendly fires and fireplaces can help reduce your monthly bills. They can also help the environment by reducing the fuel you use and cutting down on the amount of greenhouse gases created which detrimentally effect the environment.
Making positive investments around the house is a great way to increase the enjoyment of being at home and places you in an enviable position when the housing market picks up again.
