Granite Transformations can confirm that the ‘improve not move’ boom continues, with record numbers of householders opting to upgrade where they live, rather than up sticks and move house. According to the latest Lloyds Bank research, over 14 million people have undertaken major work on their property or plan to do so within the next year, to improve or add value to their homes. New kitchens (40%) and bathrooms (30%) are high on the list of priorities for home owners looking to improve, according to the research.
Typical of this ‘improve not move’ makeover trend is our work for customer Susan Williams, in the Canterbury district of Kent. Mindful of record lower interest rates, she took the view that the family’s savings were best invested in upgrading three bathrooms and a downstairs cloakroom, with a view to increasing the value of her 4-bedroom detached property.
Granite Transformations took care of the total makeovers, installing our own luxurious, non-porous agglomerate finishes and Trend authentic Italian glass mosaic, while Ripples supplied top quality bathroom fittings. The resulting transformations are outstanding, the formerly staid décor being elevated into upscale layouts that would not look out of place in a boutique hotel, as can be seen if you click here.
