If you don’t fancy the long hours of DIY, then seek a professional to do the hard work for you. This does require a bit of research, don’t just opt for the first tradesman who visits you. According to The Independent newspaper, you should go with your instinct, by recommendation and by checking out their rating on a trade website. Ask to see their credentials and ensure you are comfortable with their understanding of the job you want them to do.

So, what is on your renovation project list for 2017?


One of the biggest projects you can tackle in your home is building an extension. Not only will you need to hire an architect and possibly submit a planning application, it is highly likely that you will need a specialist tradesperson to help you build it too.

An extension can take the form of expanding your kitchen to create a luxury kitchen/diner that you have always wanted and maybe add as an orangery to let in more light! You may want to create a single or double floor extension for an extra room or two if bedroom space is limited. How about converting your loft space into a master bedroom suite, complete with walk-in dressing room and en- suite?

Whatever you decide to tackle, flooring will certainly need to be considered in your budget.


Flooring can make or break a room and even if you are just redecorating, laying new flooring will bring your room to life. It is worth your time visiting an online flooring company such as who will have an array of designs available to browse and be inspired by.

The internet is a great place to start when it comes to your flooring choice. Whether you would like a new carpet to freshen things up, are going contemporary with wooden flooring or even retro with cork flooring, the decision is yours. This year is all about the flooring to bring your room to life!
