The Layout of your Property
Initially think about how you would like to use your space and highlight your needs and frustrations with the current layout.
Consult professionals (both a qualified Structural engineer and an interior designer), particularly if you have lived in your home for a number of years as it’s always good to see the area through a fresh pair of eyes. Most importantly, don’t be afraid of change. Clients always look nervous and hesitant when I suggest knocking through walls but this is a surprisingly straightforward undertaking and the benefits always far out way the dust and cost. So many people make the mistake Open-plan living is the most desirable approach to improving lifestyle of renovating and keeping the existing layout, hence achieving very little.
