Top 5—Extensions & refurbishments galore

This week, our top 5 posts were centred around extensions and refurbishments in the United Kingdom. A trend in the last couple of months shows that more and more homeowners are curious and interested to see what they can do with their current homes, rather than splashing out on a new one. Perhaps it's the fact houses are getting smaller and more expensive each year, so we're having to look to what we do have, rather than what we don't. A fascinating trend that we hope to see growing continuously over the next couple of years.

So, let's take a look at the top 5 post of the week on the homify platform for the first week of March!

This beautiful terraced home in the heart of London was in much need of a facelift, both inside and out. This family of five now lives in a house that is open plan, spacious and with a well constructed layout—truly a home to be proud of. To view the project in full, click here.

4. Before & after: Refurbished stone cottage

We absolutely love seeing old, heritage listed homes given a second chance at life. In this instance, an old stone cottage in Scotland was awarded a minimalist and contemporary interior that will simply blow you away! Click here to take a tour. 

3. homify 360º: Extended terraced home, Hackney

With a budget of £70,000, this family home was transformed from dreary and outdated, to light filled and eclectic via a stunning wooden extension to the rear of the property. To learn how this project was completed, click here

2. Before & after: The gables, London

You wouldn't be able to tell by this image, but before it was a modern family home, it was actually a mechanics garage! Now, the property is a modern openplan 3 bedroom house and two separate apartments, with a design that honours the site’s industrial past. To see the dramatic transformation once more, click here.

1. homify 360º: modern family home with extension

Our number one article for the week took our readers by storm. It seems that homeowners these days are preferring to stay put, rather pack up and move on. For this family, a two storey extension was added to the side of the home, as well as a new space in the rear. This meant life could continue at their current address as usual, yet within a new and improved space. To see the number one article again, click here.
