If money was no object, BUT you have to improve and change your existing home – what would you do?
The kitchen cabinets are outdated now and the worktops have seen a lot of use. If I was to pick my dream kitchen I think it would have to be grey with an industrial feel like this one from Magnet Kitchens

New Front Door
These can be surprisingly expensive, especially if you want a coloured one! Since our exterior is black and white, I think I’d have to go for a black wood look door like this one from Direct Doors

Ours is the original concrete and I always think how lovely the paved driveways look. But if moneys no object I think a cobbled driveway would look amazing such as this one from Marshalls

Convert the conservatory into a extension
At the moment it is extra space but it gets far too cold to use in the winter and too hot in the summer – I always try to use it as a room but it’s just not practical since it’s mostly windows, has a plastic roof rather than a glass and no heating. So by fitting a solid roof it would convert the space and save for having roof blinds if we fitted a insulated roof like iconRoofs offer. I would also fit bi folding doors to the dining room to create one large useable space but still with the added bonus of separating.

Extend upstairs and bring light in
Upstairs has room for an extension to go out into the back although we would lose our attic space we could gain another bedroom and a bathroom. It’s also very dark upstairs when the doors are shut so would definitely consider fitting some skylights from the company Velux. I’ve always loved the look of loft extensions but since we live in a chalet bungalow we’re already in the roof!!
Back to reality, unless I win the lottery in the near future I will be refitting my kitchen on a budget, look out for a blog post coming soon! My front door may get a lick of paint, my driveway will probably only see a power washer, the conservatory is becoming a garden room and nothing more and the upstairs will probably stay the same!
