Construction trends for 2017
The first quarter of 2017 has been a busy one for our Battersea construction company and there are a variety of construction trends from previous years that are rearing their head while new trends aim to minimalise our homes.
Our Battersea construction company in SW11 and Battersea have extensive experience working on London construction projects as we have been a Battersea construction company in SW11 for years.
Off-site construction in SW11 is as popular as ever
Prefabrication, also known as off-site construction, made a name for itself across Europe and is now taking the UK by storm, allowing for cost-effective construction in controlled environments to ensure minimal error and, typically, quicker production times. By producing the timber structure for your home off-site, you will decrease the amount of time it takes to build your home as, when the different elements arrive on-site, your Battersea construction company will simply have to piece your building together.
Hygge is here to stay
The Danish ethos of Hygge was all the rage last year and it’s here to stay well into 2017. If you want to add a hint of Hygge to your property, seek to use natural materials and textures in your home to allow for a minimal, natural home with plenty of personality.
Our SW11 and Battersea construction company can transform your home with Battersea construction projects such as extensions, being a leading Battersea construction company in SW11 and Battersea.
Locally sourced materials are better materials
Everyone building, extending, or renovating a London property wants to ensure they’re being as green as possible and sourcing materials locally is a great way to do that. When you select your construction company, ask about materials and where they are sourced to ensure that your materials are from suppliers in or around London rather than further afield. This isn’t just for building materials but fixtures and fittings, such as kitchens, bathrooms, doors, and windows, too. For locally sourced materials, consult your construction company in Battersea or SW11 for recommendations.
If you’re seeking the perfect Battersea construction company, our construction company in SW11 regularly works on modern and traditional Battersea construction sites in Battersea London and SW11.
Seamless storage solutions
No one likes a cluttered home and seamless storage solutions, such as fold-away tables and sliding cupboards, help to keep your home minimal. Such storage solutions are particularly useful if you have limited space to work with. For instance, do not have enough room for a utility room, shut your washing machine and dishwasher away behind cupboard doors.
Home offices are on the up
More professional workers than ever are working from home, enjoying a much shorter commute. Home offices are becoming more popular both for their work benefits but also because they can add a chunk of extra value to your home – the Telegraph found that a loft conversion could add up to £125k to the value of your home.
If you want to add an office to your home, call in a Battersea construction company in SW11 to ensure that your Battersea construction project is everything you want it to be.
This year, we challenge you to introduce at least one of 2017’s top construction trends into your home, making for a more welcoming living space. If you need a construction company in SW11, contact our Battersea construction company.
