Top Home and Garden Improvement Tips for 2019

If you’re ready to start off the New Year with home improvements in mind, you have come to the right place. The New Year is a fantastic time to consider adding value to your home by sprucing up your garden, adding awnings, glass room extensions, driveway gates and more.

Crocodilla have put together our top tips to guide you through the home improvement process for 2019.

1. Assess your home:

Take a subjective look inside and outside your home and determine what ideas you would like to implement. Do you find your patio and garden is underutilized and you would like to spend more time outdoors in 2019? Perhaps you would like to increase security and privacy by adding a driveway gate and fence? For example, if your garage needs better insulation to cut down on energy costs and your current garage door is no longer balanced or has broken springs, replacing the garage door would be the perfect place to start in 2019!

2. Set a budget:

After the festive period, money can be tight and the wish and necessity lists can be long. Don’t get discouraged! Get in contact with our team and let us know your budget and we can work with you to find the best solution for you. You will be surprised at how cost effective our products are and how far your money can go.

3. Will you need planning permission?:

Many extensions do and this can be both a lengthy and costly process. Ask this question early on in the process to avoid any obstacles and fines.

4. Want extra space?:

The Weinor Glasoase Glass Room system offers a fluid transition between your home and garden. This uninsulated conservatory is a beautiful, cost-effective alternative to a traditional conservatory. A glass room will allow you to entertain outside year-round, giving you fantastic, unobstructed views of your garden and enjoyment of the natural light, whilst protecting you from wind and rain. 

This German manufactured glass room system is of the highest quality and is completely bespoke with many options available to customise including the sides, front and roof. You can also choose external conservatory awnings, internal lights, heating and electrical blind systems, meaning the possibilities are almost limitless. 

5. Get creative:

If budget and planning permission get in the way of creating your perfect outside space, think about adding a patio awning to your garden in 2019. An awning is a beautiful way to create a sheltered, designated area outside for alfresco dining, enjoying the view, or just snuggling up in a cosy chair in the cooler months. Get creative and customise your awning with side awnings, heating and lighting options to enjoy your space well into the evenings.
