Home Improvements for London houses, apartments and refurbishments.
London benefits from a diverse range of houses, old and new. There is also substantial development of new homes, flats and apartments. With property prices high, many London homeowners are adding value to their homes through new extensions and extensive property renovations.
Whatever your requirements, at Open Living, we cater for all manner of window and door replacements as well as helping you create the dream home extension or building project.
Furthermore, the different house types, styles and sizes in London mean your choice of home improvement professionals offer the right kinds of products. Choosing the correct windows and doors is essential for conservation areas or listed buildings. For new extensions, it’s crucial to choose a product that will enhance the contemporary designs or one that works sympathetically with your house architecture and the surrounding area.
Basement Conversions and property refurbishment.
London basement conversions offer luxury and added space as well as a solution to a shortage of space. With London basement conversions you benefit from improving and enlarging your home by extending underground. Basement conversions and general property renovations solve the cost of moving to a larger London property when taking into account stamp cute, moving expenses and the purchase price of the property itself.
Or, perhaps you just want to maximise on your property and create the leisure space you have always dreamed of, in which case you will have an investment that you can enjoy every day. Basement conversions in terraced or central London houses are often the only way of gaining space.
The specialist excavation, construction and design add substantial space to a property. Examples include additional living space, home cinemas, wine cellars, gyms, spa’s and pools. And for the glazing to these extra rooms, we help with floor to ceiling glazing, contemporary sliding doors, bifolding doors and patio doors.
Home improvements for London houses in conservation areas.
The majority of London Boroughs have some form of conservation area. When it comes to new windows and doors for conservation areas, you need to respect planning regulations and rules.
Choose your window and door installer carefully and improve your London home in a conservation area.
We help with products suitable for ‘like for like’ replacements in material and look. Get it right and you usually won’t need planning permission either. Sliding and casement windows and windows in hardwood subframes are frequent examples. Ensure your windows offer the period features or a similar aesthetic to the originals such as putty lines, period hardware, or matching glazing bars.
Steel and Steel replacement systems.
Both North and South London houses are capitalising on the current trend for steel or steel-replacement systems. Popular with patio doors and inside the home, steel look windows and doors add a contemporary or heritage style to your home.
We offer modern slimline systems with optional glazing bars, fashionable colours and similar sightlines to classic metal windows.
Bifolding and Sliding doors.
Whether your London home needs new patio doors or part of your extension, we’ve already established ourselves as experts in bifolding and sliding doors.
We use the best brands such as Origin, Schuco and Dutemann. These tried and tested brands come with the best sightlines, design and engineering.
For you, this means contemporary or classically styled doors that blend in with your London home. You also get all the desirable features like low thresholds, traffic doors and excellent door security.
Sash Windows for London Houses
With substantial numbers of listed, Edwardian and Victorian houses having sliding sash windows, ensure your windows both modernise your home and keep to conservation area rules or your property architecture.
With both PVCu and timber windows, we can help you improve your home without compromising on its aesthetics or local planning requirements.
Replacement front Doors.
Front doors are an architectural feature of many London houses. If part of your home improvements for London houses includes a front door, we offer composite, aluminium and timber versions.
You benefit from the latest styles and designs with enhanced security, longevity and energy efficiency.
From our seen on TV Origin front doors in aluminium to bespoke front doors or front doors as entrances to flats and apartment buildings, we can help.
Doors and windows for flats and apartments.
London has substantial building work both in the construction of new apartments and the conversion of larger houses into flats.
Modern constructions favour the use of aluminium, with PVCu, steel or timber windows used in property conversions.
These range from traditional sash windows to modern aluminium casements with a flush casement design.
