One of the most positive things you can do with a house that you intend to sell on after buying relatively cheaply in the capital is to open up the space to make it more attractive. You probably have plenty of maintenance work and repairs on your list of priorities because these are the things that will see your investment increase in market value quickly if the house is not currently up to scratch.
However, certain aesthetic changes help you to see dramatic rises in value and there is nothing quite like opening up the downstairs areas in terms of satisfying modern attitudes to interior design. People love open spaces so if you are looking to sell on your investment for a healthy price, you might want to consider an open plan renovation.
London renovators are used to working with domestic spaces in order to create brighter and more spacious living areas out of dark, cramped or generally unimaginative interiors. Their skills come in incredibly handy when you are looking to turn the house you have acquired into something people will want to buy.
