We established in the last article that energy-efficiency and design are the primary motives behind a large proportion of renovations carried out on homes in the capital. Having looked in some detail at the question of energy-efficiency, it is now time to examine that of design a little more closely.
It is the case that some London properties have aging interiors that are not as charming as their historical exteriors. This is why a lot of people have their interiors renovated rather than simply maintaining them. It is possible to have a very modern renovation or to renovate the interiors so that they are cleaner and more attractive but still in keeping with the existing period style.
Modern renovations are extremely popular because it is very fashionable to go for a juxtaposition between old and new in terms of exterior and interior design. Modern renovations often incorporate contemporary layouts too, with open plan living a popular choice of rearrangement.
Period renovations seek to uphold the features that give the property its character. However, they too can involve modern layouts and they certainly modernise the room in terms of its quality and its appearance.
