Renovating homes is one of the UK's most popular pastimes, and it's not difficult to see why - we are fortunate to have a wealth of history in our buildings. But renovating isn't just for those who own a period home; it is for anyone who wants to improve their surroundings and add value to their property. All homes, whether they are period or newly built properties, will need some sort of maintenance at some time; home improvement has become an essential part of owning a home. Renovation work doesn't have to be major before it becomes worthwhile; smaller projects, like refitting the kitchen or refurbishing a fireplace, go a long way to transforming a home, and are just as rewarding. Whether you are looking to re-insulate and damp-proof your home or simply strip back your floors to their original finish, Home Renovations is an invaluable guide.kind, the RIBA holds a library of over 600, 000 design drawings for buildings and their interiors, reaching back to the 1 5th ... plan to truly renovate your period home to its original authentic decor, you should also respect the hierarchy of colour.
