Clement is delighted to have sponsored the Small Project of the Year (up to £5m) for the fifth year running at this year’s Building Awards and congratulate the winners, John McAslan & Partners, who won for their project, Clore Music Studios.
At Clement Windows Group, we work with a huge range of architects and building professionals on a variety of commercial and residential projects. We know how important it is to choose the right architect to work on an individual project, so we’ve put together some key considerations to help you when you’re thinking about making this important decision.
Following our look at the changing priorities among homebuyers that have arisen as a result of spending more time at home, this month we thought we’d have a look at the trends that first arose during the lockdown period and look set to stay with us in the long-term.
Throughout the lockdown period, the majority of households have had to get used to spending a lot of time at home, causing many to reflect on the things they’d be looking for in their next property.
According to a Rightmove survey earlier in June 2020(1), 39% of buyers have reassessed their priorities as a result of the pandemic, with 63% wanting a larger garden or access to garden space and 43% looking for a bigger home in general. Furthermore, similar research conducted by Zoopla found that 22% of house hunters would prioritise a home office space (rising to 35% for those aged between 35-49) and 21% see lower household running costs as a ‘must-have’(2).
So, whether you’re looking to make the move to your next home or are considering taking on a home improvement project to get more from your current space, we’ve pulled together some inspiration to help get you started.
Kitchen extensions have become popular home improvement projects for opening up the layout of the home and creating multiple areas for dining, socialising and lounging – a desirable aspect for many when looking to create their dream, modern home or facilitate a growing family.
With most of us spending a lot more time within the home at the moment, it can be a good time to look around and get some inspiration for your plans. We’re taking a closer look at some of the stunning results that can be achieved with a kitchen extension to help you get started.
The garden room is a trend falling under an outdoor-design hybrid and has gathered pace in recent years as a desirable addition to the home to create a new, flexible space that can also add to the total house value.
Steel screens have continued to grow in popularity since they first became a mainstream design consideration around 2014 and it’s set to be a trend that continues throughout 2020, as more people look to maximise the spaces they have.
With so many of us now working from home for the foreseeable future, the idea of a dedicated home office space no longer seems like just a wishlist project.
So, whether you’ve been considering undertaking a project to transform space within your home or are simply looking for some inspirational content to occupy your mind during this uncertain time, we’ve put together some ideas for creating your dreamy new workspace.
