A Bungalow Has More Possibilities

When property hunting around local estate agents and on the internet to find a family home, many people won’t even consider a bungalow as they think the style of house is designed for retirees and older people.

While this is true, there are some really great older bungalow properties on offer that have the traditional bungalowadded appeal of having really big gardens around them – perfect for a growing family.

A Large Plot

Many of these older properties have already been snapped up and modernized by people who’ve spotted a great opportunity, but there are still similar properties bungalows to be found. Modern family homes are often great on the inside, with plenty of space for everyone, but they’re constructed cheek by jowl with the neighbours’ properties and the gardens are the size of a dog run!

Room to Extend

An older bungalow property offers many extension possibilities – you can go up into the roof space to create attic bedrooms or build onto the side. You can transform a small kitchen by extending out with a conservatory garden room, so that the whole space becomes a living kitchen, full of light and views of the garden.

Larger Rooms

The room sizes in older bungalow properties are also often bigger than in homes constructed today, so although it’s all on one level, you can get a great feeling of space within the property.

Once you’ve made any significant structural alterations, all you need to do to complete the project is pick the right colour scheme to decorate and find the perfect combinations of furniture for your new home. Choosing modern materials like glass dining tables and leather sofas will bring your renovated bungalow bang up to date and complete its transformation into a stylish, spacious and modern family home.
