We’ve all had to spend more time within the confines of our homes, so it comes as no surprise that many homeowners are now planning home improvement projects.

Whether you are planning to extend or convert your property, or just revitalise the space you live in, it is important to have a clear plan – and vision for your project – before you start building work. This includes planning ahead, choosing the right builder, and establishing a good working relationship with them from the start.

When starting out on a new home renovation project, we all want it to be a positive and successful experience, which is why we’ve produced guidance aimed at helping homeowners to better understand the steps involved. Our series of ultimate guides include step-by-step guidance on how to tackle common home renovation projects such as:
