Moving fees, hassle and stress. Does it really make sense to move when you could improve your current property?

Maximising the potential of your home and living environment can be achieved in many ways, and they needn't be expensive. New kitchens, bathrooms and extentions give immediate impact, decoration can breathe life back into tired spaces and making the most of outdoor living can bring a sense of space and unity to a property. But one aspect that can be commonly overlooked is the use of glass.

Improving the glazing in your property can range from the simple to the extreme. If you have a big budget then why not add a glass extention or connect to the outdoors with large expanses of folding glass. But if you want to keep life simple and inexpensive then dramatic improvements needn't cost big money. Windows on period properties can be easily fixed or revitalised with new handles or leading. On newer properties misted double glazed units don't need a whole new window just a replacement sealed unit. Security can be improved with laminated glass, and with so many new products hitting the market glass can actually cut your energy bills instead or increasing them.
