Complete Bungalow Renovation in Horsell

Luxurious and Functional Upgrade

This comprehensive bungalow renovation project in Horsell, Surrey, showcases our expertise in breathing new life into older properties. Our client approached us with a vision to modernise their dated 1960s bungalow, seeking to create a spacious, light-filled living space that would meet their contemporary lifestyle needs while respecting the original character of the property.

Project Overview

The scope of this renovation was extensive, encompassing both internal and external modifications:

  • Full interior reconfiguration to optimise space utilisation

  • Extension of the living areas to create an open-plan kitchen and dining space

  • Addition of a master bedroom suite with a luxury en-suite bathroom

  • Comprehensive update of all mechanical and electrical systems

  • Installation of energy-efficient windows and doors

  • Exterior facelift with new rendering and roofing

Design Approach

Our design approach focused on maximising natural light and creating a seamless flow between indoor and outdoor spaces. We removed internal walls to open up the living areas, installing large sliding glass doors that lead to a newly landscaped garden. The kitchen was relocated to become the heart of the home, featuring a central island and high-end appliances.

Sustainable Features

Sustainability was a key consideration in this renovation. We incorporated several eco-friendly elements:

  • High-performance insulation in walls, floors, and roof

  • Energy-efficient LED lighting throughout

  • Water-saving fixtures in all bathrooms

  • Solar panels for reduced energy consumption

Challenges and Solutions

One of the main challenges was working within the constraints of the existing structure while significantly improving its functionality and appearance. Our team's innovative design solutions and careful planning ensured that we could achieve the client's vision without compromising the integrity of the building.
