What are the trends in home renovation? 

While converting garages and outbuildings into living space remains common and the tendency for owners of older properties to retain original features is still prominent there is no doubt an increased demand for open-plan renovation in Cambridgeshire. With interior design, we’re seeing trends move away from warm neutral colours, with fashions leaning towards cooler and darker tones. Cambridge and its surrounding suburbs is home to some stunning examples of Victorian architecture, and many homeowners living in Victorian properties like to keep original features such as quarry tiles & original fireplaces. 

How much will it cost to design and build an extension?

Costs vastly differ depending on the type of renovation project, with a basic build cost for single story extension coming in at £1,200-£2,000 per square metre. We advise speaking to your Refresh Renovation Consultant to get bespoke budget guidance based on your requirements. By choosing Refresh, you will always retain control over all decisions and most importantly your budget. This will remain the case throughout the project and we will pre-plan everything with you before work commences.
*Please note that these are rough estimates only. For a high-level indication of what your architectural renovation will cost, the Refresh Process is designed to provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision.

How long does a home renovation take to complete?

For an accurate time estimation for your individual project, we always recommend consulting with one of our Renovation Consultants. The time frame of every project differs, depending on a variety of factors. A renovation of a large or medium-sized home can sometimes take between 6-12months whereas minor work like a simple loft renovation can be completed in a matter of days.

Will Refresh take care of the planning permissions and consent applications?

Refresh will handle any planning requirements or consent you require for your project by closely liaising with local councils. Straight forward cosmetic design work does not normally require any extra permission. An application process for additional consent is highly likely to be required if your project entails changing any structural components of the property. This also applies to anyone living in a council listed building they plan to renovate.
