5 Reasons Why a Home Renovation is Beneficial for Your Mental Health
In the last year, we’ve all experienced the importance of having a harmonious home, where we feel good and complete. With multiply lockdowns and employees working remotely, most of us have thought about a throughout home renovation and even a refurbishment. Refreshing your home is actually mentally beneficial and here is why:
1. The feeling of achieving something
With COVID-19, many people have experienced highs and lows in their lives in the last year. Starting a new project can keep your minds and lives busy, keeping your thoughts away from the hopelessness we all encountered these days. In addition, studies show that people experience a feeling of fulfilment every time they finish a renovation plan, no matter if it’s a small bathroom redo or a bigger home renovation project.

2. Mental boost
These days, we can't emphasize enough how important it is to stay motivated and starting a new project can give you a mental boost. The idea of planning to improve or change something is often enough to lift your spirit and give you a sense of enjoyment.

3. Reduces Stress
Stress is something we all suffer from, it’s inevitable. Renovating your home can start a chain reaction that will reduce or eliminate stressful situations in your life. For example, if you start a smaller bathroom renovation, which includes a water pipe fixture, it can lead to using less water which ends in lower water bills. If you are lack of space, you can remodel your London home by adding a rear or a side return extension, creating an open plan kitchen, living and dining room. This can lead to more space to make family dinner and still spend time and watching over your kids in the living room. It’s a win-win situation.

4. Financial Reasons
Financial benefits can also be a motivating factor for home renovation. A recent study shows that many of the surveyed homeowners who had carried out a home renovation project during the pandemic are hoping to sell their home sometime within the next 5 years. Most of them were planning to sell their homes before COVID-19 and are hoping to sell them for a higher price.

5. Health Issues
A property renovation, especially the ones in London with a home extension, can improve the ventilation significantly. If your home hasn't been refreshed in a while, damp, mould and condensation can spoil the air quality significantly. Fresh air should constantly be flowing through your home, if it doesn't you may consider reinstallation, a window change and to clean and repaint the walls.
