Add Value to Your Home with Custom Furniture

Even if you are not thinking of selling your house in the immediate future, it pays to know how to add value to your home. There are a number of ways to increase the appeal of your property, from made-to-measure furniture, loft conversions, simple maintenance or an extension to open up the heart of your home.

Dining Room and Library

Made-to-measure furniture isn’t only crafted to fit a space; it’s designed to fit your lifestyle. The transformational effect not only for you but potential buyers is second to none. Our designers will visit you at your home and discuss your ideas with you. They’ll bring with them a wealth of knowledge and creativity that will inspire your imagination, and will instinctively be able to create solutions that will turn unused spaces into much-used places. Below are three ideas to help you increase your home’s value with made-to-measure furniture.

Bespoke Wardrobes

Imagine furniture that’s made to fit the exact shape of your room; finding storage opportunities even in difficult corners and taking angled ceilings into account. By utilising awkward areas, you can free up valuable space elsewhere in the room, making it seem larger and more spacious. If you’re planning to sell, investing in made-to-measure wardrobes in your bedroom or transforming a tiny box room into a luxurious dressing room can be hugely attractive to potential buyers.

“The toughest areas are those with angles, such as under stairs and lofts. However, we can take full advantage of these spaces by cleverly using alcoves and sloping roofs, optimising the space and enhancing features of a pitched ceiling by creating furniture that fits into the shape of the room, following the lines, not fighting against them.”

Nigel Bonnet, Furniture Designer at Neville Johnson.


Make Open Plan Living a Breeze

Open plan living spaces are more popular than ever. And although you’re losing a wall by knocking through into other rooms, it doesn’t mean you have to lose storage opportunities. Lounge furniture can be carefully positioned to partition areas of a room to create separate living zones. Even in the largest spaces, you can cleverly incorporate quiet reading corners, desk space and zones to gather and watch films as a family. Beautifully crafted made-to-measure furniture can be designed to your exact specifications to conceal items you don’t want on show, and open shelving can help you to display the items you treasure.

Add Some ‘Wow’ Factor with a Loft Conversion

Your loft could be transformed into whatever you want it to be; a cinema room, a home study/ snug or a luxurious master bedroom complete with en-suite and a dressing room. Things to consider include skylights, structural reinforcements, a staircase, lighting, heating and fire safety. If your loft has awkward architectural features such as sloping ceilings and wooden beams bespoke made-to-measure furniture can be built in-situ to meet your exact requirements ensuring no space is wasted. Creating floor-to-ceiling storage maximises your room’s potential, giving it instant style and purpose.

Of course, the number of bedrooms in a property has a significant impact on its value, so creating a stunning new bedroom in an unused loft could significantly boost the sale price.

“I cannot recommend this company enough”

I cannot recommend this company enough. From first contact we received very high quality service. We were informed as to everything that was going on, which was backed up by the necessary paperwork, plans and phone calls. The fitter was competent and the work he did we can’t fault.

“I would really recommend Neville Johnson to anyone”

A real easy process, I would really recommend Neville Johnson to anyone. From the first phone call through to a very skilled fitter (who had to go above and beyond with our old house not having one straight line in it) it was all so easy. We couldn’t be happier that we chose to use Neville Johnson.

The room is transformed and has been hugely admired by family and friends. I was pleasantly surprised by the attentive and courteous client care – everything went according to plan and nothing seemed too much trouble. They were in regular contact before and after the installation. I would highly recommend Neville Johnson to anyone wanting to transform a room.
