EPC'S- What are they? Why are they important? How to improve them? And how are they changing?


  Why is an EPC important to you?

Out with the old, in with the new…

We all know what it feels like wanting to create your perfect home, to live in the palace you have always dreamt about. However, it’s not always as simple and easy as we like to believe. It can be very difficult renovating your property into your dream home. Firstly, you need an idea. You need to know exactly what you want and how you want it. Then it’s sorting out planning permission or building regulations, then finding the right people to help you with your project, such as builders and architects. It’s a very long and demanding process, but it’s all worth it when you’re sat in your modern styled lounge or your vintage styled kitchen.

Sometimes the hard part about turning your property into something new is getting an idea or the inspiration to do it. You may know you want a change and something new, however you may not know what that “something” is quite yet. And there is nothing better than finding a list of property ideas and examples for you to be able adjust your ideas and style too. Well, at Red Squirrel Property Shop we invest time into Project Management and we believe it is very important to give you the helping hand you need in creating your perfect property.

I believe that it’s not only the brick work that creates the perfect renovation, but it’s also the stamp you put on it yourself. The style you decide to endeavour on is very important, as it shows through your personality, your likes, and how you want to make you home feel. This could be cosy, modern, retro or even vintage. Therefore, exploring the different designs in which you could present your home is very significant.
