The festive season is fast approaching, and what could be better than experiencing the magic of the holidays, the sharing of gifts and the comfort of being snuggled up on the sofa in your brand new Kirkwood home?
With a range of luxurious homes ready to move into before the big day, this could be the ideal time to make that all important move. Here are the top 5 benefits of moving home in time for Christmas…
1. More space to host the festivities
Whether you’re hosting Christmas Day or entertaining family and friends over the festive season, our range of luxury 3, 4, 5 and 6 bedroom homes can provide the additional space you need during the holidays and beyond.
Our portfolio of homes feature spacious open-plan kitchen, dining and family areas - perfect for hosting dinner, socialising with loved ones, playing board games with the whole family and so much more. The majority of our homes also benefit from a separate formal lounge, providing the ideal setting for beautiful Christmas decorations and creating a cosy area to cuddle up and relax over the winter months.
Moving to a larger home could also provide you with additional bedrooms, convenient if you have guests staying over during the holidays. Many of our homes also have the added luxury of a second en-suite, offering your guests even more privacy during their stay.
2. A blank canvas to make your own
If you’ve fallen out of love with your current interiors, or have a list of repairs and renovations you haven’t got round to, moving to a brand new home could be exactly what you need - as it provides you with a fresh blank canvas. It also means you’ll be moving into a pristine, high quality home - a luxurious upgrade before the festive season.
At Kirkwood, all our homes are painted white internally, and all the kitchen and bathroom choices selected for our homes ready to move into are stylish and neutral, allowing you to be creative with your decor.
3. Save on your bills with a more energy efficient home
With increasing energy prices across the country, homeowners are looking for ways to save money and improve their home’s energy efficiency in an effort to balance some costs. If you are considering moving house, a new build can be a much better option than an older property in this respect.
Research shows the majority of homes that are newly built will perform better in terms of energy efficiency than older properties. Due to stricter building regulations and increasingly sustainable building materials, new build homes are an extremely viable option for anyone hoping to reduce their energy bills in the long term.
If this is the route you’re keen to take, now is a great time to bite the bullet and lay down some new roots in a brand new home, as you can take full advantage of how energy efficient our homes are right away during the colder months.
4. Feel merry and bright with a sense of community
Christmas is such a sociable time of year that will make settling into your new home easier and even more enjoyable. Festive nights in your new community - from Christmas lights being switched on, to Christmas markets and fairs, school plays and events for the little ones - mean there’s plenty opportunities to get to know your neighbours, familiarise yourself with the community and feel at home in this new area.
5. Start 2024 with a bang!
After the indulgences of Christmas are over, you can bring in the new year and enjoy a fresh start in your brand new home - the perfect beginning to 2024.
You can use the festive season to settle in, add your personal touches and make your Kirkwood home a bit more ‘you’ - as well as enjoy quality time as a family in your new home, before returning to work and waving the kids off to school again. You could even host a new year party and invite your family and friends over for the first time!
