My Ideal Home Improvement's

Currently we don't own our home, which is a shame as there is so much that I would love to do to make the most out of the space we have. We live in a semi-detached 3 bedroom house with a drive and a very spacious garden. We're actually really lucky with the amount of space we have but there is so much potential. The below is what I would love to change about our home if we could and if money wasn't an option.

The Attic
The attic is very large with half of it already being carpeted and decorated plus it has a sky light and electric sockets. This is great as we use it for storage an I often will take myself up there and use the sewing machine. The other half of the attic is how an unused attic looks with wooden beams and dark! The first thing I would do is make use of the all of the space but separate it into two sections, one for storage and one to serve as a fourth bedroom. I would replace the drop down ladder with a staircase as there is more than enough room on the landing. The storage section would also be great to use as a craft room.

The Bathroom 
The only downside to our home is the bathroom. I'm not sure what was done to the house to make the bathroom as small as is it but whatever it was I'm not a fan. We currently have a half bath, which is great for the kids but for someone like me who loves to enjoy a soak with a bath bomb I'm outta luck. I would build an extension towards the back so that we would have a larger space and could fit in a larger bath, maybe one of those nice Jacuzzi baths. As the extension would affect the downstairs I would keep the downstairs toilet and maybe use the larger area as a utility room and somewhere for the dog to have more space.

The Kitchen
So as I have mentioned the plan I have in mind for the bathroom would affect downstairs and as well as creating that space down stairs I would need a door leading into a conservatory. I think a nice conservatory with either bi-folding doors or french doors opening out on to the garden. I would like a lot of light as I would plan to use it mainly as a play and learn room for the kids Jared also has a pretty awesome telescope so lantern roofs would go really nicely. I would go for a nice laminate flooring but cover with a large rug so it didn't get destroyed by the children and dog.
The Driveway
We already have a drive-way the but it's stone's and there isn't a dropped curb. I would get it paved have a drop curbed installed then transform the front garden maybe add a nice tree and a couple of flower pots.
