Whether you’ve completed an amazing extension, conversion, or a kitchen or bathroom project, now is your chance to share it with us.
If you’ve completed a home transformation project, now is your chance to share it with the world by entering the Real Homes Transformation Awards 2017. Not only will you have the chance to win an amazing prize, including £1,000 cash for the overall winner, but you could also appear in the pages of Real Homes – providing inspiration and advice for the next generation of home improvers.
Entries close on 28 July 2017, and the judging panel will then select a shortlist of properties, which will all be featured in the magazine. The overall winners will be revealed in the January 2018 edition of Real Homes.
This includes both single-storey and two-storey rear, front, side and basement extensions.
Including loft, garage and basement conversions, as well as barn, school and church conversions.
Whether you’ve extended, remodelled or simply refitted, any kitchen can be entered into this category.
Both new bathrooms and en suites, and remodelled spaces are eligible for this award.
Best other transformation
Have you made over your garden? Or given your living room a brand new look? You can enter any room makeover in this category – from bedrooms and dining rooms to outside spaces.

The owners of every project that is shortlisted will receive a free, 12-month subscription to Real Homes magazine, worth more than £46.
The owner of the project crowned overall winner, which will be awarded the title Real Homes Transformation of the Year 2016, will receive a £1,000 cash prize, also provided by Mrs Stone Store.

Last year’s winner
Architect Fiona Kirkwood and her husband Benjamin used their experience and vision to turn an empty workshop in a London Conservation Area into a compact home spread across three levels.
‘I love this conversion. It shows a clever use of the interesting room shapes and split levels that were required by the site location. It’s a small house, but a big success.’
