It is every homeowners wish to add value to their home, but throwing money at renovation projects is all very well and good, but which ones are worth it? Here we will discuss the top 5 home improvements you can make to your property that will add the most value.
Windows are one of the first things people see when looking at your house. Fresh, well looked after windows will really stand out and be aesthetically pleasing. Make sure that you choose windows that are fitting to the style of your property whether that be modern, contemporary or something entirely different. The overall look of new windows will consequently add value.
Loft extensions are one of the most popular home improvements people make and they come with a positive impact on the value of your home. It is an easy way to add an extra bedroom, bathroom or study room to a property. Obviously more space and room can add lots of value to a property. They may be costly but in the long run they are well worth it. If you are lucky enough to have a basement, this can also be done down below, or both!
Kitchens have become real focal points of homes. They are used for socialising now as well as just cooking. New work surfaces, cupboards, appliances can go a long way to changing the look of a kitchen. The scope for designing your own kitchen, even building it yourself, is vast, with all sorts of colours and themes. Some people even buy houses just for their kitchens! The same with a bathroom. A great, functional and smart bathroom can add a lot of value to your property.
Shabby, worn carpets or flooring can really bring the image of a room down. Besides the walls, the floor is a large part of any room. Replacing old carpets with fresh, vibrant new ones that feel good under foot can completely transform the image. Obviously you aren’t limited to just carpet, there is a fantastic range of wood flooring, laminate, vinyl and tiles available, each bring something different to a room.
Treat your garden as part of the house, not just somewhere for the dog to go to the toilet! A well looked after garden can really add value to a property. Keep the fencing painted, walls tidy and plants watered, pruned and cared for. Garden furniture, lighting, and adding height and depth by using shrubs and trees can help with the overall image.
