Thinking about increasing the value of your home? It’s easier than you think!
Many Brits are looking to sell up and move to a new home this year. You need to make sure you are maximising the value of your existing property before you put it on the market. You might be able to earn more money from your home so you can move to a nicer area. There are plenty of ways to make your home look more attractive to potential buyers. You just need to take a step back and use a critical eye. By increasing the value of your home, you can have more money in the bank for future renovations, holidays and emergencies. It’s difficult to move home – especially if you raised your children there. You need to make sure you are getting the most bang for your buck. Here are a few ways you can add value to your home:
Convert your Cellar or Loft
A loft or cellar conversion will add a lot of value to your home. It gives you extra space and often doesn’t require planning permission. Just make sure there is enough head height in the space you are renovating – your loft space may be quite narrow. You could renovate the loft into a master bedroom and en-suite with some smart space planning. Use sliding doors, stylish tiling and filament bulbs to make your loft an ultramodern bedroom.
Spruce up your Kitchen
Kitchens get dirty very quickly between food splatters and stained countertops. You add a couple thousand in value to your home by giving your kitchen a new lease of life. Clean and paint the cupboard doors to remove any signs of wear and tear and replace the doorknobs. Give it all a deep clean and see if you need to replace the countertops and hob as well. Hopefully, they just need a good scrub, and they will be good to go.
Add an Extension
An extension will probably add the most value to your home because you are increasing the square footage. You could add a home office or an extra bedroom to the property. Use roofing sheets to protect the extension from any harsh weather conditions. Style up your extension with a natural colour palette and lushest textures.
Upgrade your Bathroom
Everyone loves a new bathroom. You can start fresh and bid farewell to any stubborn mould spots. Make your bathroom as calming and spacious as possible. People like to see bright tiles and large showers, outdated wallpaper and coloured appliances. Just make sure you haven’t already exceeded the street value of your home before you start renovation
