Improving your Home

 

With the housing market in its current state, it may be sensible to think 'don't move, improve'. With this in mind, I have listed several tips and general advice to help you increase your home's value, which not only makes financial sense but is also less stressful than moving. An extension could add between 10% and 40% to the value of your home, depending on its size and how well it is finished. As with any extension the proportions are the key, you may have plenty of bedrooms but a tiny kitchen; therefore add an extension to create a spacious kitchen diner. You may have a huge garden but a small house, so why not add a large extension to create the home of your dreams.

Planning a new kitchen is an absolute must for anyone seriously looking to boost their home's value, it could add up to 10% on the value of your home; your kitchen is an important room and the first thing a potential buyer will look for and it's also the room where you are likely to spend much of your time, particularly if it is a kitchen diner and living space all in one. The secret is to choose one that matches the style of your home – i.e. a contemporary kitchen for a modern home, or something more traditional for a period property.
If you would like a new kitchen but do not have the budget - replace your kitchen doors and old appliances with new good quality appliances which will go a long way to giving your kitchen that just renovated feel, but at a fraction of the cost. New kitchen wall tiles and replacement worktops will also instantly smarten up an outdated kitchen.

Adding an en suite bathroom to the main bedroom could also add up to 5% to the value of your home, assuming you do not have to sacrifice a valuable bedroom.

If you have the budget, why not splash out and re plan a whole new bathroom, including good bathroom lighting and mirrors, this will not only make it feel like a home spa - it will make it seem larger too, not to mention adding up to 15% to the value of your home.

Upgrading the exterior of your property will also add value, how does the garden look, turning a neglected plot into a beautiful garden can have a real impact on your home and how you feel about it.
While you’re improving your garden, why not make space for a cabana, outside kitchen, lounge etc.

Wise improvements to your home will not only add value but will make it a more pleasurable place to be, not to mention easier to sell when the time is right.
