How can you add value to your home?

Published: 19/02/2019

Let’s face it, we all want to add value to our homes, but where should you start and what is going to make a difference?



If you’re considering making some improvements to your home, take a look at our top seven ways to add value before you crack open your wallet or reach for the sledgehammer!


Garage conversion 

Garages, or should we say the “go to” dumping ground, often represent the worst use of space in most homes but are usually the easiest way to add living space. Done properly you can still retain a section of the garage and the room can have multiple uses from an office to another bedroom.
 

Create a driveway

Where space allows, creating a landscaped driveway can really add to the curb appeal of your home. Parking is important to us all, so if you have a large front garden, it’s something to think about.

 


Be Eco Friendly

As consumers, we are all becoming more conscious of our impact on the planet. That ripple effect has reached the property market and homes that can save us money, limit environmental damage and combine local environmentally sympathetic material will fetch a premium.
 

Knock down walls

Often, older homes can be restricted by smaller rooms and too many walls. Open plan living is both popular, can bring light into the property and optimises the space available.
 

Let there be light

Adding more windows can be an impressive feature, drawing the outside in and bringing darker areas of the home to life. When it comes to property value, double-glazing is your friend.

 


Kitchens and bathrooms

The old saying ‘kitchens sell homes’ still stands true today. If you’re about to embark on a renovation project but have a limited budget, focus here first.
 

Extend

Space is everything when it comes to adding real value. Extensions come in all shapes and sizes and if you can’t go back or to the side, think about going up into your loft.
