There are some great ways we can add value to our homes, and some of them don’t even need to break the bank. Whether you are hoping to get more money for your property to sell right now, or for the future, or you hoping to add more value on a personal level, then there are different ways to do it.
I thought I would share with you some of the bigger budget busting ways, and some of the subtle cheaper options that could help you add value to your home. Whatever your purpose may be.
Working on the bathroom
The bathroom is one room in your home that can add a big amount of value when it is changed and updated, it can be a real messy job so many potential home buyers are glad that it is done. However, you don’t have to update the whole thing as sometimes more subtle changes to things like the walls or the floor could give a fresh new look without the huge price tag. This is where websites like Bathroom Marquee can help you with the choice of flooring or wall panels. Even changing over accelerates like tap fittings could spruce up the bathroom on a budget.
Making more of your kitchen
Your kitchen is another room in your home that can add a huge amount of value, but like the bathroom, it can also be a very messy job so buyers tend to be happy that it is done. A full new kitchen can help you make more of the space as you can redesign the layout. However, more budget friendly updates can still make a big impact. It might be changing the colour, adding a feature wall, replacing or painting the kitchen cupboard doors.
Changing the decoration in your home
On the subject of colour, if you are planning to sell your home and want to add as much value as possible then you could consider the complete decoration and make it a little more neutral in terms of colour. This helps potential buyers see past your colour and personality choices and allows them to imagine their own furniture and items in the space. Lighter more neutral tones can also make your home look and appear bigger.
Minimising what you have in your home
Decluttering your home may sound obvious, but many people don’t consider it as a way for you to add value to your home. But if a space appears neat and tidy then again it can give the impression of more space. It’s a psychological thing to do, but it can be very effective.
Adding more floor space
Finally, one of the big ways you can add value to your home is by adding to the square footage. This means you can add extra bedrooms by extending over garage area or even adding more space in the living areas and eventually considering a double extension. It is definitely a great way to add a lot of money o the value, and while it can be an expensive change to make the investment is totally worth it.
