Add Value to Your Home
Ad: This is a collaborative post
There are lots of big and little things that you can do to add value to your home. Whether you are thinking of selling your property or you are just future-proofing an investment. If you are thinking about improving your home, it’s wise to consider how changes may affect the value of your home and in particular if it will add value to your home in the long term.
Conservatory or Orangery
Adding a conservatory or orangery to your home is a good investment. Not only will you get good value for money in terms of adding a room for less expenditure than a full-blown extension, but you’ll also be adding a nice, bright, welcoming space that you and your family can grow into.
Conservatories are the slightly smaller, cheaper option, so if you want to add something a bit larger, you should look at on orangery which will give you ample space to entertain guests or for a lovely, light dining space.
One of the biggest mistakes that sellers make when they put their house on the market is leaving it looking like a lived in house. You can increase the value of your home and the likeliness to sell it if you go through room-by-room and declutter. Clear out unnecessary furniture and junk. That way prospective buyers will be able to see the actual room for the potential it may have.
Windows and Doors
Investing in new windows and doors is a worthwhile activity. Not only will your home look nicer, but you may also save some money on your heating bills. Having newer and more up to date windows will also go a long way to adding value to your home. It’s easy to do and replacement aluminium windows will look so much more modern than your existing ones.
Convert Your Cellar
If you are lucky enough to have an unconverted cellar in your home, you could be sitting on something that will really add value to your home. It’s been reported that converting a cellar or basement could add up to 30% to the value of your home.
Whether that’s an outdoor kitchen complete with sink and full functioning pizza oven, or simply a beautifully manicured lawn that’s perfect for the kids to run around and kick a football, your outside space will add value to your home. Everyone takes note of the garden and the gardening when they look around a property and if it’s tired, run-down or just a bit shabby, it can cast a cloud on the rest of the home.
If you have ample outside space, you could lay an extra patio or decking and add a lovely outdoor dining or lounge area. Creating a pleasant garden doesn’t need to cost a lot and can add value to your home quickly and easily.
