Adding More Value To Your Home To Maximize Your Investment

Thursday, June 11, 2020

When it comes to our homes, we all want to ensure that our investment pays off for the long term and this can often mean that we want to add as much value to it as possible. However, are you doing enough? What can you do to ensure that your home maximises potential when it comes to what it is worth? With that in mind, here are some of the things to consider.

Revamping the exterior of your home

Your home's first impression counts, and this is especially important if you plan on selling your property for the maximum amount. So it may be time to look at the exterior and clean things up. You could consider pressure washing the drive and pathways, and using a pressure washing service could make this easier. Cleaning up the windows, clearing the gutters, taking care of any pointing and even tidying up the garden. All of these things can help add value without huge investment.

Replacing the kitchen

One of the first things to consider would be replacing the entire kitchen. This is one of the rooms in your home that can add the biggest value. You can take the time to really design the kitchen and make the most use of the space, such as adding storage options for different items in your home, integrating appliances and giving it a seamless and clean finish. You could choose a high gloss modern kitchen or something more traditional, just take into account the style you have in your home and the character of your property so that this kitchen will work seamlessly. A kitchen can be classed as the hub of the home, so make sure yours stands out.

Replacing the bathroom

A bathroom is another room in your home that can add significant value when replaced entirely. A new bathroom suite could create the exact look you are going for and it also gives you the opportunity to make more use of the space you have. Perhaps giving you the opportunity to add a separate shower cubicle or even a bigger bath. The bathroom can be an expensive job, and it can also be quite labour intensive, so you may want to ensure that you get the professionals in to complete this job to a high standard.

Adding a downstairs toilet

Adding value is all about making the most of the space you have, and many of our homes have space under the stairs that could be utilised more effectively and this is when adding a downstairs toilet could be a great addition to your home. You can find some great small vanity units and toilets that are designed for this sort of space and the additional half bathroom as they are called could add some value to your home.

Converting a garage or loft area

Finally, don’t forget things like loft areas or garages. These could easily be converted into rooms that your home can use and can add serious value without a he upheaval or dent in your budget. A garage could become a playroom or extra living space whereas a loft or attic area could become another bedroom.

Let’s hope this has given you some ideas on how you can add some value to your home.
