3 sure fire ways to add value to your home

While you might not be planning on selling up any time soon, you still might be keen to add value to your pad. You might be happy in your little patch of bricks and mortar, but you want to rejuvenate it, give it a makeover, and increase the resale value of your home in the process. By thinking with both your heart and your head, you can achieve the perfect look for your humble abode while adding value to your home. Adding value does mean stumping up some of your own cash in an effort to speculate to accumulate. Take a look at these three sure fire ways to add value to your home.

Extend

By adding square footage to your home, you are naturally increasing its value. If you have a growing brood, you may have been tempted to move onto pastures new as you find your living areas becoming more cluttered and you crave more space. However, by seeking out ways to add space to your current home, you can remain in the place that you love. 

You might choose to go upwards and create a loft extension. Here, you can create a new master suite complete with an en suite bathroom. Or perhaps you crave the living space for your growing family. Going outwards and creating an open plan kitchen diner that is more conducive for twenty first century living will be hugely appealing when you come to sell up in the future. If you don’t fancy something so permanent, take a look into the relocatable homes that give you the freedom to choose where to place your extension. These granny flat style homes are units that can be built on site and at speed – perfect for giving your teenagers some private space of their own.

Curb appeal

The first impression of your home will be the most important factor when selling your pad. To increase its value, you need to ensure that your driveway, your garden area, and the frontage of your humble abode is fit for purpose. If your render is peeling, stained, and looking tired, whip out the white exterior paint and give your pad a new lease of life. Get your windows cleaned, clear the gutters, and go on a mission to get rid of the triffid weeds from your garden to create a more welcoming ambiance. You want to turn heads for all the right reasons when you show off your home. It might be time to whip on the mud boots and get dirty to increase the value of your home.

Decor

If you have woodchip wallpaper and some old school swirly whirly pattern carpets, it’s time to give your interior a facelift. Even if you don’t have a creative bone in your body, you can go minimal or follow a trend in an interiors magazine to give your decor more of a modern feel. Think about getting some smooth plastered walls with a simple white emulsion base. This is perfect to create a blank canvas for some artwork or family photos. Think about some oak floorboards or laminate to go throughout the home and don’t be afraid of adding elements of color and texture to add interest and value.

Follow this simple guide and you can add value to your home.
