With so many home improvements adding value to your property, it’s really easy to make changes that are going to benefit you in the long run. From simple additions to property amendments, you can create a space that looks beautiful, works well for you and also brings value to your home. Whether you’re looking to switch things up in the bathroom or transform the garden, the following home improvements are guaranteed to bring more value to your property.
Add a Fireplace
Keeping cosy and warm on cold winter nights is essential, but there’s something special about sitting by an open fire and listening to the crackle of the logs as they slowly burn. Central heating is something every home needs but having a fireplace with a working fire makes your home that little bit more special. Fireplaces are ideal for creating a focal point within the living room, as well as creating a warm and cosy atmosphere. There are some amazing fireplaces available that you can customise to suit your interior style, which helps to add a lovely aesthetic to the room.
After a few years, your walls can start to look dull and lifeless due to paint fading and general wear and tear. By redecorating, you’ll notice a huge change in the way the room looks and feels. If you’re looking to change your décor completely and opt for a whole new colour scheme, it may be worth doing a little research and finding out which colour schemes are on trend and popular within the interior design industry. This will help to add value to your property whilst also adding a new lease of life to the décor. You can find a huge range of equipment at really affordable prices online at retailers like Milford Building Supplies, Buildworld and B&Q which will help you keep costs to a minimum whilst redecorating each room. For those wanting to keep the décor the same, its still really worth repainting your walls the same colour to give them a boost and brighten them up, as constant light exposure can cause the walls to become dull which has a strong impact on the whole rooms feel.
Depending on how many bedrooms your house is, an extra bathroom will really help to add value to your property. Whether it’s a main bathroom or an ensuite, you’ll find that having extra bathrooms is a really appealing feature and many will find this to be a huge selling point. Bathrooms are often one of the last rooms that people think to add to their homes, as bedrooms are always highly desired, but it’s surprising how many people are more interested in having that extra bathroom space within their home.
Tidy the Garden
There is nothing more off-putting when looking to buy a home than a messy, overgrown garden. When your garden is untidy and overgrown, it’s difficult to gauge how large the space really is, as well as knowing what it really looks like. Gardens hold so much potential, they just need a little TLC to help to get them there. Get out into the garden and give it some proper attention. Ensure your lawn is neatly trimmed with edging, bushes or hedges are trimmed back and any dead flowers or plants are removed and replaced with brightly coloured alternatives.
