Home Improvements To Increase Home Value

If you’re looking to move or sell your home, it’s important that you do everything you can to get the best value for your property. Nobody wants to undersell their home, especially if you are planning on moving somewhere bigger that requires a bigger deposit. In order to get the best price for your house, read on for some of the best home improvements that you can make.

1. Optimise Your Outdoor Area

Garden space is highly coveted, especially in dense cities. In order to add value to your home, consider adding a patio if you don’t already have one – it’s a simple addition but one that most buyers are looking for. Even just cutting back any overgrown hedges and replacing worn fences can make your house more appealing.

If you have a lot of garden space, you could utilise it by adding a garden room which, again, is certain to boost the value of your home.

2. Add Glass Balustrades

If you want to add value with minimum effort, outdoor glass balustrades could be the perfect option for you. Without the hassle or expense of building whole new rooms, simple glass balconies or verandas can add a sense of class and elegance to your home.

Glass balustrades are also a great way to add value inside the house since they highlight views and make spaces seem much more open and less claustrophobic. The sense of more space is a surefire way to improve your home and make it much more desirable to potential buyers.

3. Convert Your Basement Or Attic

One of the quickest and easiest ways to add a large amount of value to your home is by adapting your basement or attic space into an extra room. Adding storage space or even creating a whole new living area can greatly increase the value of your property.

If your house has an attic where at least 60% of the space is 2.4 metres high, you can turn it into an additional living space, walk-in wardrobe or office.

4. Add a Conservatory

A great option if you don’t have a basement is to make use of any extra outdoor space you have and build a conservatory. It is likely that you will need planning permission for this, but it can add a lot of value to your home and make it stand out from other properties. 

Be honest, who doesn’t like to watch the stars from the comfort of the lounge while sipping on a cuppa?

5. Focus on Your Interior Decor

If you aren’t sold on making such large changes to your home, the simplest thing you can do to add value is freshening up your walls and flooring. It could be as straightforward as repainting the walls a neutral tone or swapping carpet for wooden flooring. While this might seem quite plain, people are much more likely to be able to imagine themselves living in your home if it’s a blank canvas.
