You don't need to be selling your home to want it to look nice, although it if you are looking to sell, upgrading and improving various aspects of your home can help to add value for any house buying/rescue service that you may be using. There is any number of improvements that you can make to your home, but the question that really matters isn't what improvements you can make, but instead, which ones add value. Here, we try to provide the answers to that question, with 3 unique ways to add value to a property.
1 - Wooden Bathroom Upgrade
The truth of the matter is that sometimes, “bland” isn't always what you need in order to sell your home. Instead, when you're trying to upgrade various aspects of your home, you should try something less generic. This is never truer than in the bathroom, where a few simple additions can add serious value. First, if you have a separate bathroom and toilet next to one another, knock them through, creating a single, larger space. Next add a touch of exotic eastern design by investing in a stylish wooden bath and/or shower. A slate floor and rainforest plants will transform your bathroom into something truly special.
2 - Country Conservatory
A great way to make your entire downstairs look lighter and larger is to add a conservatory to extend your home and allow light to pour in through the glass. Conservatories are particularly popular with people who live in built-up areas, and so if you live in somewhere which is close to the hustle and bustle of the city, a cosy and bright conservatory could add a significant amount of value to your property. Choose to build yours from a natural material such as wood, as PVC ones tend to lack personality, although the vast majority of people tend to go down this route.
3 - Extreme Décor Re-do
Many people believe that adding value necessitates construction work, but a heavy case should be made for grand-scale redecorating, too. Although a slight brush-up of a couple of rooms won't add any extra worth to your property, a large home make-over will add a significant amount to your property's worth. Start with basics like applying a fresh coat of paint and re-varnishing the floorboards, and then move onto style points like light fixtures, door handles, and other important décor fundamentals.
Hopefully, applying some of these changes will help your property to shine at its full potential and receive the fairest price when you sell.
