What are the best ways to add value to your home?

Published on: June 27th, 2018

If you’re thinking of selling your home, you’ll be wanting to get it into prime condition before opening the doors to prospective buyers. But how do you know what will actually add value? Here are a few simple steps you can take to add value to your home and bring in a great return on investment.

Storage

There is one thing that is and will always be true of storage: You can never have too much. In the eyes of a smart prospective buyer who considers practicality, storage space can be a make or break factor. One easy way to create more storage is to install shelving in bedroom wardrobes and hallway cupboards. If you’ve got the space, you’d be mad not to use it effectively. Similarly, a small outdoor shed is another simple addition that will give more storage options for items that are too large to store inside.

Exterior House Washing

First impressions are key, and if there’s one thing that ends up making the biggest difference, it just might be this. Washing your house, paths, driveways and decks can make a massive improvement to the presentation of your property. Unlike water blasting, low pressure cleaning is suitable for cleaning any surface without causing damage. It’s also something that really needs to be done properly, so hiring a professional will be worth every penny.

Painting

A very inexpensive way to modernise your home is to paint over old and dated colours. Whether in the kitchen, bathroom or bedrooms, painting is a quick and easy way to breathe a bit more life into the interior. Even the front doorway can be worth sprucing up to add to that all important first impression. It is recommended you use neutral colours as well, so don’t go too quirky. Here are a few good ideas for interior paint colours.
If you’re going to paint the exterior of your house, professional low-pressure pre-paint washing is recommended. This will ensure the surface is clean and sterilised to prevent future mould growth.

Garage

The garage is often a neglected part of the house but giving it a good spruce up can really add to the value of your home. It may surprise you to see how much of a difference simply installing carpet can make. It completely removes the cold concrete feel, making it feel much more like a part of your home. Adding some modern cabinets and benches is also a great way to improve storage and make the area feel more homely. If you don’t have one already, an automatic garage door will add that finishing touch.
