If you’re a homeowner looking to boost the value of your property, extensions or renovations are probably the most guaranteed value adds. But, what if you’re on a budget?
You can still add value to your home even on a budget. Here are 7 ways to get you started:
1. REDESIGN YOUR KITCHEN
Even if you don’t have the funds for a total overhaul of your kitchen, you could add value to your home by making small changes. For instance, getting unique new tiles fitted or installing new worktop surfaces can refresh the look of your kitchen in an instant.
2. ADDITIONAL STORAGE SPACE
Having lots of storage space is a huge selling point in a home. Make use of any dead space and build shelves or cupboards. There may be valuable unused nooks and crannies so get creative and create more space for people to stash their clutter.
3. A CONSERVATORY EXTENSION
Even if adding a conservatory to your home doesn’t seem to be a budget idea, the return on investment is significant. It introduces a lot of natural light into your home, which is always a great selling feature. You’ll want a conservatory that blends into your outdoor space to create a spacious feel, for example with the use of sliding doors.
4. ADD A WALL TO CREATE AN ADDITIONAL ROOM
If you don’t have space or funds to extend to a new bedroom, you could create one by adding a wall in an existing room. This can be much more cost-effective than getting a full-blown extension.
5. REPLACE YOUR REAR WALL WITH BIFOLD DOORS
Bifold doors create the feeling of space in an instant and create a more seamless blend between the indoors and the outdoors. And we all know that space and natural light sell!
6. DO UP ANY OUTDOOR SPACES
Do you have an outdoor space that isn’t currently being used much? Imagine how you could make it more appealing. You could set up a balcony garden, or make a seating area. It doesn’t cost much, and potential buyers will then be able to envision how space will be used.
7. ADD A SHED
Like conservatories, a well-designed shed could add more value to your home’s property than the cost to build it. And sheds aren’t just great for storing your clutter. An insulated shed can be used as an extra bedroom, living room, or even a home office.
