10 Home Improvements That Increase Home Value

10 Home Improvements That Increase Home Value
  • Opening Intro -

    Whether you're planning on selling your home, or just want to make it a nicer place to live, there are a number of home improvements that you can do that will really pay off.


No matter what your budget is, there’s always something you can do to add value and appeal to your property…

If your budget is under £100 ($150)

If you’re short on cash but want to update your home then one of the best ways to do that is to give it a lick of paint. Over time your paintwork can become discolored, and the gloss on your skirting boards and door frames can start to crack and chip. Repainting your home will give it a face-lift and won’t cost the earth.

If you only need to improve one or two rooms you could try having your carpets and curtains steam cleaned, investing in a new rug, and adding new cushions, candles, and ornaments etc.

If your budget is up to £500 ($800)

If you’ve got a little bit more cash to play with then there’s a lot more you can do. For example, invest in new storage solutions to keep your home tidy and free from clutter; a messy house can distract potential buyers when they’re viewing your house.

If the interior of your home is ok, you could use your budget to hire a landscape gardener. If your garden has been a bit neglected over the years you can inject some new life into it with things like decking, paving, new plants, shrubbery etc.

If your budget is £2000+ ($3100)

If you’ve got several thousand pounds to spend on improving your property then you can turn that home into a castle! An extension or room conversion can be expensive, but it will add tonnes of value to your home, as well as much-needed space. If you have a loft or basement you could look at converting them into usable rooms, which is essential for growing families.

Insulating your home is another great way to improve it for yourself, and for future buyers. Loft and cavity wall insulation will help to make your home much more energy efficient, which will reduce your energy bills, and add appeal for buyers.
