These five ideas will add value to your property, and give you a sense of satisfaction with your current space.
1. Storage Space
Small houses or older properties with minimal storage space can lead to disarray. Furniture pieces offering dual-functions such as a lift-out lid on a coffee table, or pull-out drawers hidden under a bed, will add extra storage without increasing clutter.
2. Renovate Your Kitchen
The kitchen is the heart of the home and renovating can be an easy way to add both practical and monetary value to your home. Modifying an inefficient kitchen layout can create an effective use of the space and add immediate value. A small renovation doesn’t have to be a large investment. Changing cabinet doors, new countertops or new flooring can make the kitchen feel more modern, bright, and welcoming.
3. Spruce Up Landscaping
Find yourself a landscaper or get your fingers dirty! Spend some time investing in the landscaping of the exterior of your property to create a more inviting and entertaining environment. If your space is hard to manage, consider adding paving or decking for low-maintenance gardening. If your hedges block out the light, it’s time to trim them back. Simple changes and upgrades will give your home a more inviting look and add immediate face value to your property.
4. Refresh With New Paint
When was the last time your home was painted? Adding a fresh coat of paint or changing up the color scheme can really impact the value of your home and renew your satisfaction for living there.
5. Give It A Deep Clean
If you really want to add value to your home, invest in a deep cleaning service. Getting years of grime out of the floors, cupboards, and walls can make it feel like a new house!
