Whether you’re looking to put your home up for sale in the near future or not, it’s good to know ways you can add value to it. Making it a more attractive investment to buyers in the future, whilst making it a wonderful place to live in the present, there are certain rooms you should consider updating and focusing your attention on.
Whilst there are little things you can do within each room, if you’re looking for changes that make a big impact, then it might feel daunting. However, it doesn’t have to feel this way. With the right budget in place, planning and organisation, you’ll be one step closer to a house that looks and feels brand new.
So which of the rooms in your house, when updated will add the most value?
5 Rooms You Should Consider Updating to Add Value
Ok, so this might not come as a surprise. But it’s surprising how many people still don’t realise the value they can add by renovating their kitchen. Nowadays, a kitchen is arguably the first thing that buyers pay attention to when they enter a home. This is generally because it may seem like either the most expensive room to do up or the one that will take the most effort.
Now, this doesn’t mean that you have to spend thousands and thousands on an amazing kitchen (unless you have the budget to do so). But by updating it – whether it be through changing/painting the cabinetry, upgrading the floor, etc. it will make all the difference.
Second on the list is the bathroom. Another significant room in the house that when updated can add thousands of pounds to the value, it’s one that shouldn’t be ignored. Within the bathroom, you could consider retiling, changing the faucets, updating the lighting, etc. – the possibilities really are endless within this room.
And no matter what your style or how much you want to spend on it, you’ll be able to find a design that works for you. There’s also plenty of inspiration around for this, including on sites such as Pinterest.
The Front Room
Whether this is the living room or dining room, it needs to make a wonderful impact on buyers when they come to view your home. You want them to be impressed with your home from the get-go – not put off because the front room hasn’t been shown the TLC it deserves.
Alternatively, if you have an entrance hall, this is an important space to pay attention to.
The Master Bedroom
For many people, the master bedroom needs to be comfortable and stylish. So if yours is looking like it needs some love, then it’s time to consider renovating it. From replacing the bed to painting the walls, you can completely transform its appearance.
You could also consider supply only fitted wardrobes and other storage which is ideal for those looking for a do-it-yourself solution which will save you money but not compromise on style. With these options, you won’t have to have a professional install them – you can do this yourself. Giving you a sense of satisfaction whilst ensuring you stay on budget, this paired with other changes within the master bedroom will undeniably add value to your home.
Ok, so this isn’t a room per se. But that doesn’t mean that it isn’t an area of your home that you should consider updating and upgrading. A garden can make a huge impact on your resale price – so it’s time to get green-fingered and enhance the look of it. The perfect time to do it, just by mowing the lawn, adding some flowers and investing in some outdoor furniture your garden will look extraordinary. One other cost-effective way to update your garden space is by adding composite decking to your outside area, not only does decking add an extra dimension to your garden it also helps to link together your outside and inside space, plus they can be particularly cost effective and look really good as well.
So, there you go! Those are 5 rooms/spaces that you should consider updating if you’re looking to add value to your home. The updates you make, of course, are up to you and will be shaped on your preferences and your budget. But whatever you upgrade within your home, it will wow house viewers when it comes time to put it up for sale.
