8 easy ways to add value to your property

Budget-friendly changes can make a big difference to the look of your property and simple tweaks can pay off big time. Whether you’ve just bought a property or are looking to sell, here are some easy ways to add value to your property.

Paint, paint, paint

Fresh paint is one of the easiest ways to make your home look stylish. Choosing neutral colours such as beige, light grey or cream will make any room feel more spacious and cleaner.

Give your bathroom a facelift

If a complete bathroom makeover isn’t in your budget, there are still many things you can do without spending too much money. Small changes such as replacing old cabinets, adding large mirrors, upgrading taps and towel rails will update the room without stretching your budget.

Let the light in

Adding light to your home will create the illusion of space. It’s also an easy way to increase the overall value of your property. You can start by installing brighter and eco-friendly lights throughout your property. Leaving your windows uncovered to bring in more sunlight will also make your property feel much brighter.

Fit double glazing

Double-glazed windows are great for adding value to your property. They are also more energy efficient as they keep more heat in. If you decide to replace your windows, make sure the new ones match the style of your property.

Upgrade your kitchen

The kitchen is the very heart of your home. A simple makeover focusing on upgrading fixtures and fittings such as drawer handles and installing energy-efficient appliances can make a real difference. Make sure you add kitchen furniture that is durable and upgrade appliances when they need replacing.

Keep up with maintenance

Make a list of all the things that need to be fixed or replaced in your property. Attend to any squeaking doors and leaking taps.  Staying on top of maintenance will reduce problems later if you decide to sell your property.

Upgrade your flooring

If the carpets in your property are looking a bit old then you should consider cleaning or replacing them. If you have wooden floors throughout your property, reviving them with a long-lasting varnish finish will also increase the value of your property.

Make the most of your garden

When it comes to the price of a property, a well-maintained garden can significantly increase it. Make sure that the lawn is well tended and that there are enough plants to give your garden a natural feel. You should also consider adding some lighting to provide more visibility at night.
