Ever wondered what you could do to add value to your home? Well this is a common question that many homeowners have and here at Mayfair Kitchens, we’ll give you some insights into how you can add that extra value to your home. Whatever your reason maybe for wanting to upgrade your home, there are some distinct changes you can make to fully maximise on the potential of your home.
Whether you’re looking to sell or stay, every home has an opportunity to further reach its maximum potential. And in today’s market where prices are constantly fluctuating, there’s really no way of indicating how the market will react. Which is why renovating your home is a prime investment – not only from a value standpoint, but also for your own personal satisfaction.
Here are some prime ways you can add value to your home…
Whether you go sideways or up, a home extension is possibly the most common thing people add to their home.
Now whether it be an extension for a new bedroom, study room or living room, an extension is by far the most value adding modification you can make to your home.
Value aside, you may even find yourself living in your home for quite some time, but always felt that you can get more out of it through an extension. Or even if you don’t quite have the space for it, a conservatory is also a common form of extension that people make.
What ever your reason, there are so many reasons to go for that extension you’ve always wanted. One thing is for sure however, that you must check with your local council whether planning permission is required. Whatever change you have in mind, its definitely worth checking with the local council whether you need their permission. It may also be a nice gesture to let your neighbours know of your extension plans, as a note of goodwill.
The cost of an extension will vary on your requirements and its certainly worth getting quotes from a variety of local builders to see what kind of cost you’ll be working with.
Another common change people make to their home is adding a bespoke kitchen.
You maybe thinking to yourself, how do you know when its time to upgrade your kitchen? Well this is an excellent question, and here at Mayfair Kitchens, its one that is asked very frequently.
Age – This is probably the most common reason why people choose to upgrade their kitchen. If you find that you’re getting bored of seeing the same appliances and granite, then it maybe time for that upgrade you’ve always wanted.
Latest Technology – Have you ever found yourself visiting family or friends and noticing that they have the latest kitchen installed. The look, the feel and the latest technologies have given you a vision that you may have not known existed! So with this in mind, you may feel that its now time to keep up with the latest kitchen designs.
Space – If you have found that your family has grown in recent times, and it’s a constant battle to get things done in the kitchen, then again, it could be time to upgrade that kitchen. A kitchen extension is quite a common upgrade to make and will most definitely add value to your home.
Loft conversions are also another excellent way of adding some space and value to your home.
If you’ve found that your loft is currently propping up your extra clutter, then a real valuable change to make is to turn that space into a functional room.
This is a great way of adding another bedroom to the home with an en-suite. And this certainly adds to the overall value of the home.
Again, just as with a conventional home extension it’s definitely worth seeking the local council to see if any planning permissions are required.
If you’ve found that Gardening is not quite your thing, but you know your garden needs an overhaul, then maybe its time to call in the professionals.
The one thing people notice immediately once they view your property, is the view of the garden. If the garden looks a mess, then the value of the property in someone’s mind can begin to diminish.
A well maintained garden could prove to really improve the overall look and feel of a home.
And if you find yourself wanting to spend more time in your garden, then this may add value to your life, not just your property. Picking up gardening cannot only be a fun and healthy hobby, but it also adds to the overall feel of your home. So if you’re looking to sell it or not, a well-groomed garden adds to the overall impression of your property.
So by now, you had a vision of what’s needed to make your home more valuable in the eyes of a potential buyer or even for yourself.
A home extension, loft conversion, kitchen upgrade, garden upgrade – all of these will add something different to your home. And maybe just what your property needs in terms of breathing a bit of vitality back into it.
