If you are looking to sell your home you want to get the most you can out of your property. Here are our top 3 tips to increase the value of your home.

kitchen 
No.1 Upgrade your Kitchen

Updating your kitchen should be at the top of your list, as statistically we spend around 6 hours a week in the kitchen cooking. That’s a lot of our time, so it works in your favour to redo your kitchen. Kitchen renovations don’t need to be state of the art, most buyers look for modern quality cabinets and fixtures in a neutral colour scheme. The tiles should be neutral and modern and the layout should optimise your space and make it look sleek. According to Which fitted kitchen costs from around £1,000 upwards depending on how much work has to be done and the quality of the cabinets you choose.

bathroom

No. 2 Update your Bathroom

No one likes the sight of old dated tiles, a carpeted bathroom or a bright blue bidet (trust me I’ve got one). So if your bathroom is severely dated you should seriously consider installing a new one. If you just need to touch up your bathroom here are the three must do’s. 

1.       Install proper lighting, bathrooms are supposed to be bright and full of light so make sure your bulbs are up to date with LED’s and lots of light fixtures.

2.       If you don’t want to get a new bathtub then you can reglaze yours to give it a new lease of life and save you money.

3.       Install sleek blinds, privacy is a must but dusty old blinds and damp curtains are not the way to do it, simple blinds are the easy way to modernise your bathroom.

garden

No.3 Landscape your garden

Get in touch with a landscaper and talk to them about low maintenance garden options. We all want a beautiful garden without spending hours tending to it. There are lots of ways to keep your garden low maintenance, patio half of it, plant hardy ferns and pebble areas so that the garden looks well-presented all year with minimal effort. Hanging baskets outside your home are another touch to make your home look more welcoming, water every day in summer months and re- plant when plants need refreshing.

 

Stay tuned as next we will be sharing with you the top renovation mistakes that people often think will increase the value of their home but in fact don’t.
