5 Home Improvement Projects That Add Value To Your Home

If you are looking to add some value to your home, whether you are buying a property to resell or doing up a family home, there are certain home improvements you should focus on.  These are home improvement projects that can really add value to your home, whether you are selling it now or in the long term. So let's look at what they are.

1. Bathroom Remodel


A bathroom remodel will add some luxury to a home and also adds value. It's always a selling point if you have a new bathroom or a new kitchen in a home. Consider adding a bath and a shower to gain the widest appeal. A new power shower with decent water pressure is always a plus point. Think about adding underfloor heating if you have the money as well. Whether you are planning a bathroom remodel in Houston or Harrogate it's well worth doing to add value to your home. 

2. Adding a conservatory

Adding a conservatory to your home is worth doing especially if you need the space, and of course, an extra room is always a selling point. There is nothing nicer than sitting in a conservatory and watching the wildlife in your garden with a cup of tea, I do that all the time at my mum's home.  Many simple conservatories do not need planning permission either but always check before you go ahead. 

3. Attic conversion 

An attic conversion can be a costly undertaking however research by Right Move suggests that an attic or loft conversion can add at least 20% to the value of your home. That's one big reason to get one, in my opinion, don't you think? You do need some serious money though, and attic conversions start at around £10,000 or around $13,500, going upwards to £30,000 or roughly $40,000 or more. 

4. Fitting a new kitchen

A modern kitchen is always a great selling point in a home. New buyers are looking for modern units, with up-to-date appliances and a fresh lick of paint. A kitchen that looks fresh and inviting. You can have a bespoke kitchen made for you or make some adjustments to a kitchen yourself if you are on a budget. Replacing the kitchen doors, having new flooring fitted or having new built-in appliances can all make a big difference to a kitchen if you can't afford a total makeover.

5. Improving energy efficiency

Improving energy efficiency in a home can definitely add value to it. As well as keeping your energy bills down you are also helping to save the planet by conserving energy. This is a big plus point if you are selling your home or are looking to sell it in the future.  Ways in which you can improve energy efficiency in your home include having a new energy efficient boiler fitted, getting solar panels fitted, or having loft insulation installed to the correct thickness.  Check if you can get a grant to help with improving energy efficiency. 

As you can see there are several ways in which you can add value to your home. Let me know if you have done any of these.
