We all need to do a bit of home improvement every now and again and it’s usually catered to what we think is the most important or what we would like to see changed. But when it comes to selling your house and getting your home’s value, it’s a whole different ball game because it becomes more about pleasing the majority rather than the minority (that’s you, by the way). Below are tips to improve your home’s value.
- Get rid of the clutter

This one is essential but luckily, it can be completely free. No one likes to see clutter and when it comes to having your home’s value determined. Having too much clutter can actually give the impression that there is less space in the house. What you want to be doing is creating space, not limiting it. If you have a lot of stuff that you just can’t let go of (this one is especially relevant to the borderline hoarders out there) then you should definitely look at implementing some easy storage hacks into your home.
Get the experts in
There are home improvement experts who dedicate their lives to specializing in the services they offer, such as interior designers, painting, roofing, installing windows and the like. Giving your walls a lick of paint is fairly easy if you’re not looking for an expert finish, but if you’re thinking of getting the outside painted, or even the roof, then you should definitely find a painting company to do the honors instead.
Make sure the bathroom stands out
All About Interiors
Bathrooms are becoming the staple part in house buying these days and it’s because we all want to have a little bit of luxury. The master bedroom is always at the top of the hit list and the kitchen usually comes in second, but ensuring that you have a fantastically great bathroom might be what it takes to clinch the deal for you. Generally modern bathrooms are a success. Super sleek bathrooms are pleasing on the eye and if you really want to wow the people coming to value your home, install a few spa like features such as a whirlpool bath tub or double shower.
4 Going green will add big money to the value of your home
This is great for two reasons – it will add a hefty amount of value to your home which is great if you decide to sell up, but you will also reap the benefits of doing this whilst you’re still living there. Installing solar power is a pretty costly change to make to your home, but what you get in the long run far outweighs the wince worthy price tag. You’ll be making huge savings on your electricity bills afterwards so it’s definitely worth a look at.
5. If you don’t have central heating then this is practically a modern day must
The weather isn’t as predictable as it used to be thanks to global warming and so people like to know that they can ensure they have a warm home to live in regardless of what season it is. It’s seen as an essential to most buyers these days and you could end up losing out on great offers just because you haven’t even installed central heating.
