Written by Posted On Monday, 12 August 2019 06:01

Buying a house is the biggest investment that most people make during their lives.

And when you’re ready to sell the property that you’ve worked hard to secure and maintain, you want to be sure that you’ll make a profit.

So here are eight excellent tips that will help you add value to your home.

  1. 1.Painting

Painting completely refreshes your home and leaves your walls looking clean and pristine. If you’re looking to sell your home, you should opt for a neutral colour scheme. Neutral colours match most décor styles and allow for easy decorating alterations, so will appeal to a wider range of people.

  1. 2.Light fittings

Upgrading your light fittings to something more sleek and stylish helps add a distinct sense of character to each room. And if you’re willing to leave your fabulous fittings behind, they’re a wonderful added extra for your buyer(s) – light store the Lighting Superstore has an eye-catching selection of products to get you inspired.

  1. 3.Breakfast bar

Having a breakfast bar fitted is nice way to upgrade your kitchen, without replacing the whole thing. It makes a for a lovely focal point and is a practical alternative to a bulky table. And if you choose a bar top that matches your worktop, it will blend in beautifully.

  1. 4.Underfloor heating

Underfloor heating is a fantastic and practical addition to rooms with non-carpeted flooring such as your kitchen and bathroom. It’s a feature that’s lacking in the many homes, so it’s effective for helping you differentiate your property.

  1. 5.Added storage

Space efficient homes are both impressive and appealing, so you should look to make the most of the space you have. Things like loft and cellar conversions and built in wardrobes or cupboards are great options for maximising your space.

  1. 6.Shed

The condition of your garden can contribute to the value of your property too. According to home design site House Beautiful, the garden feature which adds the most value is a shed. It’s not surprising, a shed is an attractive item which adds additional storage space to your home. So if you haven’t got one already, it’s a worthwhile investment.

  1. 7.Structural problems

There’s no point going about improving the inside of your home, without first addressing any external structural issues. Consider things such as missing or broken roof tiles, loose steps and damaged fencing. These are things that everyone can see, so they need to be addressed.

  1. 8.Front door

If you want to wow prospective buyers before they’ve even set foot in your home, consider updating your front door. Choose something premium that stands out and sets the tone for your beautiful home interior. For a vast range of exterior doors with high-quality finishes, head to door manufacturer Oakwood Doors.

Follow these tips and your property will be one of the most highly sought on the market.
