There are plenty of approaches you can take to add value to your property and increase space in your home. In this short article, we take a look at various ways this can be achieved such as with new flooring, a kitchen remodelling and with a loft conversion!
Firstly, you should consider painting the walls or adding fresh wallpaper. In most instances, light colours such as pale blue, light green, lavender and off-white tones are the most suitable for a room.
In terms of wallpaper, some of the most common materials are vinyl, non-woven, solid sheet, prepasted and glass cloth.
As for the flooring, the best choices will vary from room to room. In bedrooms, carpet is the most obvious choice although hardwood is another popular choice.
Hardwood, softwood and laminate flooring are common choices for kitchens and living rooms while tiling is also a great option for a kitchen and bathrooms alike. You’ll want to pick a flooring that best suits each room, your preferences and budget. It’s important to give consideration for what colours of carpet are most sensible to go with.
A home with high quality and updated flooring and walls will be worth more. Further, with the right choices, they can give the perception of increased space although to actually create a more spacious home you’ll need to rearrange fittings or add extensions.
In terms of a bathroom in general, it might interest you to have new fittings added such as with a replacement shower like a digital, electric, power or mixer shower. If you prefer baths, then a pedestal, corner or recessed bath are each worth considering. You may also want to replace the sink or toilet to complete bathroom renovations.
When it comes to remodelling a kitchen, some of the appliances you might wish to replace are the microwave, fridge, oven and boiler. If you choose to, you should look into smart appliances as this can help bring your kitchen into the 2020s!
Another great way to add space and value to your home is with a loft conversion. Other types of conversions worth considering are a single storey extension and a conservatory.
Fitted wardrobes are a fantastic way of making your bedroom more spacious as they are built into the walls unlike free standing wardrobes. According to HomeHow, the price of such wardrobes can vary from several hundred to many thousands of pounds.
