If you’re looking for ways to change your home and not only make it a more pleasant place to live, but also add value to it, you might want to take a look at some of the suggestions from Real Homes.
The news provider noted that one of the best ways to add value is to make better use of the space you have by knocking through rooms if they aren’t well designed. You always need to get structural advice before you remove any walls, but you may find that just opening up the space can make it feel much nicer and allow you to make better use of it.
Open-plan living is a popular choice in home design at present, so it’s likely to appeal to buyers should you decide to sell too.
Another popular option is to create an open-plan kitchen/diner and living space. The news provider notes that this fits in with the idea that the kitchen is the heart of the home and therefore appeals to many families.
If you’re going to carry out either of these projects, make sure you look at how you design every element of your interior to make it feel like a seamless transition. This might mean buying new UK internal door sets so that everything matches once you’ve finished changing the layout.
Installing new windows is another home improvement worth making, according to the website. This can add more to the value of the home than it costs to fit new double or even triple glazing.
The Daily Post recently revealed that replacing windows was one of the first repairs that homeowners typically have to make after buying a property, so fitting new windows isn’t a bad idea to make it more appealing to prospective buyers.
