When you own your own home, you want to make it as comfortable and as a practical as you possibly can. You need to make it into a space that works for you and your family and you want to enjoy living there. Fortunately, many of these projects can also have the added benefit of adding value to your home, so are an investment as well as a lifestyle choice. Today we want to share with you 4 home improvement projects that add value to your home, which one would you choose?
Improve the energy efficiency
This is a great place to start as most of us would benefit from making our homes more energy efficient.
This should see energy bills reduce, it should make your home more comfortable and you can be reassured that you are making efforts to reduce your carbon footprint. You might choose to replace old windows, install better loft insulation, add solar panels or perhaps you need to update your appliances.
Add a garage
For many homeowners, the addition of a garage can be a great selling point – whether for their cars or for additional storage. Despite the cost to build a garage, the value added should cover the cost and then some.
Adding a garage can be a very practical way to add extra space to your home and garages can often be on people’s must-have lists when they are looking for a new home.
Install a new kitchen
The kitchen is often at the heart of the home, and many of us are looking for open plan kitchen diners these days. We want to be able to bring the whole family together during mealtimes and create social spaces.
This project might involve knocking through an existing wall to create a large airy space, or you might choose to extend your home. You might already have a spacious kitchen, but it is in need of updating. You have so many options here, as you might need to make a new space and install a complete new kitchen, or perhaps you can replace existing cupboard doors, worktops and flooring to give your kitchen a make over.
Landscape the garden
Along with helping you to enjoy your outside space more, an attractive garden can be a real selling point.
Take some time to ensure that it looks well maintained, paint any fences and deck that are in need of attention and then add areas of interest. You could put together a seating area, you might like to add a cut flower patch or perhaps a few pots or beds with splashes of colour will brighten the space up.
