Perhaps you’re in the mood to tidy up your place a little or want to put your property on the market, unless you have tons of cash, you will be looking for ways to make your home look better and hoping not to part with too much cash to achieve it. Luckily there are some great ways to quickly add value to your home without damaging the bank.
Having a newly installed UPVC window can directly add value without having to incur costs. Most buyers today will consider double glazing as a requirement, regardless of style or colour. Windows require little maintenance, look great and offer energy efficiency with far greater capacity than single pane windows. You will make your home a far more attractive choice for potential buyers with modern, safe, double-glazed windows and doors.
Change the Kitchen
The kitchen is a very important family home centre and if your kitchen looks a little tired, you might want to modernize before putting it on the market. If there is nothing wrong with the integrity of the unit, you can cheaply replace the handles and knobs. Maybe you can move the unit, add new ones and think of a replacement worktop but you certainly don’t need to delete everything and remodel unless the kitchen is a disaster area. Maybe you just need a new floor or new modern lighting fixtures to breathe new life into the room.
Don’t forget the garden & exterior
Most new buyers don’t want a forest to hack through so it will definitely pay you not to neglect the exterior of the property. Privacy is very much sought after, so you can consider planting some trees or adding fences. Make sure the grass is cut, think about creating a separate area for barbecue or social gatherings and decking always adds great value to the home. The basics you need are tidying, sweeping, weeding and maybe adding some colourful flower plants. If you’ve not considered it before, why not consider Brick Cladding to boost your home’s exterior?

Simple repair work
Tidying up any general cosmetic or structural problems can also be overcome without too much cost. Repainting doors and walls only requires a little effort and costs a few cans of paint. Repair any cracked cladding, buy a new garage door, or repaint the bricks. These are all fairly easy and inexpensive ways to enhance the appearance of your property in a short amount of time.
OK, so while this is not a fast or cheap option, it is one thing that will significantly add value to your home, more value than actual costs. Conservatories often don’t require planning permission and can prove to be a valuable investment but make sure you do your homework and choose a good design. A badly installed conservatory can have a bad impact. It must face south, with energy-efficient, glass-vented and well-ventilated floors to prevent moisture and condensation problems from occurring.
