When it comes to updating or remodelling a home, it pays to know what adds value and at Direct Heating, we have a wealth of experience in Leeds home renovations. Certain jobs are a sure-fire way of appealing to potential buyers so if you want to upgrade to your dream home, you’ll need to maximise where you live now. Whether the plan is to work up the property ladder or create your forever home, here are five of the best ways to increase the value of your Leeds property…
Update The Central Heating
When it comes to increasing property value, let’s first look at the central heating because replacing the boiler with an up-to-date model will see improved energy efficiency of the building. If the boiler has sufficient capacity, you could even add in some new radiators. Underfloor heating is also great and will make a fantastic investment.
Install A New Bathroom
Without a shadow of a doubt, a new bathroom will certainly increase your property value. It’s even possible to keep costs nice and low by keeping your existing layout. Floor-mounted suites are a great option due to them not being as expensive as wall-hung. Also, choose an exposed shower over concealed as these cost more to install.
Get Fitted Bedroom Wardrobes
Fitted wardrobes create more space and can be tailored to your room and lifestyle and although you can’t take them when you move, there’s actually a silver lining instead. By investing in a set of fitted wardrobes, you’re actually giving buyers more desirable storage and this, of course, will come at a premium when you come to sell your home.
Extend The Kitchen
An appealing, clean and sociable kitchen is important to most buyers so enhance the room and take the plunge with a side-return extension. This type of build can be typically found on a terraced or semi-detached. It also extends the kitchen and improves the layout for actually a surprisingly modest investment.
Opt For Open-Plan
For some an extension is unrealistic but there are other ways you can add value. For instance, removing the wall between your kitchen and lounge will achieve desirable open-plan living. You’ll also see more of the family, according to Houzz, considering we spend 12% of our time in the kitchen. Just make sure you hire the right professional team to see your open-plan living dream through.
