There are many reasons to renovate your home. Whether you have bought an older property for the express purpose of revamping it, or you have simply become bored with your current interior design, you can be sure that a well-organised home face-lift will increase the value of your house.
If you are looking specifically to grow the value of your home, you will want to focus your attention on a few basic details. While every improvement is bound to make a positive difference, some are worth more than others when it comes to the valuator's expert opinion.
To begin with, you will want to consider your bathrooms. What kind of condition are these in? How is the plumbing? Are the fittings classic and timeless, or do the taps and tile hail from the seventies? Good ablutions are vital, especially if you are looking for a healthier read out while perusing equity release calculators.
It is also always a good idea to take full advantage of any original features that your home might have to offer, especially if you live in an older building. If there is fitted carpet covering up wide oak boards, for example, you will want to get to work restoring this flooring as soon as you can.
By the same token, you will want to designate any wasted or unused space in your home as well. If you have a 'study' filled with unpacked boxes and junk, for example, set about turning this room into something that you can use, and which will be an asset.
