Top DIY Tips To Add Value To Your Home


Looking to add value to your home. You don’t need to break the bank because there are some DIY jobs that can improve the look of your property and increase the valuation of your home – particularly if you are planning to sell.

Improve The Kerb Appeal

The first impression is important when you are selling your home. So give your house a certain kerb appeal to stand out from the crowd. Most initial house viewing a done online, so you need to catch the eye in seconds.

A lick of paint to enhance the exterior, a new door or a shiny new entrance gate will go a long way to get potential buyers to your doorstep.

A New Kitchen

It isn’t the easiest of home improvement DIY projects, but consider installing and upgrading your kitchen. The kitchen is the most valuable room in the house and one of the biggest selling points for potential buyers. 

It is no longer just a place to cook, it is also a hub for socialising with a variety of guests during dinner parties or visits from family and friends.

A full kitchen remodelling can add serious sales power and increase the value of your home. If you are on a budget, smaller changes will still add value and attract buyers.

Upgrade Your Bathroom

Just like the kitchen, a stylish upgrade on your bathroom can help sell a home super quick. Buyers will be attractive to a house they don’t have to treat as a renovation project if you have already done the work.

From replacing elements like taps, shower heads and accessories, you can improve the look. Even with a full bathroom upgrade with new bath, sink, toilet and shower, you can get your money back on a renovation in terms of added value to your property. 

Add an Extra Room

Converting a basement or garage into an additional living space or bedroom can increase the value of a property by up to 30 per cent according to experts. 

Converting your basement or garage is one of the least complex structural improvements because you do not need the same planning permission that an extension to the rear or side of your property requires.

Redesign Your Garden

Don’t think that because your garden isn’t part of your physical home that it doesn’t help sell a property. Making the most of the outdoor space can really make it attractive to potential buyers.

Think of adding flower beds, a water feature, a new seating area or extending the lawn. All are potential ways to improve your garden and make your space more attractive, functional, and attractive to those willing to pay a top dollar.

Adding a deck can also increase the value of your home. Outdoor living is becoming increasingly popular. If you can make your deck or backyard more attractive, your home will be more attractive to potential buyers if you decide to sell.
