Renovations to Make a Profit
If you’re looking to sell your home, investing in adaptations can massively improve its desirability to potential buyers, as nobody likes to purchase a home that needs extra work.
As well as making a quick and successful sale, you’ll also want to ensure that you gain the best profit from your property, and this is most commonly done with beautiful renovations that give buyers that ‘WOW’ factor when they come to view your home.
Admittedly it can be easy to think of traditional extensions like a conservatory or garage, but these can often be view as outdated for the tastes of your potential buyers. Home trends evolve, so finding more innovative ways to improve your home can ensure that when it comes to selling the property it stands out amongst the rest.
Of course, there are many actions that need to be followed when making home improvements, but before you start this process, research the following options that have increased in popularity for modern homes.
Building an open plan living space in the home can add extra room and give you the feeling of complete relaxation. You may have to put up with the increase in dust whilst you knock down a few walls, but this form of renovation can be budget friendly, and be processed through planning permission much quicker than traditional extensions.
Creating large amounts of space will give you the ability to enhance the room with elaborate artwork and over-sized furniture without them dominating the house. Just ensure that whichever rooms you decide to connect, that you keep with a similar colour palette so that the space flows naturally.
Eco-friendly home features are becoming increasingly popular with those that are more conscious of their carbon footprint, so enhancing your home to fulfill this modern desire can make it very alluring to those who prefer a cleaner way of living.
Solar panels can be an expensive addition but they will add value to the property, and dramatically cut the energy bills of any future dwellers. This alone can make the property sell faster, as utility bills are something everyone looks to save money on.
Alternatively organic bathroom suites in recycled fabrics or bamboo can create stunning ‘spathrooms’ that leave your buyers with the instant impression of Mother Nature’s touch. Relaxing and eco-friendly, these features may be expensive to begin with, but will make your property sit above the others on the market.
Modern conversions developed in the loft or basement, are becoming popular forms of home improvement thanks to the budget friendly costs involved. Minimal planning permission is required and you’re able to add space to your home without compromising the properties current aesthetics.
Take into consideration the best use of this space and consult with an architect about how this can be developed. You may have ideas about creating a generic room that can suit any need, but if the space is best developed into something unique or useful, then this can persuade the buyer as the work has already been done.
Enhancing the natural light that comes into the home can dramatically affect the way the property is perceived. Light helps to exaggerate the space and can make a room feel more open.
We all naturally thrive off the benefits of sunlight, so it’s an important element to make the house feel like home.
A lack of light a can make the room feel small and dark, and not a comfortable room we’d like to spend hours in relaxing. So give as many rooms as possible a light face lift.
Floor to ceiling windows in the living room and bedroom can help us wake up to beautiful views, or simply adding Velux windows in dark stairways and halls can brighten up the smallest spaces in the home, making every space feel more open and welcoming.
