When people are looking for a way to increase the value of their home, many of them will focus on adding desirable features to the interior. This will usually include having things installed, such as fireplaces, new stone countertops in the kitchen, and even having a walk-in shower placed in an ensuite bathroom.
However, as is the way with home trends, there are some things that you can have installed or fitted in your home that are guaranteed to up its value without costing the earth. So, read on to learn more about these options.
1. Stone Tiles
Tiles are a simple addition to any garden or interior space that can really help to add value and also add a real aesthetic appeal to the space. Dijon tumbled tiles, granite tiles, and slate tiles are all popular choices and are more affordable than most people think. With natural stone tiles, they can withstand lots of traffic, which is great if you run a busy household, and they come in plenty of colors, sizes, and thicknesses.
2. Outdoor Living Space
No garden is truly valuable without an outdoor living space, such as a patio, a deck, or even a pergola. These kinds of add-ons to the garden space extend the area where you can relax with friends, as well as offer a space to dine and entertain. However, you will need to ensure that the area is structurally sound, and so many people opt to have any outdoor living area installed by a professional team. It can even be worth investing in some high-quality furniture, some lighting, and an outdoor kitchen.
Have you ever seen a stunning house that has a ragged fence around it? Probably not!
For your home to have its value increased, it is worth installing a high-quality fence around your outdoor space. An aesthetically pleasing and secure fence will help to enhance the privacy of the space while also adding a curb appeal to the property.
Try to make sure that the material that was used to make the fence matches the aesthetic of the garden and the property. For a rustic garden, wood is a great material, and for a more modern look, wrought iron and vinyl would be a visually appealing addition.
4. Stone Countertops
A kitchen that has recently had its old countertops taken out and replaced with solid stone ones is going to be, well, stunning and will up your home value. Now, you may be thinking that the only option you can install to increase your home’s value is marble. However, you can also have quartz or even granite countertops fitted, which will boost the home value. Some things to consider when doing this are your budget and the aesthetic of your home.
5. Walk-In Closet or Wardrobe
In the bedroom, it can be worth looking into a walk-in closet or wardrobe. This may require the size of the room to be made a bit smaller, but this feature has once again become desirable and can really increase the value of your home.
