If you’re looking for some home improvement projects that will not only give your home a bit of a makeover, but will also increase the value of your home, there are plenty of things that you can do, the most obvious being an extension or conversion. If that sounds a little too big of a project though, here are some more ideas.
Add another bathroom
If you only have one bathroom in your home, it may be a . Not only will this add a lot more value to your home – if you live with others, it will make things a lot easier when it comes to busy mornings and exhausting evenings. You won’t have to fight with each other over who has first access to the bathroom in the morning, giving you a lot more privacy than you usually have.
An additional bathroom will also give you more space for storage because you can split everything in two now.
If you already have a bathroom with a bath in it, then think about adding a shower in the new one, that way you get a choice of the two depending on your mood for the day.
Remodeling the kitchen
If you’re sick of cooking your food in a grubby kitchen that has old work surfaces and a stained floor, then it may be time to remodel your kitchen.
Pull out your broken cupboards and appliances, take out the floor, and start again from scratch. It can be pretty pricey when remodeling a kitchen (or any room for that matter), so if you haven’t got enough money saved up yet, you should look into some so you have enough freedom to create the look you deserve.
An important thing to remember when redesigning your kitchen, is to make sure it fits in with the rest of your home. It’s all well and good to build a fancy, deluxe kitchen, but if the rest of your home hasn’t been touched, it may make your other rooms look even worse than they actually are. So the key is to find the right balance.
Creating a new room
Creating a new room in your home gives you a lot of possibilities. For the time being, it could just be used as storage if you have a lot of things that you want to get out of sight. But if you’re looking for another way to use it in an appealing way, you could by adding a luxury bed and some nice fluffy carpet, along with a fancy wardrobe and some pretty lighting.
If you don’t need another bedroom, why not turn it into an office space? You don’t necessarily need to do any work in there; you can just use it as a quiet room to relax in when the house gets busy and you need a time out. Invest in a comfortable sofa, some warm coloured lamps, and a few good-reads, and you’ve got your own secret getaway.
