Everyone wants to increase the value of their home, however some might not know the correct way to go about doing it. Some might suggest doing one thing and others might suggest doing another. It can be a bit confusing to the un-experienced. So if you’re looking for an upgrade to your house this summer, in this article we’ve suggested a few ideas and methods on what you can renovate and what you should build to add extra value to your home. There are lists of some of the particular things you see being done to the houses that their customers are doing and they helped us gather this list together for you! Lets have a look a look at what you can do to your home this summer.
Having a nice conservatory to sit in on a nice summers evening is a perfect way to end the day. It’s also a perfect way to add more value to your home. You’ll have to spend money to get the conversion finished but you’ll be surprised at just how much value it could increase your home by. If you add a few water features in there as well, you’ll create a tranquil and peaceful room that’ll be a slightly bit different from the hustle and bustle feel than the kitchen usually has!
Loft Space is Good Space
Depending on where you live of course, you may have a basement or a loft in your house. If you have a loft, turning half of it, or even all of it, into an extra room is a great way of adding an extra bedroom or playroom for the children. It’s also a really good way of adding value to your home, as an extra bedroom will undoubtedly be more attractive to potential buyers.
Now this doesn’t mean you have to spend millions of pounds ripping up the current kitchen counters and manipulating it in such a way that it creates the perfect kitchen. However, renovating and remodeling the area will certainly add value to your home. The kitchen is usually the hub of any property so making sure it looks modern and updated is always a great way to increase the sale price. Have a look at current design and appliance trends also because it’s no good designing a space for a fridge that’s 10 inches to small for the modern appliance design.
If you are going to amend the structure of your home, make sure you are covered with the proper home warranty insurance. It will give you and potential buyers peace of mind for years.

I have done a lot of remodeling in my rentals. It not only adds value, but adds to the rent I can charge.

I’ve actually been looking for projects that might help to increase the value of my home. Adding a conservatory doesn’t seem like it’d be too bad of a project to tackle. Is there an estimate for how much something like that could potentially add to your home value? I know that a lot of it would depend on the current value, as well as the end product, but it would still be nice to get a ballpark estimate.

Pauline, when you say adding value to a home, do you mean renovating or changing some things in the home? I ask that because right now the my home sure would need some fixing as well as a new style. My idea is to call up some general contractors and see if they can re-size the bathroom as well as the kitchen area.
