Apply for planning
Just recognising the potential in your home that is awaiting to be unlocked can add up to 15% to the value. Seek advice from a Home & Maker designer for ideas that a could interest prospective buyers.
Windows of opportunity
Replacement or refurbishment of existing windows could add value to your home and enhance its curb appeal. Changing the colour of window frames will transform the overall look of your property and quality double glazing will reduce energy bills.
Shake up the interior layout
Spatial flow (or the way your house is laid out) can easily be improved. Sometimes a wall is just in the wrong place or a room is a little too dark. Opening up views to the garden can add tens of thousands to the value of a home, just make sure to always seek expert advice before altering the structure of any property.
Stretch your space for a utility room
Cannot bear the sound of the washing machine rumbling anymore? Utility rooms are not just practical spaces, but also great for keeping laundry, airers and all your cleaning essentials out of the way, so it's not surpise that these spaces are becoming incresingly popular with home-buyers. While many homes don't have the space to just allocate or add in a room like this, it's all about smart solutions, and landings, bathrooms and spaces under the stairs can be cleverly fitted to meet laundry needs. Even a tall, deep, cupboard large enough to house a stacked washer dryer is all you need. You can add a touch of style to your fluff and fold routine like Catherine Zeta Jones by including black velvet padded coat hangers.
