How to Add Value to Your Home on a Budget

If you are looking for budget-friendly ways to add value to your home, then you have come to the right place. You may have already tried the most popular techniques, including applying a fresh coat of paint to the walls and sticking to neutral colour schemes but did you know there are many other wallet-friendly ways to increase the value of your home?

From choosing the right material for your kitchen worktops to investing in outdoor storage, keep reading to discover five brand new ways that you can add value to your home this year.

1.   Choose granite worktops

If your kitchen worktops have seen better days and you are thinking about replacing them, you should know that granite worktops, when installed properly, will last a lifetime. Scratch, chip, and crack resistant, granite is one of the hardest materials you can find for your kitchen worktops. Plus, it is also unaffected by heat.

Ideal for those looking for a touch of luxury, check out our granite worktops Bolton showroom and see the range of styles that can be installed over your existing structure for maximum convenience and affordability.

2.   Invest in outdoor storage

Although not something you may have considered, you will be surprised at just how many buyers look for outdoor storage solutions when evaluating a property for sale. If you have a shed in your garden, make sure that it is in good condition and that it is freshly painted.

For those who don’t have enough space for a shed, consider what other storage solutions your outdoor space could offer and showcase these to potential buyers.

3.   Focus on security

Even if you can’t afford the latest smart security systems for your home, that doesn’t mean that you can’t add other security features to your property. From premium locks and motion sensors to floodlights, all of these basics could add up to £600 to the value of your home and only cost you around £100 to buy and install.

4.   Refresh the front door

Another aspect of your home that you might not think about when it comes to renovations, your front door is one of the first elements of your property that buyers will see, so you need to make sure that it is in good shape.

Ideally, you should purchase a new door if yours is in a bad way, but if this is beyond your budget, a fresh coat of paint can work wonders.

5.   Replace your stair carpet

Replacing the carpet in your whole home can be incredibly expensive, so why not instead focus your efforts on the areas in your home that receive the most traffic, such as the stairs?

Whether you choose a neutral shade that will appeal to the masses or a more eye-catching print that will act as a focal point, make sure that you invest in high-quality underlay as this will prolong the life of your carpet and enhance comfort underfoot.

You can add new carpet to your stairs for under £100, and this home improvement could add up to £400 to the value of your property.
