Better Home and Gardens just released the results of a national survey asking two distinct sets of homeowners what they want to change in their home for 2018. Commonly viewed as a simple way to add value when selling your house, it seems a lick of paint isn’t actually financially rewarding at all, losing you around £500 when selling. In the Home Improvement episode called “Fifth Anniversary” in Season 3 Tim and Al introduce The Man’s Kitchen on Tool Time. The kitchen features a walk in freezer with a butcher, a gas grill, etc.
According to a report published by the National Association of Realtors , a complete kitchen renovation, a kitchen upgrade and a bathroom renovation topped the list of projects that add value to the resale price of a home. Looking to update your home? Kitchen, bathroom or whatever the room we can transform your space to be modern, functional and practical.
Every homeowner must pay for routine home maintenance, such as replacing worn-out plumbing components or staining the deck, but some choose to make improvements with the intention of increasing the home’s value. Certain projects, such as adding a well thought-out family room – or other functional space – can be a wise investment, as they do add to the value of the home. Other projects, however, allow little opportunity to recover the costs when it’s time to sell.
With buyers now rating more electrical sockets over a bath tub, garage and large living room, adding more charging points to your home can add a whopping £4,000 in value to your home, costing as little as £800. Owner-occupiers, landlords, tenants, licensees, and occupiers of some houseboats and park homes can apply for a disabled facilities grant, provided the work is for the benefit of a disabled person who lives or will live in the property.
Dark, poky living spaces don’t need to stick around. If you’re faced with black slate tiling and narrow passageways between rooms, think about how your house improvements can create light-filled, open living spaces. You may want to consider in your design to knock out the walls separating the dining, kitchen and living areas Or if the walls can’t be removed completely for structural reasons, look into simply widening the openings between each space so that you can move more freely throughout the greater area.
