Are you looking to add value to your home through house improvements? Whilst not every type of home improvement is guaranteed to boost the value of your home, there are a few that on average work to increase your home’s appeal.
Will Home Improvements Increase My Home’s Value?
When it comes to adding value to your home, there are two ways to look at it. Do you want to add personal value to your home for your family in terms of the useability of space and memory-creating features? Alternatively, do you want to add monetary value to your home in order to improve the future resale value of your home? At RB Windows, we can help to suggest home improvements that tick both boxes.
When looking at ways to increase the value of your home, it is also worth looking at the price ceiling of your local area. If you have already made a number of improvements to your home, it may have already reached the top level of value for your area or street. Take a look at the average house prices for your style of property in your local area to get a good idea of what your house could be worth. Then, factor in the potential added cost any home improvements you make could add.

Improve Your Garden Space and Add Useable Space
Since the pandemic had more people spending time at home, outdoor space has become more important than ever. Spending some time tidying up your outdoor space, no matter what size, is high on the list of best home improvements to increase value. Simply neatening up lawns, clearing pathways or adding potted plants can improve the appeal of your home to potential buyers, as well as making it a more pleasant space to enjoy yourself.
Adding Useable Space in Your Garden With a Garden Room
Living in Britain brings its own challenges weather-wise, so it’s not surprising that having a covered outdoor space increases the value of a property for buyers. In particular, garden rooms have gained popularity in recent years as spaces that can be used for both work and recreation. Garden rooms can be fitted out with electricity and insulation just like an indoor room and a good quality garden room could help to improve the value of your home.
Extend Your Home
Useable living space is one of the top attractions in the property market so finding spaces to add living space in your home is the ideal way to increase your home’s value. There are plenty of ways to do this from conversions to home extensions, the most important thing is to be smart with your space. For example, could a cramped and unused loft space be converted into an extra bedroom? Similarly, if you mainly use your drive to store your car, could you convert your garage into an extra living space or extended kitchen?
Is there space at the rear or side or your property to build a conservatory to add value? Alternatively, if your conservatory is old, could it be converted into a solid roof structure to be used year-round? A well-planned house extension could be a great way to upgrade your home and add value.
